Do you want to see the Bears on HBO’s Hard Knocks?

The Bears are one of four franchises eligible for the 2023 season of Hard Knocks.

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Chicago Bears fans and fans across the country.
Sign up here to participate in the weekly emailed surveys.

With the Chicago Bears in year two of the Matt Eberflus era, and with the team coming off a season without a playoff appearance, and considering the Bears have never been featured on HBO's Hard Knocks, that means our beloved Navy and Orange could be selected to participate in the popular cable series.

I know what you're thinking... 'There's no way the Bears would ever allow such an invasion at Halas Hall!'

And while the McCaskey family could strongly disagree with the Bears being picked, ultimately, the decision lies with the league.

If a team doesn't meet the criteria mentioned above, they can be picked for the show and have no say in the matter. Besides the Bears, the New Orleans Saints, New York Jets, and the Washington Commanders are all eligible to be picked for the 2023 season.

Another team could volunteer for the award-winning reality series, in which case those four would be of the book, but the odds of a team wanting to be on the show are slim.
