  • Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky completed 21 of 38 passes for 191 yards, with one touchdown and an interception, in Sunday's 42-17 loss to Arizona. Orlovsky entered the game midway through the third quarter for an ineffective Matthew Stafford, who tossed three interceptions. The backup QB was able to move the ball a bit in the second half, but he did not lead the Lions to a touchdown until the 1:36 mark of the fourth quarter, when he hit Lance Moore on a 13-yard score. Stafford is Detroit's franchise QB, for better or worse, so don't expect Orlovsky to start anytime soon.

  • Dan Orlovsky inched ahead of Kellen Moore in the battle for the backup quarterback job with the Lions on Thursday with a strong effort in the second preseason game against Washington, according to the Detroit Free Press. Orlovsky completed 13 of 17 passes for 118 yards. He engineered two touchdown marches in just two quarters of action. "He's had very good performances," Jim Caldwell said. "Dan is, obviously, a guy that has real good understanding of systems, does a good job in terms of the leadership and he's effective. So he's doing a good job. (But) this is Game 2, so we've got a little ways to go."

  • Dan Orlovsky doesn't want to rehash the past
    By Larry Hartstein

    Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky, who's back with the team after his 2005-08 stint, doesn't like to relive the 0-16 season in 2008. Orlovsky punctuated that debacle by running out the back of his own end zone for a safety. "There's not much I can say to unmask the things that happened or erase those things," Orlovsky told the Detroit Free Press. "My personal aspect of it is I knew I played well. We were just not a good football team. Did I have a part of that? Sure. I wish I played better in certain spaces, but I knew I played well, and I kind of look at it like this: It's hard to play in this league for four years. It's really, really hard to play in it for 10 years."I get the fears maybe with obviously fans and whatnot, but the organization knows what they're doing, and I know I'm a good player, and I certainly hope to just be part of changing some of that past, whether it's directly or indirectly." Orlovsky replaced Shaun Hill as Matthew Stafford's backup.
