Tebow Turned Down: HBO snubs Jets, offers ‘Hard Knocks’ to Falcons


The New York Jets arguably traded for Tim Tebow for the sole reason of getting more publicity and a shot at another season of HBO’s Hard Knocks.

Unfortunately for the J-E-T-S – Jets, Jets, Jets, HBO wants to go in a different direction after offering the Atlanta Falcons the spot.

Why would HBO not want the Jets on Hard Knocks? Falcons over Jets makes no sense

I'd rather the Jets be back on Hard Knocks again over the Falcons….and I'm a Falcons fan.

Idk how I would feel if the Falcons said yes to Hard Knocks. I mean do we really need the distraction..

Hard Knocks with the Falcons this year. At least we won't have to hear Big Rex cuss every other word.

Excited for the episode when Mike Smith unveils his new 4th-and-1 strategies. MT @AdamSchefter: Falcons have been offered Hard Knocks.

HBO reportedly interested in Atlanta Falcons for 'Hard Knocks' .Nothing says zany antics like Mike Smith and Matt Ryan.

Excited about the Falcons on Hard Knocks. I expect Matt Ryan to say his name the same way Matt Damon said his on Team America.

Report that HBO is offering Hard Knocks to Falcons. Likely better for the Jets as a football team, but August TV fun takes a hit.
