That said, do we overrate how clutch Ben is?

NOD was GREAT in his SB compared to Ben in his first one.
Had our Seattle been a great team like that Cowboys team we would have gotten smoked.
Were it not for a record run by Willie and the best pass of the day by ARE, we lose EASY.
He was young so he gets a pass.
But can we give him that win to make a case FOR him as being clutch. No, not by a longshot.
You cant say he is clutch because he got 2 rings.
Ben was clutch in one of three SBs. VERY CLUTCH for one drive.
But outside of ONE DRIVE he was outplayed by the opposing QB in all three SBs. One can make the case that Warner was better throughout. Ben just had the ball last with time.
With recent letdowns I no longer consider Ben to be as clutch as I once did.
How many of you were SURE he was gonna get it done against the Packers on the last drive.
I sure was confident.
Ben CAN BE clutch, but I dont expect it, like I used to.
