Game managing being seen as a bad thing has always been stupid.
game manager implies you have all the pieces around you to be a successful team, so long as the qb doesn't **** up. a game managers role isn't to win you games, it's to not lose you games.
in a league that glorifies and vilifies quarterbacks, it only makes sense that a game manager is viewed as bad.
