Gotta See It: 'Derek Eater' To 'Derek Leaner'; Jets Fan Dons 'Buttfumble' Jersey

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Derek Jeter packing on the pounds? Not so fat -- er, fast.

A new meme was established last week after an unflattering photo of the Yankees captain made its way to the back page of the New York Post, along with the headline "Derek Eater."

MLB Network's Harold Reynolds countered with a pic of his own on Monday, showing a lean Jeter as he recovers from October ankle surgery.

On to Jets land, where a fan at MetLife Stadium tweeted a photo Sunday of a fellow spectator wearing his personalized "BUTTFUMBLE" jersey, complete with Mark Sanchez's No. 6.

Sanchez, of course, fumbled on Thanksgiving night against New England when he ran straight into the rear end of offensive lineman Brandon Moore. We're guessing this guy was chanting for Greg McElroy.

And how could we forget those Jets fans wearing paper bags -- or "Fireman Fred," apparently making his push to replace the recently retired "Fireman Ed."

Ease up, Jets fans -- you won!
