‘Hard Knocks’ Sequel? Jets’ Rex Says Not Happening

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — With Rex Ryan and Mike Tannenbaum shooting a scene for “CSI: NY” and linebacker Bart Scott slated to appear on “TNA Impact,” the question had to be asked: Are Rex’s prime time Jets interested in a “Hard Knocks” sequel?

“I think we’re done with it,” Ryan told a chuckling NFL Network interview crew from the NFL Scouting Combine.

Millions of viewers got an eyeful and earful of the Jets last summer on HBO’s five-episode reality series. “Hard Knocks” covered preseason with the team, cuss words and all – and there were a lot of them.

Ryan plays himself in an episode of “CSI: NY” shot Wednesday in Los Angeles. Ryan said he and Tannenbaum appear in a scene with actors Gary Sinise and Eddie Cahill that is scheduled to air in the spring.

“Mike Tannenbaum and I were down there and we just assumed we were going to be extras, and they’re like, ‘Oh no, we’ve got some lines for you.’ We’re like, ‘Give me that! Oh my goodness,'” Ryan said. “Mike Tannenbaum was a diva, though. I mean, he really was. He had the makeup, the hair going, he had all kinds of things.”

Ryan is keeping alive what apparently is a new tradition for Jets coaches: Predecessor Eric Mangini made a cameo on “The Sopranos” in 2007.

    Every fan, especially true, die hard fans, will watch any show with a plot and or cast centered around their team. Even if Hard Knocks was a failure last year and I felt they should not being it back, I would still watch every minute of every single episode! And the boys who commented up top are right… Last season’s installment of HBO’s Hard Knock’s was by far, without a doubt the best ever. No team… not “Americas team,” not the dopey Chiefs or the penitentiary JV, Cincinnatti Bengals, could bring as much fun, substance, swagger, etc as The Ryan Express!

  2. David Spiegel says:

    I would watch a sequel of Hard Knocks in a heartbeat. That was the best Hard Knocks yet and no team can match the Jets.

    My one issue with this whole situation is, why is CSI:NY shot in LA? Ridiculously fake. I do not approve.

  3. Kevin Harrison says:

    There should definitely be a sequel. It was the highest rated season of “Hard Knocks” w/ Rex Ryan as the star. And, the story hasn’t been completed yet with the Jets not winning the Super Bowl after coming close to the game twice. So, a sequel would be the perfect way to end the story since Rex guaranteed a Happy Ending next year !

    Would love another Hard Knocks…
