Happy Birthday JetNation

When we launched JetNation.com seven years ago, the original idea was to provide a home for Jets fans so that they could talk about the Jets without the fear of being censored.  Please remember, these were the dark days of the internet, Twitter and Facebook had not yet been born.  Thanks to the hard work [...]

When the Jets announced their 2012 coaching staff, they announced that they had retained quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh, who previously was “being evaluated.” This is one of those non-moves that should have Jets fans shaking their heads.
