Bucky's Best: Drew Brees heads NFL's most clutch quarterbacks

Is he clutch?

That's the question I repeatedly asked myself while evaluating quarterbacks during my time as a scout with the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers. For all of the physical attributes needed to thrive at the position, the ability to make plays at critical junctures is what separates the greats from the rest of the pack in the NFL.

When I played, I had the opportunity to watch Jim Kelly, Brett Favre and Rich Gannon dissect defenses in key moments to win games. Whether it was superbly executing a two-minute drill or converting a crucial third down, those guys had the wherewithal to make plays when everyone was looking to them to produce. They all possessed an uncanny ability to deliver in the fourth quarter, when the intensity of the moment forces others to wilt under pressure.

It's important to study a quarterback's play in key spots to see if he possesses the mental fortitude to rise to the occasion. While history certainly plays a role in this evaluation, the NFL is a year-to-year league and recent performance is more important than the career résumé. With that in mind, let's continue my "Bucky's Best" series by ranking the 10 most clutch quarterbacks in the league entering the 2014 season:

Re: Bucky's Best: Drew Brees heads NFL's most clutch quarterbacks

I would have a hard time saying Eli manning isn't as clutch as Drew. Eli is nowhere near as good a Qb as Drew overall , not even close, but the dude is pretty damn clutch. He's average unless he is down late in the 4th but he has led some comebacks.

Eli Manning is one quarterback I'd never bet against or count out...
