Did manning have a great year, yes. Did they lose because of manning, no. Did they lose because manning was incapable of winning the game in the end - yes.
This is like when we over reacted and drafted mike nugent because we thought our only issue was doug brien.
Strike while the wounds are fresh and hose elway in a deal.
Manning didn't give up 3 long TD passes to the Ravens. They lost because they let the Ravens WRs get behind their secondary again, and again, and again. They scored 35 points, that should have easily been enough to win a home playoff game.
