Accepting nominees for the Seahawks’ Mt. Rushmore

Kennedy Getty Images

The Mt. Rushmore tour continues through the NFC West.  Next up, we’re accepting nominees that ultimately will be whittled to the four greatest Seahawks in the franchise’s 37-year history.

While the very best could indeed by yet to come (and soon), the best of the franchise’s past includes plenty of guys who don’t currently play for the team, like Jim Zorn and Steve Largent and Cortez Kennedy and Matthew Hasselbeck.

For now, nominate your finalists, and we’ll eventually cut it down to four.

    I’m not even a seahawks fan, but Walter Jones has to make this list.

  7. unbiasfan says: May 14, 2013 1:08 AM

    According to Seahawks fans, every player on their team deserves to be on it

    Walter Jones, Cortez Kennedy, and Steve Largent. The fourth is debatable: Hass, Mack Strong, Alexander, Zorn

  17. brownsalwaysrebuilding says: May 14, 2013 1:22 AM

    Tough one, I admit I am not familiar with the Seahawks’ past rosters.

  22. shemberry says: May 14, 2013 1:31 AM

    Steve Largent is the greatest Seahawk of all time. He should be joined by Walter Jones, Cortez Kennedy and Kenny Easley.

  23. jason49er says: May 14, 2013 1:32 AM

    Steve Largent
    Cortez Kennedy
    Walter Jones
    Shaun Alexander (Had 100 rushing TDs, including a record setting 27 the year they went to the Superbowl)

  24. 13datsyuk13 says: May 14, 2013 1:35 AM

    The Boz?

  25. anygivensundayfan says: May 14, 2013 1:35 AM

    Steve Largent is a lock. Just etch his face there permanently.

    Cortez Kennedy, Curt Warner, Kenny Easley, Shaun Alexander, Dave Kreig, Matt Hasselbeck, Jim Zorn (in no particular order).

    Also going to nominate Mack Strong and Steve Hutchinson. They still rock as hometown Seahawks analysts/announcers.

    Of course, we can’t forget Brian Bosworth…ok, I kid, of course we can.

  26. tbraiders says: May 14, 2013 1:37 AM

    Steve Largent and Kenny Easley are the first two names that come to mind when I think of the great Seahawks of yesterday, but I will always remember Dave Krieg handing the ball off to John L Williams and him pounding through the line or seeing him lead block for Warner. I don’t really know where he rates among the fans, while I do know that Walter Jones and Cortez Kennedy were two of the best at their position so will put them on my list. Shout-out to the original Curt Warner (with a C) – I don’t recall him having a long career but when he was healthy he was a joy to watch.

    Steve Largent
    Kenny Easley
    Walter Jones
    Cortez Kennedy

    HM:
    Shaun Alexander
    Curt Warner
    Matt Hasselbeck
    Eugene Robinson
    John L. Williams – loved watching this guy lead block and/or carry the ball. Bruising FB.

  27. seattlelgt says: May 14, 2013 1:39 AM

    Walter Jones, Steve Largent, Cortez Kennedy and Kenny Easley.

  28. brintfatre says: May 14, 2013 1:40 AM

    1. The replacement ref who called it a touchdown.
    2. Pete Carroll’s reputation.
    3. The 12th man.
    4. “One Manning down, one to go” fan poster.

  29. henryjones20 says: May 14, 2013 1:40 AM

    curt warner jim zorn steve largent kenny easley cortez Kennedy

  30. pathsovglory says: May 14, 2013 1:42 AM

    Pretty simple

    Steve Largent
    Cortez Kennedy
    Walter Jones
    and your choice of Matthew Hasselbeck or Mike Holmgren.

    Shaun Alexander was great because Jones and Hutch made him great.

  31. cascadiahawk says: May 14, 2013 1:44 AM

    I understand that you were just throwing out names and all, but how you just glanced over Walter Jones blows my mind…

  32. mobuccsfan says: May 14, 2013 1:44 AM

    Kennedy
    Largent
    Walter Jones
    Shaun Alexander
    Curt Warner
    Matt Hasselback
    Jim Zorn

    Potential future guys could include: Sherman, Thomas, Lynch, R. Wilson–again, could…only time will tell.

  33. tsuscrumhalf says: May 14, 2013 1:45 AM

    Walter Jones, Shaun Alexander, Steve Largent, Cortez Kennedy

  38. jayovalentine says: May 14, 2013 1:56 AM

    Cortez Kennedy !! Shaun Alexander. Hasselbeck and as much as it hurts to say this as a Skins fan… Jim Zorn… 1st star the Seahawks had.

  39. mcba1n says: May 14, 2013 2:00 AM

    Steve Largent
    Walter Jones
    Cortez Kennedy
    Kenny Easley

    Tough leaving Shaun Alexander and Jim Zorn off of the list – but all those 4 listed are ‘in the conversation’ for ‘best of all time’ at their positions.

    Kennedy and Easley are vastly under-rated.

    For a season or 2, Walter Jones was the BEST football player at ANY position. Jones, also, is unbelievably under-appreciated – such is the life of the best LT of his generation and it isn’t even close if you watch the tape. Jones would’ve been the best LT ever if it weren’t for injuries – the guy was beast whilst 100% – Munoz/Ogden beast (for modern players).

  40. jdphx says: May 14, 2013 2:04 AM

    Steve Largent
    Jim Zorn
    Cortez Kennedy
    Walter Jones

  41. ninjahawk says: May 14, 2013 2:05 AM

    The absolute 3 “musts” for the Seahawks would be…

    1. Steve Largent
    2. Cortez Kennedy
    3. Walter Jones

    Those three are all Hall of Famers. The 4th spot could be debated between Zorn, Hasselbeck, Curt Warner and maybe even Kenny Easley. Tough call.

  42. farvite says: May 14, 2013 2:06 AM

    Ground Chuck, Largent, Big Show… Then a pick ‘em between Big Tez and Walter Jones. Really can’t decide.

    Honorable mention Kenny Easley and Matthew Hasselbeck.

  43. hawdog says: May 14, 2013 2:19 AM

    Steve Largent, Walter Jones, Cortez Kennedy, Shaun Alexander? If not Alexander then Curt Warner.

  44. bleedburgandyandgold says: May 14, 2013 2:21 AM

    Cortez Kennedy

  45. chuckyd317 says: May 14, 2013 2:21 AM

    Largent, Alexander, Kennedy…. that’s all I know…

  46. chemebiker says: May 14, 2013 2:24 AM

    12th Man

  47. hess97 says: May 14, 2013 2:28 AM

    S Largent
    K Easley
    C Kennedy
    W Jones

    none of those dirty cheap drug and skittles chugging Pete Carrol- coached bastards. Leroy Hill- watch your ACL and PCL when you play the niners. You know what I’m talking bout!

  48. scothawk says: May 14, 2013 2:29 AM

    Mack Strong.

  49. threatlevelxmidnight says: May 14, 2013 2:45 AM

    Steve Largent
    Cortez Kennedy
    Walter Jones
    Kenny Easley

  50. longhammer24 says: May 14, 2013 2:55 AM

    Kennedy, Jones, Largent, Hasselbeck, Lynch. Marshawn makes it despite a short tenure because of the Beastquake being the single best play in franchise history.

  51. spiritfuryfire says: May 14, 2013 2:56 AM

    Steve Largent /Cortez Kennedy/Walter Jones /Mack Strong

    Honorable Mention: Hasselbeck

  52. jtylert says: May 14, 2013 2:56 AM

    Walter Jones was arguably the best player at any position during his tenure at left tackle, so I think he deserves to be front and center. Kennedy, Largent, and Hasselbeck should round it out.

    Maybe Warren Moon?

    Or how about Jerry Rice?

  53. longhammer24 says: May 14, 2013 2:56 AM

    Crap that’s 5. Sorry Marshawn, you’re cut.

  54. kkoska says: May 14, 2013 2:57 AM

    1. Walt Jones
    2. Cortez Kennedy
    3. Steve Largent
    4. Matthew Hasselbeck

  55. slugbaitspace says: May 14, 2013 3:08 AM

    Walter Jones
    Chuck Knox
    Cortez Kennedy
    Steve Largent

  56. jshawaii22 says: May 14, 2013 3:16 AM

    You have a couple of the top three…
    Steve Largent, Walter Jones and Cortez Kennedy are the players… the forth…

    I nominate our owner, Paul Allen, because without him, the team would be in L.A. — (Ken Behring should go do something to himself)

    js

  57. ghostfacenoah says: May 14, 2013 3:22 AM

    My top four are
    1) Walter Jones not even debatable
    2) Cortez Kennedy
    3) Steve Largent
    4) Shaun Alexander
    (5) The Twelth Man!

  58. nativeraider says: May 14, 2013 3:24 AM

    Here we go…
    1 Steve Largent
    2Walter Jones
    3Shawn Springs
    4Joey Galloway

  59. djwildthang says: May 14, 2013 3:25 AM

    Largent, Kennedy, Hasselbeck, and holmgren or Knox (tough choice). Of course the monument would be created by russell wilson and bozworth bubbleheads would be sold in the gift shop.

  60. inyofaceagain says: May 14, 2013 3:28 AM

    Hasselbeck
    Walter Jones
    Shaun Alexander
    Percy Harvin (yes already)

  61. djwildthang says: May 14, 2013 3:28 AM

    Sorry bozworth bobble heads, and forgot to mention paul Allen would pay for the whole monument.

  62. nathpz says: May 14, 2013 3:33 AM

    I got stumped after Steve Largent and Walter Jones. I guess Kennedy is in the Hall of Fame, right? And then maybe Hasselbeck? Russell Wilson will be there in a few years.

  63. wkdblc52 says: May 14, 2013 3:36 AM

    Walter Jones, Steve Largent, Shaun Alexander, Cortez Kennedy

  64. rukkus1 says: May 14, 2013 3:37 AM

    Walter Jones, of course.

  70. hokiez says: May 14, 2013 4:20 AM

    Largent, Easley, Jones and Hasselbeck.

    Honorable to Warner. Ask me again in three years

    Curt Warner

  73. hawkfan50 says: May 14, 2013 4:57 AM

    Walter Jones . Steve Largent . Paul Allen ( he saved the franchise from that imbecile Behring ) . Shaun Alexander ( League MVP , ’nuff said ) .

  74. spideysdog says: May 14, 2013 5:26 AM

    As a Hawks fan, it depresses me to say this one was pretty easy….

    Steve Largent. He held many NFL receiving records till some guy named Rice came around.

    Curt Warner. The face of the franchise during our first serious period of contention.

    Walter Jones. One of, if not the best LT of his generation and the man that protected Hasselbecks back side for the Super Bowl run. Sure HOFer.

    Cortez Kennedy. Big Tez played in the dark era of Seahawks football, with one of the worst owners, Behring, and questionable coaches, Flores, yet the man brought it each and every down.

    Honorable mention to Hasselbeck, Holmgren, Alexander, Robinson, John L Williams, and Dave fumble fingers Krieg.

    Matt Hasselbeck, Jim Zorn definitely… Steve Largent, Dave Krieg, Cortez Kennedy or even Shaun Alexander for the final two spots.

  85. sfniners4life says: May 14, 2013 7:04 AM

    Hahaha….. Admire ur history Seattle before you talk trash to niner fans. Outside of largent these ppl are average players that are being consider as your franchises best of all time. I had a tuff debate with the niners and even my honorable mentions are better then yours.

  86. v2the4 says: May 14, 2013 7:12 AM

    I guess I will be the first to make a mt rushmore seahawks nomitation.

    Unanimous Selections: WR Steve Largent and DT Cortez Kennedy

    runner ups: OT Walter Jones and FB Mack Strong

    just on the outside: DT Jacob Green, WR Brian Blades, DB Kenny Easley, QB Jim Zorn, RB Shawn Alexander, CB Marcus Trufant

  87. hawksfanallday says: May 14, 2013 7:15 AM

    Largent, Kennedy,Walter jones, and Hasselbeck/Alexander

    Hard decision between hass and alexander for the last spot.

  92. riggo44rg3 says: May 14, 2013 7:30 AM

    Wow, 37 years of what? Fans with paper bags over their heads, threats to move the franchise due to a lack of fan support, bandwagon fans who enjoyed many seasons with several local market blackouts of home games. Seattle’s NFL Mt. Rushmore should be an image of a bandwagon with maybe Steve Largent and the other two spots would simple question marks “?”.

    Seattle Seahawks in the Hall of Fame: (profootballhof.com)
    Cortez Kenedy and Steve Largent. Really! What a joke!

    Your dreams of success are far more vivid than your last 37 years of mediocrity.

  93. dionthreed says: May 14, 2013 7:33 AM

    1) Largent. 2) Cortez Kennedy 3) Matt Hasselbeck 4) Kenny Easly

  94. shanehawks says: May 14, 2013 7:33 AM

    Those are good nominees, Matthew being my personal favorite. You can’t forget to include Walter Jones though, quite possibly the best LT to play the game. I would also like to see Marcus Trufant nominated too, when he was on top if his game he was a shut down corner and never got the recognition he deserved. Go Hawks!!

  95. wvuandsteelers says: May 14, 2013 7:34 AM

    Curt Warner, Steve Largent, Walter Jones and Kenny Easley.

    Chuck Knox just misses the cut.

  96. swagjag says: May 14, 2013 7:41 AM

    Largent
    Warren
    Alexander
    Kennedy

  97. grogantomorganforthe says: May 14, 2013 7:44 AM

    The Seahawks are a tough one. Many good players, but very few truly great players in history.

    Steve Largent
    Cortez Kennedy
    Jim Zorn

    Though to pick between Hasselbeck, Curt Warner, Kenny Easley, or anyone else as a fourth all things considered. Guess Hasselbeck gets the nod for getting them to their only SuperBowl appearance.

  98. SAV says: May 14, 2013 7:50 AM

    Shawn Alexander
    Steve Largent
    Russell Wilson
    Mike Holmgren

    No offense to Cortez Kennedy if it went up today it be him over Wilson I just believe RW will be a Hall of Famer first ballot one day and Holmgren built that Superbowl team giving respectability back to that team after 15 plus years of trash.

  99. halps80 says: May 14, 2013 7:51 AM

    This one is easy. Two HOF’ers: Steve Largent and Cortez Kennedy. Followed by soon-to-be HOF’er Walter Jones. Only real debate is between Shawn Alexander and Kenny Easley. My vote goes to the guy whom Ronnie Lott calls the best safety to ever play the game, and who would be in the HOF had a health issue not shortened his career.

  100. acmepackers says: May 14, 2013 7:51 AM

    Steve Largent, Shaun Alexander, Kenny Easly, Matt Hasselbeck

  101. tomtravis76 says: May 14, 2013 7:52 AM

    Largent, Cortez Kennedy, Hasselbeck, #12

    Had such high hopes for Boz, didn’t really pan out.

    Matt Hasselbeck
    Shawn Alexander

  103. neilpountney says: May 14, 2013 8:08 AM

    Dave Kreig should be on any list. Very under rated player in his time.

  104. jimbo75025 says: May 14, 2013 8:10 AM

    Hasselbeck
    Alexander
    Largent
    Kennedy

  105. mortynv says: May 14, 2013 8:17 AM

    There is only one other person I my opinion that should be on here and it is Mack Strong. Played 12 seasons all with the Seahawks and was the lead blocker all those years. They kept drafting fullbacks and none of them could dethrow him. Would have been in more Pro Bowls if it wasn’t for a fullback in Tampa that got all the media attention. Mack Strong should be on this list.

    Two current and one future HoFer.

    Steve Largent
    Cortez Kennedy
    Walter Jones

    The other is a tossup but I would say Shaun Alexander because of the MVP award in a Super Bowl season.

    Cortez Kennedy, Steve Largent, Walter Jones, and the last spot would be either Kenny Easley or Shaun Alexander. Easley would be my last one to make it.

  119. trollhammer20 says: May 14, 2013 8:44 AM

    Largent, Kennedy, Jones, and Paul Allen.

    Would say Matt Hasselbeck, but, without Paul Allen, there is no Seattle NFL team today. Ken Behring would have moved them to LA in the late 90s. Allen bought the team, led efforts to build a new stadium, hired a winning coach (Holmgren), then made another great move in dumping Ruskell/Mora for Schneider/Carroll.

    Trolls will say Bosworth, McGwire, Mirer, and Curry.

    The “hardcore fan Mt. Rushmore” could well be Efren Herrera, Dan Doornink, Rufus Porter, and Fredd Young.

    I’d say the 4 has to come from that list.

    Steve Hutchinson would be a consideration if it weren’t for how he left town.

    If we’re including coaches, Knox and Holmgren are the obvious choices.

    Tough when so many of the best and Iconic were on sub-par teams, but:

    Hasselbeck (gets the edge on face recognition)

    HM:

  133. supesfan34 says: May 14, 2013 9:17 AM

    The first three are locks. The fourth is close between Holmgren and Hasselbeck IMO. I’m taking the QB.

    Gotta start with the two HOFers, and then it gets really hard.

    Steve Largent

    Matt Hasselbeck
    Mike Holmgren
    Walter Jones
    Cortez Kennedy
    Dave Krieg
    Steve Largent

    Largent, Kennedy, Jones, and leave the 4th blank, because it is still in the making. Lynch, Wilson, Chancellor, Thomas, or Sherman could end up there.

    I would temporarily put either John L Williams or Mack Strong there for now so the most under appreciated position can get some love. Williams could do it all and how can you go wrong with a fullback named Mack Strong……

    I’ll give honorable mention to Lofa Tatupu. His career was not long, but that guy was a monster. The best defensive player for the only Super Bowl team in franchise history.

    The top three stand out way above the rest, but Easley is a clear choice over the rest as well.

    Just outside the top four: Jacob Green, Mack Strong, Matthew Hasselbeck, Dave Krieg, Mike Holmgren, Chuck Knox and Paul Allen. Hutchinson and Galloway could have been in the conversation had they stayed in Seattle.

    It’s nice to see John L. Williams get some love on here. Growing up, playing backyard tackle football,
    me and the neighborhood kids used to argue about who got to “be” John L. (the loser would get to be Bo Jackson or Eric Dickerson).

    And LOL at whoever said Brian Blades. His one good year (the ‘Hawks, in those days, only sent rookies to the Pro Bowl) was a function of other teams employing the “kill the Largent and the body will die” defense, and he was merely average in the ensuing decade. No way does he ever crack the CLink “ring of honor”, and I’m pretty sure rings of honor aren’t artificially capped at 4 names. Remember what a breath of fresh air Joey Galloway was? That’s the legacy of Brian Blades.

    Any of these lists that don’t include Water Jones have no credibility – he was the best player in the NFL (regardless of position) for many years, and by FAR the best player the Seahawks ever suited up.

    Walter Jones
    Cortez Kennedy
    Steve Largent
    Paul Allen

    I include Paul Allen for one simple reason: If Paul Allen hadn’t purchased the team, there would be no Seahawks in Seattle today. Can’t make a better argument than that.

    It’s terrible to leave Tez off, but he was in a meaningless era and the franchis was on a U-Haul to LA at one point. Holmgren, in terms of football history in SEA, means more. The other 3 are locks, IMO.

    Alexander can make a case holding a NFL record (for a year)
    Hasselback because he is awesome, funny, and the most accomplished QB in franchise history.
    Easley was amazing in his prime, but his prime was just too short

    Largent, Kennedy, Walter Jones and Shaun Alexander

    Hey Guys they will be starting out with 12, so it would be GREAT to give PFT a larger list to start with. . . don’t restrict the list to player either. I’ll be back with my Long List
