Dallas Cowboys: Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin
The Cowboys have had a number of great quarterback and wide receiver tandems, but Aikman and Irvin are one of the all-time greats in the history of the NFL. They spent nearly their entire careers playing together and were at the forefront of the Cowboys dynasty.
To be fair, running back Emmitt Smith was a vital part of that success. It’s nearly impossible not to look at Aikman, Irvin, and Smith as a trio. But it’s no coincidence that both Aikman and Irvin went to the Pro Bowl in five straight seasons from 1991 to 1995 and the Cowboys won three Super Bowls during that time. Both probably would have been fine separate from one another, but there’s no denying that both were special together.
