It is the chicken or the egg argument. A great QB can make an average coach look great. A great coach can make an average QB look great.
This, with an occasional anomaly. Fox/The Golden Calf of Bristol last year being the most recent.

As teeray said, chicken and egg argument.

i.e.: Ravens with Dilfer and Billick, Bucs with Gruden and Brad Johnson...Steelers with Roethlisberger?
With the game changing so much now, a great QB is likely more needed than a great coach, though. As long as that coach is competent.

Yes, they need lines and WRs,but a good QB makes everyone better, including the coach.
Was Jim Caldwell a good coach when the Colts nearly went undefeated? How good is Tomlin without Rothelesberger? Is Coughlin a difference maker when Manning is not on his game? I wonder if Bill Bellichek (sp?) would have ever been more than average if he did not have Brady. He was not great with Bledsoe.
Harbaugh may be the exception to this rule, but he knows to develop the QB you have.
