My son had that familiar look in his eye that all of us have had during the typical Jet collapses and embarrassments while growing up as a fan of this cursed franchise .
I couldn't help but ask myself, "Why have I pushed this misery onto him and his sister? :(
Some people were always on the fence with this guy, never really loved him to begin with.
Then when he decided to quit on us for a season back around 2005 we had it with him.
Now, when we're in the worst shape we've been in the last 15 seasons, he decides to pull a selfish hissy fit and quit very publicly. Joining the pile on at a time when he should be standing up for us.
Good riddance, Littleman Ed.
As a non-season ticket holders who goes to one or two games a year, I enjoy and look forward to him leading the chants when I'm there.
Thanks Fireman Ed - you'll be missed.
I said this last night, he should have just let the last two games play out, do a couple of chants, and then fade. All he's done is made himself the target of more vitriol unnecessarily. He didn't need to go out like this. Now that he has, he gets what he deserves.
I log onto my computer this morning and this is the first thing that I see. Looks like it's gone national now (lol)
The giants have a huge win last night and all anyone can talk about on the news is Fireman Ed. Someone in that Jets PR department should run the next Presidential Election Candidate. They are a master of PR (lol)
Now is intent is bad, he's trying to do the Jets and their fans harm at a time when we're hurting and at an all-time low the likes of which we haven't seen since 1996.
Though his behavior confirms what many of us have suspected for years, it doesn't mean it's a good thing. In a very strange way, this may get Rex Ryan fired. So I may become the biggest Quitterman Ed fan there ever was.

boomer and carton put alot into perspective the jets have more problems than fireman ed resigning. aint that the truth. this organization is in shambles.
Geeeezzzz... has any other team in any pro sport ever had their #1 fan resign because of poor treatment by other fans? A sad testament to the character of Jets Fans in attendance at the games.
Not for nothing but you would think the Jets would have some sort of security near Fireman Ed. And if they knew about him being harassed and did nothing about it then I think we are a worse organization than previously imagined.
Calling us a circus is an embarrassment to real circuses.
