Garoppolo's wasn't nearly as bad as Orlovsky's though.  Jimmy ran out of room while backing up and took a couple of steps out of the back of the end zone.  Orlovsky stepped out the back and kept running for another 10 yards.

Much like how today's Butt Punt wasn't as embarrassing as the Butt Fumble.

/ it was about as funny, though

Neondistraction: Orlovsky stepped out the back and kept running for another 10 yards.


Orlovsky was running for his life from an unguarded Jared Allen.

I'd keep running until I reached the parking lot

Grappolo took a similar safety last night by stepping out of the end zone.

I saw it live and thought Denver would have the option of taking the TD.  Didn't realize a safety stopped the clock until they explained it.

but then it made sense;  I remember Belichick maybe 15+ years ago..oh hell I just googled "NFL inentional safeties" and found this.

For some reason Fark won't let me add it via the Youtube link thingie, but, here it is.  6 minutes of intentional safeties.  Kinda like how when a smart running back or WR, when he has a clear touchdown, dives at the 3 yard line, staying inbounds, to burn clock.  the Fantasy Football dorks lose their shiat but it's about the dub, baby!

Dan's was "dumber" as someone noted, he kept running OOB, and re-entered the field, Jimmy just lost track of about 6 inches (said your mom last night) but, his is also dumb, as he threw a pick six and arguably got his WR injured.

he had to live with the infamy of being the only NFL QB (well, that's prob an overstatement) - being the most recent NFL QB, to commit the dumbest safety.  it was a club; membership one.  Now it's two.  whenever people talk shiat to Orlovsky ,and he's good natured about it, he can say, "uh-uh, you gotta bring up Jimmy now."

hence is, whatever, "FREEDOM!!!" tweet.  the club of one is now two.  Plus, Orlovsky ended up being a journeyman.  5th round pick on a terrible Detroit team.  Jimmy was a second rounder playing for Belichick and got forced out, where all he did was go to a Super Bowl.  basically, Jimmy should have known better;  Orlovksy just got rattled but he wasn't  a great QB anyways.  he only appeared in 26 games over his career and was out of football, several times, and signed as a backup or #3 QB.  12 starts, "only" 15 TDs.  He and Jimmy were on whole other QB echelons.

/"I guess we found out Orlovksy's fark nicknake / his agent's / dad's / wife's nickname, LOL!"

I'm surprised this hasn't happened more often. I think I saw a punter do it decades ago.
