New York Jets’ Rex Ryan Not Interested in “Hard Knocks”
If you’re a fan of the HBO show “Hard Knocks,” don’t expect to see the New York Jets this time around.
The New York Jets are reportedly divided on whether or not they will participate in the training camp reality show. This would be the second year the Jets have been featured on the program, their first year was back in 2010. While Jets owner Woody Harrison would love to feature his team on the show, coach Rex Ryan is, surprisingly, against the idea.
Ryan, whose colorful language was a highlight of the 2010 version, has said he doesn’t think it’s a good idea for the Jets the participate. They are coming off a disappointing 8-8 season that turned ugly with locker-room infighting and quarterback Mark Sanchez’s struggles, This summer they’ll add quarterback Tim Tebow to the drama.
If the Jets decline the offer, the show may instead focus on the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens.
But it may not be such a bad idea to forgo the TV shows this time around. After all, with all the attention the Jets will be getting from having Tebow on their team, they’ll have more than enough TV cameras swarming around them anyway.
