When the NFL Playoffs are in gear there are some quarterbacks, no matter how good, who seem to misfire.

Great in the regular season...can't get it done in the playoffs.

You've probably heard that about more than one NFL team, and in particular, about some of their quarterbacks.

It's infuriating to fans. Watching guys who can stack wins higher than IHOPs all-you-can-eat pancakes in the regular season, but then turn into a glob of sticky batter when they hit postseason play. And some of these quarterbacks are not just good...they're great.

There's no rhyme or reason to it either. Most of the time these signal-callers are playing with the same personnel, the same coaches, and at times even against some of the same opponents from the regular season. But the ball just seems to take funny hops when January hits.

And while it's not always their fault, that's part of the hazard of being an NFL quarterback – too much praise when you win, and too much blame when you lose.

Of course, there are a lot of quarterbacks who struggle in the postseason, but here are ten of them who put up All-Pro numbers, but just seem to...well...choke when it's a win-or-go-home proposition.

Here are the best-worst postseason NFL quarterbacks we could find. (Five or more playoff appearances)
