    The chant doesn't *need* Ed to continue - but he was exceptionally good at getting people riled up and energized to belt out the chant. His seat location (proximity to sideline cameras) in Giants Stadium, his intensity and his brothers shoulders -- made him stand out and a natural to lead a stadium wide J-E-T-S chant. People forget, the chant was a section thing. Dueling ends of the upper deck would chant it back and forth. Ed didn't invent the J-E-T-S chant, but he was the first (and only) to lead the entire stadium. A few of those in the late 90s - were absolutely spine tingling.

    Ed gets credit for taking the chant where it is today in American sports lore. His participation in game day will not be forgotten and will most certainly be missed.

    Cheers to Ed Anzelone.
    Such a great sentiment that I want to close the thread here.

    I am not going to go as overboard as above, but Fireman Ed lost his luster when the new stadium was built. New fan base at games and different location in new stadium did him no favors. You can thank Woody for that.
    And if he is not employed by team, how is it that he can climb up on that wall/railing during the game? Other fans allowed to do that ? Bottom line is that when the team is playing as poorly as they currently are, no one cares about Fireman Ed as there is nothing to cheer about!!!!!!!!

    Jets Fans Philly Moment - Fireman Ed!

    In what world do home fans harrass the team's yell leader (for wearing an Sanchize jersey) into quitting?

    Sounds like something Philly Eagles fans would do.

    As usual Barstool is hysterical and awesome. Couldn't have said it any better myself.

    It's about you being called out by Bonhomme.

    In related news, here's a rather harsh poll from ESPN.com:
    http://espn.go.com/blog/playbook/fan...14692/hangover

    Who should replace Fireman Ed as the Jets' new unofficial mascot?

    • Tim Tebow
    • A dumpster fire
    • Any fan with a paper bag on his head
    • Unemployed Man Rex

    No need there, fans don't need a mascot to be into it, just a QB playing QB, and not RB.

    I think these sort of responses basically prove his point. I've never been a big fan of the guy, but come on Jet fans - dial it down a notch.

    Speak for yourself, If the Jets were winning most would give two chits about cheering when it doesn't matter. Enough of this gay topic.
