As we all know, the NFL is a passing league that revolves around quarterbacks. Let’s be honest, we all love that about the league. But sometimes a quarterback is only as good as his best wide receiver. After all, they’re the guys who can turn a five-yard route into a 25-yard gain, helping quarterbacks rack up tons of passing yards, even when the receiver does most of the work.
To be fair, it does go both ways, as receivers get a lot of credit, even when it’s the quarterback who puts the ball precisely where it needs to be. That’s why having a great quarterback-wide receiver tandem is so important in the NFL. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the best quarterback and wide receiver duo of all time for all 32 teams.
Arizona Cardinals: Kurt Warner, Larry Fitzgerald
If you’re going to talk about great Arizona wide receivers, the list has to begin with Larry Fitzgerald. He’s played over 15 seasons with the Cardinals and put up some amazing numbers that will surely earn him a place in the Hall of Fame one day.
Unfortunately for Fitzgerald, he hasn’t always played with top-notch quarterbacks. However, he had a good thing going with Warner from 2005 to 2009. This was at the tail end of Warner’s career and the beginning of Fitzgerald’s. In fact, having a veteran like Warner paid off huge for Fitzgerald, who had three seasons with at least 1,400 yards receiving during Warner’s time in Arizona, including his career-high in 2008.
