Unbreak my heart: Marcus Mariota’s surprise January decision meant the world to the Ducks

Without Marcus Mariota, this would have been a ruined season, or at least a much different one. The best quarterback in Oregon history has been sacked 25 times, and with a lesser mortal in the pocket, the Ducks, playing with a rebuilt, patchwork offensive line would have been doomed or at least severely limited offensively. With Mariota, they’ve converted 52% of their third downs...
