Mariota to return to Oregon

Quarterback Marcus Mariota will bypass the 2014 NFL draft and return for his junior season at Oregon, it was announced Tuesday.
That's ok... I didn't want the Vikings to draft him anyway.

Hope they can keep him healthy next year. Somewhat risky IMO. Woulda liked to see him here in Purple...but no guarantee that would happen or that he's gonna be a stud.

Don't forget about Winston.

Would not be surprised to Brett Hundley stay at UCLA as well. Which means the top two QBs will be Bridgewater and... Manziel. :hang:

We still have a chance to get AJ McCarron so there's nothing to worry about. We should also looking into Aaron Murray. Is draft stock is sure to go down now because of his injury. He will be a good mid-round steal

I should add if it's not true at all I hope she does because she could ruin his career, and that is absurd if it's all made up.just want to be fair to both sides.

I hope it works out for him, most of the recent QB's who have elected to stay has turned out to be a poor decision. I'm torn on who to hope for now, Bridgewater I guess. Maybe Manz... nope can't do it sorry, not unless he falls out of the 1st. I also hope the Vikings don't fall into the "50% screen pass" Carr trap either. Hopefully Fresno plays a good defense in a bowl game, then everyone will see that he's mostly average with a strong arm.
