I think two of the top tandems in the league are in the NFC South, in VJ/Williams and Jones/White. The reason I hesitate to say they are the top two is that Nicks/Cruz duo in NY is pretty damn good as well.
As we witnessed, Buc fans had a front row seat to that show.

i doubt we see abuse like that again.

Haha yep. I was in that stadium. What a **CENSORED**ing nightmare.
Jesus I could barely watch it on TV, I could only imagine the feelings you went thru.

It was really a wild and exciting game from the perspective of a general football fan, but from a Buc fan's perspective, it was an absolute nightmare. After the Wright pick six to end the half, Giants fans were leaving and everything was going great. As Eli proceeded to shred the secondary, I was just speechless. One of the more disappointing Bucs games I've seen. Set the team off on that early season losing streak.

I really dont think colston is better than mwill...... they might be equally but I think mike's amazing body control gives him the edge. I'm a bucs fan though so im bias.

I give Mike Williams the edge of Colston because I believe Mike is better after the catch...... And I'm a buc fan. #**CENSORED**theSaints

I feel like you have more to contribute. What's the reasoning for your rankings?

The quest for .500 begins...

While he runs his mouth constantly and can be very annoying, I have always thought Roddy White was a beast. His isn't the fastest guy, he isn't the most physically gifted, but the guy can make all the catches and is an exceptional route runner. He is constant. Dude has played at a high level the last 6 years. He stays healthy. Best WR in the NFCS...and it's not even all that close IMO. Jones is 2nd because of his freaky athleticism. He will eventually take over the number 1 spot. He has a bit more big play ability and scores TDs at a higher rate than White, but White is able to get open on nearly every route on any part of the field. V-Jax has the big play ability and has some of the same physical attributes of Julio Jones. Another year like last year and I would move him to number 2. Steve Smith is Steve Smith. Dude is still a playmaker and still scary every time he touches the ball. Colston is another constant. He finds ways to get open and will make some magnificent catches. He is excellent at getting open on intermediate routes. I've always felt Colston doesn't get as much credit as he deserves as people have tagged him as a guy who would be nothing without Brees. Maybe, but I think he is a playmaker. Williams is one of the best jump ball WRs in the league. He has crazy bodily control. Once he learns a few more tricks at getting better separation, he could climb right on up the list. Moore and Lafell are decent.

ATL

Roddy White 92 catches 143 targets 1351 yards 14.7 avg 7 TDs 346 YAC 73 1st Downs
Julio Jones 79 catches 129 targets 1198 yards 15.2 avg 10 TDs 486 YAC 56 1st Downs


CAROLINA

Steve Smith 73 catches 138 targets 1174 yards 16.1 avg. 4 TDs 268 YAC 51 1st Downs
Brandon LaFell 44 catches 76 targets 677 yards 15.4 avg 4 TDs 312 YAC 31 1st Downs


N.O.

Marques Colston 83 catches 132 targets 1154 yards 13.9 avg 10 TDs 306 YAC 65 1st Downs
Lance Moore 65 catches 105 targets 1041 yards 16.0 avg 6 TDs 162 YAC 55 1st Downs


TAMPA

Vincent Jackson 72 catches 147 targets 1384 yards 19.2 avg 8 TDs 394 YAC 61 1st Downs
Mike Williams 63 catches 127 targets 996 yards 15.8 avg 9 TDs 350 YAC 44 1st Downs

Anyone else notice that other than LaFell, all the WRs listed have a better ratio of catches to targets than ours do? 

For example, Lance Moore has 2 more catches in 22 fewer targets than Mike Will, and a bigger Yards per.

Helps when you have a QB who can throw a football through a football sized window from 50+ yards away. Not a more accurate QB in the league, IMO.
