Should the Giants volunteer for Hard Knocks this year?

Jolly Blue Giant : 5/13/2022 8:25 am
Hear me out….we all seem to agree that this year is a building year leading into next season when we take the next step. Chances are we won’t make the playoffs and will be subjected to being chosen next season for Hard Knocks considering we have never done it. There are only a couple teams eligible each year, so the walls are closing in. We are exempt this year with a new coach, but maybe we should just get it out of the way this year? We seem to be producing better videos and online material, some of which can probably be incorporated into the show. Then next year we focus on the next step without any distractions.
NO, not ever.

Why would any team want that?
Not a fan of the show in general  
UConn4523 : 5/13/2022 8:28 am : link
it’s not scripted but it’s heavily filtered. And social media has given us all the storylines before the show can so it’s fairly redundant content. We have close to full access already.

The don’t, but they may be forced to do it next year. Once you do it, you won’t be forced to do it.
Here is the criteria:  
Jolly Blue Giant : 5/13/2022 8:32 am : link
Those stipulation are: Teams with a first-year head coach. Teams who have made the playoffs in at least one of the past two years. Teams who have been on “Hard Knocks” in the past 10 years.
That leaves just three teams eligible to be forced into the docuseries:
Detroit Lions.
New York Jets.
Carolina Panthers.

Chances are we will be on the short list next year. I’d rather get it out of the way this year.
Giants clearly don't want to do it  
UConn4523 : 5/13/2022 8:35 am : link
and I'd hold off as long as possible if I were them too. Why on earth would you invite that noise willingly after the 10 years we just had?
hell no! Why?

I explained why. Because we may be forced to do it next year when we have a real chance at taking a leap forward. If we do it this year we are exempt for 10 years.
The Lions

Absolutely not  
Tony in Tampa : 5/13/2022 9:08 am : link
you wait until you run out of options and must do it. If you can keep dodging it maybe the show will eventually go away. That's unlikely but I will take my chances that it does.
It would feel so wrong...  
Dnew15 : 5/13/2022 9:09 am : link
but I would watch the shit out of it.

Of course, I watch it every year.

Mr high and mighty should have zero pull in this matter, this team has been a joke for 10+ years.
While I would enjoy the access to the team  
Rudy5757 : 5/13/2022 11:10 am : link
I dont think its a benefit to the team in any way and especially this season it may be a hinderance. The advantage we have this year is that no one knows what we will run on O or D. They have a general idea but we have the ability to get out of the gate fast just by surprise and teams not knowing how to prepare. This team needs all the help it can get.
They already announced

The hardknocks team...
I wish they'd cancel that trash  
LakeGeorgeGiant : 5/13/2022 12:11 pm : link
Start making the playoffs  
Reale01 : 5/13/2022 1:54 pm : link
End of discussion.
I wouldn't let the camera crew in  
Sneakers O'toole : 5/13/2022 3:59 pm : link
even if the league forced it on me.
Sure, why not. Keep challenging the status quo around here.  
Jimmy Googs : 5/13/2022 4:04 pm : link
Very least it will give this site something to talk about.

The Toney stuff alone is probably must-see tv...
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 5/13/2022 7:26 pm : link
I'm curious what the correlation between being on 'Hard Knocks' & that team's success that season. The 2010 Jets were on 'Hard Knocks'-Rex's infamous 'Let's go get a snack!' rant-& they went to the AFC Championship game.
The last thing a new head coach needs...  
Milton : 5/14/2022 1:25 am : link
...(especially a first time head coach) is to be followed by a camera crew. And there's a decent chance the Giants make the playoffs so that would remove us from consideration next year.
No, but they should have cheerleaders.  
Klaatu : 5/14/2022 7:07 am : link
And anyone who disagrees, but was lusting after Kay Adams on the other threads can bite me.

Kay left the NFLN to become a NY Giant
