‘Hard Knocks’ Shows Chad Johnson Being Cut By Miami Dolphins [Video]

The second episode of HBO’s Hard Knocks showed footage of Chad Johnson being cut from the Miami Dolphins.

While cameras rolled, Miami coach Joe Philbin appeared to struggle to deliver the news to Johnson about his departure from the team. Johnson walked into Philbin’s office a day after he was arrested for domestic violence against his estranged wife Evelyn Lozada and received the bad news.

“I do my best not to fly off the handle and act irrational,” Philbin told Johnson during a meeting that lasted less than five minutes. “It’s just, I don’t know that this is working for the benefit of you, me, the Miami Dolphins or anybody else. I think you’re a good person. Trust me, I acknowledge people make mistakes.”

Johnson interrupted and tried his best to plead his case for him to remain on the team. He claimed he had “never been in trouble before.” He said he had planned to keep quite all season long. Viewers could see in Johnson’s eyes that his career is on the line as he pleaded to stay in the Dolphins program.

Philbin wasn’t buying it and finally told Johnson, “I think it’s best for both of us that we kinda part ways at this point in time.”

This was as real as reality television, eh, documentary TV gets. Ratings of the HBO show will probably suffer now that Johnson is not a part of the team.
