    John Elway is the definition of Clutch.

    He could take the entire team, put it on his shoulders, and carry them down the field for the winning touch down.


    Sorry, had to do it... Give a little shout out to ole John.


    Cutler though has come through for us in some clutch situations, Buffalo comes to mind. First game of the season, 5th of his career? He takes the team, drives them down the field and sets up Elam for a winning field goal, watching that drive still gives me the shivers. "Boom! And that's what that's all about!"

    Making a single 'clutch' play does not a player make.
    Thats generally true, but you can tell Brandon Marshall is clutch, cause he carries so much passion, he always wants to make a play when the game is on the line.

    Some of the other guys mentioned in this thread are more clutch plays, than clutch players.

    Mckinley and Winborn made clutch plays

    Marshall and Elam are clutch players

    Your formula is a good one, but in my mind a clutch player is one that has done it for several years and can be counted on to continue doing what it is they do.

    Although some of our rookies had great seasons, they wouldn't be considered "clutch" until they keep doing it year after year.

    Rome wasn't built in a day.

    I'm pretty sure that was Alvin McKinley. (I follow him closely b/c he's from Mississippi State)

    EDIT: sorry, just noticed it was already posted

    Looking back at the replay you are right -CP to you.

    I like Winborn because his motor is always running. He seems to never give up on the play until the whistle blows. We need more defensive players like that.

    I like Scheff in the clutch. I hope he can stay healthy all season next year and if he does, watch out!

    I'm confident when it really comes down to it and the game is make or break, Cutler, Scheffler, and Marshall can get it done. But on defense we need someone like Dumervil or Thomas to break through and make plays when it counts.

    Jay is Clutch for sure. He drove us down the field for game winning drives. Give him 5 seconds from the o line like Brady has and he would cut up a defense!

    Clutch = Jason Elam

    Although his distance has become an issue the past couple of years.

    "3rd down" clutch is actually different from "end of game" clutch, but still important.
