    This is a severe overthink. The last time we did Hard Knocks we made it to the conference finals. One has not a single thing to do with the other.

    From ep5, ultimate white guy Woody Johnson says to Jermaine Johnson "we couldn't figure out what you were wearing".

    Chrebet, on the Underdog podcast, said the Jets taped 600 hours of film this off season to get the 4 hours for these 5 episodes.

    I've watched four episodes and I'm enjoying it because it's about the Jets, but... the constant leaping around on the timeline is distracting and pointless, the background music makes it feel like the whole thing is a promo video for itself, and there is so much we are not allowed to see that it gets a bit frustrating. I guess the events are too recent to reveal all that was going on, but for instance, when we see JD working the phones to try and get a trade to get JJ, it would be far more impactful if we were told who he was talking to, what he was offering and what their responses were. In 20 years or so a book may come out that will tell us those things, but as it is portrayed in episode 4 it's just JD picking up the phone and putting it down, over and over again. I didn't feel like we were being given much of a behind-the-scenes look.

    If they really shot 600 hours of footage I don't really know why there has to be so much filler. The endless slo-mo shots of people walking and pull-focus shots of logos just look a bit like a corporate video. It's slick, but for the most part it's empty.

    Also, Woody is one of the most awkward human beings I have seen.

    On the plus side, I really do get the impression that the Jets have brought in some solid talent this offseason. Between free agency and the draft they have transformed the roster and I am very optimistic going into the season, so I guess the series did its primary job.
