We have ran polls on Dawgs By Nature in the past, asking whether the Cleveland Browns would be a good fit for HBO's "Hard Knocks," an all-access documentary that chronicles a team's progress through the entire duration of training camp. There was a recent discussion about it again in a FanShot. No matter where the players go, NFL Films is there to film them. It last drew popularity during the 2010 season, when loud-mouthed head coach Rex Ryan and the New York Jets were featured. In 2011, the show was cancelled due to the lockout.

There wasn't any real sign that Cleveland was a candidate for the show, but now we can officially rule them out: the Miami Dolphins agreed to be featured on the show this coming season. Miami has some intriguing storylines this year as they try to make a splash in the Patriot-dominated AFC East. First, new head coach Joe Philbin, formerly the offensive coordinator of the Green Bay Packers, will be installing a new offense. There will also be a three-way quarterback competition between Matt Moore, David Garrard, and Ryan Tannehill (that sounds similar to the Jake Delhomme, Seneca Wallace, and Colt McCoy competition from two years ago). Running back Reggie Bush, who revitalized his career a year ago, is sure to be a prominent face for the show too.

What do you think? Are the Miami Dolphins an intriguing enough of a selection to get you to watch?
