HBO Chooses New York Jets for 'Hard Knocks'

rex_ryan_new_york_jets_mark_sanchezLast year, the idea of putting the New York Jets on HBO's 'Hard Knocks' documentary series might have seemed a poor choice. They had a rookie head coach, a rookie -- albeit high profile -- starting quarterback, and they were coming off a less than stellar, no-playoffs season.

This year, however, it's a whole 'nother story. The Jets are smokin'. As a Miami Dolphins fan, this pisses me off like you can't imagine. But for HBO, the New York Jets are a great pick for 'Hard Knocks,' the show that takes viewers into the training camp of an NFL team to watch them put it together for season to come.

Showtime picks up Inside the NFL

by Allison Waldman, posted Jun 4th 2008 8:22AM
NFLAs Bob Sassone wrote in his report about Inside the NFL ending its HBO run last February, the NFL was reporting that the show would find a home on another network. It has. And I can tell you now that Inside the NFL will be appearing weekly on Showtime. It'll be a collaboration with CBS Sports and NFL Films. That said, I think we can expect to see CBS talent on the show.

In its most recent edition on HBO, Inside the NFL was hosted by Bob Costas, with expert input by former players and current broadcast analysts Dan Marino, Cris Collinsworth and Cris Carter. Costas and Collinsworth are NBC employees, and Carter is part of ESPN. That leaves Danny Boy. And yes, he is a CBS guy, a regular commentator on The NFL Today every Sunday during football season. I'll bet you right now that Dan will be on the show.

Inside the NFL is a unique weekly highlight show -- one of the best ever -- because shows the games up close from the viewpoint of NFL Films. Those cameras get inside of the game more than TV cameras. They're films, not TV and the production values are like a documentary film. As a longtime football fan, I'm really glad that Inside the NFL will go on. This year will be its 32nd on the air.

Onion A.V. Club picks its favorite Super Bowl highlight films

NFL FilmsToday was a very good day for the Onion A.V. Club. Not only do they have a great interview with Stephen Colbert, but they also list their twelve (or, in this case, XII) favorite Super Bowl highlight reels. You know the ones I'm talking about; they're the ones produced by NFL Films that ESPN used to show in order right before the current Super Bowl kicks off. This year, they'll be showing Supes I through XXXVIII in order on ESPN Classic from Saturday, 2/4, from 3 AM until 11 PM, then ESPN2 shows I through XXXIX out of order from 11 PM on  Saturday, 2/4, until 6 PM on Sunday, 2/5 (ESPN will have a five hour (!) pre-game show on Sunday, from noon to 5 PM).
