    Re: NFL Networks Top 10 Receiving Corps

    There was also one the other day for the best QB to WR combo.

    Moss or Cris Carter didn't make that list, but I recall the top 3 being

    #1 Manning to Harrison

    #2 Montana to Rice

    #3 Young to Rice

    I might have 2 & 3 bassakwards

    Really?
    I guess I'll sound like a young guy, but maybe that list should be upside down!
    And, what about when SF had Rice, TO, and Craig?
    Didn't they have a bad mofo TE too?
    Maybe Rice, TO and Taylor?
    Didn't STL always have a pretty good third WR too...

    If you're talking Corps, why not include the 4th and 5th guys too?
    Sometimes I feel like the network doesn't go all the way on some of these things...

    Then again, its pretty hard to compare the careers of today's WRs to the early ones...the game has changed SO much since then.
    Way more emphasis rule wise for the passing game...and scoring in general.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    Re: NFL Networks Top 10 Receiving Corps

    That's cool.
    I was just wondering about the rest of the depth...TEs ect.
    I'm sure I'll see it eventually...they do lots of replays.
    Did they mention Walsh with the Vikes?

    No I don't think so. They did mention that it should be called the Midwest Offense because he started it in Cincinnati.

    Yeah that was good stuff.
    You do have 2 and 3 mixed up but in all reality it could go either way I think.
