With an outspoken head coach in Rex Ryan, gregarious personalities like linebacker Bart Scott and defensive tackle Kris Jenkins, and enough storylines to populate the NFL ticker, the New York Jets have been the perfect candidate for HBO's Hard Knocks series, which takes viewers inside Jets training camp.
It wouldn’t be unfathomable for the Ravens, who happen to be New York’s season-opening opponent on Sept. 13, to take notes on the Jets’ inner workings. But coach John Harbaugh said the cameras fail to capture what would really interest him and his fellow coaches.
"Well, you don't see anything that we'd really be interested in seeing," he said after Tuesday afternoon's practice at McDaniel College in Westminster. "It's not like they've got their coaching script and their coaching video up. If they had that, we'd take a close look at it."
In the next breath, Harbaugh took a playful jab at Ryan, the Ravens' former defensive coordinator for 10 years.
"We do suspect that Coach Ryan has had a few of his local friends from Ellicott City out here with their cameras videotaping practice, but that's OK. He's knows what we're doing, and we pretty much know what they're doing. I'm sure there will be a few wrinkles, but it's fun to watch."
