While this hasn’t been announced, Robert Saleh says he doesn’t want to be on Hard Knocks, which leads me to believe that Roger Goodell will do whatever he wants and assign it to the Jets.
Robert Saleh, the head coach of the New York Jets, has any influence, he will strongly say “F*CK NO” to the idea of the team appearing on HBO’s “Hard Knocks.” The Jets are one of four teams that could potentially be required by the league to grant access to HBO’s behind-the-scenes training camp series if no other teams volunteer.
Saleh made it clear that the Jets are not interested in participating in “Hard Knocks,” suggesting that the decision-makers should look elsewhere. While he hasn’t received official word on the matter, Saleh’s message was clear.
The Jets are an obvious candidate for the show after trading for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is known for being Aaron Rodgers and could provide compelling content simply acting the way he is. Additionally, cornerback Sauce Gardner, the reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year, is another personality who could draw attention.
I think the Jets on Hard Knocks with Aaron Rodgers would be must-see TV. Aaron Rodgers is a character just by himself and I would love to see him and Zach Wilson who said that he would “Make his life hell”.
Last year was a great season that highlighted Dan Campbell and the Detroit Lions. It gave us some great clips and inspired America to cheer for the Lions in the latter part of last season to make the playoffs. Either way, I cant wait until football season. Summer is the second-best part of the year, behind football season of course.
