Prepare for a Great Season with Dwayne Stanford

Kylie Stiglbauer Men of Oregon: Players and Coaches 0 Comments

When you think about Oregon’s offense, words like fast, strong and resilient come to mind. All-star wide receiver Dwayne Stanford is the epitome of what it means to be a part of Oregon’s offense. The 6’5″ redshirt junior has had an impressive career with the Ducks so far and hopes to keep his streak alive. With a team high of …

The Most Talented Receiving Corps in Ducks History

Jason Selby FishWrap, FishWrap Archive, History 6 Comments

Since the early days of Chip Kelly at the University of Oregon, the wide receiver has been given a big role. Though Kelly has moved on to the NFL, the now head coach Mark Helfrich and offensive coordinator Scott Frost have put a lot of effort into recruiting the best talent at the position, so over time we will see great results. On August 18, GoDucks.com Editor-in-Chief Rob Moseley released an article entitled, “Stanford …

Our recent articles re VA have stirred the feelings of some coaches in my network, and I received the following analysis (below) from one of them, that, while controversial, is also illuminating. I added the GIFs, picture, and my personal endorsement to what he wrote. This is fun stuff, my friends! Charles Fischer So – why would some stupid guy state the absurd: “Vernon Adams …

Jalen Brown: A Name to Know

Brian Perry FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 2 Comments

After star receiver Devon Allen went down with a torn ACL in the Rose Bowl and Darren Carrington was suspended for the National Championship Game and potentially half of the upcoming season, Oregon fans have spent the off-season without a clear idea of what the wide receiver position might look like going forward. Enter Jalen Brown: a 6-foot-1, 200-pound receiver overdue for …

Best WR Corps in School History Will Ease Transition Away From Mariota

Joey Holland FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 6 Comments

The quarterback may fill the most important role on the football field, but he is nothing without his wide receivers. That said, there is perhaps no receiving corps in the nation feeling more pressure than that of the Oregon Ducks, in the wake of Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota’s departure to the NFL. Every fan is familiar with this quarterback storyline. …

2015 Wide Receiver Corps — The Deepest in Ducks’ History

Steven Jackson FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

We don’t yet know who will be throwing passes for the Ducks come fall, whether it be Vernon Adams, Jr. or Jeff Lockie, or even someone else, but we do know who will be catching them. The University of Oregon has never been known for its talented wide outs, but this year could change that. This is the first in …

Loaded With Talent — Ducks Passing Game Set to Soar

Noah Smith FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

Although Oregon has been a run-oriented football team the past few years, the number of times they have run the ball has decreased in both of Mark Helfrich’s seasons as head coach. The difference in the Helfrich era thus far has been athletic passers playing the QB position rather than runners who can somewhat throw. The Chip Kelly-type QB will always be defined …

Omar Garibay FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 3 Comments

The Oregon Ducks have revolutionized the way that college football is played, and for almost 10 years now, the Ducks have been the most entertaining team to watch. Oregon’s no-huddle offense, comprised of speed, great athletes and misdirection, has influenced many programs across the country. Chip Kelly, who is currently the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles and one of …

3 New Offensive Sets You Could See This Fall

Adam Kruse FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

The last 20 years, the Oregon Ducks have created a tradition built on non-tradition. Instead of competing with traditional powerhouse programs such as Michigan, USC and Notre Dame, Oregon created a new category to market and grow the program — a category built on innovation, creativity, speed and constant evolution. For years, Oregon had a large banner hung inside of the practice …

Oregon’s Top 5 2016 NFL Draft Prospects

Rory Davidson FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 5 Comments

Marcus Mariota to the Titans, Arik Armstead to the Niners, Jake Fisher to the Bengals, Hroniss Grasu to the Bears, and Ifo Ekpre-Olomu to the Browns.  These are the names of the Oregon players we heard called by Roger Goodell in this year’s NFL Draft.  Now I think it’s obvious that Mariota was a once-in-a-lifetime player.  The Ducks are also not …

Back to Bralon

Daniel Kantor FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 2 Comments

Let’s take a trip back in time to the offseason of our previous football season. Our receiving corps was a bigger question mark than the quarterback battle is now. Starters Josh Huff and De’Anthony Thomas left for the NFL draft, Daryle Hawkins graduated, and Tight End Colt Lyerla had parted ways with the Ducks. In the midst of all this, there …

Wide Receiver Gauntlet Begins

Jonathan Cervantes FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 0 Comments

The start of Spring practice means there will be a new depth chart for all positions. The Ducks’ five main receivers from last season will be returning, but things will be different. Charles Nelson will be a defensive back, so he won’t be counted on very often in the passing game. But we shouldn’t be too alarmed, because the remaining four …
