Whether it's your favorite sports squad or your personal life, having a few different options on your team can be beneficial. But it can and likely will bring some drama, too. Despite a solid win over Washington State, starting quarterback (for now) Darron Thomas sounded a little defensive in postgame interviews. In his first game back from injury, Thomas threw two interceptions and was pulled for redshirt freshman Bryan Bennett, who would go on to lead the Ducks to three touchdown drives. Thomas later said this of his 153-yard, one touchdown, and two interception performance: "You look at the stats, I don't think it was that bad." Head coach Chip Kelly said he thought Bennett was the better second half option with a slim five-point lead while offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich said the team has all their faith in Thomas and that there's nothing more to it. With a huge match-up against Stanford less than two weeks away, we're wondering if Dr. Phil may be needed to sort things out. —Ralph Warner
