More Bad News for J-E-T-S

Things have gone from bad to worse for the New York Jets. Get blown out by your rival on National TV on Thanksgiving, have the "Sanchez Butt Fumble" be the laughing stock of the weekend and featured on every major media outlet, now the cherry on top:  Fireman Ed quits! The man famous for leading the crowd in the team's battle cry "J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS" posted a column in the NY Metro saying he would no longer be attending games as "Fireman Ed." Citing increasing confrontations at games, mostly due to the Mark Sanchez jersey he has worn to all home games this season; the Fireman has deemed it no longer worth all the trouble it has become.

This is a huge blow to the fan base, much more so than the team. Fireman Ed is a legend and gets the crowd into the game -- something the team has struggled to do all season.  From the Jets perspective however this may be the perfect timing to distract from the real problem:  the product on the field.

Jets coach Rex Ryan for one is sad to see the NY icon leave: "I was disappointed. I love that guy's passion. I really admire him. If we do our job on field, that chant will continue"

Whether or not the chant continues remains to be seen. One thing is for sure -- this is a rough week - make that season - to be a Jets fan.
