Maybe this game will go down in history to solidify Aaron Rodgers' reputation as a clutch player.

He's been a little off this year, and he still has that problem of ignoring uncovered players in favor of looking deep for low probability throws (as he did on third down when Kuhn was wide open over the middle for the first) BUT, credit where it's due.

Dude came from behind in the 4th quarter and brought his team to the win.

Even iced it with a clutch first down to drain the clock.

What Matt Ryan did today was clutch.

What Rodgers did? No. But he gets credit from overcoming that eye injury.

What did he do, throw up a lob pass to a 6-4 receiver that should have been intercepted if the safety could judge depth.

Matty Choke gets no credit from this dumbass until he wins a playoff game. He has an unearned nickname.

You just go ahead and keep on looking for perfect... It will be a very long journey my friend.

This team has been "Snake Bit" this season, today was a remarkable character building victory.

Today's victory is the kind of foundation that season ending un-beaten streaks are built upon.

OH, im not saying anything about. I'm very proud of the way ARodg played today. I just know someone in this thread is going to point it out so I wanted to get it out of the way. Kind of the same thing when someone posts "FIRST!"

And in most games where a QB makes a dramatic fourth quarter comeback, they were in a position to come back in the first place because of mistakes. Who woulda thunk? d'oh!

You're the one who made the goddamn post, and now you're changing your own subject. Sit down.

I'm simply saying what Rodgers did today wasn't all that great. It wouldn't even be a comeback if he didn't throw that bonehead interception.

Ryan led his team well within FG range with no timeouts. So he forced it to his bigplay WR. At least he had the balls to take a chance. With Rodgers you'll just see him running around, waiting to get raped by Bruce Irvin.

I'm not at all saying that Ryan is the better QB. Rodgers is, by far. But taking a lead with 8 minutes left to do so is far from qualifying as a clutch score. Much needed, but not clutch. Clutch is when you simply take the game away. Ryan and Brady did it today. Even Griffin did it today. We've also seen Brett doing it for more than a decade.

Aaron's two only clutch wins came against Chicago on that pass to Jennings and the :58 second drive that led to Crosby beating NYG last year.

His contemporaries voted him the best player in the game. I happen to agree. 4th quarter comeback stats are for those that aspire to that designation.

Eli Manning had 6 game-winning drives last year and has two rings, both against a QB who has 3 rings and is thought of by many to arguably be the best player of all-time.

Oh wait, this thread is about 4th quarter comebacks, which is nowhere near as clutch as a game-winning drive. Sorry.

YOU made a topic and YOU deviated from it when you couldn't back it up. You're not the first, and not the last, but don't undermine everyone's intelligence by lying.


Sunday was Aaron Rodgers FIRST 4th quarter comeback in 3 years, per NBC. I thought he had one in 2010???

To be quite honest, I could care less about 4th Q comebacks. I personally HATE nailbiters. I want us to beat the team we're playing by 35 pts and go into halftime with a 21 pt lead.

Then I want to go into the SB as 14 pt favorites and win by 40 pts. That would be my ideal year. None of this close game bullshit.

Tim Tebow was getting so much credit last year for comebacks but I kept saying, "where was he in the first 3 Qs? Apparently doing nothing."

If we win the rest of the games this year by 20+ pts and Aaron Rodgers doesn't get a single comeback attached to his name, awesome.

I freaking hate the QB position... truly hate it.

Who is elite. 4th Quarter Comebacks. Not clutch. Ramble f*%&ing ramble... on and on.

They are not shit without players around them. Simply put.

The gushing from Aikman yesterday.. I wanted to rip the microphone from his hands and beat him with the damn thing.

What about Jones.. Nelson, Finley catching the damn ball. What about Benson knocking heads all day and forcing the Saints to play the run first. What about the five guys up front that, all but for one rake of the eyes, kept Rodgers clean yesterday. What about the defense stoning the Saints from inside the 5 yard line with 3 cracks at it.

Rodgers didn't win that game yesterday.. tying his name to a comeback is a insult to the rest of the team.

People wonder why I hate the QB position.. this thread brings it to a climax.

The game of football does not revolve around the QB.. it just doesn't.

4th quarter comebacks.. what a bunch of media spun bullshit.

Why do we feel the need to wrap up this beautiful game into a small little undeserving over hyped package as a QB solely?

People like figureheads and a leader to follow, and someone to blame if things go sour and love if things go well. I liken the QB position relative to the rest of the team to the position of President relative to the rest of the government. Very important, most important single position on the team, a lot of power (and in this case, playcalling abilities) over the offense as a whole but ultimately reliant on the performance of those around him. When things go good or at least not terribly bad (Clinton), presidents get most of the credit. When things go sour (Bush II, Obama), presidents get most of the blame.

While Rodgers needs to play better when he IS behind, some of the statistics floated out there seem a lot worse than they actually are when you take into account how insane our offense was in 15 of the 16 games in the regular season last year. That's an entire year when we weren't in a position where we needed to come from behind.

It's funny how some people think by saying Aaron Rodgers doesn't have many 4th quarter comebacks is a dig at Aaron Rodgers. It's just a fact, that is all. A good quarterback shouldn't have to come from behind to win.

I'm with Paulie on the dislike of close games. Cardiac Pack? Fuck that! I want the game sealed in favor of the Packers by halftime!
