If a Thanksgiving blowout loss at home and basically getting eliminated from the playoffs wasn't enough, this news is certainly absolute rock bottom for the New York Jets. Ed Anzalone, famously known as "Fireman Ed" has for years lead the famous "J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS!" chants at all home games in the Meadowlands for the Jets. However, he has lead his last chant. He left at halftime during the Jets thanksgiving loss to New England and apparently will not be returning to his post ever again. He will still attend the games, but not in his famous fireman hat leading the chants from his old section. But it gets a little worse, he didn't even leave because the team sucks. He left because fans have been getting on him for wearing a Mark Sanchez jersey. Jets fans can't even get behind a team icon anymore in the face of this quarterback controversial. Though many of you know I am a Buffalo Bills fan, I still loved Fireman Ed. I usually attend the Bill...

Worst Play in NFL History?

It might very well have been the worst play in NFL history.  It certainly was the most embarrassing.  Yes, I’m talking about the “Bumble,” the “Poop n’ Score,” the play that singlehandedly swung momentum in the Pats’ favor during their 49-19 drubbing of the Jets on Thanksgiving Eve.  Mark Sanchez dropped back on what appeared to be a handoff, but when he turned to...
