Q&A w/ Texans Backup QB Dan Orlovsky

The Texans official site today has an interesting interview with new backup QB Dan Orlovsky:

Quarterback Dan Orlovsky was signed by the Texans on one of the first days of free agency this year to back up Matt Schaub. Orlovsky started seven games for the Lions last season, throwing for 1,616 yards, eight touchdowns and eight interceptions. The four-year veteran has been hard at work studying the Texans’ offense this summer and is excited about his first season in Houston.

1. What have you been doing since the end of minicamp?

“I got married on July 5. I went home for basically the week before the Fourth and that weekend, and then actually the day after we got married, we came back down and I’ve just been down here in Houston getting ready. I’ve just been working out the whole month of July, preparing for camp, watching a bunch of film. I’ve been excited to see how things are going to go. I like to try to get myself as prepared for camp as possible. That’s kind of been my routine in years past, so I spend as much time as I can in the environment I’m going to be in.”

2. No honeymoon yet?

“No honeymoon. I did not want to go on a honeymoon and have to worry about eating right and getting in shape and throwing and stuff like that, because then it wasn’t really going to be a honeymoon. So we pushed the honeymoon off to sometime next year. I’m fortunate that my wife was pretty understanding with that, but I’ll make up for it next year, hopefully.”

3. What did you think about the Texans signing Rex Grossman after OTAs?

“It’s nothing that really concerns me or plays into my mindset at all. It isn’t like in my first four years in Detroit there weren’t any type of situations that would have potential to make me uncomfortable or put pressure on me, if you want to say that. I’m focused on what I’m going to do. I’m confident in what I’m going to do. And this is no disrespect to Rex, but if I’m worried about Rex, then I’m worried about the wrong person. My goal is to go beat Matt out.
