NFL's 5 Worst Receiving Tandems

Having a ood wide receiver tandem is one of the most underrated ideas in football.  Teams who win have two good receivers. Or at least one Pro-Bowl receiver and an average receiver playing across.

Does having a good tandem make you a winner? No, of course not.  The Detroit Lions have Calvin Johnson and Nate Burleson, but quarterback Matthew Stafford hasn't been able to stay healthy.

The Cowboys have Miles Austin and Dez Bryant, but they had coaching and motivation issues last season.

But when the Panthers were at their best, they had Steve Smith and Muhsin Muhammad. Peyton Manning had Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne.

In today's league, the Eagles have DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin; Packers have Greg Jennings and Donald Driver; Atlanta has Roddy White and Julio Jones.

This list will highlight (if you can call it that) the five worst receiving tandems in the NFL, and not surprisingly, the teams aren't that good either.
