Not even one game has been played since Fireman Ed hung up his hat as the New York Jets unofficial mascot and The New York Post is presuming that fans are longing to find someone else to lead the home crowd with his famous "J-E-T-S!" cheer. In this Sunday's edition, the newspaper has nominated four other potential Jetsies to fire up the crowd at  games in MetLife Stadium. Fireman Ed, who stomped out of the stadium before halftime of the Jets pitiful 49-19 loss to the New England Patriots on Thanksgiving Day, announced last Sunday that he will no longer attend games as the beloved  — and apparently contentious — character he's been for years — or what seemed like decades. Jets fans would probably prefer the 4-7 Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez put on some makeup and a hat to lead the cheers from the stands but The Post has narrowed it down to these uberfans as the top contenders and described them as thus: "A motley crew of superfans who wear their devotion to Gang Green painted on their sleeves, bellies and faces." For those of you who thought that Tim Tebow already landed the job in the second half of the Thanksgiving Day massacre — shame. Cast your vote for one of these men before the few remaining fans forget how to spell. Jetman: Described as one of the team's biggest fans who lives in the heart of enemy territory — New Hampshire.  Famous for his plastic hat shaped like a jet and catchphrase, "Jetman bleeds green ... and that color never runs."  Sort of like the Jets offense. Jetbo: New Jersey guy known for his camouflage, green face paint and occasional rubber Incredible Hulk hands.  Catchphrase: "The few, the proud, the green!" The U.S. Marines might have a lawsuit. Captain Jet: Staten Island native famous for his cape and selection of 16 different custom-made helmets — one which was given to team owner Woody Johnson. His well thought out catchphrase, "Green machine!" Goes great with Burt Reynolds at QB. James Gandolfini: Best known for making the whole world believe that half of Jersey is Italian with mob connections — we all know they hang out at the Jersey Shore — and doing a Rutgers football commercial.  The actor would probably rather be swimming with Big ***** than be lumped in with these mooks.  His  catchphrase will make fans head for the snack bar: G-A-B-A-G-O-O-L!" Check 'em out at MetLife Stadium for yourself.  Tickets are going for as little as $18 in the secondary market.

  • They may want to think about replacing their idiot head coach and their horrible starting QB...really, who the hell cares if fireman ed has stepped down...did he ever really step up in the first place. What a pile of crap this is.
  • He doesnt have to be..the Jets won all by themselves.. Fireman Ed should have gave retired 3 years ago....ha
  • I think you must have meant that the jets can LOSE all by themselves....Right?
  • I agree. TannenBUM has to go. He can take Rex with him. This team needs discipline big time. That guy is just like the rest of us A FAN. He doesn't help us win in any way . Good riddance ya bum.
