How much of a QBs development is dependent on team/coaching?

I have to kind of wonder about this. We've seen the explosion of young rookie QBs like RG3, Luck, Newton, and to some extent Dalton and Wilson. We've also seen some good QBs just flat out suck (Locker and Gabbert come to mind immediately). And then there is guys like David Carr, Joey Harrington, JaMarcus Russell, Brady Quinn just absolutely blow. And I got to wonder, is it just because the QB is good or is it because the coaching is good? Is it the team? Or is it the player?

Put Phillip Rivers on New York and how good would he be? If you put Eli Manning on San Diego, what would happen? If Carr ended up on Detroit instead of Houston? Or Harrington in Washington? Would it have mattered at all?
