The term "The Big Three" has been a fixture in NBA vocabulary since LeBron James took his talents to South Beach to join his buddies Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Then we compared that Miami Heat team to other big trio's in the past and present. The NFL's version of a big three would have to be the quarterback, wide receiver and running back combinations. Back in the 1990's the Dallas Cowboys had a Three-Headed Monster that fit the bill while Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin brought the Cowboys 3 big Super Bowl victories in 4 years.

So who are the best Three-Headed Monsters in the NFL? We have to start at QB because if you don't have that then your team isn't in the conversation. Now, having a big three on this football list doesn't mean each player needs to be top 3 at each position, but it helps. And in today's game, the tight end is sometimes the best receiver on the team.
I'm going to put together the top 20 best trio's in the NFL as of today! The teams and the players of today, not last season and not 5 seasons ago. I make this list based on what I see on the field for the most part. The other factor of course are statistics but we'll just go with the names on the back of the jersey's.
OKay here we go! This is off the top of my head so I am subject to change a teams placement by a slot or two if you can convince me! Let's see what you guys think!?
