Looking up game winning drives, Rodgers is very far down the list.
He's tied with Luck and he's been in the league for 7 more years
This is the list of guys who have had more game winning drives than him :
He's better than all those guys yet not as clutch?
I didn't mention Brady, Brees, and Peyton Manning because he's not better than those guys.
Simply counting the number of game winning drives is not a good way to measure clutch-ness. In order to have a game winning drive, the game needs to be close in the 4th quarter. Rodgers has a better win rate than almost everyone on that list, so its not like he is choking in close games... he is winning before the 4th quarter.
Dalton doesnt have more game winning drives because hes more clutch, he has them because the bengals are a shitshow every year and end up playing a lot of close games. FFS Jay Cutler had 10 more game winning drives than Rodgers in roughly the same amount of time, and anybody who actually watched Cutler knows he was one of the most laughably non-clutch QBs of the past decade.
