    I also retired from the NFL today. Just thought I'd let you know.

    Why'd he do that when The Bears, Browns, Phins and Raiders still need a QB?:rant:

    11 or 12 years in the league? We can laugh about his performance, but he made a pretty nice living. If he was smart about managing his money, he's set for life.

    Dan Orvlasky has stepped out of the back of the endzone, and into NFL history.

    6'5" but he looks like he should be on a Lucky Charms box.

    Well, since he's a quarterback, he has to have earned a fair amount of money. He wasn't good with the Rams, but I wish him luck in his future endeavors.

    Good for him. Who cares what others think. Long career making great money, enjoying a lifestyle that most of us will never have. Once in awhile he gets the keys to the machine and gets to try his hand at something almost no one gets to do. Yes, I'm jealous of Dan freaking Orlovski.

    The way I see it: he's also a great role model for aspiring young players. Watching him play makes others think: "maybe I CAN do it". "Maybe I have the skills". "If I put in the time and effort, I can get to the NFL".

    With skills that are not that great, how did he do it? Is he great in the classroom? Great in practice? Is he the kind of guy who executes plays exactly the way coaches want? Players like Bradford with the skills but maybe not the brain or leadership skills can learn from a backup who executes perfectly, reads defenses, motivates others (whatever it is that he has)

    I always thought backup QB is one is the best jobs in the world.

    Title should have been "Ex-Rams QB retires". The thread would have gotten looks from the Bradford guys. ;)

    They want to retire his number but they're not sure which team should have the ceremony since he has played with 14 different NFL teams.

    You're a couple weeks off for that announcement, but I hear Big Ben announced his retirement!
