Default Article on Dan-O

As a youngster playing football, Dan Orlovsky was blessed with size and a cannon arm.

The former Shelton High and UConn quarterback knew that, but he also had a clear understanding of what it would take to reach his dream of being a starting quarterback in the NFL. He knew size and a cannon arm wouldn't be enough.

"Every quarterback in the league can throw the ball but I always believed, ever since I was playing Pop Warner, that doing things like getting to practice early and working and staying afterward will help you down the road," Orlovsky said.

Orlovsky, 25, spent four years with the Detroit Lions, mostly as the No. 3 quarterback, before signing a three-year, $9.1 million deal, including a $2.4 million signing bonus, with the Houston Texans on March 1 to back up Matt Schaub.


"Paying attention to detail and doing all the little things, I think, is why I was blessed to be in position to get the contract with Houston," Orlovsky said.

Orlovsky, a fifth-round pick by the Lions in 2005, realized he had to make an impression last season if he was going to get another contract.

He made the first of his seven starts Oct. 12 against Minnesota after Jon Kitna was put on injured reserve. Orlovsky made an impression in a 12-10 loss, but one he would probably like to forget.

The Lions were at their 1 when Orlovsky dropped back to pass. The Vikings' Jared Allen broke through the line.

Breaking to his right, Orlovsky saw Allen but inadvertently stepped out of bounds in the back of the end zone. He not only ran out of bounds, but he kept running as if the play were still live while Allen was merely shadowing him and celebrating the safety.

"That wasn't the impression I was looking to make," Orlovsky said, laughing. "But I felt terrible. It was a stupid play and I was really down about it, but Jared DeVries, a defensive end and an 11-year veteran, comes up to me right after the play and says, 'Forget about that. We need you. Everybody makes mistakes.'

"[Wide receiver] Calvin Johnson comes up to me and says, 'Man, I didn't mean to laugh, but that stuff was funny.' So I mean, it happened. I'll be remembered for it, I'm sure. But you have to move on, and I did. After that game, I just went back to paying attention to detail again and doing the little things ó like I always did."

Orlovsky (6 feet 5, 230 pounds) made a more positive impression against the Texans in Houston the following week. The Lions lost that one, 28-21. In fact, they lost them all, going 0-16.

Detroit and Orlovsky made it close, outscoring the Texans 11-0 in the fourth quarter, which included a career-long, 96-yard TD pass from Orlovsky to Johnson. Orlovsky finished 12 of 25 for 265 yards with the TD pass and no interceptions.

Less than five months later, Orlovsky signed with Houston despite missing five games with a hand injury.

"It's a blessing," said Orlovsky, who will marry fiancee Tiffany Lesher in July. "Do I think I deserve that much? No, I don't. But I think I've earned it because I put a lot of work into playing this game and I didn't cheat or cut corners."

He looks at the contract as more of a reward with a greater one still out there ó to be a full-time starter.

"I don't know what the future holds for me here, but I'm going to continue to do the things that got me this far, my mainstays, and I'll continue to gain experience," Orlovsky said. "I may not be in the same place, but my goals have not changed. I want to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. I've made a long-term investment and commitment to making it happen
."

Now that's a refreshingly healthy and realistic way to look at a multi-million dollar contract.

or, as Clint Eastwood said, "'deserve' aint got nothin' to do with it."

I certainly don't want to start a fire storm, but it wouldn't surprise me, after all the ridicule he endured in Detroit (especially for his end zone miscue), he develops into our starting QB within the next 2 years. To date, he has had no real coaching to develop any of his NFL-potential skills and talents. JMHO

I kinda see this too. Since Schaub is due a huge roster bonus next year, if he's not lights out, you need a plan B. You can teach alot, but hard work, humility, and a canon arm arent one of them.

With proper coaching, he can be a very good backup. He certainly has the potential to be a better backup than Copterman. But potential and ten bucks barely gets you a six pack of beer and some smokes these days. Let's see how he does after he gets coached up by our offensive staff.

The thing with the end zone, will haunt him for the rest of his NFL career. I really like the guy's attitude and willingness to learn. I hope he can get it done if Schaub gets hit with another cheap shot and goes down.

He's certainly in a good position. He's got a renowned QB cochem'up HC, a very flattering system and QB ahead of him who has not made it through an entire season. On top of that, his skill set is ideal for what we're doing. Did you ever wonder when you look at the Tacks when it was Young, Collins and Simms. Did you ever think "what the hell kind of QB is the system designed for?

I feel like we're really lucky to have him. Wish him the best too, he appears to be good people.

Orlovsky has tremendous upside and one of the strongest arms in the league. With the skill players we have to complement him I am not at all worried if Schaub goes down this season because I know that Orlovsky will suprise the rest of the league who thinks we'll be sending out the same caliber of production Detroit got out of him.

Either Schaub stays healthy and becomes our franchise QB then we flip Orlo for pick(s).

OR

Schaub proves to be Chris Chandelier 2.0 and we cut bait then have Orlo compete against a rookie and/or FA/Trade aquisition.

I am supremely confident that as long as we have the offensive coaching staff/players we will not have major problems at the QB position. The system is very QB friendly so I highly doubt we see anymore HWWNBN esque games featuring negative net passing yards no matter who we have lining up behind center. That doesn't mean Schaub staying healthy isn't a priority though, his health is the key to our playoffs. We can get by with solid QB play and get to .500 but we wont make the playoffs unless we have continuity at the position with a bonafide franchise QB like Schaub has shown flashes of being.

Barring fairly disasterous results, I expect Schaub to be extended. That being said, I agree that Orlavsky has some chance of taking over for him at some point. However, I don't think a decision has to come down on that until 2011. 2011 would be his last season under contract and Schaub would have one year left. So, it isn't until that point that a decision has to be made on allocating QB resources. We can certainly afford Schaub's extension along side of Orlavsky's three year deal.

What would consequences be if both turn out to be excellent? I can see extending Schaub and keeping O also. Maybe we could use the franchise tag on O if he refuses to sign for good deal. I am ok with two starter type QBs if no favorable trade offer is presented. This should be the year where we have a very good starter at most positions and the back up being an option that does not cause me to run to bath room to throw up.

After reading this, I am really rooting for this guy. He certainly has a very strong arm. If Kubiak's past record means anything, he should be able to turn this guy into a quality NFL QB.

The chron did an article on Orlovsky yesterday. It had some of the same stuff this article had about his time in Detroit, his "big boo boo" in the end zone and so on, but they also had this little tid bit that I thought was interesting;

Orlovsky credits coach Gary Kubiak for making him emphasize his footwork during the ongoing organized team activities at Reliant Park.

ďThatís something I had never experienced before, never had coached that way,Ē Orlovsky said. ďItís going to be a big adjustment for me, but I can see differences already when I try to do that,.


It's a pretty good article and gives a little insight as to what they are doing with Orlovsky. Here's the link. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/6444351.html

I did have my doubts on Orlovsky after the way he left Detroit, but the more I hear about him the more and more I like him. He looks like he knows his role here at the moment and is surely looking forward to winning a game soon lol. Seems like a kid that really just wants to play Quarterback in this league.
