Oregon Ducks What is there to say the guy really is a good player....... Offense: He is incredibly tough to stop as he is very efficient with his pass game and is without a doubt the best at moving his QB in the pocket. It's frustrating because you can't really play him for one thing or another. In the run game he likes to suck you into the middle and pop it outside. He likes to run the pitch on short down situations. The biggest key against him on defense is your ability to tackle. He has the propensity to hit for "big" plays and I think he is confident he can outscore any of us. The only real deficiency is that he will make a bad throw but for some reason he is always able to come down with a user catch on ill-advised throws it is uncanny. Outside of the quick slant his pass patterns take a little time so if you can get pressure like USC did you can cause him some problems. I don't know this guy personally but I can tell he is probabaly pretty bright and he does not fluster easy. That is one of the things I pride myself on but against him I just don't adjust. I guess you could say he is in my head right now. He will see your patterns and adjust if you stack the box he will spread the field, if you play to light at the line he will run up the middle. In the pass game he is a master of turning a broken play into something positive for the Ducks. Defense: I don't think his defense would work in the "real world" but in this game it is pretty tough. He is uncanny with his safeties and will switch them around just depending how many receivers you have on each side. He shows blitz but rarely comes..... he will give you time but will find your target and will User Pick you if let him. I think you can run against him but he is a great tackler so plays I would normally hit for 1st downs are now 5 yards gains. He takes me away from my comfort level and I make to many mistakes at this point. I know I lost this last game but I am eager for next year because for the first time in a while I will actually have to give some thought on how to attack somebody. Keys: *tackle well *quick passes *run up the middle *throw in a screen pass (only quick ones) *He likes to run the wide side of the field *He likes crossing patterns underneath and likes to throw to the middle of the field *don't be predictable *Get the lead ( he is a downhill runner) *Throw deep! Good Luck!
