The final survey question of NFL Nation Confidential asks -- with the two-minute warning and the Super Bowl is on the line, whom do you want at quarterback?

The answer according to the 320 NFL players surveyed by NFL Nation reporters is New England quarterback Tom Brady, who received 128 votes (40) percent. Peyton Manning finished second with 86 votes, followed by Aaron Rodgers (32), Drew Brees (21) Ben Roethlisberger (20) and Eli Manning (9).

Brady deserves the honor. In his 14th season out of Michigan, Brady has 31 fourth-quarter comebacks to his credit. But Manning is the NFL all-time leader with 40.

San Diego quarterback Philip Rivers is further down the list with 17 fourth-quarter comebacks.

Staying true to the poll, the 10 San Diego players surveyed gave Brady the nod with four votes, followed by three for Manning, two for Brees and one for Rodgers.
