UPDATE: Jets Officially Chosen for HARD KNOCKS (merged)
Jets Training Camp may be on the HBO series Hard Knocks this summer. According to this article we are the front-runners. My first reaction is that I'd be concerned about our plays and formations being out there for every opponent to see, but it would be fun to watch...
"McClain also points out that "there's talk" the Jets will be the ultimate selection. And that makes us wonder whether Monday's gasket-blowing from owner Woody Johnson regarding The Coin Flip was aimed at squeezing the league into picking the Jets."
can't understand why any fan wouldn't want this. this provides an otherwise unaccessible behind the scenes view of the team. I love this show...and would be so pumped to be able to see our Jets behind the scenes...if this is too big a distraction than this isn't a SB calibre team. they're professionals, they can handle it.
This team is brash but full of character guys and a coach that knows how to let loose but is all business when it counts, I think it would work. I think the team would play with more fire, just look at the Bungles last season, no one had picked them to do anything and they had a very good season, before we wrecked it that is.
[QUOTE=TheMikeIsHot;3529241]It would be entertaining, no doubt about that. And I'd like to see some of the inside, behind the scenes stuff that goes on with the Jets -- what fan wouldn't want to see that?
I don't think it would distract the team at all because Rex wouldn't let them get distracted.
And that whole "it's a distraction" argument was squashed when the Bengals took their division, which happens to be one of the toughest in the league.
I'm also not worried about teams gaining any sort of schematic advantage, either. It's not like they're throwing up the playbook.[/QUOTE]
We haven't won dick in 40 years so why not do this.
[QUOTE=southparkcpa;3529247]At least we gain some national notoriety.
I vote yes...............[/QUOTE]
Rex's personality is downright infectious and you gotta assume that we'd have a lot more Jets fans around the country by the time the series is over. I've watched plenty of games wearing Green and White in West Coast sports bars and believe me, we need all the help we can get!

lol how do you think we beat them? they ran the tape of the whole season non-stop during week 17
I think the exposure is great for the franchise, and I'm not really all that concerned about it as a distraction, We have hundreds of fans at our practices, what are a few cameramen going to do to really cause havoc? Nor am I really concerned in terms of competitive advantage since I'm pretty sure we can turn the cameras off anytime we're working on something specific that we don't want public.
Funny thing, is I would be shocked if we got it because of Rex..... We've seen his locker room speaches before, you really think the NFL wants a human bleep machine coach on the show? I know it's HBO, but I doubt the NFL wants to be represented with f**k this and s**t that and a**hole all over the place.
