Jetsfan0099 Icon : (18 September 2014 - 08:36 PM) this game might be the worst game I have ever watched, pretty pathetic.
azjetfan Icon : (18 September 2014 - 09:31 PM) With our complete disaster of a secondary I am a little surprised we have not either signed a guy like Samuel or made a trade
azjetfan Icon : (19 September 2014 - 04:06 PM) Milliner also has a quad now. It really makes sense just to sit him until he is 100%. Lets get healthy instead of risking injury or letting Marshal go 80 for a TD.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 03:53 PM) Looks like Milliner will sit this week. Has not practiced this week.
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 04:20 PM) WOO! Real! 8-2 shooting practice
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 04:21 PM) boo Liverpool
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 04:21 PM) FIRE RAUL!

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 05:14 AM) RIP Rob Bironas
Canuck Jet Icon : (Today, 08:02 AM) Could some enlightened person explain why our secondary is such a mess despite tons of cap space? It's a passing league, better fix that soon or we'll see the Packers game all season.
greenandwhit... Icon : (Today, 10:21 AM) Grew up watching bironas... Good kicker RIP.
greenandwhit... Icon : (Today, 10:30 AM) Well as one aspiring to be an analyst on football i would say it's because we're trying to save up to makes some big moves next year. If you look at next year's potential free agents they're top of the line. If Ryan and Idznik can keep that cap room... Some great things can happen defensively.
greenandwhit... Icon : (Today, 10:30 AM) and offensively as well.

Guest Column: 'Fireman' Ed steps away, but not as fan

On Thanksgiving night, I left the Jets game before halftime. This was the second time in a row I left before there were four zeroes on the clock. We have had much worse teams than this and I never left before. I pride myself in that, because I am not a quitter.

I decided to leave Thursday because the confrontations with other Jets fans have become more common, even though most Jets fans are fantastic.

This is an indication of how society has lost and is continuing to lose respect for one another. The stadium has become divided because of the quarterback controversy as well. The fact that I chose to wear a Mark Sanchez jersey this year and that fans think I am on the payroll — which is an outright lie — have made these confrontations more frequent. Whether it’s in the stands, the bathroom or the parking lot, these confrontations are happening on a consistent basis.

Although I can “hold my own,” I do not want to lose my temper and make a stupid mistake. I have a responsibility to the families and kids that enjoy the game and Fireman Ed.

I have enjoyed my time in chanting the greatest chant in all of sports. I have enjoyed meeting all the wonderful Jets fans around the world and look forward to the day we all can raise the Lombardi Trophy as one and celebrate a world championship down the Canyon of Heroes!

I will always love the Jets because they are in my heart, and I will attend games as usual, just not as Fireman Ed. God bless and, as always, let’s go Jets!

–Fireman Ed Anzalone was a New York City firefighter for two decades and has been a Jets fan since 1975.

yeah I'm sure that is why he stepped down and happened to decide to do that at halftime during a 35-0 beatdown by the Patriots..

He'll be back. But this is the fanbase that booed Pennington while he was laying on the field injured. This is one of the reasons I choose to watch football alone, especially when my team is losing.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

I feel bad for the guy. Every Jets fan is frustrated, but since we can't yell at Woody, Tanny or Rex, this guy is getting shit for making himself the mascot.

Couldn't agree more, I guess we've learned that alcohol and a sh***y team are a bad combo. Have we sunk so far that we're blaming one another for why our team sucks? Instead if blaming each other, we should point fingers straight at the 3 men responsible for puting this half-assed product on the field every Sunday;

Woody: wants to fill the seats, but too cheap to go after good players, instead we're stuck with gimmicks like Tebow and Favre.

Tanny : job is get said talent, but he's a horrible evaluator of ability on the field and off. Think of all the good locker-room leaders we let go make room for has-beens, past their primers, and drama engagers. of the three guys mentioned his ass should be gone first.

Rex: I'll admit his act was fun at first, but its tiring now. Quit saying we have a lot of talent when it's clear we don't. Quit trying to make headlines with your mouth, make headlines by winning games. That's how all these problems go away.

He's just a fan that happens to lead the chant because he's somewhat recognized

Him catching so much criticism over anything is just sad and stupid
