From a time when the forward pass was illegal before 1906, all the way up to the high powered offenses of today, the game of football has changed a lot. Wide receiver has become the most exciting position in football, with one-handed catches, unbelievable foot work, and incredible breakaway speed. Precision quarterbacks like Drew Brees, Tom Brady, or Peyton Manning have made the wide receiver position more important than ever, with some teams planning their entire offense around the quarterback and wide receivers. One great receiver can change a team. And if you manage to have two? Defenses around the league were not looking forward to facing these awesome wide receiver combinations.

9. Alshon Jeffery & Brandon Marshall – 2012-2013

This duo is very similar in size and weight, and also in ability, catching 331 passes combined in just two years. Alshon is just starting his career, and in 2013 he broke out with 1526 total yards with 7 touchdowns. He made it to the Pro Bowl, along with his team mate Brandon Marshall. They have averaged 2347 yards and 11.5 touchdowns per season, and this duo is just getting started. The Chicago Bears hope 2014 is even better.
