    I think Nors just enjoys inciting a riot.....he is that guy that yells fire or bomb in a crowded room.

    Surely this is a troll job.

    Or we are dealing with people that have little to no idea who Dan Orlovski is :)
    Have you watched him in College and Preseason past few years?

    Tremendous #2 thought for us.

    Of course, Kitna was 6 of 7 for 106 yards and a TD, and Stanton was 5 of 6 for 27 yards... IOW, ALL the Lions' QBs had an easy time of it last night...

    Now, let's look at the play by play description from NFL.com describing Dan's night:

    Short right to Felton for 6 yards...
    Short right to Bellamy for 5 yards...
    Short left to Gaines for 10 yards...
    Short left to Bellamy for 8 yards...
    Short right to Standiford for 10 yards...
    Incomplete deep right to Ellis...
    Short right to Standiford for 9 yards...
    Incomplete short right to Fitzsimmons...
    Short left to Bellamy for 8 yards...
    Deep right to Middleton for 25 yards...
    Incomplete deep middle to Ellis...

    So, he opened up by completing 5 straight dumpoff passes, for 39 yards... then he started looking downfield, and went 3 for 6, for 42 yards... my understanding is that he nearly got picked twice on the downfield stuff...

    Yeah, what a GREAT game... I mean, in 3 possessions, he led his team to THREE points... 1 completion of over 10 yards...

    You're easily impressed, but then again, you seem to be an Orlovsky groupie...

    Have YOU?? I ask because this is Orlovsky's preseason stats line going into this preseason:

    71 completions on 130 attempts (54.6 per cent), for 869 yards (6.7 yards per attempt), 7 TDs, 6 ints... that works out to a 74.2 quarterback rating... his completion percentage, yards per attempt and interception percentage (4.6 per cent) are all unacceptable...

    So, what part of those numbers screams "solid NFL backup" to you??

    I'd posted those numbers earlier in the thread, and presumably you read them, so now you're just flat-out lying, trying to convince folks that this guy is better than he is... why you wanna be like that, Nors?? You know perfectly well that he has NOT been good in preseason to date, yet here you are, trying to insinuate that he has...

    It's pretty sad when you're reduced to playing fast and loose with the truth in order to defend your position, Nors...

    Kitna starter
    Stanton the Henson Boy wonder to be

    Thank you for making my point!

    Millen doesn't have the balls to keep the right #2 :)

    Your point was that Orlovsky would make a terrific backup QB for Tony Romo...

    He won't... so you have made no point...

    Well, he DOES evaluate talent...

    He does a really bad job of it, but he tries... :D

    So how is old Dan doing now? Any shot that he's actually going to be looking at a new position as a backup in Dallas? :p
