Why the Jets need to keep Andrew Ladd

The pressure is on for the Jets. After taste with making the playoffs last season fans hunger another playoff berth.

The consensus on management seems that they wish to inject more youth into the lineup with the likes of Nik Ehlers, Nic Petan, and Joel Armia hoping to make the Jets. If these young players are to thrive throughout the regular season, they will need a leader.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so in that vein we'd like to borrow a page from the playbook of other Nation Network sites and introduce our very own weekly mailbag feature which we have craftily re-named Jets Nation Air Mail because nothing says "we write about a team named after aviation equipment" like associating regular features with aviation themes!
