Is Philip Rivers a Genius? Is Eli Manning?

I saw this picture it got me to thinking… is Philip Rivers a genius? I mean everybody else who does math on mirrors or windows is, right? Hollywood suggests that’s the case.

I’ve never seen a photo of Eli Manning drawing math on a window or mirror, so that settles it, right? Philip Rivers is a genius and Eli Manning isn’t. That’s the irony of the Rivers math photo, even though it’s 5 years old, I just saw it on this BFTB post about Rivers and Manning, because now that ELIte is going to another NFC Championship game, the comparisons are popping up again. I’m not gonna get into it here. They’re both very good quarterbacks and this thing has been debated to death, so I will leave you with this. I’m paraphrasing here, but this is what Ben Higgins on XTRA1360 said yesterday on my drive home, “The question you have to ask yourself is this: How many Super Bowl titles would Eli Manning have if he was with the Chargers instead of the Giants? If you come up with any answer other than ZERO… you’re an idiot.
