Contrary to popular belief, we will not witness Tebow-mania up close and personal, nor more of Rex Ryan’s salty, foul-mouthed epithets on the boob tube this summer.

“TV sources” tell the NY Daily News that the Jets will not be featured in this year’s installment of HBO’s “Hard Knocks.” A spokesman for the network would not confirm New York is out of the running simply because a decision has yet to be made.

“We still have time to decide,” the spokesman said. “And we, and our NFL Films partners, haven’t made any decisions yet.”

A report Thursday indicated Gang Green was on the short-list of teams HBO had in mind to document during training camp, which, really, was no surprise. When the Jets did the show in 2010, there was a weekly ratings bonanza, with an interesting dynamic between Ryan and his much-discussed squad making for must-see television.

From a fan’s point of view, it’s an interesting look into the day-to-day operations of an NFL franchise. In the Jets case, however, it would add to the media circus that already surrounds the club, thanks in part to backup quarterback Tim Tebow, a darling of the press.
