325-pound Vince Wilfork buries jumpers, calls himself ‘modern day Jordan’

Vince “I’m way more athletic than I look” Wilfork can be seen employing this strategy in HBO’s most recent “Hard Knocks” promo, which captured the 33-year-old nose tackle draining jumpers – and gallons of sweat – in a pickup game at his new home in Houston, Texas.


The dog days of camp extend to the film crew, which is working around the clock, using a crew of 30 workers to shed light on what it’s like as the Texans prepare for O’Brien’s second season at the helm.

The episodes are set to run over a 28-day period that begins on August 11 at 10 p.m. ET.

Hard Knocks (HBO, 10 p.m.): Assuming all the concussions and domestic violence charges and phony judicial systems and just the general tiresome maintenance of all the worst aspects of unexamined American orthodoxy-assuming all that hasn’t turned you off the modern NFL, have we got the show for you! The first show comes from months of planning and weeks of constant filming. Fourteen robotic cameras are dispersed through O’Brien’s office, general manager Rick Smith’s office, the staff meeting room and four different position group rooms.

It’s been a banner day for NFL fans who are thinking about going the cord-cutting route. In a teaser for the show, Wilfork shows off his hoops skills. J.J. Watt aside, the team is flush with story lines even before the preseason starts.


Q: How will you all watch the premiere tonight? Enjoy, have fun and make sure you follow SportsRadio 610 on Twitter and Facebook for all the updates.
