Add in no run game, a battered offensive line last year and I'm personally pretty positive that even with Peyton Manning or Tom Brady we only win maybe one, two more games last year.
I don't think we would ever see Manning or Brady moping out looking like Eeyore with a cloud following them like we did with Orton last year. I'm fairly confident we would see those guys with a fire each game, regardless of the record or dischord surrounding the team.
You can be heroic even in defeat. That is something KO wasn't. He was part of the problem.
