Who's Responsible for the Sucess?

Last night I was watching the movie "Moneyball" on FX. The Oakland A's are the subject of the movie and the commentators talk about their coach being responsible for the team's recent success, when in reality it was the work of the GM and his staff.

That got me thinking/wondering about who is responsible for the success of our rebuilding period. I have to wonder what Marvin Lewis actually does other than motivate and answer press conference questions. Mike Zimmer is clearly the only one that touches the Defense, and Jay Gruden runs the offense without the defensive minded Lewis.

Is Lewis the one that should be getting credit. Our draft days have gotten increasingly less painful as Mike Brown starts to give up control of the reins. This makes me doubtful that Brown is the mastermind behind the playoff berths the past couple of years.

Does anybody else have thoughts?
