Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery recently shared his belief that he and Brandon Marshall make up the top receiving duo in the NFL, an argument that their 2,716 yards and 19 touchdowns in 2013 supports quite nicely. At this time last year, though, Falcons wideouts Julio Jones and Roddy White were coming off a year that saw them combine for 2,549 yards and 17 touchdowns on the way to a berth in the NFC Championship Game. Both Jones and White struggled with injuries last season, limiting their productivity and the Falcons’ chances of winning but that hasn’t shaken the duo’s confidence in their abilities. White says that they are “going to be there to play in the party” in 2014 and Jones says they have designs on claiming the unofficial title of the league’s best 1-2 punch at wide receiver.
