The Jets are losing the presence and support of a superfan who's been a fixture at Jet games for a long time. Fireman Ed (real name Edward Anzalone) is bailing on the team for the foreseeable future because of the team's dismal performance and rancor among the fans.

If I'm being honest, I can understand how he feels. We watch and talk about sports because it's fun to do so. When things are like they are these days though, the fun factor is rather severely diminished :(

Anyone else suffering from "fan fatigue"?

Fireman Ed is an attention *****.
Shame on anyone who indulges in giving him attention.

he is still going to the games, just not wearing his jersey, hat or starting any cheers. didnt really give up on the team, but more on the fans.

I knew Fireman Ed was a bandwagon tool. I knew it all along!!! He is dusting off that Giants jersey as we speak.

Suck it up and be a man Ed!

I mean sure - it's gets rough being a fan of a team that loses so much more than it wins.

But we would have to be really bad for a REALLY long time for me to get to that level. I dislike the losing part but I can honestly say there's never been a game I wasn't excited about watching as it was leading up to game time.

I am. It's draining to see a team with so much potential continue to not close games out. It's become comical it is so bad.

We are still a young franchise. Fans just need to man up, we haven't been horrible for decades like some teams.

Ed needs to replace that fire hat with a Summers Eve douche box.

how long has he been around? The Jets have been far worse for far longer before.

I'm actually going to the Jets Cards game next weekend so I can report back on Fireman Ed and the fatigue of the NYJ fan base.

If any of y'all see a speck of blue in a sea of green while watching a clip of the game on redzone, that'll be me.
