Woody Johnson has spoken today. He was quoted as advising that, when asked about the Jets participating in “Hard Knocks” once again, that “no formal offer has been made”.
However, he left the door open, saying he would consider it, and making it sound like informal talks have begun.
Earth to Woody: Really bad idea. Please don’t do it.
Oh, it would be entertaining. The Jets certainly have storylines that would make for great television. Tim Tebow himself. Tebowmania sweeping the fans over. Tebow vs. Sanchez. The
locker room. Who is behind which QB? The questions that will be asked. The relationship with the religious Tebow vs the cussing Rex Ryan.
And don’t forget about the wide receivers. How will Santonio Holmes behave? Will he bring everybody down? How will he be treated?
The Jets always have storylines, and this season they have even more. From HBO’s perspective, it makes perfect sense to approach the Jets. They were the highest rated version
of the series the last time, and they only have more to say now.
And it will certainly generate revenue for the Jets, which as we all know is the single most driving factor for Woody Johnson.
But the Jets must say no.
