    Last year Kubiak was asked about it on 610 and said No he would not be interested in doing something like that. Went on to say something about the 'routine' and privacy being interrupted so i don't expect this to happen.

    I have mixed feelings on this. I'd like to see more of the Texans, but I also very much agree with Kubes comments. Besides, isn't that on HBO? I'd have to order HBO from Comcast which would add more cost on an already overpriced package I have from them.

    I doubt we'd be picked even if we wanted to be... not enough "talkers" on the team.

    There's a big difference when Ochocinco and AJ are in front of a camera off the football field...

    I'm not a fan of this for the same reasons Kubiak said.

    I'd like to see it. I think HBO does a fantastic job with that show.

    As a fan of the Texans I would love to watch this and "get to know" the players better. I think we'd really see the personal side of players and make us like some them more. If I were a coach, I'd be just like Kubiak and say absolutely not.
    Ditto, I don't wanna have to pay any more than I already do. Switched to AT&T U-Verse which is better but still don't want to pay for HBO!
    I disagree, respectfully of course. :) I know what you mean, but I think guys like Pollard and Cushing would be intense. We have lots of really cool guys too that would make it really funny - David Anderson!? But maybe I'm just being biased. I could totally see a scene where Jacoby is smarting off and then they show Andre rolling his eyes. hahah

    Would love to see this. Whats the worst that could happen anyway, we don't make the playoffs again? Maybe it has the reverse effect similar to the Bengals this year.

    And the owner has now said he wants the exposure for the team, guess who wins?

    The Chiefs and the Bengals both had huge jumps in fan base around the country from this show. Guys like Mario, Demeco, Cush and Schaub need the national exposure. (AJ is starting to get some national love already, but more is good).

    Coaches like Kubiak hate this kind of thing because the real opinion the teams has about a player is shown. And Kubiak has always protected his guys in public, Hard Knocks will expose the coaches and GM meetings.

    I don't know who wins. What I do know is that winning football games will do more for this team's image than appearing on a cable channel. If the head coach doesn't like the idea, don't do it. Or get another head coach with your viewpoint.

    Meh.... the Bengals did just fine last year after hosting the show. This would intensify our TC enjoyment ten fold. Bring it on.

    You don't know who wins between Kubiak and McNair? LOL. I do.

    It's time we got some balls and started doing something like this. I'm all for it.


    This team has been hiding in the corner like scared little kids for far too long. Time to come out into the sunlight and manage having cameras in front of us AND training for the season.

    Last time I checked, it didn't hurt the Bengals season...

    We've gotten prime time games the last two years, and will likely have more than one this upcoming year.

    I think this would be great for us. Specifically for the fans. Im a die hard Texan and I dont really know our players. Everything I know is about their stats and other stuff. I think it be cool to start putting some personalities to these guys. I would love if the 2010 Texans were on Hard Knocks.

    Not only for that reason but this could be the most anticipated season in Texan team history. Coming off our first winning season, the sexy pick of the AFC to "finally" turn the corner. It would be awesome to document the whole thing.

    Do it Mcnair/Smithiak
