This question has bounced around for years. Does the WR make the plays that make the QB special or does the WR need a great QB to fully display his true game. Look what happened in Minnesota when Bret Farve hooked up with Sidney Rice this year.
With receivers like Crabs or TO or any top 10 receiver, they make a QB look better. However, a mid tier receiver does not. A good QB makes more average receivers look better than good receivers do to average QBs.
An All-star QB can make an average WR put up ALL-Pro numbers..
An All-star WR can make a backup QB put up respectable numbers..
WR Example.. Look at all-stars in their down years.. Randy Moss in Oakland was still the same Randy Moss, just didnt have a QB to get him the ball to put up the typical MOSS numbers, now look what hes doing with Brady..
QB Example.. Tom Brady, before Welker and Moss, was the 3,000-3,5000 20-25td 10-15int passer.. Since getting some talent at the WR position, he has been around a 4,000yd passer 35-50tds 5-15int INSANE numbers..
