Oregon Ducks QBs: Grading Bryan Bennett and Marcus Mariota on Spring Game

Even a fan like me who loves defense recognizes that the BIG story that came out of the Oregon Ducks spring game on Saturday was the heated competition developing at the quarterback position following Darron Thomas' departure for the NFL, er, departure.

Bryan Bennett vs. Marcus Mariota for a lot of marbles. Not all the marbles, but a lot of them.

Now, fans, hear me out: One day does not a quarterback make. Haven't you ever had a bad day at the wrong time? Like the day you had a big job interview and you woke up with a huge, blinding zit and not a clean white shirt anywhere to be seen?

Spoiler alert...Bennett had that kind of day yesterday.

It doesn't mean he's suddenly stupid or uncoordinated. It doesn't mean he won't ever be sharp again. It just means he had one bad day, while the guy who might make the corner office before him had a great day.

Following is my analysis of Mariota vs. Bennett ON ONE DAY.
