“I remember vividly the morning after Daniel was drafted, I did a breakdown tape of him versus Temple and I said, ‘His greatest flaw is that he panics with the football in moments of pressure,’ ” Orlovsky recalled. “His season will come down to 10 plays. Anybody can throw it away, take a sack and live to fight another down — literally anyone can do that — but starters do it.”
