Portland Thunder Rain All Over LA KISS, 63-47

The Portland Thunder annihilated the Los Angeles KISS on Saturday night, 63-47, behind a great performance from Darron Thomas. Of course, last week, Spokane Shock quarterback Warren Smith lit up the KISS, only to be on the receiving end of an 83-28 beatdown to San Jose this week, so we’ll have to wait another week to actually evaluate Thomas. Since the game wasn’t memorable despite...

The most under-appreciated quarterback in Duck history

Darron Thomas wasn’t as fast as Mariota and wasn’t as finished as a passer, but he led the Ducks to a 24-3 record. He seized the job winning a quarterback competition and never looked back, leading a comeback effort against Tennessee in his second game as redshirt sophomore. Marcus Mariota will never be duplicated or replaced. Oh, the Ducks will have great quarterback play in...

Given Time, There Will Be No Doubting Portland Thunder Quarterback Darron Thomas ☆

DT comes home

If Darron Thomas is starting for the Portland Thunder in a couple of weeks, I just might buy a ticket. The new Arena team has started practice, and Thomas, who was 23-3 as an Oregon starter with two PAC-12 Championships and the Ducks first Rose Bowl win since 1918, is competing to be their quarterback.  The Thunder open with a road game at San Jose on March 17th, and their home...
