    The Jets are going Hollywood.

    The Jets will be the subject of the popular HBO series "Hard Knocks," which chronicles the behind-the-scenes lives of players on an NFL team as they go through training camp, the Daily News confirmed Wednesday.

    The team released a statement Wednesday trumpeting a "major media announcement" at noon Thursday at their training facility in Florham Park, featuring owner Woody Johnson, GM Mike Tannenbaum and coach Rex Ryan.

    The series is sure to produce great theater for HBO viewers, considering the characters on the Jets, including Ryan, probably the most colorful coach in the NFL and marquee quarterback Mark Sanchez, lockdown cornerback Darrelle Revis and future Hall of Fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson.

    It's likely the Jets will return to Cortland in upstate New York for camp, which begins in late July.

    As was first reported in the Daily News in January, the Jets were the lead candidate for the show. HBO sports boss Ross Greenburg and Tannenbaum had discussed the possibility throughout the 2009 season.

    HBO would not comment on Tuesday, but at the recent Manny Pacquiao-Joshua Clottey fight at Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Greenburg - a longtime Jets fan - was joined at ringside by Jets owner Woody Johnson and Tannenbaum.

    This represents a dramatic change in philosophy for the Jets, who now fancy themselves as a media-friendly organization. Two years ago, under Eric Mangini, they were a clandestine franchise that never would have allowed cameras into their inner sanctum.

    They are cursed for the season now.

    The Bengals were on last year and made the playoffs but of course lost Chris Henry that being said I think the Jets won't match this past season's success anyways.

    With all due respect hold your horses. . . the season hasn't even begun and you are already saying this. Can we wait for the season to begin before you start talking about a team that made to the AFC Championship last year as if they are not contenders. You never know we may surprise you.

    Its an opinion everyone has one. This is mine

    I think Cromartie is overrated he makes more kids than interceptions.

    I also think LaDainian is washed up and they should've kept Thomas Jones

    And Sanchez is going to be in his second season they won't overlook him this time.

    HA! Oh the irony. A guy who has already talked like the Jets already have the 2010 Lombardi trophy sitting in their case telling someone else to hold their horses.

    Just because I am proud of my team it doesn't mean that I can not occasionally have my spurts of objectivity.
