Jets expect Belichick to be watching Hard Knocks

The silliest concern we’ve seen raised in the New York media since the Jets’ involvement in Hard Knocks was announced is the notion the team could be at a competitive disadvantage.

Anyone voicing that worry hasn’t watched previous seasons.  Nothing is given away, although a few sensitive players could have their feelings hurt when they hear what’s said behind closed doors.

The leadership in New York doesn’t sound too worried, and joked that their rivals to the North to be watching the show closely.

“Do I think Bill Belichick will be watching us?” G.M. Mike Tannebaum asked.  “If I was
working for Bill, these are the type of projects he’d have me doing.”

Ryan said plays and strategy won’t be given away

“I think, you know — I trust, you know, let’s just throw a guy out there — anybody,” Ryan said. “Bill Belichick. Let’s just throw him out there.”  (Cue uproarious media laughter.)  “He’s going to do his due diligence. He’s going to do
his work, anyway. He’s going to have a huge opinion on our players, one
way or the other.”

  1. Yes, the 3 time Super Bowl winning coach has nothing better to do between August and November than watch an HBO show about a soon to be 6-10 team.

  2. Bellicheat does not need to watch an edited show. He’ll have his own guy in the bushes with a camera.

  3. This can work both ways… How do you know what is on the show is the actual stuff and isn’t a smoke screen?
    All that Belicheck has to watch is how Edelman and Moss are both going to be shut down by our lockdown corners, giving Brady noone to throw to especially since Welker is out.

  4. I think once the Jets fan base stop worrying about Belichick they can be taken seriously. Until then they are just a circus starring the incredible melting man.

  5. Bellichek can watch the end of his AFC east dominance before his very own eyes, as power shift takes place in 2010 to the Jets. No worries Bill, dolphins and woodchucks still suck you will have the wildcard.

  6. I don’t think Bill needs to watch HBO to lead New England to their 8th division title in the last 10 years. The Patriots own the AFC East and will continue to do so.

  7. Yes, BB will be eating his popcorn watching Hard Knocks. What a stupid statement.
    We all know how hard knocks gets all the intimate details of a team’s game planning.
    Actually maybe we all get to see Vernon Gholston making a tackle since he hasn’t done it since he has been in the league?
    Or they could go on a MickeyD’s run with Ryan.
    Word of advise to HBO, don’t let Braylon Edwards hold the camera since it will break when he drops it.

    Creative You get a +5 for being able to count top 6.

  9. As a Ravens fan I appreciate Ryan as a DC. Can he get any worst as a HC though…shut the F up Mr Comedian…dude’s a huge ass like his father

  10. This is so great. Jests think they are cock of the walk only to find out they are only cocks. New England is still the division winners. You are still looking up at us and you always will. BB is a better coach than Ryan and a better GM than Tannebaum. Every year it’s fun to watch them fall.

  11. I think Rex Ryan has some kind of infatuation with Belichick. He spends the off season worrying about Belichick and the Pats. Last year it was not kissing rings, this year he is worried about BB watching Hard Knocks.
    It goes beyond that. Tannanbaum picked that waste of space Gholston because he thought Belichick wanted to draft him….. When the NY Jets, their front office, their coaches, their players, and their fans, stp worrying about the Pats, they will become a legit contender, until then, they will continue to be the Jetriots. they have been pilfering players and coaches for almost 15 years, and the result of that: Patriots 3 rings, Jetriots 0 rings…….

  12. Wow, Jets fans are pretty pathetic. In the beginning of last year the jets won some games and all these jets fans came out of no where. They beat the pats and they got really annoying like they did something great. Of course they disapeared when they started losing. They got lucky playing 2 teams who didnt care about thier last games and backed into the playoffs.
    Did the pathetic jets fans come back with some humility? No. They were acting like champions again.
    Why do they care about the pats so much? There are a few teams that I absolutely despise but they have won recent superbowls. I will never think my team is better then them until they win a superbowl.

  13. See beating the Patriots is all the Jets will ever care about, the lucky run last year against the sorry ass teams they faced doesn’t mean a thing.
    they beat the pats for the division and they’ll all be celebrating in the streets. 41 years and counting.

  14. Who worries about Bellecheat. But the bandwagon pat fans are fun to listen to. A soon to be 6-10 team, that is either comedy material or an example just how myopic they are.
    But as it was mentioned, Bill doesnt need to watch a show, hes got camera’s everywhere..

  15. How do even begin to get your head around this story. Coaches who are sickening. Arrogant players. The NFL’s ugliest fans (What is it about the NY-Boston corridor? Toxic waste?)
    If there is some way that both teams can lose, the great majority of NFL fans will be happy.

  16. Don’t worry Rex, Belicheat will have his own camera team at Jets Training Camp… He won’t have to watch the show on TV…

  17. Don’t worry Rex, Belicheat will have his own camera team at Jets training Camp… He won’t have to watch the show…

  18. You know that BB is in the head of Rex Ryan just by the way he mentions him whenever he or the Jets do something… The Jets and their coach are still no better than Avis…Playing second fiddle to the bassman!

  19. Bellicheat will have that sheet Tivo’d/DVR’d, the whole nine… I wouldn’t be surprised if he pays a camera man to be an insider for him…
    BELLICHEAT! BELLICHEAT! BELLICHEAT! We’ll never forget!!!

  20. It’s not like Belicheck doesn’t already have this footage anyway. The guy’s been watching the Jets (and every other AFC east team) version of Hard knocks for the last decade.

  21. I hate the Jets but I love Rex Ryan, I don’t get why people hate him so much.
    The following are reasons why he is awesome:
    1. He is fat (The funniest people and animals are always fat)
    2. He is loud
    3. He pisses everyone off
    4. He is bold
    5. He will tell you what he thinks.
    6. He is not PC (I hate overly PC people)
    7. He is a damn good coach (That Jets offense was not talented enough to get that far)
    8. He is fat

  22. ampats – those were two good ones regarding Vernon and Braylon and I am a Jets fan.
    As far as the Pats, they are still the AFC East champs and will be so until we prove otherwise. The Jets have a very good defense and a strong running game. The biggest question this year will be whether Sanchez takes it to the next level or not.
    As for Ryan, I think he has some things to learn, but his guys seem to love him and while he talks the talk, he did back up his words with his actions.
    Should be a fun year.

  23. Pats fans, three words, AFC Championship Game. When you get back there give us a call. You’re dominance ended at 18-1. The talk from Rex and Tanny is all in good fun, you just can’t handle it cause your so sensitive that your “dynasty” is OVER. Enjoy 2nd place for the next 10 years.

  24. pats rings are all tainted.
    since camera gate how may superbowls have they won? Think about it, this belichick was a loser head coach his whole career then he starts winning? with a team with no good wrs? put tom brady on the lions or even a mediocore team like the bears I bet he would suck. Every player who leaves that teams ends up being horrible. Its all the cheating. its easy to win when you know exactly what the other teams is gona do. Just like the bucs cheated in the superbowl. They had spys just like the pats.
    RAIDERS ARE THE REAL DYNASTY TEAM!
    they should have atleast 3 rings in the last 10 years!

  25. Man, does Rex have a ‘Man-Crush’ or what?! He’s obsessed with BB!
    And yes, I’ll pass on watching this wanna-be team not make the play-offs. Desperation always seeks attention- Psych 101.
    If it’s not New England putting the Jets in their AFC place, it’s the Giants stealing the NY NFL thunder. Some things will never change. Somehow the term Gang-Green fits, it’s something nobody really wants.

  26. G.M. Mike Tannebaum asked. “If I was working for Bill, these are the type of projects he’d have me doing.”
    ———————————————————
    – Along with picking up his dry cleaning, shining his shoes, making his coffee, and any other useless task Tannebaum would qualify for.
    The Jets are like a homely unpopular chick that keeps mentioning all the hot chicks to try and associate herself with them.
    Pathetic
    Losers

  27. This is wonderful! Good for the Jets. Let the media and the world relish in all that is green and annoint them the new darlings of the NFL.
    Forget about the Patriots. There is a new sheriff in town.
    Yes. Just put those Belichick and Brady led three time champion Patriots out of your head.
    They aren’t there.
    They aren’t there.

  28. I see the last 3 remaining Pats fans have piped in.
    I think what Rex said was supposed to be tongue in cheek. Everyone knows the Patriots are no longer relevant.

  29. Hey Bill Belicheat,
    Got news for you. You won’t be stealing any Super Bowls from the freaking Jets. Wait till the Steelers are on Hard Knocks – then you might want to pay attention.
    If you are spying on the Jets, then the football nation is laughing. Do you have to cheat to be better than 3rd best in your own division this year?
    Sincerely, Your biggest fan,
    Italian Army Guy

  30. what a complete joke – Ryan is SUCH a fat D-Bag, love how the NY press thinks the Jets are going to win the division and automatically be in the SB. Complete joke – there 2nd year RB will get hurt, LT sucks and the best QB in the world will have to throw and have about 30 picks……and that best defense in the league. – what a complete joke. Cant wait to see Ginn blow by Revis again and hear what the press says about him then……most overated team in the NFL.

  31. I have to laugh at the Jets fans here. You back into the playoffs because 2 teams lie down for you the last 2 weeks of the season, get lucky and think you’re the second coming of the Patriots.
    Enjoy watching the playoffs this year unless other teams give you the freebies they did to close out the season last year once again.

    ===================
    Wow! You were making so much sense, and then you had to go and start talking about how the Raiders “should have at least 3 rings in the last 10 years”. Don’t you need a couple of things called “talent” and “coaching” to do that?
    I mean, unless you are the Bill Belicheat-led Patsies, and the NFL Commissioner’s office runs interference for you while you steal Lombardi trophies. Then you need neither talent nor coaching.

  33. Another thing that’s funny about this, next year at this time the Jests will be picking in the top half of the draft, the fans will think they are only a player or two away from being a continder. As soon as your team doesn’t need to sell PSL’s you’ll be back to 4-12 again and again and again……….

  34. The PatCheatus Coach BelliCheat is a Jersey Guy… I heard he had the Florham Park Location wired before the Jets Moved in…
    Patsies SUCK…..
    And to all the Bandwagon POS Patsie Fans … YOU SUCK TOO….
    Moss is Back to Old Tricks…

    A reasonable Jets fan. Wait…what? 😀
    I’m a Pats fan & I’ve been told off for making the case that the Jets did better than the Pats last year but IMO it’s just a fact. Who cares how the Jets made the playoffs? Not me. 2 playoff wins>0.
    I don’t hate RR. Sometimes he even cracks me up. I’m not big on guys who talk TOO much…and I think he is guilty of that at times. But I have hella respect for him as a defensive mind.

    Thank you for the Cliffs Notes synposis of every hilarious Jets joke we have heard repeated on here, ad nauseum, for month’s now. I didn’t even have to read any further after your post.
    But, and this is just a guess dumb ass, if your coach has been caught videotaping teams to steal their plays, don’t you think he might also be watching documentaries and PR pieces to get more insight?
    Go lick a window somewhere else, you simple-minded douche bag.

  37. For all the moronic Jests fans you were given a free pass into the playoffs ! The Colts played Sally and her ssisters in the second half of the game that got you in. I know that you dumped your Top Special teamer,Your number one RB and the cover safety who allowed Revis to bump at the line cause he knew he had coverage over the top! You brought in A freaking Deadbeat Dad to play LCB. So where is the significant change that makes any of you think that your team will be better than a 6-10 team this year? Oh I know what gave you that false impression, Fat boy went on a diet and when he was delerious from lack of fatty product he declared it to be so!!! 41 years and counting!!!

  38. How come the Steelers fans are always the most irate about “Camera Gate”??? I never hear Colts fans whine about about, and the Pats knocked them off year after year in the playoffs. I never hear the Eagles fans whine, or the Panthers fans whine, and those teams lost the SB to the Pats. Its always the Steelers fans…..
    I read a comment from a Steelers fan a while back, mentioning how the taping that the Pats did, allowed them to beat the Steelers in the second half, after getting dominated in the first half. So I looked it up, and the Pats had the lead at halftime in both of those playoff games, and the Steelers outscored NE in the 2nd half, both times….. Just making a point, the Steelers are just as obsessed about the Pats as the Jets are………

  39. The five things that will never be said by a New York Jets fan:
    1. “Man, that Super Bowl title last year was such a great memory”
    2. “I’ll take Shakespeare for $1,000, Alex.”
    3. “The Jets rule the football universe in NY and Jersey, the Giants wish they were a class organization like we are.”
    4. “I just couldn’t find a thing at Walmart today.”
    5. “Checkmate”

  40. RaiderSteve and Italian Army guy……you two are so original with the Belicheat stuff……DO you still tell poo-poo and pee-pee jokes as well. Change the record you donkeys………..

  41. i love confident pats fans, but shhhhh don’t mention the 33-14 DRUBBING you got from the ravens AT HOME in the first round. everyone will think u r still relevant if u talk sh*t about the jets. jets r the future, pats are the past. get used to it.

  42. A few years ago the Pats caught a Jets employee with a telescope outside the practice facility.
    The Pats chose to throw the guy out rather than run a snitch to the NFL.
    And for all of you who think the Pats are done, think again. Just because the Jets won the March superbowl with some free agent signings, does not mean they will go anywhere in the playoffs unless someone lays down for them. They are still the Jets, no matter how loud the HC is.
    LT is a washed up crybaby, Cromartie is made of glass. Your QB sucks. Didn’t he have like 30 turnovers on his own last year?
    Pats are still division champions, so deal with it until they win the division again. Brady will be back to his old self again, BB is taking over the defense, and there will be receivers this season besides Moss and Edleman.

  43. It puts the lotion on the skin says:
    “So I looked it up, and the Pats had the lead at halftime in both of those playoff games, and the Steelers outscored NE in the 2nd half, both times”
    You had to look it up superfan?
    Do read the scores monday morning in the paper wearing your Brady jersey?

  44. Bellicheat will record every episode. Heck, it wouldn’t surprise me if he showed up with a gray wig on and a long beard and he was holding a camera. Especially, when it came time for player and personnel meetings.

    Yeah it seemed pretty clear that Rex and the GM were just kidding. Rex was pretty much just doing stand up, stop getting all emotional over it.

  46. Mike Francessor clearly hates the Jets…uhhhhh Kay. If He didn’t repeat himself 45 times per show he could do it in an hour, He’s so pissed nobody cares about his oppinions on any other topic he bashes the superbowl bound Jets just to get people to call in. After he finishes his 12th bottle of soda today he can wash it down with a supersized milk shake and hand the show over to Marv Albert…..Powahhh fohwaad

  47. all these pats fans are pretty funny. Do i need to remind you of what happend last year, so you call yoursleves the division champs all you want just remeber you GOT HAMMERD and i mean HAMMERD by the ravens last year. give it up the pats are a 3 place team behind the jets and dolphins. just incase you pats do not understand YOUR TEAM IS DONE. they are rebuilding now and might be a good teram in about 5-6 years from now. They will go 5-10 this year. and for anybody to bring up sanchez throwing picks look what he did when it counted. and for anybody who wants to know when it counts, it counts in the playoffs, where most of your teams have not seen in many years.

  48. How paranoid can one team be?
    Belichick is in their heads so bad it’s laughable.
    The Jets have never…..and will never…..amount to anything. It’s just a sorry, sorry franchise.

  49. It says it all that the Jets had Mark Sanchez at QB and made the AFC Championship, wheras the Pats had supposedly the Greatest QB of all time (Who was, to be fair, coming off a season in which he had major surgery) and lost in the divisional round.
    The Bottom Line: Belichick doesn’t have it anymore, who’s the best player he’s drafted over the last few years, Brandon Meriweather? Stephen Gostkowski? Julian Edelman? The 18-1 team was the most talented team that the genius Belichick had ever assembled (and kudos to him for that) but they still couldn’t win the SB? He’ll go down as one of the greatest coaches of all time (and I couldn’t care less about the spygate thing) but his time is over.

  50. I find it somewhat annoying that message boards devolve into stupid snipes from 12 year olds. A few points: 1) who cares how the Jets “backed” into the playoffs, they went on two win two playoff games on the road to prove they belonged there. 2) Ralphie – once again I tip my hat at the humor (even as a Jet diehard). This just proves, if you are going to pick on someone at least take the time to be funny about it. 3) How do you hate a rookie coach who is a success (so far) and tells it like it is? Who would you rather hang out with Rex or Bill? Lighten up, he is refreshing in sports. There are too many coaches that worry about what they say.

  51. FootballFanatik says along with his immature insults that he didn’t bother to read any further of the post
    YET he writes the entire post verbatim.
    Who is the simple mind? Take a good look in the mirror simpleton!

  52. jets have a good team but the fans are getting a little too carried away. what makes a team become a team of the future is how consistent they are over the course of a few seasons not just one not saying the jets are not the team of the future but before you attack a team like the patriots you need to take their crown as division champs in the afc east. now i dont understand why on every blog i am looking on i am seeing a lot of jet fans hating the Giants can a real jet fan please tell why you jets fans cant stand the Giants?

    Dude….read the Giants fans posts and you’ll understand.
    For the most part Jets fans have been civil in light of turds like Big Blew calling Jets fans classless 37x a day.
    But play the martyr…..

  54. Can anyone please tell me what is so scary about the Jets? Their offense will be one dimensional. Their third corner will still be exploited. And their safeties…. enough said.

  55. So once again the Jets win the Super Bowl in March. Congratulations on your victory Jets fans; what’s that now, six in a row? Ten in a row?

  56. lol jetters somehow overlookin the 31 points the pats dropped on the jets the last time they played? the jets didnt deserve to even be in the playoffs the colts shoulda jus stomped them so we wouldnt hafta hear rex ryan mouth off around the box of donuts he shoves in his mouth on an hourly basis

  57. Here are a couple of factors that play into my mind as to why the Jets are no better than the Patriots and why they will never amount to the Patriots standard during the BB era.
    -Playoff Game Loss to the January 2, 1994 Houston Oilers 24, New York Jets 0 ( I just put this in there to show that every team gets blown out in the playoffs at some point – but hey Jets fans you guys got skunked )
    -Since 1999 BB took over as Pats head coach. The jets have had 5 coaches at the helm: Parcells,Groh, Edwards, Mangini and Ryan (just another tid bit NY win percentage .518 while NE has a phenomenal .700 the only team with a better win percentage since 1999 is Indy with .711)
    -Since BB Pats have made the playoffs 6 of the last ten years. The Jets have made it 4.
    -AFC East was formed in 1960 Boston/New England Patriots have won 12 Championship titles while Jets have 4.
    -NFL Championships: Pats 3, Jets 1
    -Since BB has been behind the reigns there has been 37 Patriots players Pro Bowl appearances. While the Jets Organization has produced 29 player Pro Bowl appearances.
    I mean hey support your favortie team but you do not talk trash about things like caying the Jets are all of a sudden going to be a better team and organization than the rival Patriots. Once the Jets can touch the stats above… I will say the Jets are a competative team against the obviously dominant Patriots.

  58. XGC Sinistah
    What do any of those stats have to do with the current state of each team. I don’t think anyone is questioning which team has a better history. We are talking about right now.

  59. my point is a lot of jets fans are bashing the team when they had one better playoff season. i am not saying the jets are not getting better… they have many positive things going for them… but i believe a teams organization can not solely be based on one playoff season. in my honest opinion i am excited that the AFC east has become more competative… it makes for better entertainment….. an analogy would be watching a fight with paqiou (the boxer whatever the proper spelling is) and him losing…. definately does not mean his dominiance is over…. no person or organization is perfect…. plus i am from boston and i know it is a mutual competative nature from both NY and NE fans to get on eachother… stats just may keep the true haters from talking non factual stuff… i mean what facts can be said currently other than a better playoff for new york last year that would make some type of basis for saying new york is a better team? maybe on the verge of being more competative with new england but that is it…. dominance is displayed by history and unfortunately new england has the history to back them up while new york just has one year of deeper playoff play.
