It's becoming redundant at this point, but two more teams have said no to HBO about appearing on its Emmy-winning sports show.

USA Today reports both the San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins have turned down the opportunity to appear on the latest installment of "Hard Knocks" this summer.

Niners president Jed York took to Twitter Wednesday to announce he's not interested, citing potential "distractions" as the reason why.

There had been speculation San Fran could get the part due to charismatic coach Jim Harbaugh, but it was never a realistic option considering his tight-lipped ways with the media.

Another pseudo-secretive head coach, Mike Shanahan, wants no part of the program, saying on PFT Live that it would not feel right with cameras and microphones hovering over the Skins' every move.

“I just didn’t feel comfortable with being in that situation,” Shanahan said. “You know, I can’t be myself. I don’t think coaches can be their self and I’d like players to concentrate on their job. I don’t know if it’s old school or what. You know, for me I just didn’t feel comfortable with that atmosphere.”

If you're keeping score at home thus far, four teams, including the Atlanta Falcons and New York Jets, have now said 'thanks, but no thanks'. As of the moment, it appears the Jacksonville Jaguars are the favorites, with HBO expected to announce its decision in the coming weeks.
