The whole Jets chant thing took on a life of its own and came across to these eyes at least as being very self serving. Much more about fireman Ed than it ever was about the New York Jets. Good luck Ed with whatever you choose to do with your life now but from here on in, if indeed you are a man of your word then you will become just like the rest of us, a plain old Jets fan who suffers his/her fandom in anonymity.
Please do not have a comeback because that would make this little better than one of the melodramatic "I'm Leaving" threads we get on here from time to time.
Exit stage left and good luck to you.
So true. He can't ever come back now. He will look like a publicity hound or front runner.
