Ryan garnered some negative press for his use of his profanity-laced tirades in even the light moments. The phrase, “Now lets go get a ***damn snack!”, was repeated by everyone after an angered Ryan ended a team meeting with it after a horrible scrimmage.
The often boastful Ryan has seen the error of his ways the past season and getting a sound byte from him since their offseason started is rare and he wants to keep it that way. Of course the decision really is up to Johnson for “Hard Knocks”.
I really don’t see the Jaguars being a major player unless there is just no other option. The franchise is in a rebuilding mode and even if they were offered it, I think they should decline as well.
The perfect team for HBO to pursue would be the 49ers and would shock me if they didn’t get an offer. The club is on the rise to what fans think of as the “49ers of the 80’s” that had Jerry Rice and Joe Montana.
The 49ers added former New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs and wide receiver Mario Manningham, to their roster. The sub-plot of these two being on the team that they defeated in the 2012 NFC Championship Game would sell ratings.
