MEET JETS FAN CHRIS HOLMES!
Author: NY JETS UK CONTRIBUTOR
Happy New Year Jets fans!
Unfortunately it didn’t turn out to be a particularly happy one for the team last Sunday, as their defeat at the hands of the Seahawks took them out of playoff contention.
The Jets wrap up their season this Sunday in Miami with the chance to end the playoff hopes of their division rival the Dolphins - make sure to tune in on NFL GamePass from 6pm to catch the last action for a while…
For those of you based in Scotland, the Gang Green UK guys are putting on a watch party in Edinburgh - so make sure to pop along if you are able to!
On that note, we will continue to provide an insight into the fans up and down the country who represent the Jets here on the UK website, with a few questions answered this week by Norfolk-based Jets fan Chris Holmes!
- Name: Chris Holmes
- Twitter Handle: @chrisholmes19
- Location in UK: Norfolk
- Jets fan since: 2006
- First Jets memory: The one that sticks in the brain is the Divisional Round win against the Patriots in the 2010 playoffs. Specifically the Shonn Greene TD run to seal the game! Of course my namesake Santonio was also part of that team - and I made sure to get his jersey so that it will always be relevant to me!
- Favourite Jets memory: Easy! Wembley Stadium, October 2015. My stepdad and I made sure to get premium tickets for the Jets' first visit to England - it really was an incredible day. Of course the win made the whole thing perfect, Chris Ivory was on a mission that day.
- Ever visited MetLife: Unfortunately not, is anyone offering?!
- Favourite current Jet: Sauce Gardner. We've got an all pro CB already he's only going to get better and anchor the young defence for years to come. It seems that he really is humble and not arrogant despite knowing the receivers can't get any separation!
- Favourite all time Jet: Leon Washington. In the days where returns were possible, he was a threat every time that ball was kicked in his direction.
Thanks to Chris for answering our questions and for his continued loyal support of the Jets!
