Because everything involving the Jets should be measured in its relation to the buttfumble, today marks the first time since halftime of the Thanksgiving night game that Fireman Ed crammed his head-butt into a modern structural helmet to lead Jets fans in remedial reading drills. Fuck him.
Jets superfan Fireman Ed retired from the superfan game a few years ago, so now he's just Fireman Ed. Actually, he's retired from firefighting, too, so he's just Ed Anzalone. Anyway, the New York Jets are so desperate for that superfan-led J-E-T-S chant that they tried to wine and dine Ed back into being Fireman Ed. A…
Jets superfan Fireman Ed walked away from his chanting duties last season, but is he attending today's game without his garb? Sunglasses Ed seems toned down and tolerable.
