Clutch… ice in the veins… relentless…  These are phrases often used to describe NFL quarterbacks who perform best under pressure.  Regular season glory is good; just ask Dan Marino.  But if you ever want to truly be considered an elite NFL quarterback you have to perform when it counts the most and that’s in the postseason.  This is a list of guys who got it done in January.  Here are the Top 5 NFL Playoff quarterbacks.   5.  Kurt Warner – St. Louis Rams/Arizona Cardinals:  In his 11 year NFL career Warner made the postseason five times and compiled a 9-4 record.  That’s a .692 winning percentage.  Warner led his teams to three Super Bowl appearances; twice with the Rams and once with the Cardinals.  Although the Rams had appeared in a Super Bowl when they were in Los Angeles, the city of St. Louis had never had a team in the Super Bowl (Cardinals or Rams).  In 1999, Warner went 3-0 in his first playoff run and captured the Lombardi and a Super Bowl MVP.  Two seasons later Warner would have his team back in the big game and leading late.  But on that day, the legend of Tom Brady was [...]

  • I think the small child pictured with the Mohawk wrote this article, which is why we've been fed this last 10 years crap while being told it's all time. How can we have a list of best "Playoff QB's" (Playoffs meaning all games post-season, Superbowls included) with no Terry Bradshaw (4 Superbowl wins, 0 losses), Joe Montana (4 Superbowl wins, 0 losses), or Troy Aikman (3 Superbowl wins, 0 loses)? What about Otto Graham (played 10 seasons, went to 10 NFL Championships - 3-7 in finals) actually he was before the merger so we won't count him either.

    None of the three QB's I've mentioned are linked to any type of cheating or a videotaping scandal, which by the way, is still going on today (say goodbye to Brady, you have to earn a list like this, not steal it). You can excuse Dan Marino & Peyton Manning as well, the list stated great playoff QB's. not great regular season QB's, both are great QB's, but not all time playoff QB's so later fellas...
    Add Ben Roethlisberger to the list since he's won 2 Superbowls (lost 1), one of those wins coming against your Kurt Warner, I guess it's goodbye Kurt... You got John Elway correct, though many people may say that Brett Favre deserves to be in that spot, but I'll name an honorable mention who could make the list real soon. Eli Manning. Pay attention to what he does next week against the 49ers and beyond... Eli might be the better Manning brother as far as playoffs are concerned...

    Seriously, I hate these lists because they're never accurate... I'm positive someone will find players they feel are better then my choices, and as wrong as they'll be, in their mind they'll be right... The thing is, all I ask is that you know your history before you post articles labeling someone the greatest ever at something... This kid, I mean writer, obviously don't...

    I am sorry for writing a mean response to the columnist, I hate when people do that. This one just really bugged me...

  • Well, I guess you didn't actually READ the article then. Terry Bradshaw is #3, and Joe Montana is #1 on the list in the article. I think the small child pictured wrote your response actually.

    People who can't READ really bug me!

The Peyton Manning Sweepstakes

With the Indianapolis Colts “winning” the 1st pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, it seems that they are poised to select Andrew Luck as they should.  Luck has been described as the best QB prospect since perhaps their current QB, Peyton Manning.  Peyton, who missed the entire 2011 season with a neck injury, is hoping to successfully recover, as he will be ready to play next year. ...

This day in Broncos history … The Drive

While Broncos fans nationwide try to come up with the best name for the Broncos’ most recent playoff win — The Throw?

Does this make sense?

By Jim Donaldson If it weren't all about television -- which, of course, it is -- wouldn't it make more sense for the Patriots and Broncos, playing in New England in mid-January, to kick off on Saturday afternoon, and have the Saints and 49ers play at night in San Francisco? It will be -- not surprisingly -- colder at night in Foxboro than in the afternoon. ...
