The Championship Quarterbacks- Philip Rivers, Tangerine/ Champs Sports Bowl MVP

by

San Diego Chargers backup quarterback Billy Volek smiles in his post-game press conference after the Chargers beat the Indianapolis Colts 28-24 in an NFL divisional playoff football game Sunday, Jan. 13, 2008, in Indianapolis. Volek, filling in for injured starter Philip Rivers, engineered an 8-play, 78-yard drive in the fourth quarter for the winning score.

I couldn’t find any pictures of Philip Rivers in which his head was not disproportionally large, so I decided to go with with this lovely picture of Chargers backup QB, Billy Volek. Rather plain, but what a nice and genuine smile for the QB who ran the drive that eliminated the defending Super Bowl champions. Given that he may have to play sometimes this Sunday, there’s nothing wrong with a picture of him.

Fine. Here’s one of Philip Rivers.

Eh.

A trick picture in the baby blues. (Why, oh why, don’t they go back to that permanently?)

If he actually looked as good as the ESPN cover photo, he’d be the winner of the pageant. But he does not.

I’d have to give it to Brady.

Damnit.
