Where does Alex Smith rank among the most clutch quarterbacks in the NFC West?

While sifting through quarterback statistics, I stumbled upon some interesting numbers regarding how each NFC West signal-caller closed out games in 2011.

At first, we will look at every stat individually and then rank the players in order of the best performers per stat. Then I will provide a final ranking at the end to determine which gunslinger was the best in late-game situations.
