Mark Helfrich asked who are the team leaders this season.

Who are the team leaders for this year's squad? That was the question asked Head Coach Mark Helfrich during his weekly media conference on Tuesday afternoon as the Ducks prepare for the Washington Huskies on Saturday.The Ducks are 3-3 so far this season and many wonder if there is a crisis in leadership for a team that made all the way to the National Championship last season.

Helfrich mentioned two senior who have become more vocal with teammates as the adversity of losing continues to haunt the defending Pac-12 Champion. 

The question that remains of course, is what the team leaders doing enough to pull the Ducks out of a painful nose dive?

While there is noticable improvements in some areas of the Ducks, other areas like pass coverage still suffer. This week the Ducks are playing a very confident Washington team, just off a road victory against USC while Oregon lost in heart breaking fashion to Washintton State at Autzen Stadium in double-overtime.
