Jimmy Garoppolo ‘puts foot down on racism’ and Dan Orlovsky cannot be happier [Video]

When you think of Dan Orlovsky, chances are that the first thing that comes to your mind is the embarrassing moment when he ran out of the back of the end zone while he was a quarterback for the Detroit Lions. Well, thanks to Jimmy Garoppolo, Orlovsky now has a new best friend.

Ever since that moment happened, Orlovsky has constantly been made fun of and trolled on social media on a daily basis.

In fact, Orlovsky once said he is the “poster boy” for the Lions' 0-16 team.

“I’m still the poster boy for it, unfortunately,” Orlovsky said back in 2017. “And the good thing for me is I’ve got super thick skin and I don’t really run from much so it’s not hard for me to quote-unquote talk about it because of those aspects.

“I don’t think about it a ton. That’s not how I remember myself. But it’s not like one of those things where you can get a misdemeanor DUI as a teenager and it gets removed from your record-type thing if you do a bunch of community service. It’s a forever thing for me.”

During an interview in 2017 with Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Dan Orlovsky said he was “an idiot” on the play.

“Ask any quarterback, more often than not, you catch a snap and you get pressure, you either climb the pocket immediately or run with some depth to the right or the left depending where the pressure is,” Orlovsky said. “And my pressure came from off my left hip, so it was just my natural reaction to run with some depth away from it and by the time I took three or four steps I’m obviously well out of bounds and unaware just because I was an idiot in that moment. That’s kind of how it happened.”
