Montana to Rice, Aikman to Irvin, Manning to Harrison—NFL history is full of amazing quarterback-wide receiver duos.
I had a lot of fun doing research for this article. There were so many options at my disposal, so there will be some tandems left out. Accordingly, some of you may not agree with my overall rankings.
That said, you have to look at a couple different variables when putting together a list like this. First, you look at the era each tandem played in. Just because a duo performed great in the 1950s doesn't mean that they shouldn't be on the list.
Additionally, there are a couple of tandems that are currently playing who deserve mention.
Also, consider the team's overall success. It isn't just a stat game when drawing a conclusion about the best tandems in NFL history—winning championships still means something.
So, without further ado, I present to you my list of the 50 best quarterback-wide receiver tandems in NFL history.
