    Looks like thet are taking there time and looking at all the options to back-up Schaub; which is nothing but a good thing.

    Orlovsky wouldn't bother me. I think he's got a higher ceiling than Ramsey but Ramsey at least knows a version of the offense.

    Well, since he ^^ beat me to it, here's his highlights against Chicago. His first pick was Calvin's mistake, not his. Look at his passes and tell me he couldn't do the same with AJ as he does with Calvin Johnson. Orlovsky knew how to use Calvin, I don't think Schaub knows how to use AJ to his full potential.

    And no, I'm not calling for Orlovsky to be the starter, but I'd be fine with him being #2 over Ramsey or Boyd.

    He improved as the year went on and I think he would be a very capable backup.

    I dunno but somehow had the impression that Ramsey had been signed, sealed, and delivered but apparently not so. It would seem we haven't settled on anybody as our backup QB and we are still shopping ?

    Yes he belongs in the following distinguished QB class that looked like Pro-Bowlers against the Texans...

    Trent Green
    Cleo Lemon

    Anybody but Ramsey. I think Ramsey isn't anywhere near the done deal we had anticipated. That would make TWICE that we passed on him.

    Anybody but Ramsey.

    He should wear #2 in Houston just to go with the whole safety joke. But I wouldn't mind him either. He has more potential and is younger than Ramsey. I'm sure Kubiak could do a better job working with Orlovsky and breaking his bad tendancies.

    Dan-O! I've wanted Dan the Man since I watched that bomb he threw to Megatron against us last year.

    He's obviously got some issues with things that have been addressed in this thread already, but I'm willing to let Kubes and Shanny do their thing with him.

    If I had to take a guess, I'd guess we try to sign both him and Ramsey.

    OOOoookkkk...

    So... Let's say we get Orlovsky and we let David Anderson go... would we start looking at FA WRs... like... maybe... Shaun McDonald from the Lions?

    I dunno, is this the guy who ran 10 yards more in one game, still trying to pass on the run after exiting the EZ ?
    But he definitely looked good in their game against us in Reliant last year.

    I'm going to predict that Orlovsky becomes a Texan.

    Kubiak will like how Orly hasn't really been given a fair shake with the overall problems in Detroit. Kubes will think Orly is more athletic than Ramsey, less prone to injury than Ramsey. And he will think Orly is a guy he can work with and mentor.

    Kubiak looooves to gamble for the reward of turning a guy's career around. As do most NFL coaches/staffs. It's basically a grown-up pissing match between the guys in the NFL.

    I can't see ANY upside to Ramsey. IMO, Sage is easily > Ramsey and we all know how that ended....

    Orlovsky will be a Texan.
