Putting the QB-WR tandem isn't right because it is one play to defend against, not one OR the other.
Manny is a PED user, which taints it, but I'll except it.
Same with A-Rod.

Ramirez and Ortiz brought alot of fear to opposing pitchers..
And would get big hit after big hit..
It was a 5 year dynasty.. And it brought them 2 rings..
Manny never tested positive as a Red Sox..
So I guess we will never truly know if Ramirez was on something..
Since there is no proof and Ramirez has never admitted to taking PEDs, whilst being a Red Sox.. I am inclined to think that this partnership was legit..
A-rod may have been a bad example..
He is alot harder to defend..
But again, Alex didn't get busted until later in his career..
So before he got busted, I consider what he did as legit..
I'm not sure why you don't consider QB-WR as legit..
There is alot of chemistry involved.. And it requires the QB to be able to read his WR's mind..

I am not debating whether Manny and Ortiz were a good one-two punch, but suspected PED users (Manny) shoudln't be considered in a legit one-two punch, and users (A-Rod) cannot, otherwise Clemens and Petite would be on the list as well.
You can't consider everything A-Rod (and Manny really) has done before admitting (or testing positive) he used legit. If you used this logic, you would also think everything Lance Armstrong did before he admitted as legit too. Once you get caught, everything that has been accomplished prior comes into question.
Finally, the QB-WR is not a one-two punch. Reading minds or having ESP or chemistry or biology does not mean it is a one-two punch. One-Two punch is when you can get hit with one, then the other. You can't get hit with a QB, then a WR. It goes from a QB to a WR all in ONE play.
Sorry for the long delay in argument, crazy last few days.
