Orlovsky, E. Sims Can't Catch a Break

Medium_022109-dan-orlovsky_medium
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.
