HBO's Hard Knocks is one of the best shows of the year, especially for football fans. HBO has had some tough luck trying to find a team to profile this year. According to Big Cat Country, the Jets have turned HBO down, and the Jaguars are still standing as a volunteer.
The Jaguars have interest in doing the program. "We did express interest, and at this point we don't know what HBO's plans are," Jaguars spokesman Dan Edwards told the Florida Times-Union back in April. The Jaguars have been on a similar show in the past. For the 2004 season, the Jaguars appeared on the NFL Network "Summer" series in "Jaguars Summer".
While the Jaguars might not be an obvious choice for a show like this, they do have some elements that could make them an exciting choice. A new coach trying to instill his philosophy. A second year quarterback trying to make his mark after struggling mightily last year. And a rookie wide receiver taken in the top ten, and those are always good for some sound bites.
