I don't actually believe in the concept of "clutch" all that much, but:

On the final drive, the player manning the QB position got the ball back with 102 seconds left, down 4. He marched his team 65 yards and was 6-11 for 53 yards and threw in a 12-yard rush for good measure. Did you see that dime on 4th and goal from the 7 with zeros on the clock? Like, did you see it?

The skillsets are similar, but slightly different, imo. Obviously you want a fast guy back there, no matter what. The primary difference, in my mind: on kickoffs,  you're looking for vision (being able to pick your lane), whereas on punts, you're looking for shiftiness (the ability to make the first guy miss).

Basically, I got tired of typing the tables.

But really: Some records count pre-1905 games; the source I used (Sports Reference, linked above) did not. I’m assuming it has something to do with Pitt’s identity change from Western University of Pennsylvania?
