After getting blown out vs Patriots in the first half of Thursday's Jets - Patriots showdown, Super Fan Fireman Ed left the game. He now says he's giving up his role as chief cheerleader.
NEW YORK (AP) -- Fireman Ed is hanging up his helmet.
New York Jets
fan Ed Anzalone writes in a guest column for Metro New York newspaper Sunday that he will no longer lead the ''J-E-T-S!'' chants at home games or wear his firefighter's hat because ''confrontations'' between him and other fans ''have become more common.''
The former New York City firefighter, who left the Jets' 49-19 loss to New England at halftime Thursday night, says that MetLife Stadium has become divided over support for quarterbacks
. Anzalone, who used to wear Bruce Harper's No. 42 jersey, has been wearing Sanchez's No. 6 this season.
Anzalone says his choice to support Sanchez has led to more frequent incidents, and doesn't want ''to lose my temper and make a stupid mistake.''
