Came across this article from NFL.com and had me shaking my head at some of their calls. It ranks all 32 teams for 2018 based on how dynamic their triplets are, being their quarterback, starting running back and what they call the team's best pass catcher. Many a times they count the tight end over the #1 WR.
I do have to agree hands down that the Steelers are #1. Roethlisberger + Le'Veon Bell + Antonio Brown, that's close to as good as it gets. Their #2 call is very strong too with the Saints: Brees/Kamara/Thomas. Though it's a close call for me vs the Chargers.
After that, the rest of their top 10 is in this order: Pats, Falcons, Chargers, Panthers, Packers, Vikings, Giants and Texans.
I would go:
1 - Steelers (Ben Roethlisberger/LeVeon Bell/Antonio Brown)
2 (tie) - Saints (Drew Brees/Alvin Kamara/Michael Thomas)
2 (tie) - Chargers (Phillip Rivers/Melvin Gordon/Keenan Allen)
4 - Falcons (Matt Ryan/Devonta Freeman/Julio Jones)
5 - Pats (Tom Brady/Sony Michel/Rob Gronkowski)
6 - Giants (Eli Manning/Saquon Barkley/Odell Beckham)
7 - Texans (Deshaun Watson/Lamar Miller/DeAndre Hopkins)
8 - Seahawks (Russell Wilson/Rashaad Penny/Doug Baldwin)
9 - Rams (Jared Goff/Todd Gurley/Bradin Cooks)
10 - Cardinals (Josh Rosen/David Johnson/Larry Fitzgerald)
Tough call leaving out the Cowboys, Vikings, Packers, Eagles. Those would be my next tier at 11-14.
How would you order it? Who is in your top 3,5 or even top 10? Doesn't have to be this year actually. Could even go with who is the best trio of all time? Does Aikman/Emmitt/Irving land #1, or are the Steelers right now actually better?? With that, I am not sure... Any other trio beat that?
