Dan Orlovsky has had rough times in the NFL....
Adam Schefter did an interesting article on Dan Orlovsky and Ernie Sims, obviously two former Lions who were a part of the 0-16 season in 2008. Both of them, as some of you already realize, have found themselves with another team that is creeping ever so close to the 0-16 season as well.
I remember when the Lions were going through that season. I heard some analysts say that going 0-16 was harder than going 16-0 in this league. Although I disagree with that, I think I understand their driving point. The talent levels on the professional teams are good from top to bottom. Every team SHOULD be able to win games. Obviously, a losing mentality and an inability to pick yourself up when the season is lost can cause this to be a bit tougher than any of us can realize.
To live through two of those seasons has to be amazingly tough on the football psyche within both of these guys. I feel very bad for them. Talk about tough luck.
