Top 10 Most Clutch NFL Quarterbacks of All Time

The Top Ten
Tom Brady Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr., is an American football quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League. Brady is known for being the only quarterback in history to win 6 Super Bowls, and is often considered one of the best quarterbacks of all time. Brady is also frequently ...read more.

17 conference titles, 13 AFC championship games, 9 Superbowl appearances, 6 rings. Undisputed greatest of all time and it is not close at all. And what makes him that is how special he is in the clutch.

He has a winning record when losing in the fourth... only qb EVER to do that and holds the 2 biggest 4th quarter comebacks in super bowl history. No one else has come back from more than 7 down, but he came back from 10 and 19 in the fourth in 2 Super Bowls and the one in sb 49 was against the best defense in the league and one of the best pass rushes and the best secondary

When we look back... We will appreciate brady event more! 5 superbowls and had his team winning in everyone one in the last few minutes of the 4th. Brady drove the undefeated patriots on a touchdown drive in 2007 superbowl to take a 4 point lead with 2 minutes left! Assanti and Wes both dropped a chance for another title. Brady is an all time clutch quarterback.

How did he win two super bowls, a Manning-Brady bowl, and many other clutch games. Three words: Two Minute Drills.

Joe Montana Joseph Clifford "Joe" Montana, Jr., nicknamed Joe Cool and The Comeback Kid, is a retired American football quarterback.

Nothing compares what Montana did, he played like a magician when they were trailing in the fourth quarter. Football is not like today, back in the 80s the game had tremoundous hits, playing in 80s football will be impossible for today's players

This list was on the NFL network and all these players are almost in the same order except bart starr is way higher... Joe Montana will always be #1

Who's better than joe cool? nobody on this list. The only one could be otto graham 10 titles that clutch. Brady's team won by kicks.

He helped the 49ers win super bowl after super bowl

John Elway John Albert Elway Jr. is a former American football quarterback and current executive vice president of football operations and general manager of the Denver Broncos of the National Football League.

These guys are only good not clutch. John is the only real clutch quarterbacks.

Im sorry but last time I checked John Elway held the record for 4th quarter/OT comeback victories. I'm pretty sure that absolutely DEFINES clutch. ELWAY=CLUTCH

Elway never had a team until late in his career he is the best clutch qb and perhaps the best overall

Peyton Manning Peyton Williams Manning is a former American football quarterback who played 18 seasons in the National Football League for the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos.

Very underrated. Did you see some of the comebacks he did in 2008.

Him, Marvin Harrison, & Reggie Wayne dominate together.

Best QB of all time easily

Johnny Unitas John Constantine Unitas, nicknamed "Johnny U", or "The Golden Arm", was an American professional football player from the 1950s through the 1970s.

Johnny U. Was my boyhood idol. In the ankle deep mud, blinding snows and white outs the COLTS passing and running games are legend. Scratch a Raven and you'll find the Baltimore soul of a COLT inside. You affirmed my faith in Sports History from back in the day of black and white, blue and white collar football in nature's elements. Johhny Unitas, my hero, the late and fantastically great in those hightops. RIP.

He's the Jerry West of football and he is very underrated he should be number one

too many young people voting and they don't remember the way it used to be without microphones and all of the video, etc.

Troy Aikman Troy Kenneth Aikman is a former American football quarterback who played for the Dallas Cowboys in the National Football League.

There are only 3 other QBs on this list that have 3 super bowls, or more than Troy Aikman. He had a great, great, running back, that took a lot of the focus off the passing game, thus he could have had a lot better stats. He is a 1st ballot hall of famer. He deserves to be in the top ten. Bernie Kosar on the list? What has he won in the NFL. Granted he won some big games. But none bigger than conference championships of super bowls. What about Brett Favre he was always Clutch.

Terry Bradshaw

Wasn't great all the time... But was great when he needed to be, that's what clutch means!

Bart Starr

ICE BOWL! He's number two behind Joe Montana.

Brett Favre Brett Lorenzo Favre is a former American football quarterback who spent the majority of his career with the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.

Please do I need to explain?

brett farves just pure awesomeness and the fact that he can carry the vikings to the playoffs is a great accomplishment besides the fact of him quitting a bunch of times he's awesome.

Roger Staubach Roger Thomas Staubach, nicknamed Captain America and Captain Comeback, is a former American football quarterback in the National Football League.
The Contenders
Eli Manning Elisha Nelson "Eli" Manning is a former American football quarterback who played his entire career for the New York Giants of the National Football League. He is the younger brother of former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning.

Eli Manning's Giants have often been underdogs in the postseason and were projected to a 4-7 record or perhaps 5-6 in Eli's 11 games. Instead, Eli Manning's Giants went 8-3 and two of those playoff victories were against arguably the greatest qb ever (In the Postseason, in the super bowl.) Tom brady even laughed at a prediction that the Giants would win and that the Patriots offense would ONLY score 17, and look what happened. Eli 17, Brady 14. Eli's play to David Tyree was the most important play in NFL history, when 3 people were trying to sack Eli on 3rd down and then he threw it to David Tyree for the helmet catch. That's what I call clutch, baby.

His 39 GWDs and 30 4QCB are the most of any QB since his 1st start. He is the only QB with 2 4QCB in a single postseason. He holds the NFL record for GWDs in a single postseason (3 in 2008) and the NFL record for most 4th quarter TDs (15 in 2011). He and Peyton are the only QBs to have 6 or more GWDs in a season 3 times. His career splits when trailing with < 2 min. to go Comp. % 58.25 QBR 86.4 are better than: Brady, Peyton, Brees, Rodgers, Big Ben, Rivers, Ryan, Newton, Wilson, Favre, and Warner. In those situations his TD to Int. ratio is better that all of them with the exception of Brady and Wilson.

He beat the annointed greatest team in football history in the last moments in the superbowl, resulting in one of the greatest if not the greatest upset in Super Bowl history. I that's not clutch then what is?

He's not a good QB and I don't like him but man is he clutch! Leading the lowly Giants over The Patriots in 2 Super Bowls! You at least have to give him credit for that.

Ken Stabler Kenneth Michael "Ken" Stabler, nicknamed "Snake," was an American football quarterback in the National Football League for the Oakland Raiders, Houston Oilers and New Orleans Saints.

The Snake deserves top 5 easily, look up these plays: The Sea of Hands, The Ghost to the Post, and The Holy Roller and tell me that's not clutch! Let's not forget Super Bowl XI.

Please people. Look at numbers and consider era. By the way roger was pretty good to

Kurt Warner Kurtis Eugene "Kurt" Warner is a former American football quarterback, a current part-time TV football analyst, and a philanthropist.

First ever playoff game, threw five touchdowns. 3rd and four, down 6-5 throws a touchdown pass to Ricky Proehl, threw the iconic pass to Isaac Bruce in Super Bowl 34. Two years later in a 14-2 season, Kurt Warner and the packers beat the Packers 45-17, then beat the Eagles 29-24. In Super Bowl 36, Warner lead a drive caped off with a rushing touchdown by himself to make the Patriots lead to just seven. With ninety seconds left, Kurt Warner delivered a throw to Ricky Proehl that would go for twenty-six yards and a touchdown. They wouldn't have gone to OT if it wasn't for Brady, but I have more evidence to say why I think he is the clutchest over even Brady. After being injured in 2003, the Rams lost to the Panthers. He would return to the playoffs in 2008, finally a full starter again, for the Cardinals. Kurt Warner would go 9-7 in the regular season, and would win 30-24 vs the Falcons, 33-13 vs the Panthers, 32-25 vs the Eagles, down in the wire in the fourth quarter down 24-25, they ...more

Aaron Rodgers Aaron Charles Rodgers is an American football quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.

4th and 8, final chance in week 17, delivers a deep touchdown to save the season, hail mary vs lions, two straight hail mary's vs Cardinals in divisional round in 2015, throw to sideline in divisional round 2017, comeback after comeback, most accurate and clutch quarterback of all time.

Bernie Kosar
