The Dallas Cowboys Hard Knocks EP. 3 Review

NFL Films and HBO have pretty much rewritten the book on what sports television can be over the 20 years of Hard Knocks, so consider this audacious, three-minute flyover shot an all-time flex, the pièce de résistance, for the whole team. As Peter Schrager aptly put it, it's the Goodfellas Copacabana shot for sports TV nerds, and it will go down as one of the most indelible moments in this show's rich history. Bravo. The background: The Hard Knocks production team had a three-hour window to pull off the drone shot before a boxing match scheduled at the facility, and they stuck the landing on their 15th and final try. I want to know the name of the drone operator because a person with hand-eye coordination like that could be the functional backup quarterback the Cowboys are so desperately searching for right now. The stunning open to the third episode of Hard Knocks also served a functional purpose -- it gave viewers an intricate (literal) bird's-eye view of Dallas Cowboys headquarters
