This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, but New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick doesn't want his team featured on Hard Knocks any time soon.

“There are a lot of reasons why I wouldn’t be excited about it,” Belichick joked while addressing reporters during his press conference on Monday via Boston.com.

The Patriots -- who enter on a seven-game winning streak -- will face the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday night.

The Colts are currently being featured in the in-season version of the popular HBO docuseries, which Belichick said gives opponents a scouting advantage.

“We have people in our organization that scout the games in advance of when we play a team,” Belichick said. “So starting two or three weeks before we play them, they start to really track those teams and see how injuries have affected [them] or if they’ve shifted their style of play, or whatever’s happened with the team. So we track most everything those teams—any team that we play—[do], and then depending on the relevance or importance of that information, then at some point it gets relayed down the line.”

“Yeah, so we have somebody that studies each team, whether it’s any relevant comments or information that we think is relevant to the preparation for the team, then that could be shared, sure,” Belichick added.

Hard Knocks typically chronicles an NFL team's preseason camps and initially debuted in 2001.

Belichick is clearly on to something as the Patriots have been the most dominant NFL team during that span, having won their first of six Super Bowls during the NFL regular season that succeeded Hard Knocks' first season on HBO.
