After years of being saddled with lackluster quarterbacks, it looks like the New York Jets may have finally found their guy. In fact, Jets' wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson wasn't even able to describe how good he thinks Sam Darnold is without resorting to a host of expletives.

That kind of endorsement should have Jets' fans ready to run through a wall for Darnold. It's also particularly encouraging, as Darnold showed flashes as a rookie, but he wasn't able to deliver consistent production over the course of a full season.

If Darnold is getting coaches to talk about him like this, a breakout season could be on the horizon. Some improvement makes sense, given that it's Darnold's second year in the NFL, but the supporting cast around Darnold has also gotten significantly better.

Most notably, the Jets brought in Le'Veon Bell, but the team also bolstered the offensive line by trading for Kelechi Osemele.

With an improved skill position group and a second-year jump, Darnold could be in for a breakout season in 2019. If that's the case, then like Jefferson, Jets' fans may be using every expletive in the book to describe how much they love Darnold.
