5. Hard Knocks: Los Angeles review

Now that the five episodes of Hard Knocks are in the past and the regular season is on the horizon, it’s time to talk about the best moments for the LA Chargers on the show.

Throughout the season, Anthony Lynn was put in a number of situations where he excelled. In episode one, he dealt with having coronavirus himself and getting his team prepared for it. In episodes two and three, he obviously had to get training camp kicked into full gear without much in-person preparation beforehand.

In episode four, he dealt with social justice and navigating the movement for the franchise. Finally in episode five, he has to work hard at making the roster while dealing with everything else that was happening. I gained even more respect and love for Coach Lynn from seeing him work week to week.

My favorite Chargers’ stars from this season were Ingram, Allen, Taylor, Joey Bosa, Herbert, Fehoko, and Harris. Whenever these guys were on screen, the show was an absolute delight to watch with all the hard work they were putting in or even just the stuff they were doing on the side.

Herbert, Bradwell, and Fehoko impressed me with their storylines in general. I was rather low on Herbert as a prospect when he was drafted, or at least had him somewhere in the B- to C+ range. He seemed to work really hard and pay close, close attention to detail.

The throws he unleashed that even impressed the vets were awesome to see. Bradwell and Fehoko seemed to get better in each successive episode from rough starts.
