CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) - The J-E-T-S chant is in the hands of the F-A-N-S.
The New York Jets are holding an online contest to pick eight season ticket holders - one for each home game - to lead the team's familiar rallying cry this year.
Seth Rabinowitz, the Jets' senior vice president of marketing and fan engagement, says Monday that season ticket holders can submit a video of 15 seconds or fewer of themselves leading the chant. Fans will then be able to choose their favorite entries on the team's website later this month, and the eight top vote-getters will lead the crowds at MetLife Stadium.
Ed Anzalone - aka ''Fireman Ed'' - used to lead the cheer, but stepped away from the role in recent seasons.
