What is Jets X-Factor?
Jets X-Factor is not a fan site. It’s an AP-Style, journalistically responsible organization providing fans the information they need, rather than what they want, to hear.
Jet X is a premium New York Jets membership site (not affiliated with the Jets organization in any official fashion). Rather than settling for casual-fan content that projects little-to-no-football knowledge, Robby Sabo and Michael Nania decided it was time to step it up a bit. Jets fans deserve so much more than the casual content riddled across the web.
Jets X-Factor is a fully-credentialed premium New York Jets membership platform offering fans diehard, football-quality content that spits in the face of casual information.

Michael Nania is the best analytical New York Jets mind in the world, combining his statistical expertise with game film to add proper context to the data. Nania scrapes every corner, ensuring you know all there is to know about everyone from the QB to the long snapper. Nania’s Numbers, Nania’s Sam Darnold Grades and Nania’s All-22 give fans a deeper and more well-rounded dive into the Jets than anyone else can offer.
