Three NFL Teams With Best Wide Receiver Trio To Date This Season
I got the idea to write this specific blog from an article I read, (which you can read here http://tinyurl.com/d4ov3p9 ) but decided to give a different view point, as I write about the best NFL's best WR Trio's to date this season.
Green Bay Packers- Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, James Jones
It may seem like putting the this bunch here might be a little bit of a risk, since they are in a pass heavy offense, but you can't ignore the numbers. Between this trio of receivers, they have almost accounted for 500 yards receiving each, with Jones being the exception with 462 yards. Interestingly enough, Jones though is tied for the NFL league in TD receptions with 8(A.J. Green of the Bengals) and Nelson and Cobb also have contributed with their fair share of TD Receptions. Nelson to go along with his 532 receiving yards had 5 TD Receptions as Randall Cobb has 6 TD grabs to go with his 500 receiving yards. Taking into consideration that the Packers WR Greg Jennings, who is arguably their best, has been out most of the season battling injuries. In Jennings absence, the three have been able to step up and perform by producing the numbers that is expected to come out of the Packers receiving game.
Denver Broncos- Brandon Stokley, Eric Decker, Demaryius Thomas
There were many questions entering the season of what the season would be like now that they had Peyton Manning at quarterback, and whether or not he could still play at the same level he was capable of before. Peyton has done a pretty good job of proving critics wrong and shows he's still got it. Manning however does have his receivers to thank. Brandon Stokley, who played alongside Manning in Indianapolis, provides the veteran leadership out of the WR trio, and has 278 receiving yards as well as 3 TD Receptions. Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas both look to have bright futures, Thomas leads the team with 756 receiving yards with 45 receptions, four of them being TD's. On the flipside, Decker has the most TD Receptions with 7 and has accumulated 583 passing yards on 46 catches
Indianapolis Colts- Reggie Wayne, Donnie Avery, T.Y. Hilton
The perfect combination of past(Wayne) present(Avery) and future(Hilton, who is a Rookie) Reggie Wayne has provided Andrew Luck with a reliable and experience receiver as evident that Wayne has 835 Receiving yards, which is the most in the league. Wayne has 61 receptions, three of which have gone for TD's. Avery, who was the recipient of Andrew Luck's first career TD pass, has seemingly found a place in an offense finally. After playing in St. Louis for the first 3 years of his career and a brief stint with the Titans, Avery has come into Indianapolis and has played in significant role in the receiving game. Avery has the potential to become a veteran leader after Reggie Wayne retires and mentor the younger receivers. To date Avery has 34 catches going for 454 yards and a TD for the 2012 season. Rookie T.Y. Hilton could ultimately find his way of being Andrew Luck's go to guy in the future.(coincidentally both are Rookies) Hilton has put up very respectable numbers for a Rookie, garnishing 355 receiving yards on 24 receptions and has caught 2 TD's.
Note: When I wrote and finished this blog, it happened to be on a Thursday night game that the Colts were playing in. I did not add those statistics from that game. All statistics shown, have only been up to week 9.
