Dan Orlovsky has already experienced this nightmare. Three years later, he knows for certain that he doesn't want to relive it. The Indianapolis Colts backup quarterback was part of the Detroit Lions' infamous season in 2008 when the beleaguered club lost all 16 games. "Obviously I don't have a ton of advice on how you handle it successfully," Orlovsky told the Indianapolis Star. "The team I was on, we didn't. All I know is you don't want to be a part of it." Orlovsky re-signed with the winless Colts after veteran quarterback Kerry Collins suffered a concussion. The 28-year-old Orlovsky played in 10 games for the Lions during their infamous season, completing 143 passes for 255 yards with eight touchdowns and eight interceptions. This year, Orlovsky has completed seven of 11 passes for 55 yards with the Colts.
