Would like to hear your thoughts on possibly bringing back Fireman Ed.
At least we won't have to guarantee his salary for the whole season - LOL
Why is it so hard for someone else to get on their buddy's shoulders and do the JETS chant?!
Every JETS bar I have ever been to has a guy that leads it... And if he's not there one week? ANOTHER person does it! What a concept!
Ed's a Dollfish fan anyways. Seriously... Policeman 32 Green could easily take over and become the new icon, I'm sure.
Policeman Green sounds better than Fireman Ed anyways. Also, Mr Green, you should wear a giant Pot Leaf Necklace when you take over your new spot.
the game was fine without him, the fans knew to get loud on 3rd downs. we dodnt need ed for that.
Last year at the Jets-Colts game I was a few rows back from him. He was great. It wasn't about him. He just gets the crowd going at the right times and helps the D. Jets won that game.
So, apparently, anyone can get on someone's shoulders and do it, but you need a guy with an IQ higher than the number of fingers he has to know NOT to do it when the offense is trying to run a play.
The Jets chant will eventually die without him.
The crowd was pretty loud yesterday, but the chant sounded weak and pathetic everytime they attempted it.
I personally like Ed's routine, and I wish he would come back. But I wonder why the chant can't be led by the stadium graphics. I think that's the way the Broncos do it for their "in-com-plete" chant when a visiting QB fails to connect with a receiver. Why can't the Jets chant work the same way?
The answer is YES.
Come back Fireman Ed!
I'd definitely be happy to see Fireman Ed come back.
But I agree. The Jets can keep it alive -- if they stop over thinking it. Why do we need a different letter on each side of the stadium, or the drumline to instigate it? We don't even need Fireman Ed LIVE, even footage of him getting on his buddy's shoulders and quieting the crowd would work. Just throw it up on the big screens. If he's not cool with that, could have a couple Jets players just act out the motions on screen. It doesn't have to be complicated.
This should end well.
Ed (the person) is a class act and a really nice guy. But we can do without the "Fireman Ed".
No "Ed", no problem. The crowd was great yesterday b.c we had a reason to cheer. The fans feed off the players and vice versa.
That'll be no Scott!!!!! Say it with the Dr Evil Accent.
Yes, hell yes and yes please. Drumline is doing a good job of getting the chant going, but not enough and not right before each kickoff, which Ed was great for.
