Tom Coughlin: HBO would fire the Giants from Hard Knocks 'in a minute'


The New York Giants are one of the more intriguing stories to watch in the NFL for the 2014 season. With two Super Bowl championships under their belts, head coach Tom Coughlin, quarterback Eli Manning and the rest of the team will set out to bounce back from a 7-9 season that obviously had some more downs than ups.

Because they’re such a good story to watch play out, and with Coughlin’s old-school, no nonsense demeanor, you would figure that the team would be the perfect subject for this season’s acclaimed HBO series ‘Hard Knocks.’

Well, that doesn’t seem to be the case for Coughlin as he tends to disagree, even going to far as to say that HBO would quickly decide that the wrong decision was made to have the Giants profiled.

“You wouldn’t get what you normally associate with that show,” Coughlin told the New York Post. “I’d go the other way and they’d fire us in a minute. Canceled. Nobody would watch it.”

Coaches generally allow HBO access to every aspect of their lives 24/7 throughout the duration of the series, and Coughlin wouldn’t let that go over, anyone who has watched him his entire career knows that, so he might be right.
