Detroit Lions: Jon Gruden, Raiders an ‘excellent choice’ for ‘Hard Knocks’

They can't say no, no matter how much they'd want to, so the Detroit Lions have taken to promoting another team for the HBO series "Hard Knocks."

“I think Jon Gruden is an excellent choice for that show," Patricia said. "I think the Oakland Raiders and everything they‘ve got going on right now would be fantastic viewing for everybody to watch."

The Lions and Raiders are two of five teams that can be compelled to take part in a series that got its start way back in 2001.
