Oregon Spring Game Postgame Quotes - April 28th 2012


Head Coach Chip Kelly

On QB Marcus Mariota and QB Bryan Bennett…
“I thought (Marcus) Mariota did a really nice job…A couple times they (Mariota, Bennett) both forced the ball a bit.”
“It is great for them to get on a big stage and practice in front of a big crowd. I am pleased with the quarterbacks, and that is not a position I am worried about. I am confident about both guys.”

On potential early leader in the quarterback position…
“It is April 28th and we play next on September 1st. Both kids did things today they can learn from both positively and negatively. They have a tremendous amount of upside, and it will be interesting how they will progress over the summer.”

On what to work on in the off season…
 “Overall it is about developing in depth. The offense has questions marks at wide receiver. At every position we have our one and two, but who are the other guys? Wide receiver and tight end are specific questions.”

On overall impression of team…

“Number one the crowd was awesome for us in our 15th practice opportunity. The fact that fans came out to salute the troops and raise food for Lane County; it is a good thing. This was a positive experience overall.”

DL Arik Armstead

On spring game…
“I felt lots of support and I was excited to play out there. I am just trying to improve. I have learned a lot this spring.”

RB Kenyon Barner

On performance…

WR B.J. Kelley
