SJ - September 6, 2020

Former quarterback Dan Orlovsky, who played seven seasons in the NFL including the historic 0-16 season with the Lions, told an incredible story about his time in Detroit.

On Chris Long's NFC North preview podcast, Orlovsky told the story of the time his offense coordinator fell asleep during a game.

He claimed the Lions got the ball on a change of possession and instead of a play call he could hear snoring on the other end of the headset.

It's a crazy story.  Almost as crazy as Dan Orlovsky being in the NFL in the first place.

This is the dude who lost a game by accidentally running out of the back of the end zone.
