SEEN AND UNSEEN.

In the buildup to the Divisional Playoffs, sports pundits freshwater and saltwater contemplate elite playoff quarterbacks.
[Packer quarterback Aaron Rodgers] owns the best career playoff passer rating (105.4) in NFL history, and his post-season winning percentage as a starter (.714) is better than [49er Joe] Montana (.696) and compares favorably to [Patriot Tom] Brady (.727) and [Giant] Eli Manning (.727).

“He’s a big-time preparation player as far as what he puts into each game, and that won’t change this week,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “He’ll be clutch for us like he always is.”
In the modern era, a team has to win at least two playoff games to reach the Super Bowl, which is a third win. But you have to look into the league's history to find higher winning percentages for quarterbacks.  Regular readers will know one.  The saltwater pundits identified another.
