Which Team is a QB Away From Greatness?

I got into a debate with some friends the other day. We started to discuss which QB-needy team had the most talent and truly is a quarterback away from playoff contention. Which team is closest to being a QB away from bottom dweller, to top of the food chain? I will highlight my top 3 play makers (if applicable) on each side of the ball for each team to help with your decision. Instead of one player on the o-line being considered a weapon (i.e. Jake Long), I will include only o-linemen as a whole unit under "offensive weapon" if applicable.

Arizona (8-8) Offensive weapons: Fitzgerald, Doucet, Wells Defensive weapons: Washington, Campbell, Wilson

Cleveland (4-12) Offensive weapons: Hillis, Little, Cribbs Defensive weapons: Jackon, Haden, Sheard

Indy (2-14) Offensive weapons: Wayne, Garcon, Clark Defensive weapons: Freeny, Mathis, Bathea

Jacksonville (5-11) Offensive weapons: Jones-Drew, Thomas, Lewis Defensive weapons: Posluszny, Mincy, Landry

Washington (5-11) Offensive weapons: Gaffney, Davis, Moss Defensive weapons: Fletcher, Hall, Orakpo

Seattle (7-9) Offensive weapons: Lynch, Baldwin Defensive weapons: Brown, Clemons, Hawthorne

Miami (6-10) Offensive weapons: Marshall, Bush, Bess Defensive weapons: Dansby, Davis, Wake

NYJ (8-8) Offensive weapons: Holmes, Keller, Greene Defensive weapons: Pace, Revis, Harris

You might argue Arizona and NYJ aren't in the market for a QB. According to the rumor mill, they are inquiring. So there you have it. I don't think OAK, KC, and BUF will be making a move for a QB this off-season and the rest of the teams listed are most likely going to be looking to upgrade.

Of the teams mentioned, which is a QB away from greatness?

Try to look at it this way, put a healthy Peyton Manning on any of these teams, than who comes out on top?
