    The Ducks have big shoes to fill with Justin Herbert off to the NFL and according to reports, they’ll add Boston College grad transfer Anthony Brown.

    From a Boston Globe story about Brown leaving Boston College: “As a redshirt freshman in 2017, Brown threw for 1,367 yards and 11 touchdowns but suffered a season-ending knee injury. After returning in 2018 and throwing for 2,121 yards and 20 touchdowns, Brown appeared primed to make a leap this season and threw for 1,250 yards and nine touchdowns over the first six games before his season was again cut short by another knee injury.”

    I feel much better about playing the Ducks if Brown is the starting QB. I am also a BC grad and my opinion after watching games over 3 years.is that he is not very accurate and now with two knee injuries cannot be as mobile anymore.

    I'm not liking the look of the Ducks' QB room if they're bringing in a cripple.

    This is kind of my thought as well. He’s definitely going to have to prove it to me. I don’t think that offense is super dynamic and they’re going to have to replace four really good, veteran starters along the offensive line. Though, to be fair, Penei Sewell could probably start at two spots.

    Brown doesn’t seem to be the slam dunk that Vernon Adams was, especially considering the injury history.

    Seems like a long time since Oregon has recruited and developed a QB within their system. Do they even have a QB coach?
