It's not a guarantee but I think a great coach often has a hard time winning with a mediocre QB....but I think a great QB can find ways to win with an average head coach.
Does anybody think that Rex Ryan going 6-10 with Sanchez, a lack of offensive weapons (WR, RB, TE) and no Revis is actually a reasonable accomplishment? If Keller, Holmes and Revis were all healthy for the year I can guarantee AT LEAST 8 wins, probably closer to 9 or maybe 10. And with a good or very good QB???
In Peyton's case he's his own OC he handles everything but the Defense and Special teams.. Brady is close to that level as well..
