Probably the main concern that teams have when they're considering being the focus of HBO's "Hard Knocks" is that some of the information that they display on the show could be used against them in the regular season.
That concern might become a reality for the Jets.
Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron admitted today that in the little that he watched this season of "Hard Knocks", which featured the Jets, he picked up tactical information about the Ravens' season-opening opponent.
"Yeah, there was probably a lot revealed in that strategically, the way I viewed it," Cameron said. "At least what we were jotting down. There was a lot of stuff in there strategically."
Perhaps realizing the headlines he would set off if he went much further, Cameron shied away from a follow-up question about whether the Ravens would be able to use the information they learned from the show against the Jets on Monday night.
"I'm not going to say that yet," Cameron said. "You'd have had me if I'd have said 'yes' right there. That was pretty good. He had me, didn't he, because I could read that one already? So, you can't say it because I didn't say it."
Regardless of what the Ravens are willing to say publicly, they almost certainly picked up some valuable information that they can use in their favor on Monday.
Be it play-calling habits, learning something about players' strengths and weaknesses, or how the Jets plan on using their personnel, there was plenty in those five hours of television that the Ravens (and the 31 other NFL teams) will be able to dissect and try to use to their advantage.
