It’s a Hard Knock Life…For Us!

Big Top or big bottom?

Once again, the Jets management shows how their heads are absolutely not in the right place.  Woody Johnson, owner of the Jets stated today that if HBO asks the Jets to be on “Hard Knocks” again this year, he would strongly consider agreeing to do the show.  It illustrates everything that is wrong with this second-rate franchise that I unfortunately can’t help but root for.

A few days ago, the best player on the team, Darelle Revis came out and said the locker room is in complete disarray.  In order to fix this team from last year, our front office decided to bring in the most controversial (right or wrong) player in the game today, Tim Tebow.  Santonio Holmes, who the Jets need to keep on the roster because he will kill the Salary Cap if he is cut, has already said that if Sanchez struggles, he will be the first guy on the sideline to start chanting for Tebow.  The Jets have done very little in improving areas of need, such as running back, wide receiver, a pass rush or an offensive line.  But Woody wants to put the spot light back on our malcontents and big mouth coach?!?!?  Makes me feel rather sick!

What did “Hard Knocks” do for the Jets last time?  Did they gain exposure that they would not have received anyway if they just went out and played football and won?  Absolutely not.  It put a huge target on their backs and fired every other team up to come out and shut us up.  With a locker room that is obviously split, and will only get worse with the upcoming QB controversy the Jets traded into, does Woody think allowing the rest of the world to see into our locker room can possibly help win football games?

The answer has to be a resounding NO.  The Jets want to sell tickets, t-shirts and make the news and back pages of the Post.  They put all of these things in front of putting a winning product on the field.  If the Jets really want to expose their team of idiots to the rest of the NFL, then I can safely say Rex and Mike Tannenbaum’s days are numbered.  This team needs to shut up, draft smart, train hard and prepare for what is going to be a bumpy ride.  They need to look at the other team in the building, observe how the Giants do business, and take some notes and model themselves after a classy franchise that is actually in the business of winning football games.  Just when you think all of the members of the circus have arrived, the Jets always manage to add another ring.  Too bad it doesn’t appear that the ring will have anything to do with the Superbowl.

  1. Looks like the signing of Rugby star Hayden Smith was a good step in the right direction. http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/story/_/id/7770107/new-york-jets-sign-rugby-star-hayden-smith-projects-te

  2. I think Hard Knocks is a great idea for the Jets. The last time they did it they made the AFC championship two years in a row. I don’t know when team publicity became a bad thing, but it is nice to be a fan of team that is talked about. Yes, I would rather have a team that wins championships but I don’t think we are that far away from achieving that goal. NO PRESS IS BAD PRESS!!!

  3. Comment # 2 for Woody. Maybe if you would concern yourself with winning a Superbowl, like the Giants and other winning organization (which encompasses all Superbowl winners for the past 43 years,) you would make more money. Putting your dysfunctional team through Hard Knox again is moronic. Any Jets fan who purchases Jets Jerseys, memorabilia, etc..,,, is reinforcing this Teams ridiculous way of conducting itself. Woody, you are an idiot. You should partner up with the Mets. Then both teams can sell T-shirts, Jerseys, with pictures of morons on it. EDB

  4. The Jets and apparently Woody are a team of Knuckleheads. Jets Fans won’t be watching any championships. We will get all the hype and at the end of the season, watch other teams in the playoffs. They will keep making the same stupid moves. It takes a lot of doofus know how to go 43 years without a championship. Meanwhile The Giants will be back in the Superbowl in a few years.

    Oh those poor pathetic Jets. The worst thing anyone can do to them is not pay attention. At one point I actually thought they were in it to win football games, but now there is no attempt to hide the fact that they are just out for the cheap headline, nothing more. The circus metaphor is apt and Woody is a half assed version of PT Barnum. Hard Knocks is perfect for them. That is their Super Bowl. I think the next move for them is to draft that mental case linebacker from ASU and maybe pick up Ochocinco and some other washed up attention whore to truly show what it means to “play like a Jet”. Get it done Tanny.

    Woody just seems to be part of the show at this point. I’m not sure how interested he is in winning. He has done absolutely nothing to calm things and just seems to add fuel to the fire. The team is a joke. I mean at this point all they are missing is a serious scandal, stay tuned to see what happens next week.
