How good a first playoff game for a 49er QB?

Digging into the boxscores... My source: http://www.pro-football-reference.com/boxscores/

Take a look at the stat lines below and draw your own conclusions. Mine: AS had a first-time playoff performance on par with any of the greats of the 49ers or the current era QB's. Here are the stats:

Montana - 1981 Win. Pass 20-31-304, 2 TD, 1 Int. Rush 3 for -9 yards, 0 TD. 4th Quarter - not a comeback situation.
Young - 1992 Win. Pass 20-30-227, 2 TD, 1 Int. Rush 8 for 73 yards, 0 TD. 4th Quarter - not a comeback situation.
Garcia - 2001 Loss. Pass 22-32-233, 1 TD, 1 Int. Rush 2 for 3 yards, 0 TD. 4th Quarter - failed comeback.
Tom Brady - 2001 Win. Pass 32-52-312, 0 TD, 1 Int. Rush 5 for 16 yards, 0 TD. 4th Quarter - comeback to tie, OT win.
Ben Rothlis - 2004 Win. Pass 17-30-181, 1 TD, 2 Int. Rush 4 for 30 yards, 0TD. 4th Quarter -- comeback to tie, OT win.
Peyton M. - 1999 Loss. Pass 19-42-227, 0 TD, 0 Int. Rush 2 for 22 yards, 1 TD. 4th Quarter - failed comeback.
Alex Smith - 2012 Win. Pass 22-42-299, 3 TD, 0 Int. Rush 1 for 28 yards, 1 TD. 4th Quarter - 2 comebacks in last 4 mins.
Can you get QB rating for them.

He had about the same numbers as P. Manning. But Smith did one better in the tangible department.

Happy for A.Smith! Told people, there's no such thing as "playoffs experience!"
No can do. Not part of the profootballreference.com, and I can't find the box scores for individual playoff games occuring prior to 2001 on NFL.com. If anyone can find a site listing them, I'll look 'em up.

It was his finest hour.



Good for him for telling all the haters (myself included) to kiss his ass.
Capt. Comeback has taught him WELL....

Dayum! I'm not really into numbers. Rather watch the game and judge for myself but that's impressive for a first timer. Thanks
