Dolphins superfan calls Fireman Ed a 'wuss' and 'disgrace'

Dolphins superfan Big Papa Pump is taking aim at Fireman Ed, who he deems as “a wuss.”
BPP, a Dolphins season ticket holder for 17 years, ripped Ed Anzalone in a radio interview Tuesday in South Florida, saying that Anzalone is “a disgrace” for abandoning the Jets. Fireman Ed wrote in the Metro over the weekend that he is resigning from his role as a superfan – no more Jets helmet and leading the J-E-T-S chant – because of fans’ ire toward him.
His Miami counterpart has no sympathy.
"If you're stepping down because of what you see, getting your butt whupped week-in and week-out and you haven't been to the Super Bowl since Super Bowl III, that is a wuss,” BPP said on “Hochma and Zaslow” on Sports Talk: The Ticket (via ESPN.com). “That is a wuss.”
Big Papa Pump, whose real name is Thomas Phillips, added: "You don't back out of your team like that. That's something you don't do. You don't step down from being a superfan. You don't do that. Fireman Ed, you're a disgrace, man. ... This team is looking up to him and this is what he's telling them? You quit? You just give up? If you're winning and you quit, it's another thing. But you're losing and you quit, that's even worse."
BPP says Anzalone can never return to his Fireman Ed moniker now.
“You have to come back as somebody else," he said. "Maybe he can be Nurse Ed. He can't come back as Fireman Ed, there's no way. You can't welcome him back. How can you trust him?"
Many Jets fans never have. In fact, Anzalone, a Queens native, former New York City fireman and New Jersey resident, was actually a Dolphins fan growing up. Maybe BPP and Anzalone can join together as a Miami superfan duo.
