As a Dolphin fan that's one of my favorite plays of all time. I still remember watching that on TV. Thank god for youtube bringing it back.

Anyway, can't really argue with the list. All of the QBs listed are pretty clutch. Personal preference could move the order around some, but it looks about right.

I watched the Marino clip, and it doesn't really seem like he attempted to fake a spike. Am I missing something here?

Awesome. I remember that very well. youtube rocks.

Two interesting things to note about that video:

1. Most of the Dolphins didn't look like they knew what Marino was going to do. Half of the people on the field just stood up instead of playing.

2. The free safety tried to weasel out of the TD by waiving his arms in an "incomplete" manner. I guess when you get burned like that you just try anything.

:-D

As a side note, I definitely have some problems with that SI "clutch" list. I would move one guy up quite a bit, move one guy down quite a bit, and most likely need to find someone to remove because to me it seems like they definitely forgot one guy bigtime.
