I don't think so. Manning didn't call the stupid TO, he didn't allow that horrendous kick return, and he's not responsible for letting the Jets have two 10 minute TD drives. The only things you can even partially blame Manning for is the Colts having to settle for FGs so much, but they probably should have still won even so. I guess you don't really know how much of not using enough time on their last drive was up to him, but it's nitpicky compared to what you can blame on the coaches, D, and ST.
I mean, even the post you responded to just said he wasn't great.
