The New York Jets aren’t happy to be featured as part of HBO’s series “Hard Knocks.”
The Jets were announced today as the next team to get a behind-the-scenes look at how they operate. The Jets couldn’t turn it down because the league requires them to appear if they haven’t appeared on a show for a certain number of years. The Jets last played in 2010.
A drama figure who will be a major part of the upcoming series. The Jets have a new quarterback in Hall of Fame candidate Aaron Rodgers, who will play his first season with the New York team after a 15-year career in Green Bay. The Jets, too, have been plagued by a prolonged playoff drought, ending the year on a losing streak despite a promising young team and a solid defense.
Rodgers shared his thoughts on Shaw’s choice during the American Century Championship Celebrity Golf Tournament in Nevada.
“We understand our appeal.” Mr Rogers said Thursday.. “There’s a lot of attention on me and there’s a lot of attention on our team. There’s a lot of expectations on our team. They’ve shoved it down our throats.” So we have to deal with it.”
Along with the Jets, the Chicago Bears, Washington Commanders and New Orleans Saints are among the candidates to be featured on the show this year.
Rodgers had only one positive reaction to appearing in Hard Knocks.
“One of the only things I love about ‘Hard Knocks’ is the voice of God that narrates it, Reeve,” Rogers said of Emmy-nominated actor Liev Schreiber. “It would be nice to meet him.”
The Jets will begin the preseason with the Cleveland Browns in the Hall of Fame game on August 3 and the regular season at home against the Buffalo Bills on Monday, September 11.
