Orlovsky returns to Lions as backup quarterback

Captain Comeback - Orlovsky edition

It's been quite a long time since the Colts have come from behind to win.  No one ever expected the drought to end at the hands of Dan Orlovsky but in the crunch he got it done: This is when things got out of control for the Texans.

Painter v. Orlovsky

Some have made the claim recently that Orlvosky has played at a level Curtis Painter is not capable of. I believe Painter not only played at that level, but surpassed it. Painter's play was never the same after the New Orleans game. Something about that experience damaged him going forward. While Orlovsky is clearly better than Painter was in his last few weeks, he's not...

It was his 10th start and 19th appearance in seven NFL seasons. It was his first victory. He wasn't giving away the game ball. Orlovsky played for the 2008 Detroit...
