I use it as a descriptive term for lackluster and average.

pedestrian - Lacking inspiration or excitement; dull

I know you were not trying to compare QBs. However, just for fun of explaining the pedestrian tag as defined above:

Peyton Manning = 38 fourth quarter comebacks, 49 game-winning drives (in 244 RS starts)

Matt Schaub = 9 fourth quarter comebacks, 12 game-winning drives (in 82 RS starts)

And, for fun...

TJ Yates = 1 fourth quarter comeback, 2 game-winning drives (in 5 RS starts)
