Default Re: Big Ben Comebacks

He had fourth quarter comebacks against Philly, Cincy, and NYG this year. He should have had one against Dallas but Antonio Brown coughed it up and he had to do it again and failed. People think he's unclutch because he failed a few times this year, but he was forced into too many of those situations. He still led 3 fourth quarter comebacks, and a fourth that we choked away, and that's in only 12 games he played. You can't be expected to do it every time, and 3 or 4 in 3/4 a season should be more than enough to warrant the "clutch" moniker.

Expecting him to go 6 for 6 in those situations is ridiculous, 3 for 6 is fine. The fact that he threw picks in the other 3 is troublesome, but 2 of those came after his injury and considering this whole season was a clusterfuck by everyone on this team I'm not writing him off. I bet about 28 quarterbacks in the NFL would have been successful 2 or less times out of those 6, and of the remaining QB's I doubt any would have done better than 4.
