J-E-T-S (Just End The Season)
"J-E-T-S" is a popular chant of football fans of the New York Jets. When the team is losing, some insist that this stands for "Just End The Season." The backronym "Just End The Season" has been cited in print since at least October 1995.

Other backronyms of “J-E-T-S” include "Just End The Suffering" and "Just Exit The Stadium."

21 December 1998, New York (NY) Times, pg. D2:
And they did it in Parcells's second season with memories remaining among the players of the 1996 team that went 1-15, a season when fans who spelled out J-E-T-S claimed it stood for "Just End the Season."
