QB Dan Orlovsky signed with the Detroit Lions with the understanding he would be Matthew Stafford's backup.

Then he went out for his preseason debut and got smoked by the team's No. 3 quarterback.

Orlovsky was a disaster Saturday night against the Cleveland Browns, while Kellen Moore completed 11 of 13 passes and fired a game-winner to Corey Fuller to lift Detroit (1-0) to a 13-12 comback win.

That's sure to light up talk radio and Twitter -- and our MLive comments section -- with demands for Moore to replace Orlovsky. But coach Jim Caldwell, Orlovsky and even Moore himself did their best after the game to dispel any notion that there's a (backup) quarterback controversy brewing behind Stafford.
