The holidays are here and the Ducks are getting set to push toward signing day in February. The DuckNation mailbag has been overflowing with questions. It's about time to lighten the load and get right to it.


Stephen R. (Laguna Beach, Calif.): Are the Ducks really lagging this bad in recruiting? An offensive lineman from New Jersey that Stony Brook and Delaware wouldn't offer, now has an offer from a top-five team with an almost two months left until signing day. We should be doing better!

DuckNation: I guess Chip Kelly and Steve Greatwood -- two former national coaches of the year -- should call NFL All-Pro Max Unger of the Seattle Seahawks and remind him that he isn't supposed to be any good. Unger was a recruit that nobody wanted out of Hawaii and he turned out to be ok. A lot of fans hate the term, 'trust the coaches,' but really, trust the coaches. Also, check out Jake Pisarcik's senior film and you'll likely be singing a different tune.
