Here’s some wild math to measure which QBs are the best at coming from behind

Some (*cough* Bill Simmons *cough*) have theorized that Peyton was a choker for most of his career but became clutch somewhere around the Super Bowl victory in 2006. The theory is right, but the timing is wrong — the year Peyton Manning became clutch was 2002. Looking at the above table, it can be seen that Peyton indeed had some rough years early in his career (including a 1-for-19 start). Since 2002, Peyton has performed exceptionally well. In fact, Peyton from the last 8 seasons would be the top quarterback by far with a 1.74 ACE rating. A close Super Bowl could come down to whichever team has the ball last.
