Ellenberg to Prove Aaron Rodgers is the Superior QB

Jordan Ellenberg crunched the numbers, and he knows the answer.  The author of "How Not to Be Wrong" and UW-Madison Mathematics Professor was featured on NBC Sports to prove who was superior:  Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady.  Jordan demonstrated how he came to his conclusion that Aaron Rodgers was in fact the better QB.
