That kind of sucks. I would have loved to see them on the show.
Happy about it. Minimize distractions, maximize the ability to concentrate on the task at hand.
The whole show would of been kubiak telling all the coaches that player:_________ is a good kid.
I am somewhat upset but at the same time they don't need that kind of pressure on them going into the biggest season of the franchise.
I think HBO would rather have the Jets than the Texans....esp with the tebow angle.....
Any team on Hard Knocks win a super bowl?
I see where y'all are coming from as far as the distractions, good point. I still would like to see some behind the scenes things though.
The Jets have already turned them down.
EDIT: Upon further review, the Jets might still be in the running.
I don't think so. And I think a few have crashed and burned...
2001 - Ravens: 10-6 and then lost in the Divisional round
2002 - Cowboys: 5-11
2007 - Chiefs: 4-12
2008 - Cowboys: 9-7, Missed the playoffs
2009 - Bengals: 10-6, Won division but lost in first round
2010 - Jets: 11-5, Lost in Conference Championship game
That's actually a better set of records than I expected.
Thank God!! I don't want that circus in town..
I applaud the Texans. Smart smart move.
That show gets in players' heads. It just does.
We don't need that junk. We can have the cameras on us after we win the SB. Not right now. In fact, Kubiak should remind those guys every day that none of them have arrived yet. We start at ZERO, just like their off-season mantra was after the playoff loss to Balty.
I keep seeing in my head that clip of Brandon Brooks mauling DL and getting into the second level and mauling LBs (in the Brandon Brooks thread). If that guy makes it here, he's going to cause headaches for defenses. He fits the Kubiak OL perfectly. He fits the ultimate model of what we look for.
Part of me would love to see the behind the scenes and all access footage of the team, but the rest of me would prefer they stay focused and make a deep run in the playoffs.
My sentiment exactly.
Wait a second...I thought last season was the biggest in franchise history???
Or was it the year before that???
No wait, I think it was the year before last...yeah, either that year or the year before that...
Im much more interested seeing a different team exposed on camera and then watching them flounder the following season.
Its so much funner that way.
Good. The Texans are a serious football team with one goal in mind: winning the superbowl. Serious teams like the Steelers, Patriots, and Giants don't do Hard Knocks.
Look who has:
1. Cowboys twice. Jerry Jones is about headlines not winning.
2. Chiefs. They have not done anything to suggest they are focused on being a winning squad.
3. Bengals. Nuff said.
4. Jets. Have good players but are more interested in the lime light than then trenches.
5. Ravens come across more serious than others on the list, but still have diva-ish tendencies.
Like I said, the Steelers, patriots, and Giants don't concern themselves with silly stuff like this. They focus on winning the Superbowl. THAT'S the mindset the Texans need to have as well.
Probably a good thing, but I'm disappointed for selfish reasons.
It would have been cool to watch our guys behind the scenes, but I'm sure some players wouldn't have taken football as seriously with all the cameras around.
Honestly, I wouldn't mind having our team on the show if we weren't expected to be contenders going into the season. If we were a decent football team but still rebuilding, like the Panthers or Cardinals for example, then I think it would be alright. But when you're expected to compete for a Super Bowl, then the team should try to minimize the distractions.
Couldn't have said it any better than that.
