Over the years, the NFL has evolved from the "pound-the-rock" approach to the pass-happy league of today. Very rarely do you see teams run and pass at a 50-50 clip. Legendary San Francisco 49ers head coach Bill Walsh and his West Coast offense was a major influence in the transition from the conservative run approach towards a passing league.

His theory of substituting short passes for running plays and utilizing the intermediate routes to open up the deep ball revolutionized the game. The better the quarterback and wide receivers are, the better you can execute this offense.

There are a ton of good quarterbacks and wide receivers out there. But which of these quarterbacks have a talented, productive receiver and which of these wideouts have a top-flight quarterback throwing them the ball?

Let's take a look at the top five quarterback/wide receiver tandems in the league today.
