is the patriots current wr group the best in NFL history?

Recommended Posts

I still think the Greatest Show on Turf had a better group.  Although who knows how this season plays out.  Maybe they do eclipse the 2000 Rams.

Close.  Some of those Chargers units under Fouts were amazing.  2000 Rams.  Taylor and Rice on the Niners.

 

But this could surpass them all if Gordon and Brown stay out of trouble.

It’s got immense potential but also could quickly turn among the worst. It’ll be an entertaining story line almost certainly

Probably, in terms of raw talent because it's three top level guys. But one or both of Gordon and Brown will flame out before the end of the season. History tells us that. Josh Gordon hasn't played a full season since 2013 and Brown has quit on two teams this calendar year. So I would probably take Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison or Issac Bruce and Tory Holt. Or for that matter Swan and Stallworth in Pittsburgh or Clayton and Duper in Miami.

Steelers with Brown and some of the other good WR's they have had in recent years were better.

 

Josh Gordon is a shell of himself. He had 1 good year like 10000 years ago. Thomas is a shell of himself. Even Edelman is a shell of himself after getting injured every year.

 

They aren't even the best in the current NFL. They aren't even the best the Patriots have ever had.

No, they are not better than Reggie Wayne, Marvin Harrison, and Dallas Clark.  No, they are not better than Randy Moss, Chris Carter, and Jake Reed.  A malcontent and a drug addict.  Please.

It very well maybe but I'm really not concerned because it is going to be very difficult for Brady to throw to them when Oliver is laying on top of him

Pure talent I'd say yes, but I don't think production wise they will be.

 

New England has never been a team that has a prolific offense always been methodical and very productive, always spreading the wealth out to even the 6th and 7th wr or 3rd te, 4th rb etc.

 

I also don't think they will last and don't mesh well together at all

Gronk Welker and Miss combo was better

 

Good news is that super loaded on offense NE teams don't win Super Bowls

Won't be that productive after that geezer Brady gets knocked out and they have to play with Stidham. Although he looked pretty good in pre-season. I'll puke if the Pats fell ass backwards into another great QB.

2000 Rams - Holt, Bruce

1989 49ers - Rice, Taylor

1998 Vikings - Carter, Moss

2004 Colts - Harrison, Wayne

1991 Bills - Reed, Lofton, Beebe

2007 Patriots - Moss, Welker

2005 Cardinals - Fitzgerald, Boldin

2010 Packers - Jennings, Nelson

 

This year alone I'd take multiple groups over theirs:

 

Falcons: Jones, Ridley, Sanu

Browns: Beckham, Landry

Rams: Cooks, Kupp, Woods

Texans: Hopkins, Fuller, Stills

Vikings: Thielen, Diggs

If healthy and don’t get suspended, it’s a valid argument.

Moss and Welker = Better

 

Bruce and Holt = Better

 

Harrison and Wayne = Better

 

Rice and Taylor = Better

 

Moss and Carter = Better

 

And there are more, but no need to list them all.

 

Antonio Brown is amongst the best ever, and best of his era, but Gordon hasn’t done anything but have one great season like 90 years ago.  Edelman is a great player in their system, but he’s not nearly as good as the WRs in those other great duos.

Multiple teams in history have had two Hall of Fame WR's on it

 

and as MJS pointed out above there are plenty of other candidates past and present.

 

 

If you were after clicks you have succeeded,

 

if you really believe it, you need to calm down and rethink it.
