With Emmitt Smith joining Troy Aikiman and Michael Irvin in the Hall of Fame last month, and Chris Bosh and Lebron headed to South Beach in hopes of making history, it got us to thinking who is the best "Big Three" of all time. How many titles were won, how many seasons together, and how good each player was on there own were all taken in to account. Here are the results.
10. Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Andre Reed - If it weren’t for a couple of bad Super Bowl performances, this threesome would be much higher on the list. For four straight seasons these three dominated the NFL, racking up 49 regular season wins and four trips to the Super Bowl. Kelly and Reed’s 65 touchdown connections ranks fourth all time for a quarterback and receiver tandem. The Buffalo Bills no huddle offense lead by Kelly was so effective that the NFL was forced to change the rules just to slow them down. All three were fixtures at the Pro Bowl and on the All Pro team in the early 90s. Long before fantasy football made being an all purpose back popular, Thomas was the most complete back in football. He is still the only player to ever lead the NFL in yards from scrimmage four years in a row. Kelly and Thomas have both already been enshrined in the Hall of Fame. Look for Reed and his 951 receptions and 87 touchdowns to join them soon.
