Fireman Ed

Edwin M. Anzalone (born September 19, 1959), better known as Fireman Ed, is an enthusiastic superfan of the New York Jets since 1975, although he was a fan of the Miami Dolphins until the age of 10. One of the most well known National Football League fans, he rose to prominence by appearing on many local radio shows.

Fireman Ed gone but he still roots for JETS -
Fireman Ed gone, but he still roots for J-E-T-S: As team looks for new chant leader, Fireman Ed still...
It's a total insult to all Jet fans especially the fans who bought the PSL's that the Jet management is now going after bottom of the barrel free agents when they are 29 million dollars under the cap. Been a Jet fan since they signed Joe Namath and I am now on the verge of joining in with Fireman Ed as a retired Jet fan after seeing the disgrace that is now transpiring. If Woody and Idzik had to sell PSL'S would they be going after these no-names ?
Ed Reed is just a little late to the party, so make him feel at home, Gang Green. Oh, and please inform him all about that Fireman Ed guy...
Ed Reed wasn't happy to hear that Fireman Ed no longer leads chants during New York Jets games.

If Ed Reed gets Fireman Ed back, his job is done lol
Lotta people may disagree, but Fireman Ed is a huge joke. Met him - not friendly, extremely condescending and pretentious.
Fireman Ed quit this time last year.
Ed Reed called for the return of Fireman Ed.
Agreed! I'm not even a Jets fan, but Fireman Ed is the real deal. An inspiration to football fans everywhere!
Fireman Ed, please come back and crunk Jets Nation up!

For the first time, the Dolphins won't be dealing with NY Jets fan favorite Fireman Ed Sunday at Metlife Stadium.
A sad day for Jets fans: Today is one year since Fireman Ed stepped down.
Rex Ryan and Geno Smith *** so bad I think I saw fireman Ed today with a giants jersey on
I think the NYJs need Fireman Ed back! Lol.
where are you Fireman Ed? The JETS need you more than they need a 7th QB on the roster.
JETS fans need Fireman Ed back in the stadium.
Thats a hard loss to swallow. But as i see it 12-4 or maybe 11-5 will be more than good enough to keep fireman ed . Oh wait. He quit the jets...
I really wanted to avoid going on here tonight to speak on the state of the Giants, but I will briefly. If you have been a Giants fan for a significant amount of time, and didn't hop on in the recent years of the teams success, this isn't that new of a feeling. We have sucked in past before too. Sadly, this appears to be of those years. We're not turning on the team, but accepting this really wasn't meant to be. I am 26 now, so I sat through the Dave Brown and Danny Kannell years. This is nothing. If anything, the Giants have spoiled me with championships in my lifetime. It could be worse really. Hey, I'm over it. I'm still a fan at the the end of the day but some years aren't meant to be and I've accepted that in 2013. Let's hope we end it on a bright note and rack up as many wins as possible. But do not be fair weather guys! Do not turn into that "Super Fan" Fireman Ed, who abandoned ship on his team...front runners are the worst fans of all. Just my two cents... -Andrew
“lol yea, I forgot there was no such thing as a Jets fan.” @ Fireman Ed
at least giants fans are more loyal than fireman Ed.
Fireman Ed had the same look last year just before he quit.
I'm loving every minute of this, just saying, welcome to our world giant fans, sincerely, fireman ed

Incorrect. You really think Fireman Ed is a fan of burning? Maybe Sanchizes burning loins.
Meer I heard you were interested in trying out to be the next Fireman Ed, any truth to this?
That fat, bald Ohio State fat who paints his face is sad. He is the Fireman Ed kind of fan who thinks he's part of the game. He's not.
But where does Fireman Ed fit into all this??
Couldn't get the picture in time, but there's a guy here today with a Fireman Ed-esque Canes helmet on. In the Dolphins' stadium? For shame.
Fireman Ed to the rescue... Save those sausages!
launches 0600 tmrw. Fireman Ed is Q. See u in the gloom.
the cliffs notes. Replace fireman ed w/ buckiguy
Ah Jets. I'd be more interested in them if we had our own Fireman Ed and equally tacky chant.
Don't forget the butt fumble and fireman Ed leaving
Updating our website for the Falcons-Jets preview, and there are just too many hilarious Fireman Ed photos to choose from.
Ok my second observation since i got here l...they ALL(men &women) want to have sex with Drew brees. Its nuts! Yes WORSE then jets fans with Fireman Ed.
If the Falcons get beat by the JETS ima pull a Fireman Ed, ima just stop watch football all together cuz I'll be *** if i like other team😎
I wonder what fireman ed is doing with his life
I guess I am not a very good Jet fan. What happened to Fireman Ed? I just read in a post that he is gone.

After today Lauren Camel will know more chants than Fireman Ed
More annoying in football: Fireman Ed or Bob Costas' halftime rant against gun control?
Who wants the exclusive on my Fireman Ed-like press conference?
Anyone know if Fireman Ed is gonna be at the game next Sunday? I know he said he was retiring for now but...
There's no way Fireman Ed can put out those flames in New York. It's an Inferno right now. Lol
Fireman Ed wasn’t even a Jets fan from the jump (bandwagon cac started off as a Dolphins fan)
Lmfao go ask fireman ed who he'd rather have. Blaine > your qb.
Fireman Ed runs the programming for espn because a. He's cheap B. no one can really tell much difference c. He's rowdy and folks like him
while their at it they ca have Fireman Ed
At this point the Jets should just cut out the middle man and start Fireman Ed at quarterback.
How is fireman Ed not in this article, he may be the biggest reason I hate the Jets.
I resent being called a Fireman Ed but I can't disagree with any of that article. The Jets are bad- 2-14 bad.
The Jets suck, and their fans are even worse. Every one of them a Fireman Ed.
Things a New York Jets Fan says: The New York Jets have arguably the most intense fanbase in the NFL. Former Jets aficionado Fireman Ed led the charge at the team's home games until hanging it up after decades of cheer brigades, citing "unruly" behavior for his exit. The fanbase hasn't lost steam in the wake of Fireman Ed's apparent "retirement." The things Jets fans say have remained static, except for deadbeat clamors for backup quarterback and media sensation Tim Tebow. Fireman Ed was a sideshow. Most Jets fans wouldn't perceive themselves in that brand of limelight. A major contingency of the fanbase is still static in how it expresses itself, regardless. The following examines famous chants and phrases that Jets fan say: Jets fans arguably own the most famous chant in professional football: "J-E-T-S JETS! JETS! JETS!" It's a trademark in the team's legacy and staple in the fan experience at the stadium. The chant, which most outsiders perceive as obnoxious, helps to define Jets nation in positive fas ...

EMS Skills Compared to Football Game Plays Practice before the big game You get called to a wedding rehearsal dinner packed with excited family members and friends of the bride- and groom-to-be. The people are there to celebrate the wedding of two of their favorite people when, suddenly and without warning, the bride’s grandmother collapses with nausea, weakness and respiratory distress. You were right around the corner from the restaurant when the call came in, so you arrived in less than a minute. The crowd’s emotions were already charged up before this medical emergency occurred. Now, you arrive and find the beautiful bride-to-be screaming over “Nanna,” who’s lying on her side, nauseous, vomiting and gasping for air.

FOR ALL YOU FIREFIGHTERS WITH DAUGHTERS Fireman's Rules For Dating His Daughter I am very dedicated to my work. I wear firefighter shirts every day, even when I’m not on duty. The fire department is my second home, and my second family. It often seems as if my life revolves around the fire department, but it means nothing compared to my little girl. I am normally a very friendly person, but if you hurt my little girl you will make me mad. I know my little girl is growing up, even if I don’t like it. She seems to like you, so I’ll tolerate you dating her, but here are a few things for you to think about while you’re with her: First of all, I go into burning buildings to save people that I’ve never even seen before, you can’t imagine how protective I am of my little girl. I once broke a man’s sternum by accident while doing CPR to save his life. If that’s how I help people what do you think I do when I’m *ed off? I investigate arson fires. I know exactly what clues to look for to prove it ...

The next General Manager of the New York Jets will immediately face a highly scrutinized press conference, where he will answer to a group of bitter beat writers and angry,anxious fans. In hopes of him succeeding and seeing our generally miserable fan-base have something to be happy about, I have prepared the following suggested comments for his first press conference - (Walk out wearing a Jets polo shirt, holding a clipboard filled with player evaluation notes, with a stop-watch around your neck and a visor on. Jets fans permanently hate “accountants or bean-counters” after Mike Tannenbaum the past few years. The worst possible thing you could do is come out wearing glasses, holding a calculator and use the word “process” more than once. So make yourself look like a coach or “A REAL FOOTBALL GUY”) “Hello.

A friend of mine had some links to conspiracy-theory 9/11 videos. One of them actually caught my attention, the one about WTC 7 and how it appeared to fall by controlled demolition. Indeed, it does appear this way. At first I thought it was a coincidence, and then I started thinking about designing and constructing such a building. You know that it won't last forever and it will have to come down somehow someday, so what do you -- the building designer -- do about your building's exit plan? The answer might be that you pre-wire it and pre-rig it for its eventual demolition. Sounds insane and impossibly dangerous, I know, but maybe there's another reason as well. Maybe in the case of unforeseen catastrophe, you have been instructed to ensure that your building never falls sideways into another building causing even more loss of life and major damage. It could theoretically create a domino effect with a whole row of buildings for blocks knocking each other over. So you have to make sure that your building o ...
My son finally got a fire call (volunteer fireman), his first structure fire, (I remember my first structure fire too) just hope he is safe and learns a lot! Gonna be a long night, can't sleep knowing he is out! Too many years in EMS.

I'd say the same thing if I was a Jet fan. You know your team *** when you make Fireman Ed quit!

FLORHAM PARK, N.J.  A couple of days before the season opener, Rex Ryan delivered a fiery speech to the New York Jets, expressing his anger with the media's perception of the organization - you know, the whole circus thing. Basically, he told the players: Let's go out and show 'em we're not a bunch of clowns. For one glorious afternoon, the Jets were nothing to laugh at. They were magnificent, blowing out the Buffalo Bills at home and restoring hope after an awful preseason. As it turned out, they had as much staying power as the man who led the stadium that day in a pregame cheer from midfield: Fireman Ed. The Jets peaked in Week 1, and that's a sad commentary. Ultimately, perception became reality as the Jets evolved into a butt-fumbling, quarterback-juggling laughingstock. Mercifully, the season ends Sunday at Buffalo, which, by the way, has won the same number of games as the Jets since opening day - five. How did it get this bad? Here are six reasons for the Jets' demise: 1. Schott in the dark: Wi ...

Hm.What's wrong with this picture.A fifteen year old with cancer was able through the Make a Wish foundation go to East Rutherford to meet the Giants and watch the Sunday night game against the Green Bay Packers. Now the defending Super Bowl champs were in the middle of a two game skid. The young man was asked to address the players before the game and he did. All he said was."Play like champions, play like the champions you are." Justin Tuck was floored by this saying.."Here's a kid who doesn't know us except for what he sees on TV Sundays. He could make any wish and he chose to watch a Giants game and meet us". On the flip side, the one person who goes to every home game, gets shown on the jumbotron leading his famous.J. E. T. S.

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes! It was the best birthday ever as the New England Patriots set the Jets franchise back about 4 years and personally killed Fireman Ed!
One last thing on Fireman Ed, I don't care if he becomes a Dolphin fan, never comes back to Met Life stadium or watches all the rest of the games at Indulge (although I'm note sure why he would do that since The Wine Loft Pier Village has way better football and Happy Hour specials) he is a NON-STORY to any real fan.
NFL: 'Fireman Ed' stepping away from spotlight
Fireman Ed, the most famous of Jets football fans, announced today that he will no longer dress as a fireman for Jets football games. I guess watching Mark Sanchez wreck himself against his own linesman was enough to make even the most die hard fan say screw it.
Fireman Ed showed a skeptical world that New York Jets fan are fully capable of spelling single syllable words.
I heard today that The N Y Jets "unofficial mascot - Fireman Ed " is retiring. Good Fu**ing bye. He is a total FUC**NG tool . I sat behind him a few years ago and he never watched the game . He just watched the Big Board the whole game to see when he was going to be on and then got up. He did get the crowd going but, Watch the game buddy.
BREAKING NEWS: The New York have reportedly found a replacement for Fireman Ed.

So. in flipping past sports center I see Fireman Ed is hanging up his helmet for the Jets. after that loss. they all need to hang it up and revamp for next year. this is a greek tragedy. lol This man he stopped even TALKING about football. He's also taken a razor in a feeble attempt to get that Jets sticker off his bumper. poor baby lol
The New York Jets best player just retired, Fireman Ed.
How bad does your T-E-A-M stink, when it's fan quits on it too ? Even the second coming, I mean the almighty Tim Tebow couldn't save Fireman Ed from giving up on the J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets. That's how bad they S-U-C-K -- if the Jets need a QB, we can send them Charlie Batch, even Tim Tebow wouldn't over throw Heath Miller by 5 feet from 5 yards away.
Ed Anzalone isn't quitting the New York Jets. He's just quitting Fireman Ed. Anzalone, the Jets' unofficial team mascot for decades, explained his decision to hang up his fireman's hat in an open letter.
Wow you know things are bad for the New York Jets when their fan Fireman Ed hands in his walking papers. Not because the team *** (they do) but because the fans have become too hostile. People I give you the 2012-2013 New York Jets.
As a New York Jets fan I'm completely ashamed of the fan base for the reasons why Fireman Ed is stepping down. flat out embarrassing
Fireman Ed quit the team, the jets have reached an all time low. And that bar was already pretty low.
Three things to note: First, a message to Fireman Ed. Nobody cares that your feelings are hurt!! Second, this play looked so good that I think it was practiced!! Third, I got a team in Durham, NH known as the Wildcats who could beat this NFL team. *** I got a team in Plymouth, NH known as the Panthers that could beat this NFL team!!
"Fireman Ed", of New York Jets fame, hangs up his helmet, cites arguements with fellow Jets fans as the reason. YOU SIR, ARE EXACTLY THE HALF-ASSED, BIG MOUTHED BUTTHOLE I ALWAYS THOUGHT YOU WERE. You haven't got a clue on how to be an actual, REAL fan...and not that you really care, but I have lost all respect for you as a person and a fan of the game. I'm glad to learn I'll likely never run into you at MY home field, and be exposed to you, your foul mouth or your cry-baby attitude. Suck on THAT a while Jetfans! LMMFAO!
Just when you think the New York Jets season could not get any worst , Fireman Ed is hanging up the helmet :-)
ESPN and Rex Ryan talking about Fireman Ed "retiring" as if he was a part of the team. What a joke.
Fireman Ed is putting up his fireman hat and put his Mark Sanchez jersey in the trash. That's pretty bad when you lose your number one fan and refuses to go to anymore games
Fireman Ed's application for New England Patriots season tickets must have finally been approved!
New York Jet's "Super Fan" Fireman Ed is retiring and not going to anymore home games. ESPN, I have one question...pretty much the same question when you covered Jack Taylor (mister 138 points in a game both teams LET you score that much)...how the *** is this news? Is it a slow ESPN news day? *** I highly doubt most Jet fans care about Fireman Ed.
DAM Rex Ryan !!! You made Fireman Ed retire !!! Your gonna end up being the worst coach in Jets history !!! Worse than Rich Kotite !!! DAM !!!
New York Jets superfan "Fireman Ed" Anzalone is hanging up his fireman's hat.
Does this mean Fireman Ed makes the national talk show and/or talking head rounds now?
Fireman Ed, Good riddance you drama queen. How does a guy on government $ afford that good of season tickets? You, Sanchez, and Rex Ryan should roll off into the sunset together.
*** when Fireman Ed decides to bail out on the jets, you know it's bad. Follow to the promise land.
Ed Anzalone, blaming the boorish behaviour of fellow Jets fans, announced that he was retiring his Fireman Ed cheerleader routine.
so Fireman Ed "resigned"? Exactly from what may I ask? Being an *** at a football game? I didn't realize that you got paid a salary for yelling just about the dumbest chant in sports ."J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets".means nothing, makes no sense, 70,000 *** follow him and the dumb chant and now no one likes him anymore and boos him because the team stinks? For real? are you kidding me? As much as I do not like him and is act and he is no more important as a fan as the other 70,000 people who attend their games, he surely isn't the blame for them losing nor should be booed because he wears a Sanchez jersey (I have booed both of them for years now myself win or lose!) and what happened to the Bruce Harper jersey anyway? what is he resigning from.not wearing his green football helmet and sit on someone's shoulders at the game and chant anymore? Give me a break. First of all if I sat behind him and he kept getting on someone's shoulders in front of m and I couldnt see I would tell him to sit down and shut up an ...
I believe Fireman Ed the Superfan for the New York Jets has found out how divided our nation has become. Only it was in Metlife Stadium which the Jets call their home. He will not do the Jets chant anymore because 50% for one quarterback and the other 50% for the other.
What was the best or most funny part of this past week in NY sports? Giants: Dismantle the Packers Notre Dame: Finally back challenging for the National Championship Jets: Mark Sanchez runs his face directly into his own lineman's *** while fumbling Jets: Fireman Ed quits...Sorry, Jets Jets: Images of Rex Ryan eating a turkey leg resurface Mets: They sign Wanel Mesa (9+ ERA in the Independent League last year), Jamie Hoffmann (.153 Major league batting average), Scott Rice (31+ years old and career minor leaguer), and Carlos Torres (5.26 ERA last year)...and did not protect Aderlin Rodriguez (their best non-pitching prospect) from the rule 5 draft!
Out of respect for Fireman Ed retiring from being the Jets superfan, I will be spelling things out and repeating them three times. cc: Steve Boese
Pathetic Fans drive Fireman Ed away. "I decided to leave Thursday because the confrontations with other Jets fans have become more common, even though most Jets fans are fantastic. This is an indication of how society has lost and is continuing to lose respect for one another. The stadium has become divided because of the quarterback controversy as well. The fact that I chose to wear a Mark Sanchez jersey this year and that fans think I am on the payroll — which is an outright lie — have made these confrontations more frequent. Whether it’s in the stands, the bathroom or the parking lot, these confrontations are happening on a consistent basis. Although I can “hold my own,” I do not want to lose my temper and make a stupid mistake. I have a responsibility to the families and kids that enjoy the game and Fireman Ed. Anzalone added that he will always love the Jets and continue to attend games, just not as “Fireman Ed."
Today, Fireman Ed "retired" from being the superfan that stirs up the Meadowlands, truly symbolizing the death of the New York Jets for at least this decade.
Fireman Ed has hung up his helmet at Met Life Stadium. He's a fan, right? Don't fans stick with their teams through thick and thin? If you love Gang Green so much, you stay with the team. It's just that simple. On a personal level, I have been a Yankees fan and a Detroit Pistons fan for over 30 years. When the Yankees were horrific in the 80s I still followed them. When the Bad Boys from Detroit were disbanded, I was still loyal. If the Jets turn it around next year who do you think will hop right back on the bandwagon? Fireman Ed, that's who. Fan is short for fanatic, and Ed from what I can tell by your recent retirement from rooting for the team that you love so much, you are your biggest fan. That's not being a fan, that's just living in a Fantasy world, where if your team doesn't win, then you go on to the next flavor of the month. Welcome to reality Ed, something I hope you become a fan of real soon. Class Dismissed!

Fireman Ed, thanks for showing Rex Ryan he ain't worth an empty can of bullybeef
Fireman Ed has quit on the Jets.apparently one of the reasons is because he was wearing a Sanchez jersey and classless Eagles fans disguised at Jets fans heckled him. Clueless Eagles fans also infiltrated the crowd at Metlife Stadium and held up a sign calling for the firing of head coach Rex Ryan. This is pure madness since Rex Ryan took the Jets to two straight AFC Championship games. Weed out these invaders and restore order. J-E-T-S.wait who's going to lead the chant now?
I think it's funny that Fireman Ed 'All of a Sudden' realized how dangerous Metlife Stadium is. ~2007 Gate D Jets rituals
Mike Lupica on Fireman Ed: "If Spike (Lee) stops sitting in the first row, will there be a retiring ceremony??"
Fireman Ed quit? I don't blame him, Jet fans are tuff, and I gave beause they do not even try, even the front office, acting like *** like "don't blame us" yeah well, I do, the organization has done NOTHING to help the Jets. I am done.
You know my Jets are at an all time low when "Fireman Ed" says he's done for the season!!!
I don't give a crap about Fireman Ed, but driving in the car this morning on ESPN Radio Colin Cowherd referred to him as a meatball. Would he feel as free to call Mark Sanchez a burrito or RGIII a chitlin? In this time in our society with the phony outrage over words and names the only group that still is taking it on the chin is Italian-Americans. I live with it every day in this city of *** bags. Time for us to rise up and take offense.
Pats dominating win Thursday made Fireman Ed retire. This could be an all time low for JETS fans.
Its sad day for the New York Jets : Fireman Ed has retired
Michael Irvin is killing himself talking about Fireman Ed on and in turn killing me.
Fireman Ed, leader of the J-E-T-S jets chants announced that he is retiring after fighting with fellow Jets fans over Mark Sanchez. He was seen leaving at halftime of the Pats games this week. Looks like another win for the Pats. This time sinking a 30yr. tradition.
Jeez, you run head-first into one lineman's butt and even Fireman Ed jumps ship... Don't worry, Mark Sanchez, I'm here for you. And I have toilet paper, er, tissues if you need them. Some day we will all laugh at this... someday.
How terrible that the New York Jets' most famous fan "Fireman Ed" is getting harrased for wearing a Sanchez jerzey to the game . HE'S A FAN YOU *** ! Don't heckle your own! Fans that take a QB contriversy that serious as to heckle someone supporting your team, your face of the franchise as fans don't deserve to win. Surprized it wasn't Buffalo.
"has there ever been anyone in history that thought so highly of themselves and mattered so little to anything outside the walls of his home as Fireman Ed" - Colin Cowherd
"Fireman Ed" will still go to Jets games, but he'll just be Ed Anzalone from now on.
Newsflash: Fireman Ed will no longer wear his helmet and lead JETS chants at games...and you probably thought it couldn't get any worse for Rex Ryan's crew
Lon E Hall, Fireman Ed retired. Said he was having too many confrontations with fellow fans over his wearing a Mark Sanchez jersey.
The New York Jets are so bad that Fireman Ed is retiring.
Fireman Ed has retired from the New York Jets. All the hope for the Jets is lost. I guess all the fans are going to forget how to spell J-E-T-S :/.
It's a shame that Fireman Ed is done, he was a great influence on the game. Yes he was loud, a bit off his rocker, but the guy gave the game exactly what it needed, positive vibes. I was so pumped to be in the seats for his J-E-T-S cheer at midfield, but the fans have gotten so poisonous to him and others that support Mark Sanchez, that he has stepped down as a superfan. It's a sad day, best of luck, Ed.
RIP Fireman Ed. NY Jet fan hangs up his fire hat. sad day in the Metlife Stadium. LMFAO
Just heard tba Fireman Ed of the New York Jets quit! OMG... I wish we could play the Jets every week!
NESN shared the following link and had this to say about it: Fireman Ed is quitting as "Fireman Ed." Since 1975, Ed Anzalone has attended New York Jets games at the Meadowlands, leading chants and making countless appearances on Jumbotrons and television screens. But, it looks like the worl...

You know what's sick? I love how dysfunctional the Jets are right now. I'm Captain Chaos, so it's only fitting that the team I root for is falling apart at the seams. Maybe I can be the new mascot now that Fireman Ed quit. Lol

Fireman Ed resigns from a "job" with the Jets that didn't exist...hallelujah. Bring back the original guys who led the cheer, the Klecko guys from Shea's upper deck.
I think since Fireman Ed cxled his account should reopen a parody account for the to express their feelings.
Fireman Ed has been the New York Jets' de facto mascot for decades. But was a humiliating loss to the New England Patriots on Thanksgiving night the final straw in Ed's Gang Green fandom?

Broadway Joe ain't coming outta that tunnel, Fireman Ed. Your team has outright sucked or under-acheived for 40+ years. You are the league's most recognizable fan; but your team is a disaster. Go home.
