Morning Quack Fix: Media Day, Reloading the running game; Byrd and Unger sign.

Happy Media Day, there's plenty of Quack for everyone.

  • You can catch streaming coverage of Pac-10 Media Day. Into Twitter? Well, you can tweet with Pac-10 coaches as well.
  • Things are shaping up for Oregon's running game as the team gets closer to fall practices. LeGarrette Blount is the given among the ball carriers, but Duck coaches and players see depth and talent through the entire depth chart.
  • Want proof all the Oregon RBs are ready to go? Let's go to the video. Props to the R-G's Chris Pietsch for producing just enough video this summer to keep us all lathered up.
  • Oregon senior Ed Dickson was named to the preseason watch list for the Mackey Award as the nation's top tight end. His toughest competition is probably within the Pac-10 conference.
  • Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News is reporting that former Oregon safety Jairus Byrd has signed with the Buffalo Bills. A second round pick, Byrd signed a 4-year deal for up to $4.2 million, with $2.4 million guaranteed. Unfortunately, Byrd won't see the field for a couple weeks as he recovers from a sports hernia injury. Former Duck center Max Unger has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks. Also a second-round pick, Unger gets over $3 million, with $1.95 million guaranteed. Note to Max: you shoulda played safety big guy.
  • Bleacher Report weighs in with a couple tidbits. First, a preview of Oregon's linebackers. Is this Oregon's return to the "Gang Green" level of play? Also, the BR's Jeff Kneis selects his Oregon All-Decade team...ahh, the memories.
  • Former Oregon receivers coach Robin Pfluegrad has landed at Montana. No surprise there.

If you find more, don't hesitate to pile on.
