Dan Orlovsky: Master of Disaster [corrected]

So, with the announcement that Dan Orlovsky has been made the starting quarterback of the Manningless-Colts we have the potential for history-in-the-making. Can you imagine being the guy who Quarterbacked the only previous 0-16 season/team in NFL history and being tapped to take over the reins of THIS particular team of FiveHeadless FiveHeads? Your name will go down in HISTORY as the "leader" of two different winless teams. He may be handling it just fine, but I wouldn't be sleeping too well at night.

The only comfort is that while people remember names like Benedict Arnold, Lee Harvey Oswald, Typhoid Mary, etc... They don't tend to remember the names of the captains of the Titanic, the Hindenburg, the Hood, etc... Maybe he'll benefit from that phenomenon.

I think Dan Orlovsky has some talent, but if he couldn't flourish in Houston with the tools at his disposal here, I'm not optimistic that he's going to be able to salvage a win from that smoldering pile of implosion debris that is the Colts at this point.

[12/01/2011 - T-Moar correctly pointed out that the Expansion Bucs were also winless (for a long dern time it turns out) so my premise is inherently flawed and I am quite embarrassed about it and hereby make a vow of silence for 60 seconds by way of penance. Starting right.... now.]
