The NFL has seen its share of great quarterback-wide receiver tandems. The pairing of Joe Montana and Jerry Rice comes to mind, as does the legacy of the Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin connection. But who are the best QB-receiver tandems today?
It's fairly obvious that the duo would have a little bit of history together, which (in my mind) disqualifies second-year quarterback Cam Newton and Steve Smith. That also rules out anything with Peyton Manning, who will spend his 14th NFL season with a new team in Denver (although, I'd listen to an argument for Manning and his original third-down pest, Brandon Stokley).
Also, we'd have to limit this to players with rapport at the professional level. We send apologies to Andrew Luck and Coby Fleener of the Indianapolis Colts in advance.
Great tandems obviously start with great players, and that means great quarterbacks. It's only natural that every elite signal-caller would have a go-to player on his team. Starting with the great quarterbacks of the game, like New England's Tom Brady and Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, makes as much sense as any.
I'll give you my best quarterback-wideout tandems in the NFL today in my latest video. Check out my take above, and leave your own below in the comments. Thanks for watching.
