REACTION: THIS WEEK, THE DUCKS
I'm really up in the air on this one now.
Preseason I thought we could not lose this game with the loss of Mariotta, Cook being a senior, Ed Davis leading the defense, a home game and the revenge factor.
Then a good QB shreds our secondary. It was not so much that he threaded a needle it was that most of the completions rarely had a defender in the picture. Many things can be cleaned up this week like the kicking coverage. But talent in the secondary and at linebacker can't be improved. The loss of Davis is going to be tough to overcome. We will have to play smarter and coach smarter. I also think both teams did not show much of their playbook in the first game. We'll see whose is better Saturday.
Oregon has the new QB graduate transfer from Eastern Washington. The team he beat yesterday. Yes they are FCS but they are also ranked #6 in that division in the preseason poll. Even so, they did rack up 438 passing yards with two QB's as their #1 got knocked out the game in the third quarter
How about the first one to 40 wins?
