Tonight is the season premier of 'Hard Knocks' on HBO. The popular documentary show will be chronicling the Cleveland Browns this summer.

There is usually a memorable moment or two in every season of 'Hard Knocks.' At least one HBO spokesman thinks tonight's episode will contain one of those moments.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, an HBO employee has told him new Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry's speech in tonight's premier is an all-timer, ranking among the top speeches in the history of the series.

In case you weren't sure what Rex speech the spokesman is referring to, it is the famous Rex Ryan address from the summer of 2010.

While he was the head coach of the New York Jets, Ryan delivered a pep talk to his team which concluded with the immortal line "Let's go get a Goddamn snack."

Landry will obviously have to be on his game to come close to topping Ryan. We're excited to see what he has in store tonight.

The season premier of 'Hard Knocks' will begin tonight at 10 p.m. ET on HBO.
