Looking back at Brett Favre's career, it's impossible to deny that he's been a clutch player.
But Aaron Rodgers, still relatively early in his career, is approaching that territory...or will be soon.
"It all comes down to how you want to define 'clutch,'" said Rob Reischel, author of the book Aaron Rodgers" Leader of the Pack and Packer Plus reporter.
If you're going to look strictly at late-game heroics, there's no doubt Favre has the edge over Rodgers.
By comparison Rodgers has a mere six career game-winning drives (ranking 165th all time) and only three comeback victories (ranking 200th).
Reischel doesn't mince words when it comes comparing Favre and Rodgers with the clock winding down: "Right now, Rodgers doesn't even hold a candle to Favre at the end of games."
It's not Reischel's opinion that Rodgers is more clutch than Favre. Rather, his insight was sought to provide a glimpse into the career of Rodgers, a subject he's followed closely as a journalist.
The purpose of this article is to define "clutch" differently, look at it in a new light and see how Rodgers is on his way to surpassing Favre in terms of "clutchness."
