What I take away from this stat mainly is that the reason Ryan is so far ahead of Rodgers in 4th qtr comebacks is that his team (or defense) has let him down more times than not while Rodgers has had the luxury of a more complete team and defense throughout this career. Ryan has been in a situation more often where he HAS to win it for his team

True but he also has a bad record when down multiple scores. Rodgers is one of the worst QBs to come back in general per opportunity.

Shows how the media can skew how people see certain players. Everyone talks about all of his hail Marys and hightlight plays and then think he's great at a comeback.

Well it's a very well documented fact that does get brought up in the broadcasts when his team is down. He is something like 1-37 when entering the 4th quarter with a deficit against winning teams. Which is actually incredibly un-clutch.

They hype Rodgers no doubt. Ice can hold his own with top tier QBs.

Doesn't Ryan have one of, if not the highest, Super Bowl QB rating of anybody in the league? Maybe the media should analyze who is good enough to hang with Ice instead of the other way around.

Not sure about SB, but for playoff Ryan is #3 in passer rating behind Bart Starr(1st) and Kurt Warner(2nd) and right ahead of Brees(4th) and Rodgers(5th).  On the other hand Brady is 14th behind Mark Sanchez(10th) and Tony Romo(12th).  Guess you don't have to play that well to win when you have a HOF coach and a good/great defense most season.

But professional analysts like Skip and Cowherd say he choked in SB.

Best postseason stats for a QB in the league but no one wants to talk about it.

Writers. Media. Not analyst.

They’re more just spokespersons. Bystanders. Observers(I would hesitate to even use that word really). They don’t really watch games, just try to say random crap even if it’s completely false. Not the nfl, but Idek why cowherd talks about the NBA at all, it’s clear he knows nothing about it.

Dayum good stuff

Ryan is also one of a few QB that has higher QB Rating in the playoff than regular season, which is how I think we define as being clutch, or should be anyway.  Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Brady, P. Manning, Big Ben, T. Romo, Luck, Rivers, and so on... all have lower QB Rating during the playoff than regular season.  Some by 10 points or more.  Only Ryan, Brees, Warner, Montana and Starr have higher QB Rating in the playoff than regular season.  I guess you can throw Flacco in there too, but both his regular season and playoff QB Rating are so low compared to the rest that it's not really worth mentioning.  I saw a few people on this board compared Rivers to Ryan as being counterpart.  Well Ryan increased his QB Rating by 5 pts during the playoff while Rivers dropped his by 11 pts.  Then there is the asinine comparison of Ryan to A. Dalton who wet the bed during the playoff by dropping his QB Rating by 30+ pts and never got above 70 QB Rating in any playoff game.  Dalton has 1 TD and 6 int and Ryan has 20 TD and 7 int in the playoff is all you need to know.  It is unbelievable how good Ryan has been for this team, but because the rest of the team is not up to part he shares the burden of the lack of success.

Only the idiot Colin Cowherd says this. I’m a Dalton fan, but he’s no where near Matt’s level.
