Debate Time "QBs vs. WRs"

So I was browsing ESPN.com and came across this question on the NFC North Blog.

If you had to pick, would you prefer a great quarterback with average receivers or vice versa? After all, that pretty much describes the situations in Chicago and Minnesota, respectively. What's the preferable arrangement?

In response to the question as related to the Bears and Viqueens, I take Cutler all day and the reason  don't believe that the Minnesota receiving core is that dominant. They have Berrian who is a solid #2 receiver and Wade who is a very weak #2, possibly even a #3. Then when you throw TEs into the mix, all I have to say is I take Greg Olsen and Desmond Clark over Shiancoe any day. So my point is that Minnisota doesn't have a good enough receiving core to make this a debate.

Now in response to the question throughout the NFL, I still take the QB and the reason is found in Seiferts reponse

A really good group of receivers can bail out an average quarterback at times, but not to the extent that an elite quarterback can lift an average group of receivers. I'll take Tom Brady with Troy Brown and David Patten over Ryan Fitzpatrick with Chad Ocho Cinco and T.J. Houshmandzadeh any day.

and who wouldn't?

What are your thoughts?
