VY made his mark on a TERRIBLE team, expected to finish dead last in the AFC, and took them to within one game of the playoffs in his rookie season. According to the experts he wasn't even supposed to contribute to an NFL team at least 2 or 3 years down the line. Kerry Collins lead a team to the Super Bowl, he started the season 0-3, and if he stayed at the helm do the Titans even come close to where they finished in '06? Please. VY had EVERYTHING to do with that turnaround.
He had something to do with it no doubt, but it's not as much as you think. You sound like all these saints fans saying "since RB got here we've been winning, he's had a tremendous effect on our team.." when in fact it's mainly b/c they got a legitimate starting QB & a pro bowl RB back in the fold.

You guys had alot of luck last year (2nd jags game, giants game to name a few) & you've done really nothing to help out your main playmaker. To top that off, your schedule is one of the toughest in the league. If i were you i wouldn't bank on VY having that same effect leading you guys to the playoffs next year.
