QBs getting it done in fourth quarters

A quick look at NFL quaterbacks with fourth-quarter passer ratings in the 80s or higher through Week 4, minimum 10 attempts:
Fourth-quarter Passing Through Week 4

Comp. Att. Yards TD INT Rating
Eli Manning
20 27 302 3 0 147.5
Kyle Orton
17 23 362 2 0 144.7
Shaun Hill
24 31 259 3 0 133.7

Aaron Rodgers
21 36 380 3 0 122.5
Peyton Manning
19 26 263 1 0 117.9
Jay Cutler
22 28 241 2 1 111.5
Drew Brees
15 20 142 1 0 110.8
Joe Flacco
23 36 333 3 1 110.1
Philip Rivers
27 43 426 3 1 109.3
Tom Brady
31 50 322 3 0 100.6
Brett Favre
22 34 188 2 0 98.7
Ben Roethlisberger
23 29 210 0 0 96.8
Matt Cassel
19 35 193 4 1 96.5
Jason Campbell
25 36 248 2 1 95.6
Trent Edwards
20 35 240 3 1 94.9
Tony Romo
14 30 283 1 0 91.4
Seneca Wallace
32 50 258 1 0 83.6
David Garrard
17 32 222 2 1 83.1
Carson Palmer
23 39 238 2 1 83.1



Not all fourth-quarter numbers are created equally, as Seneca Wallace detractors know, but the guys leading this list have played well late in games when outcomes were on the line. Shaun Hill gets credit for leading two 80-yard touchdown drives to take leads in fourth quarters at Arizona and at Minnesota.

Thanks to ESPN Stats & Information for the chart info.
Here comes the people claiming it doesn't matter because he can't throw hard.

Or that Yards are the most important thing for a QB.

But he sure picks the right half to be amazing in.

ALEX SMITH IS AWESOME FOR A QUARTER IN A SEATTLE GAME 2 YEARS AGO...and is awfull for the rest of his career..yet still wins loyalty...
i wouldnt say "clutch" i would go more towards "taken care of buisness"

HATER!!!! .......... How did you bring Alex Smith into this? U probabaly think Nedney is overrated and that Andy Lee is only good because he gets to punt more often than others!

Enjoy the gradual resurgence towards greatness that Singletary and the team (yes, Alex, included) are giving us, as fans! Or, go away and mimmick Rush Limbaugh somewhere else!



Who are you people, that can still be bitter?
Not on 3rd downs!


Draft McCoy!

Hill is one of the best on third downs and raye didn't give him one pass play on third down against minnesota or else we would have won.......he doesent control the whole game but he doesent put us in a hole. When it counts he is clutch and wins us the game or puts us in position to win......I think he's going to get a lot better as the season progesses. Give it up hill haters!
He is not costing us games, what more can you ask for at this point in time? Clutch?
I have seen nothing to make me want to have to count on him to have to win a game. We are a defense first team, so Hill will usually not have to be the one to win the game. As long as the defense keeps it close, we always have a chance. I think that any of our QB's could win with this defense having their back.

Just ran across this on ESPN, Clutch players don't end up on this list...


Overmatched Players...

It's not a claim it's fact he doesn't throw hard , fast ,accurate etc. He does throw short , into double coverage and sometimes triple coverage so far he's been getting away with it , I hope it lasts
