“Excuse my French when I say say this, but he’s a f—–g dude,” Jefferson said, via NJ.com. “He’s a f—–g dude with a f—–g arm and he’s accurate as s–t. So excuse that.”
That kind of language has been employed by plenty of people around the Jets in the past, but rarely to express positive feelings about the team or its players. Jefferson was able to elaborate on what he likes about Darnold without working blue.
“It’s everything,” Jefferson said. “The way that he works – he’s here early in the morning, he stays after, he probably doesn’t leave this building until six, seven at night. He’s in the old quarterback room. I’ve been so impressed with this kids work ethic and the way he attacks everything. It’s just been awesome to see a young kid like that. It’s almost like he’s been here before. He’s a young guy, but he has a lot of veteran attributes to him.
