The 6 Most Annoying New York Jets





It's that semi-regular time of year around here known as AFC Championship Week, and to kick it off, let's re-acquaint ourselves with the most obnoxious faces of the Steelers' opponent:

1. RYAN, Rex




REASONS WHY THE JETS PUT UP WITH HIM: 22-13 regular season record, 4-1 in postseason, 2 AFC Championship appearances in two seasons with the Jets.

2. HOLMES, Santonio




CLAIMS TO FAME: Sold drugs as a teenager; has a hat trick of arrests to his credit; suspended four games by the NFL in 2010 for violating their substance abuse policy; once told someone to kill themselves on Twitter; got involved in an altercation on a flight; tweeted that he was going to wake and bake; had naked pictures surface on the net (sorry, you can Google that yourself).

REASONS WHY THE JETS PUT UP WITH HIM: Super Bowl MVP pedigree; 746 yards receiving, 6 TDs in 12 games in 2010; actually a dangerous player if and when his head is in the game and he's not suspended.

3. ED, Fireman




CLAIMS TO FAME: Loud, obnoxious, camera-hogging fan who gets nearly as much face time as Mark Sanchez during the average Jets game; actually has a Wikipedia page; charged with simple assault when a Giants fan interrupted his sacred Jets chant in 2010.

REASONS WHY THE JETS PUT UP WITH HIM: None I can easily identify.

4. CROMARTIE, Antonio




CLAIMS TO FAME: Fathered nine children with eight women living in six states, and has been named in at least five paternity suits in the past two years; tried to remember all the kids' names on an episode of HBO's Hard Knocks; called Tom Brady an a-hole

REASONS WHY THE JETS PUT UP WITH HIM: Former All-Pro and Pro Bowler with San Diego in 2007; 1st round pick in 2006.

5. SCOTT, Bart




CLAIMS TO FAME:  Said of Wes Welker, "I'll tell you what. Be very careful what you say about our coach. His (Welker's) days in a uniform will be numbered. Put it like that."; gave ridiculous interview to Sal Paolantonio after beating the Patriots on Sunday; allegedly threatened to kill Hines Ward after a game.

REASONS WHY THE JETS PUT UP WITH HIM: 2006 All-Pro and Pro Bowler; most visible player link to Rex Ryan's Baltimore days.

6. EDWARDS, Braylon



CLAIMS TO FAME: Got into a beef with one of Lebron's boys in 2009, just two days before getting traded to the Jets; blew twice the legal limit when pulled over in 2010, resulting in DWI;

REASONS WHY THE JETS PUT UP WITH HIM: 3rd overall pick in 2005 would lead one to believe he has some talent; 2007 Pro Bowl selection, with 16 TDs; 904 yards, 7 TDs in 2010; scored Jets' second touchdown on Sunday;

These guys are kind of like the Bengals except they actually have won in the playoffs in the last two decades.

Seeing Cromartie trying to remember the names of his children is just plain sad. My buddy suggested that Trojan should make him their spokesman as a favor to him.

Mark Sanchez has a good playoff record so far. And it's being pointed to as him being a game manager relying on a great running game and stout defense... sound familiar?

It's a little disgusting that anyone gives a shyt who fireman Ed is. What a useless attention whore!

The best part of that Cromartie video isn't just the sheer number of kids he has... it's the number of 3 yr olds that he has!!! 2006-2007 offseason must have been a busy one for mr. cromartie.

"Mark Sanchez has a good playoff record so far. And it's being pointed to as him being a game manager relying on a great running game and stout defense... sound familiar?"

Except with Sanchez, it's actually true. Including playoffs, he's thrown 1 INT for every TD he's thrown so far. Not including playoffs, he's got 4 more INTs than TDs. He's got a 54.4 completion percentage. A career 70.2 passer rating.

Maybe he'll develop into a good QB, but right now he's more Tommy Maddox or Mike Tomczak than Ben Roethlisberger. His team is winning games in spite of him, not because of him, and I doubt a good running game with no passing game will be enough against the Steelers unless the Jets defense really shuts us down.
