The Texans have turned down a chance to appear on the HBO show “Hard Knocks.”


Damn. I understand the decision, but it would also make sense to do it to get some exposure.

Glad we turned it down. Don't need those cameras and distractions this offseason.

As a fan Im sad, because it would be sweet to watch, as a DIE HARD, I understand because it would distract them and we are so close we can taste it

Glad we passed. Saw it coming. Not Kubiak/McNair style to be on HBO.

I'm glad we're the organization that means business and keeps its focus. Closer to a Pats model rather than a Jets model.

It's a great show if you want to get your coaches fired.

07 - Chiefs - HC - Herm Edwards fired in 08
08 - Cowboys - HC - Wade Phillips fired in 10
09 - Bengals - OC Bob Bratkowski fired in 10
10 - Jets - OC Brian Schottenheimer fired in 11

I also think that there is a danger in tipping your hand on borderline players that are featured that you might want back on practice squad by having cameras recording practices, coaches meetings, etc. Hard to ignore that the Eagles stole Amendola from the Cowboys, Pats stole Woodhead from the Jets, etc. I also don't like the effect on players or coaches ego's as Ochocinco became even more of a problem after his "Child, Please" nonsense and Rex Ryan's ego continues to be the downfall of the Jets and the exposure the show gave him didn't help matters.

The show would not reflect well on mumbling Kubiak and AJ is better seen than heard. Wade came off well enough, but Jason Garrett was clearly "a star" and a shallow ego driven guy like Jerry cares about such things. Schaub's recovery would be a primary story and in light of recent revelations about players intentionally taking out stars to expose just how dependent we are on him. Martellus Bennett was exposed as a lazy unmotivated immature kid and I fear which Texan would get a label that's tough to shake. I don't want Dwight Jones or Devier Posey representing this team on TV and that position battle would also be a plotline.

It tells me, and the world....we have unfinished business, and we really don't have time for "fluff".

Great call......but it would have made a great show!

It looks like the Jags are the favorites for the show.
