The Jack Files - Tecmo 3: Wide Receiver Tandems

Ranked by 40% Maximum Speed + Receptions. Tight Ends are included.

Listed here are the best quarterbacks for each of the 30 teams. Here in the Jack Files, we don't play that silly "add up all the numbers" game. We weight each attribute as we do see fit. Open to criticism, here is the formula employed:

Conclusions:

Looky here, the Jets are dead last. Pittsburgh and KC have crappy passing attacks to complement their excellent defenses. Cleveland has great receivers, too bad their quarterback sucks

No surprise at the top: Rice and anybody makes a good pair of receivers.

The Saints, Redskins, and Bears might surprise you here.

In certain cases, speed is more important than we give it credit for.

Our league permits using running backs as receivers. So certain running backs, like Edgar Bennett and Larry Centers, might have a large impact on the team rating if included.

If the The Weak Link Theory is applied, then the Jets have major problems. This theory suggests that a passing attack is only as good as the worst of its quarterback or receivers. If the theory is true, then Boomer Esiason's seemingly good numbers do not lead to good passing.
