I know what you're talking about. Why is Peyton Manning great during the regular season but his performance diminishes in the playoffs? On the other hand, why is Eli decent during the regular season, but his performance greatly improves during the post season. Presure impacts everyone in different ways. I see it every day, in every walk of life. Call this phenominon what you will.
Which is not to say the Redlegs recent showing is due to an inability to handle pressure. If anything, they're responding to the Selig post season play-in by being too lackadaisical..
