Default Who has the best offensive weapons?

Thinking specifically about the number 1's for each position (QB, RB, WR and TE) which team do you think has the best offensive weapons in the league?

Some people might think this is an easy question.

I'd say it's the Atlanta Falcons:

QB - Matt Ryan.
RB - Michael Turner.
WR - Roddy White.
TE - Tony Gonzalez.

I'd be interested to see if anyone has any other opinions + you can say what you think is the greatest selection of all time if you want.

I'd possibly take Manning/Wayne/Clark/Addai over that.

Addai might not be close to the level that Turner is, but, Manning is a few notches above Ryan, Wayne and White is a scratch, and Clark is a better TE right now than Gonzo.

I'd have to say the Colts. Manning, Addai (to a lesser extent), Clark and Wayne=a lot of points. After that? Probably Houston (Schaub, Foster, Daniels, Johnson) and Philadelphia (Vick, McCoy, Celek, Jackson).

Rodgers/Grant/Jennings/Finley is a fairly good one. If Grant and Finley had been healthy all year then the Pack could well have been the Pats of the NFC.

Borth the Colts and Falcons are fairly good shouts too, although the one to watch is Freeman/Blount/Williams/Winslow.

Well they're all Pro Bowlers whether that be on merit or not. That must have been hard for you to admit as well!

I see Eagles, Packers and Texans all mentioned and they would all definitely be contenders for me.

As for all time I'm not as sure. You go back and theres been good teams with 3 of 4 of them without any obvious ones springing to mind.

On their day the Eagles can be phenomenal, but given the inconsistent play from them this year I wouldn't vote for them.

Going to put the Chargers out there though: Rivers, Mathews*, Jackson, Gates.

*This is admittedly a 'potential' pick, he didn't have a great year but some of the flashes he showed were scary.

What about the Steelers?

Roethlisberger - top 8 QB.
Mendenhall - terrific young back, multiple 1000 yards rusher.
Wallace - the best WR under 25 in the league.
MIller - top top class TE.

There's a decent argument, certainly.

Dont count out the Pats, you dont put up the yards/stats they have without a great balanced offence
