It's Vince Lombardi who is credited with famously saying "show me a good loser, and I'll show you a loser." The smart money says the legendary Packers coach's head would be spinning if he could see this quarterback's record.
Colts QB Dan Orlovsky has been in the wrong place at the wrong time his entire NFL career. The former Connecticut signal caller has played in 16 games over his professional career – dating back to 2005 – without tasting victory, according to the Detroit News. Orlovsky's appeared in three games this season and is 14-for-21 for 121 yards with no TDs and no interceptions.
We don't need to double check to see that .000 is tied for the worst winning percentage in NFL history. JaMarcus Russell (.280), Ryan Leaf (.190) and Rick Mirer (.353) are often considered the worst quarterbacks since 1970.
And while he hasn't been given the chance those quarterbacks have, Orlovsky does have a shot at being part of the only two 0-16 clubs in the 92-year history of the National Football League. He was with the winless wonders that were the 2008 Detroit Lions. If you don't remember, Orlovsky started seven games for those '08 Lions and played in three others.
In 2009 and 2010 he was a backup for the somewhat more competitive Houston Texans, but only appeared in a single game, not attempting a pass in a loss last december to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Orlovsky hasn't always been on such bad teams, and he holds school records for yards (10,706) and touchdowns (84) at UConn. While at Shelton High School he led his prep team to a perfect 12-0 record and the Connecticut state championship.
In the NFL, Orlovsky has thrown 8 touchdowns and 8 interceptions with a completion percentage of 56 during his 16-game career.
Things don't expect to get much better this week for the Colts. Orlovsky's team is a 21-point underdog against Tom Brady's New England Patriots.
This play pretty much sums up Dan Orlovsky's time in the NFL.
