I think that's what it is right there. I've never seen a QB with as much knowledge as him; he just isn't clutch. Simple as that.
Anyone remember in the Super Bowl or some playoff game (pretty sure it was the Super Bowl he won), he got injured late in the game. It wasn't super serious or anything but he went to the sidelines and, like, pointed at Sorgi while he was warming up with kind of a "you might need to go in there and help us out soon" look. Then Manning nutted up and went out there and won the game.
Did this actually happen or am I making this shit up?
Anyway, I always felt like that pretty much showed that Peyton's not clutch and he knows it. He had the minor injury, made a spectacle of how he might not be 100% or good enough to finish the game, then goes out there once the pressure's off him to win the game..
