🏈 Rich Eisen thinks the Pittsburgh Steelers would be the perfect team for HBO’s Hard Knocks.

“You’d love to see Tomlin talk behind the scenes,” Eisen said on the Rich Eisen Show. “You would love it. And I know everybody who thinks that I’m in the tank for Tomlin and the national media is in the tank for Tomlin and it’s because we’ve been cast under his spell when we’re talking to him off camera.” Eisen envisioned scenarios such as star quarterback Russell Wilson enjoying Pittsburgh’s famous Primanti Brothers sandwiches on the show, alongside his wife, Ciara, and their kids. Imagining Justin Fields finding his way through the challenges of being a backup quarterback. Eisen also said that Najee Harris, T.J. Watt, and Cam Hayward, would add depth to the show.

The Steelers’ postseason appearance in 2023 takes them off the hook to get selected for the show, and they’re surly not going to volunteer, so Eisen’s hopes of seeing the Steelers on Hard Knocks will have to wait.

🏈 Russell Wilson was pumped to see his North Carolina State Wolfpack advance to the Final Four with a 76-64 win over Duke. Wilson played at North Carolina State (2007-2010) before playing his last year of college football at Wisconsin.
