A number of teams have turned down the chance to appear on HBO's "Hard Knocks" this fall. Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum, whose team was featured last season, believes the attention helped his club. He was following advice from Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome. "I was probably the last person on board to do it and I called Ozzie Newsome, the general manager of the Baltimore Ravens, who I respect immensely, and he said just from a football standpoint he felt like they got better practices because the cameras were around," Tannenbaum said. "Everybody was giving their 'A Game,' everyday and our decision was we thought we had a great story to tell."
