Not even close... Taylor and Mitchell.


Great choice. Another duo to consider is Stallworth/Swann.

Why
They aren`t even in the same neighborhood as the two skins duos or fits and bolden


Uh, both Stallworth and Swann are in the hall of fame?

Harrison and Reggie Wayne. Also Moss and that little dude in New England. Moss and Chris Carter was a deadly combo as well.

Sterling Sharpe, Robert Brooks and Antonio Freeman was a triple threat. Until Sharpe had that neck injury. Jerry Rice and John Taylor. If we want to count Tight ends as well. Shannon Sharpe and Ed Mcaffrey was a good duo.

Oh yeah, I don't think it is fair to mention just Clark and Monk. It was Monk, Clark and Sanders. It was a triple threat if I remember correctly.

Just because they are in the HoF, doesn't put them in the same neiborhood! They were extremely overhyped and played on a Steelers team that has almost every player in the HoF. With as many players as they have in, you would think they were the 60's Packers or something.

They were good WR on a great team. Neither should be in the HoF! I would take Clark, Moss or even Sanders over either of them.

Maybe I'm a bit too biased against them, but either of them being in Canton is just a joke!

None of the "add ons" ever had to do what Mitchell and Taylor did... over a 12 game season... all while being mugged constantly by physical dbs who didn't have to worry about PI being called because they breathed too hard on the receiver...

Good point. Swan and Stallworth had to deal with the same circumstances as well. Yeah back in the day it was a much more manlier game IMHO. Even in the leatherhead days. Now that must have been brutal.

Man that is hillarious. Swan has made some of the greatest catches in history. In the Playoffs. In the SuperBowl. Same can be said for Stallworth. Without Swan or Stallworth the Steelers of the Seventies do not have four SuperBowls. They complemented Bradshaw and Franco Harris. Just like Rice and Montana.

Also consider they had different rules for defensive backs then. DBs could bump you all the way down the field. Not like now.

I mentioned Clark and Sanders and I know they were #2 and #3 WR for the Posse, but they were also more porductive than the Stallworth and Swann combo. Monk/Clark combo is so far above the combo of Stallworth/Swann that any comparrison if laughable.

I tried to find where Swann fell on the all time reception list and I couldn't because it only listed the top 252 players :shock:

But here is a great combo that I'm surprised no one has mentioned.
Bruce/Holt.

Well did you consider the difference in rules? The receivers are protected now. Pass interference makes a big difference if you are talking stats. Imagine if you could bump the receivers anytime on the field. They would virtually have three catches a game, if that.

Just think about what a guy like Sean Taylor would do to a receiver. He would maul him all the way down the field. No receiver would stand a chance. That is what those receivers in the past had to deal with.

Just want to point out that this is exactly how Pat Fischer made his living... and he was very good at it. Playing against him was literally a painful experience for receivers of the '60's and '70's.
