Up until tonight, Dan Orlovsky had the the honor to one of the worst plays in NFL history by inadvertently running out of the back of the end zone and committing a safety in a 12-10 loss in 2008 (the year the Lions went 0-16)


But, thanks to Jimmy G, the aforementioned play now has company from the 49ers 11-10 loss to the Broncos:


I'm trying to decide which is worse. On one hand Orlovsky, a 3rd stringer that year behind Jon Kitna and Daunte Culpeppers corpse, was under pressure and panicked. On the other hand, Jimmy G has logged a lot of snaps in pressure situations and should know game situation management better. It also appears Jimmy G had a play to Deebo and wanted to go that way but didn't pull the trigger (hard to see from the tv angle if a DB was in position to make a play). In contrast, Orlovsky could have stood firm in the pocket and gone with a "Fuck it, Calvin Johnsons down there somewhere" pass which was usually a good bet.

Naturally, Twitter is having a field day including Dan Orlovsky himself:

In my opinion, it's not close...

Jimmy G took two steps out and got rid of the ball... which is what a QB is supposed to do... and he couldn't get out of the OTs to throw it away...

Dan Orlovsky took more than 5 steps and still didn't know he was out and never got rid of the ball... and had he just stayed in, he could of kept running and thrown the ball out for a fresh new play...

But Orlovsky also looked like he subconscious went to the white to use it as a run way... like he would of got tracked down, but he had no reason to keep backing up...

Seems like a no-brainer most obvious thing to me. Dan's first game action vs Jimmy's how many years in the NFL and games played? You can easily excuse the first timer. The seasoned vet, played in a Super Bowl ... clearly Jimmy is vastly worse. Not even any room to dispute that, lol.

dfosterf (9m) : Just watched the highlights. Pretty awesome. Good for Baker!
dfosterf (1h) : I missed Baker's heroics also. Gonna go watch it now. Someone commented that it was Favre-like
dfosterf (1h) : ...and the pickins' are slim on that wire, even if he does correct his roster
Zero2Cool (1h) : He doesn't log in until Sunday. We'll see what he does. Might have mailed this week in as it doesn't matter to him for playoffs.
dfosterf (1h) : According to VOR by his inaction, Jackson is playing. Everyone else doesn't think so
Zero2Cool (1h) : Baker looked better than I expected him too. Passed out during first half though so I missed the heroics.
Zero2Cool (1h) : When Jacobs got dinged. I saw Adams clutching his hand. I was worried a bit there.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Any update on Lamar Jackson??
Zero2Cool (1h) : You know it! Can't wait!!!
Zero2Cool (1h) : It'll be sweet too. Davante Adams will snare 4.2 points and be reason why I win!
Zero2Cool (1h) : Boom! Pow!! Gonzo!!!
Zero2Cool (1h) : I get to drop the juggernaut of the league.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Then when I get in.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Looks like Sweep might lose so still got some hope.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Akers did OK, but we'll see if Burks gets 9 or more to see how bad a choice that was haha
Zero2Cool (1h) : Are players I should have signed instead of Derek Carr.
Zero2Cool (1h) : Packers
Zero2Cool (1h) : Bay
Zero2Cool (1h) : Green
dfosterf (1h) : The American people are suckers. They are increasing the value of Paul Whelan to Putin as the bargaining chip he holds. Chain Chain Chain...
dfosterf (3h) : He's no Jared Goff
Zero2Cool (3h) : Derek Care. Bad pickup.
buckeyepackfan (12h) : 98 yds, no timeouts, no problem
Zero2Cool (20h) : Rush of 10+ or Reception of 20+. Packers have 86
Zero2Cool (20h) : Only 5 teams have more explosive offensive plays than Packers.
Zero2Cool (20h) : I suppose too if there are any career statistics he wants to aim for himself, or Lewis or Cobb maybe?
Zero2Cool (20h) : UNLESS ... Rodgers is leaning towards retirement and says he'd rather finish his career on the field, not the bench.
Zero2Cool (20h) : I'm wiling to bet once eliminated, we'll see Jordan Love finish out the season.
Zero2Cool (20h) : That's why Rodgers is still playing.
Zero2Cool (20h) : I think he's full of crap. Packers are still hopeful for Playoffs.
Zero2Cool (20h) : He also thinks Seahawks are perfect trading partner to get Love.
Zero2Cool (20h) : Cowherd thinks Packers are hiding Jordan Love.
dfosterf (20h) : Lord of War movie. The planes used in its production were his.
dfosterf (20h) : Merchant of death. Ain al Asad Airbase, Baghdad. US Airforce gave his pilots cards for free fuel when he flew God knows what into Iraq for US contractors. Over 500,000 gallons
Zero2Cool (20h) : I had them nearly full time, but they spent Winter Break with the mom. So I had 7-10 days to get it done without having to hide it
Zero2Cool (20h) : For many years, the girls spent Christmas with their mother's, so I'd get their presents few days after Christmas.
dfosterf (20h) : A lot of activity. Reminds me of one year I had to do all my Christmas shopping an hour before the Kmart closed on Christmas eve, the only store open
Zero2Cool (20h) : K. Walker injury has me concerned. So, had to panic-add RB Akers ...
Zero2Cool (21h) : I just plunked Akers up and started him. Baker at QB, I'm hoping lots of rushing haha. I dunno. Not convinced
dfosterf (21h) : Maybe VOR won't realize he doesn't have a QB, WR and kicker. You'd have a shot this week
dfosterf (21h) : Carr will probably get hurt in the 1st quarter trying to run. ?Statham? can come in and toss to Adams
Zero2Cool (21h) : No Aaron Donald. Hopefully Derek Carr runs for three TD's and throws 2 TD's to WR Hollins
Zero2Cool (21h) : Adams is gonna torch Rams today. I hope for shootout!!
Zero2Cool (21h) : RB Aaron Jones topped 5,000 yards career. Pretty nice!
Zero2Cool (21h) : Folks saying Leonhard is why Rex Ryan defense was so good. He's got the cure for RPO's.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Reading lots of good things about Jim Leonhard.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Seeing some talk that Packers are poised to make post-bye run.
dhazer (22h) : packfan she is a black lesbian that hates america, it checks all the boxes for a democrat
Zero2Cool (23h) : Keisean Nixon makes PFF’s third-quarter All-Pro team
Zero2Cool (23h) : Only thing I've seen is that we brought back someone from WNBA while we have a former Marine hitting four years.
