FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Disgruntled Jets fans haven't given up trying to get rid of general manager John Idzik.

For the second time this season, a plane flew over practice, with Wednesday's banner reading: "Penalty Flag Day 12/21."

The creators of the website, whose main mission is to see the Jets' general manager fired, announced recently that they plan to distribute 10,000 "penalty flags" to fans on Sunday at MetLife Stadium for the final home game of the season against the rival New England Patriots.

The yellow and green towels take aim at not only Idzik, the team's general manager, but also team president Neil Glat and longtime Jets executive Terry Bradway.

"Attention Woody," the towels read, " . . . Clean house!"

In a statement, the website creators said "Penalty Flag Day" is a joint effort between them, the anonymous group of fans who commissioned the "Fire John Idzik" plane above practice last month and sports bars in "the New York City Metro area."
