Long-suffering Cardinals can still fill a Mt. Rushmore

Fitz Getty Images

The Arizona Cardinals, previously known as the Phoenix Cardinals and the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cardinals, have been around a long time.  As a team, they don’t have much to show for it.

But even the Cardinals will be able to point proudly to a quartet of franchise cornerstones.  While no coach has led the team for more than six years, plenty of great players have worn the white helmet with the red bird on the side.

Nominate your choices below for the Cardinals’ Mt. Rushmore.  The finalists will be named at a later date, and the four picks from PFT Planet will be unveiled during a June edition of Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network.

    This is kinda tough because we have had no super bowl wins. But some how I think Rod Tidwell will make it up there. Making that Kwan, show him the money.

    Quarterback Jim Hart, who played for the Cardinals from 1966-1983, and for the Redskins in 1984, had a great run in the 1970’s. From 1974-1976, he guided the Cardinals to three straight 10+ win seasons along with back to back division crowns in 1974 and 1975. He was also selected to the Pro Bowl four times 1974-1977 (source: Wikipedia).

    Those Cardinals teams in the 1970’s were coached by passing game innovator, Don Coryell, whose concept of the deep ball as the primary pass option for the QB has had a huge influence on the evolution of the offense. Coryell’s revolutionary ideas eventually led to the 5,000 yard passing seasons and the primacy of the QB in today’s NFL. Jim Hart and Coryell were a couple decades ahead of their time, in terms of their offensive system.

    Not sure how I left Kurt Warner off since he got the Cards to the Super Bowl…

  33. oneandonlyramsfaninpa says: May 14, 2013 10:47 PM

    I’m a rams fan but cards like us are a storied franchise that had many great players but nothing really to show for it. So here are my nominees as a rivals fan:

    Larry Fitzgerald: yes he is “new” but he represents what the cards stand for really. hope, value and integrity, he is the face of the franchise now so why not of all time?

    John “Paddy” Driscoll: guy did it all

    Pat Tillman

    Larry Wilson

    i tried to also include one person from each city they played in. like the rams I feel like each city they played in deserves its own four people, but maybe that’s also because there are so many greats

  34. musicman495 says: May 14, 2013 10:48 PM

    Off the top of my head:

    – Larry Wilson
    – Dan Dierdorf
    – Roger Wehrli
    – Larry Fitzgerald (Catch from Kurt Warner in SB 43 was one of most electrifying plays I have ever seen.)

    As a Skins fan I miss playing the Cards twice per year. I always respected the likes of Jim Hart, Roy Green, and Terry Metcalf. Will never understand how they gave up on Ken Harvey, who went on to become one of the 70 Greatest Redskins.

    final spot is a tossup between Warner and Boldin

    On a side note I completely respect Pat Tillman for leaving the NFL to follow his dream and giving up his life for his country (regardless of the circumstances). He played for 4 seasons and had 1 really good season. Maybe the criteria for inclusion needs to be defined, but I honestly am only looking at production. If we are looking at other criteria then there are plenty of other guys who aren’t great players who could be considered for their respective team’s hall of fame. At this point should we be looking at anything other than production?

  61. steelersteven says: May 15, 2013 12:08 AM

    There cannot be a list that does not include Pat Tillman.

    As for “one of the most electrifying plays”, I remember James Harrison returning an interception for 100 yards in SB 43. One of the best plays ever and the best play in Super Bowl history, hands down.

    Cards fan since about ’75, those Coryell Cardiac Cards teams got me hooked. Loved the unis too.

    Well, the first two are easy. Clearly Fitzgerald and Dierdorf are automatic.
    For the other two I’m going to wuss out and say its between Wehrli, both Wilsons: Larry and Adrian, Centers, Green, Boldin, Lomax, Warner, Lane, Matson, J. Smith, O.J. Anderson, A. Williams, Hart, Trippi, Dockett, Bakken, Coryell, Whisenhunt.

    Longevity as a Cardinal is big with me for this.
    Warner would be a lock but he only played parts of 5 seasons in AZ. Same goes for Terry Metcalf who I idolized.
    Ernie Nevers wasn’t with Cards long enough either, I think only 3 years.

  66. twayward says: May 15, 2013 12:33 AM

  78. dioalice says: May 15, 2013 9:49 AM

    I see there’s a lot of mid-70’s Cards love. And I can see why Tillman’s name surfaces in the discussion, but based on skills on the football field, he’s not in the top one hundred.

    Of the 75 or so replies so far, it’s amazing how many left off Larry Wilson. He is the ONLY player that gets an automatic nod, IMO.

    All #1 draft picks

    All Super Bowl trophies

  89. kingdm8 says: May 15, 2013 12:20 PM

    As a lifelong Cards fan, I think these are the guys that should be included:

    1. Bill Bidwell, Sr.: Say what you want about his cheapskate son, but Bill, Sr. is an NFL HOFer who helped develop the NFL as we know it today. The Cards won their last NFL championship (I think it was 1947) when he was the owner. Without Bill, Sr. there would be no Cardinals franchise.

    2. Larry Fitzgerald: Not much reasoning here. He’ll go down as probably the greatest Cardinal ever and one of the best WR to ever play the game.

    3. Jim Hart: Still owns most of the team’s career passing records. He was the best QB to play an extended period of his career with the Cards.

    4. Larry Wilson: He is in the HOF as a DB and worked for years in the team’s front office until his retirement. There aren’t many guys that are as synonymous with this franchise as Wilson. He was one of the toughest DBs to ever play the game, once playing through much of a season with two broken hands. He’s one of the best three or four players to ever wear the red and white.

    Honorable mention: Stump Mitchell, OJ Anderson, Terry Metcalf, Don Coryell, Ernie Nevers, Dick “Night Train” Lane, Roy Green, Luis Sharpe (guy turned into a crack addict, but he was one of the best LTs in the game for years), Conrad Dobler, Dan Dierdorf, Adrian Wilson, Kurt Warner, Tim McDonald, Aeneas Williams, Roger Werhli.

  90. jconn1987 says: May 15, 2013 12:43 PM

    Amazing. Kurt Warner is going to be on 2 Mount Rushmores.

  91. Deb says: May 15, 2013 2:17 PM

    Actually, it’s not hard to fill the Cards’ Mt. Rushmore with great Hall of Fame (and one future Hall of Fame) players:

    “Night Train” Lane
    Jackie Smith
    Dan Dierdorf
    Larry Fitzgerald

    Warner belongs on the Rams’ mountain.

  92. sarrott says: May 15, 2013 2:52 PM

    Here are my top 10 nominees:

    Anquan Boldin, WR 2003-2009
    Dan Dierdorf, OT 1971-1983
    Larry Fitzgerald, WR 2004-Present
    Dick “Night Train” Lane, CB 1954-1959
    Charley Trippi, RB 1947-1955
    Kurt Warner, QB 2005-2009
    Roger Wehrli, CB 1969-1982
    Aeneas Williams, CB 1991-2000
    Adrian Wilson, S 2001-2012
    Larry Wilson, S 1960-1972

    Dierdorf, Lane, Trippi, Wehli, and L. Wilson are all members of the Hall of Fame and Cardinals Ring of Honor.

    Williams is in the Ring of Honor and should be in the HOF.

    Of the remaining 4 I could see all of them in the Ring of Honor, and possibly the Hall. (Kurt and Larry will both definately be in, probably on first ballot.)

  93. azcardsfan88 says: May 15, 2013 3:03 PM

    Growing up in Arizona this is the only team I have ever known and I have seen players just play the game with passion and dedication for the Cardinals. My 4 are:

    Larry Centers: Growing up, he was my favorite player and he just gave everything he had to the team and balled out every single play. He was such a weapon out of the backfield in the passing game and was the undisputed team leader on the ’98 playoff team.

    Anquan Boldin: His first game against Detroit with Jeff Blake throwing the passes and setting records on day one, he became an instant success. I have never seen a tough football player like him and he made Fitz a better WR by taking coverage away from him. One of the few great WRs I have seen with great hands, getting the tough yards across the middle, and just a pure football player who plays for the love of the game.

    Kurt Warner: Who will ever forget him playing the entire back end of the 2007 season with torn ligaments in his non-throwing elbow and still being effective enough to earn the job for the 2008 Dream season. He is the ONLY reason we made it to XLIII and he is the greatest QB the Cardinals have ever seen to this point.

    Larry Wilson: He re-defined how the secondary is supposed to be played. A member of the team while in St. Louis but will always be synonymous with the Cardinals.

    Honorable Mention: Pat Tillman, Aneas Williams, and Larry Fitzgerald

    Honorable mentions:

    And folks, PLEASE stop pushing for Pat Tillman. He was good, but not THAT good. And he was with the team for 4 years only, 3 as a starter.

    Be honest. We aren’t going to bring him up in the same conversations as, say, Ronnie Lott, so please just stop it. Stop it. Please.

    A patriotic, sad death should NOT be a free pass here. Donate to his foundation if you REALLY want to show respect to his memory.

    Just don’t try and guilt us into a revision of NFL history that is based on “feelings” about a player rather than his actual on-field performance.

    The Cardinals have a wealth of well known Hall Of Famers that it’s way too hard to pick just 4.

    Ozzie Smith
    Rogers Hornsby
    Bob Gibson
    Stan Musial

    Oh, excuse me. This is for the football Cardinals, huh.

    Matt Lienart

    1. Larry Wilson-Anyone who doesn’t put Larry in the top 4 doesn’t know much about Cardinals football. One of the greatest safeties to ever play the game. 52 career picks, 8 time All Pro selection, member of the NFL’s 75th Anniversary team. No brainer to be one of the faces on the Cardinals Mt. Rushmore

    2. Larry Fitzgerald-The current face of the franchise. A lock for the Hall of Fame. The greatest offensive player in the team’s history.
    Another lock for the Cardinals Mt. Rushmore

    3. Dan Dierdorf-HOF member. The best Offensive Lineman in the long history of the Cardinals

    4. Aeneas Williams-Its only a matter of time before Aeneas hears his name called and earns a spot in Canton. 8 time Pro Bowl selection.
    Team record 55 interceptions. His positive attitude and consistent play were one of the few bright spots for the Cardinals in the ’90’s.

    I understand people voting for Tillman. I feel the team has fittingly honored Pat with his monument at U of P stadium, his inclusion in the Ring of Honor, and having his number retired. I don’t think he deserves a spot in place of other Cardinals who accomplished more On the field as members of the Big Red.

    Yuck. Another franchise with a long, sorry history. But here it goes…

    Even if Tillman didn’t do as much on the field, this monument is about icons and the Cardinals shouldn’t be any prouder that someone represents them, than Pat Tillman.

    Surprisingly tough list to pick from, considering the dearth of great teams for the Cardinals franchise:

    Larry Wilson (Hall of Fame safety)
    Jackie Smith (Hall of Fame tight end)
    Roger Wehrli (Hall of Fame cornerback)
    Dan Dierdorf (Hall of Fame tackle)
    Aeneas Williams (Hall of Fame cornerback)
    Jim Hart (should be Hall of Fame QB)
    Larry Fitzgerald (will be Hall of Fame receiver)
    Adrian Wilson (might be Hall of Fame safety)
    Don Coryell (should be Hall of Fame coach)

  116. omniscient48 says: Jun 10, 2013 1:33 AM

    Consideration Now:

    Larry Wilson (Hall of Fame safety)
    Roger Wehrli (Hall of Fame cornerback)
    Dan Dierdorf (Hall of Fame tackle)
    either Jackie Smith (Hall of Fame tight end) or Jim Hart

    Consideration in the Future:

    Larry Fitzgerald (will be Hall of Fame receiver)
    Aeneas Williams (Hall of Fame cornerback)
    Adrian Wilson (might be Hall of Fame safety)
