Best Ducks in the NFL: Offensive Edition

Daniel Kantor History 1 Comment

Throughout the Oregon Ducks’ football history, they have provided some incredible NFL talent. Despite being criticized as a program that “does not prepare players for an NFL offense,” Oregon has produced some incredible NFL players. To prove this, I compiled a starting lineup of Ducks throughout history based on their NFL production; do not expect to see Marcus Mariota, Joey Harrington, LaMichael James, or …

While most media outlets focus on former Duck QB, Marcus Mariota, and the latest swirl about him and the 2015 NFL Draft, players such as C Hroniss Grasu are vigorously training in hopes of being drafted by a team. No one knows of his whereabouts with regards to training, but my guess is that he’s still at the UO, working with the …

With the blockbuster NFL trade between the New Orleans Saints and the Seattle Seahawks to swap Jimmy Graham for Max Unger and a 3rd round pick, Pete Carroll has to be wondering who he will put in to replace his Duck alumni at center.

Personally, having been born and bred just outside of New Orleans, I am a Saints fan. As such, while many of …

Championship weekend is officially over, but the NFL showcased a jam-packed Sunday that, much like any other playoff event in professional sports, was exciting, unpredictable and shocking.

FishDuck Staff Men of Oregon: Players and Coaches 0 Comments

In football, a strong and fast offensive line is key to a team’s success.  The entire front must be strong enough to block for the backs, creating running room and giving the quarterback enough time to think.  Especially in Oregon’s renowned spread offense, where it’s a physically daunting task, and easily taken for granted by many fans.  All too often, spectators …

Oregon Can’t Put Players Into the NFL? Ducks in the Super Bowl

College programs love to negatively recruit regarding Oregon and how “they don’t put players into the NFL.”  But even a power outage couldn’t keep this Super Bowl full of Ducks from participating in possibly the greatest Super Bowl in NFL history.  In a 34-31 Ravens victory over the Niners, Duck fans probably had mixed feelings on which team they wanted …
