No doubt Manning is a huge reason for Fox's Denver success....few if any coaches win many games with bad QB's, but he's also the same guy who has gone to a SB with Delhomme, and won a playoff game with Tebow....nobody is saying he's Tom Landry or Vince Lombardi, but he's also not Mac Speedie or Steve Spurrier either.
