Is Matty Ice a choker too?
How about the venerated Tom Brady? On BSPN this morning they said he is 7-7 in his last 14 playoff games. Yesterday HE screwed up with clock management at the end of the 1st half. HE didnt put up any points in the 2nd half. HE threw picks.
Is Tom CryBrady a choker too?
Or, do we put these losses on the teams?
Oh, and BTW, what about Peyton Manning? 9-11 in the post season. Threw a pick to lose the game in OT against the Ravens.
Peyton a choker too?
The answer is certainly yes, but on this message board, no one is going to look at this objectively.
But the people here on this board are going to say:
Brady didn't choke because he's got SB rings.
Manning didn't choke because he's got SB rings.
Ryan "did"choke because he's got one playoff victory and no rings.
Brady gets rattled. The problem is, is that it doesn't happen very often. It only seems to happen as of late, in big playoff games. He didn't play well against the Ravens last year in the playoffs and he won because of a dropped pass. Most of the time Brady stands back there to look at the entire field without any pressure at all.
Manning couldn't throw the ball more than 10 yards in the last playoff game. Then he scrambles with no pressure on him, throws across his body for a pick.
Ryan fumbling the ball? Not sure what that was? How about second guessing him on throwing the ball to Roddy White, when he had the more favorable match up with Gonzales on the outside.
Take Romo out of the equation. These guys simply did not play well and they should be criticized.
