    To choke or not to choke?

    Did Peyton simply choke or was it more like he just wasn't clutch?

    I for one don't care for stats period, aside from winning and losing because at the end of the day QB's are judged by W/L and being able to somehow elevate in the most crucial moments of the biggest games. It feels like forever now I've had to hear about how Peyton is the best ever and how hes a surgeon passing the football. While I do agree he is elite in that way I do doubt his clutch factor in big games as evident with his 9-9 post season record.

    When talking about the the best ever QB's shouldnt the bling be a decisive factor as to who deserves that title above other factors?

    This is exactly the point Deion Sanders was trying to make on NFLN and the others shot him down. They said he was being too harsh on poor Mr. Wonderful! But the truth hurts. When it's "balls to the wall" time, Manning fails to get it done repeatedly. How can you be the greatest ever, if when you need to step up the most you cannot. A QB is supposed to be the leader, thus being the "best ever" means sometimes you need to be at your best in the clutch. Every player has good days and bad days. But when your bad days always coincide with the most important ones you surely cannot be the "best".

    On point Bub. I have no problem with saying Payton could be the best ever QB in regular seasons, but surely he'd trade in his 4 mvp trophies for another ring. Who wouldn't?

    At the time I swear was hoping the Pats would lose just 1 game in the undefeated 07 regular season because I believe they would have been better of with less press/records/pressure heading into the playoffs.

    What i guess I'm alluding to is it is my belief that the only thing that matters is playoff success, especially for QB's.

    I was hoping the Colts would have gone 16-0. Can you imagine as a Pats fan how much sweeter Peyton's pick 6 would have been if they were undefeated..lol is that even possible?lol

    Badazz, it's so easy to talk to people, why do you make it seem so hard?

    Didn't you hear?  It was the O-line and WR's fault.

    Well said.  The league and the press have been trying to turn this guy into the Babe Ruth or Tiger Woods of the NFL.  He isn't.  He's more like Greg Norman.  He's unquestionably a great regular season QB, but when the pressure really gets turned up, as in playoff football, he wilts 50% of the time.  He is not now and will never be the greatest ever.  Period.
