So, Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson Are Pretty Good
Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson is the best QB/WR combination in the NFL. At least if you’re looking at statistics and boiling those statistics down to a three-year sample period.
Rodgers and Nelson have, by far, the highest quarterback-to-receiver rating in the NFL over the last three seasons. It’s a pretty astounding 143.9, which is more than 20 points higher than second place (123.0). That position is held by the not-so-shabby Peyton Manning to Demaryius Thomas combination.
See for yourself.
Where did this come from, you’re probably wondering?
Well, the other day, some tool said that Andy Dalton and A.J. Green were the best QB/WR combination in the NFL. That tool was their offensive coordinator, Hue Jackson.
The Red Rifle. Hahahahahahahahahahaha!
So the Washington Post went and actually pulled some stats to find out who was really the best combo in the NFL.
Here are Rodgers’ and Nelson’s numbers over the past three seasons: 224 attempts, 158 completions (70.5 percent), 2,683 yards, 26 touchdowns and three interceptions.
Now, for the sake of posterity.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
