Rubber Duckies QB Says Nick Fairley Is A Dirty Player

Well it seems Oregon quarterback Darron Thomas said yesterday that Nick Fairley is basically a dirty player. It’s about that time when kids start running their mouths before big games.

“Oh yeah, we’ve seen he’s got a lot of dirty plays, throwing people around after the play and things like that,” Thomas said Thursday. “But that’s just football. I don’t worry about it because it’s a physical game.”

Oregon hasn’t seen this physical of a defense all year. Thomas takes for granted he and LaMichael James can just outrun those physical guys and doesn’t worry about it. The Ducks will work the perimeter, and that will be their game plan. However, Auburn’s front four should blow the Ducks right off the line, disrupt plays and be in the backfield.

Fairley responded well to Thomas’ comments.

“I just go out there and give it 110 percent,” Fairley said. “I go out there and try to make plays for my team. If it’s me playing dirty, if that’s what they call it, that’s what it is.”

Fairley is the type of kid who will take your lunch money and punch you in the mouth right after that. And sure, some of his plays have been questionable, but his motor never stops. If you’re Thomas, it’s probably better not to bring this up four days before the dance.

Get out your shotguns boys and girls, because it’s officially Duck season.
