Dan Orlovsky and Ernie Sims both know what an 0-16 year feels like.  They don't want to repeat the feat:

He and Sims know what everyone else in Indy doesn’t: it’s impossible to glean anything positive from 0-16. Not for the guys who put in the work to try to win. Sure, the team gets a No. 1 overall draft pick, but the Colts look like they will get that anyway.

“Nothing. I can say anything good came from it,” Orlovsky said. “I don’t think I will go through that again, at least I hope not. There’s no fun to it.”

Sims actually smiles when talking about a lousy situation. He is remarkably upbeat, not what one would expect given the line of questioning. But then he informs he’s happily married for the past two years and he and his wife welcomed Ernie Sims IV, 8 pounds and 4 ounces, on Oct. 4. He has a family to play for each game. He tackles his job as a nickel LB with energy and enthusiasm, trying to do anything he can to succeed.
