Even at Home, Jets Have Felt Like Visitors – NYTimes.com

Esiason said the stereotype of a Jets fan was a working-class union member, perhaps a police officer or a firefighter from Brooklyn or Queens, who drove an old Chevrolet to the games and played football during his tailgate picnic.

The cliché Giants fan, Esiason said, might be an older white-collar worker from a suburb who drives a shiny BMW and grills steaks to enjoy with wine before kickoff. Jets fans, he said, always fear the worst.

“The prevailing thought among Jets Nation is that the Jets will lose to the Bengals because that’s what the Jets do,” Esiason said. “They bring us to the brink of happiness, and then they tear our hearts out.”
