Got to give it to the guy, he never complained or made excuses.
He just threw the ball to Blair White instead of Austin Collie.
Same thing with Brady and his receivers and running backs. Only exception was we had Corey Dillon for the 1st super bowl win. Manning also had a good running back when he won his. And he also had Marvin Harrison with Reggie Wayne for many years. Let's face it Deion Branch was riding the bench in Seattle and gets traded here and becomes a star. A good quarterback will make all his teammates better
Part of it is also having coaches who know how to use the weapons they have. Welker was doing squat in Miami...with Brady he's a star. And if it wasn't for Brady and the Patriots then Manning would probably have won 3 or 4 super bowls
