The NFL is well and truly a passing league and the quarterback position is by far the most important position in the league.
But no QB can perform to the best of their ability without an awesome wideout by their side. In American football and the NFL, it's teams that win championships and not individual players.
Yes players can rise above others and contribute more to a team's ability to win. But unlike basketball, one player cannot simply transform an organization.
That's why every QB needs a wideout, and Monday was a funny day with regard to the fact that Cincinnati Bengals offensive coach Hue Jackson decided to label his QB-WR combination - Andy Dalton and AJ Green - as the best in the league.
Now that's quite some statement considering they've never won a playoff game together despite three attempts and Dalton's average passing stats. Therefore, let's move on and look at three combinations that are far better than them.
Peyton Manning and DeMaryius Thomas
Even with just two years under their belt, this Denver Broncos quarterback and wideout combination is arguably the best in the NFL.
Manning has been helped on his way to dominating with the Broncos in the two seasons because of an array of weapons at his disposal - with Thomas been the most integral part of Peyton's receiving corp.
Even though the Broncos suffered a heavy defeat in the Super Bowl in February, Thomas showed his quality.
Catching the most amount of balls in a Super Bowl is just the tip of the iceberg for Thomas. It wouldn't be surprising if these guys pick up a ring at the end of the 2014 NFL season together.
Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson
Detroit Lions combination of Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson is one for the ages, and arguably the best quarterback and wideout tandem ever in Detroit. Stafford threw for over 5,000 yards only a few seasons ago, and Johnson has made over 1,500 yards receiving for the past two seasons.
Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall
Jay Cutler gets his fair share of criticism, but the things he can do include massing a lot of yards and plenty of touchdowns. He may not lead his team to enough wins, and throws too many interceptions, but boy this guy can find a groove with his receivers.
Cutler's favorite target these days is Brandon Marshall. The former Denver Broncos receiver has been ripping up the NFL in recent years thanks to awesome passing from Cutler.
Marshall has averaged more than 1,200 yards ever year for the past three seasons, and expect that only to continue to rise in the coming seasons.
