Dan Orlovsky On What Went Wrong With Him In Houston

A pretty interesting and refreshingly honest assessment from former Texans QB turned current Colts QB Dan Orlovksy in Paul Kuharsky's AFC South blog today:

Why didn’t he grow into a quarterback who would have been appealing as a starting option during two seasons working in the Houston offense?

"Probably because I didn’t do what they wanted me to do, that’s the reality of it," he said. "I still think and even having been through four practices now in camp, what I learned there about playing this position from coach Kubiak is irreplaceable. I do think he made me a much better quarterback. I think what I am doing on the field shows that. It didn’t work out probably because I didn’t hold up my side of the bargain, that’s the reality of it. I’m not scared to admit that, it wasn’t because of lack of effort. I just didn’t get it done the way they wanted me to get it done.

"I just obviously wasn't the guy that they thought I would be, I assume. When things went down I didn’t get exact details from coach Kubes. It was a tough situation just based on the relationships that I built there, but I am excited to be here."

A professional athlete actually saying he didn't hold up his end of the bargain instead of pointing the finger at someone else? Wow. I'm a bigger Dan Orlovsky fan than I was before I read this.
