I think you're setting up an impossible standard, if a coach wins with Peyton Manning, it's because he had Peyton Manning. If a coach loses(or rather doesn't win the Super Bowl) with Peyton Manning, he's an idiot.
Super Bowl Winning Quarterbacks in last 10 years;
2009: Cancelled due to lack of interest(Rothelisberger)
2008: Eli Manning
2007: Peyton Manning
2006: Also cancelled due to lack of interest(Rothelisberger)
2003: Brad Johnson
2001: Trent Dilfer
While many of those year's someone other than Tony Dungy's team won the Super Bowl, the overwhelming majority of the ones who did had a Hall of Fame Quarterback.
So just having a hall of fame quarterback isn't enough. Anyone who wins 1 Super Bowl realizes just how difficult it is. Obviously there were certain situations where Dungy may have been out coached, but to say anyone should have won multiple Super Bowls is like saying a baseball player should have had at least 2 hits in a game.
