ONE fan does not represent all fans!! The media loves to sensationalize stories and try to make something out of nothing. So he quit!! BIG deal!! Move over Ed, I'm sure there's someone who would just love to take your place!! It's all about attention!! JMO!
Fireman Ed's fame goes way beyond 15 minutes. I'm sure all the hardcore football fans know him (& it's not an insult to insinuate you aren't hardcore, I'm not hardcore, I'm more of a Texans fan than a football fan). He's prominent at the games. Every Jets game, they show fireman Ed on TV. He's been to every draft I can remember. Dude's made a spectacle of himself for years. Even without the get-up, I would think New Yorkers would recognize him.

Well, escuse me for NOT watching the Jets!! Could care less about them, except when they play us, and I've never seen him on TV. ALL I'm saying is that you don't have to make a spectacle of yourself to be hardcore! If the man wants to "quit" whatever it is he is doing, then so be it!! Let him go in peace! There will be someone else ready to step right in and take his place.

Just curious! what's the definition of "hardcore" anyway? I know some "hardcore" fans who don't know the D from the O, and have NO flippin clue who some of our players are. Is it a person's overall knowledge of the GAME, including all players and teams, or just someone who attends all the games but doesn't know squat about the game? just wondering!

Like I said, I meant no disrespect. Just saying he's not one of those 15 minutes of fame guys.

We've got some hardcore Texans' fans & I put you in that category. Hardcore Football fans are like emdiggy, rmartin/beerlover/badboy, Dutchrudder & several others. They're all into the draft, capology, watch all teams etc.... where someone like me, I'll watch the Texans & a few other teams.

I'm not hardcore.

Wow, Jets fans harassing the Jets players as they walk off the field. I can't imagine this happening at Reliant.

Stay classy New Jersey.

What I like most about his attire is that it's not perfectly created.

It's simple, it's genuine, and I appreciate that.

Didn't David Carr get beer poured on him once or twice going into the tunnel at Reliant?

Did you see the CBS halftime show during our game today?

A fan in the Jets stands was wearing a jersey that had "Fireman Fred" written on the front, and he was wearing a children's red fireman's hat.

I was laughing so hard! LOL!

I figured there would be a pic on the Internet by now, but there's not.

I wish you guys could see it. I'm too lazy to sap it off my TV and post it right now.
