It’s time to vote on the Redskins Mt. Rushmore

716524 Getty Images

Someday, the Redskins may change their name.  For now, that’s the name.

And that’s the team that needs to have its field of 12 finalists narrowed to four members of its Mt. Rushmore.

Maybe, eventually, the franchise’s Mt. Rushmore will consist of a combination of Redskins and Redtails or Rednecks or Redrums or whatever other word has Red in it.  For now, it’s Redskins.

The members of the Redskins’ Mt. Rushmore will be unveiled on Monday’s edition of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN, at 5:00 p.m. ET.

    Man if you were born after 1990 you are screwed here. WHO??????????????

  2. randywhite54 says: May 30, 2013 3:56 PM

    Gibbs
    Riggins
    Green
    Williams/Monk toss up.

  3. classyjacklambert says: May 30, 2013 4:00 PM

    This team doesn’t deserve a rushmore.

  4. logicalvoicesays says: May 30, 2013 4:00 PM

    The final mountain is Baugh, Riggins, Green and Gibbs. Case closed.mI can’t help but blush at how superior the Washington REDSKINS are at every aspect in comparison to the rest of the NFL. Put it this way, there are about 20 players who won’t make the cut, including RGIII, who would be on each and every other NFL team’s mountain. I imagine in Heaven, God’s mountain is all Burgundy and Gold. #TheWashingtonREDSKINSaredevine

  6. mazblast says: May 30, 2013 4:01 PM

    I would have voted for Charley Taylor, but you managed to leave him out while including that self-promoting idiot Theismann. No shortage of other guys to vote for.

  7. arrooo says: May 30, 2013 4:01 PM

    Riggins, Baugh, Green, Monk.

    Baugh, Jurgensen, Riggins, Gibbs

  11. panicatthedistrict says: May 30, 2013 4:05 PM

    To say that the Redskins don’t deserve a Mt. Rushmore is idiotic and classless. They’ve had a pretty colorful history over 80 years and a few cities, if I can recall.

    Baugh
    Gibbs
    Riggins
    Green

    Definitely logcialvoicesays. No player or coach has influenced my opinion of the Redtails more than this bozo. Easily should be on the Mt. Rushmore of Shame.

    This is an exercise in name recognition. I selected the 4 names that seemed familiar. I’m sure I heard them somewhere.

    The results of this poll will be great.

    Should have more than 4 but I voted Gibbs, Green, Baugh & Monk. HTTR !!

  28. bestbitter says: May 30, 2013 4:25 PM

    Baugh- One of the greatest players of the 1900’s (as voted by many credible outlets

    Gibbs- The only coach to win 3 Super Bowls with 3 different QBs

    The Hogs- Reason #1 Gibbs should be included on their Rushmore

    Riggins- The iconic play of the redskins existence, 4th and 1 in the Super Bowl

  29. evilglazers666 says: May 30, 2013 4:26 PM

    _____________________
    Riggins and Williams were successful because of the Hogs. In fact, Williams wasn’t even that good. Really all three of Washingtons Super Bowls were won by the Hogs.

    Basically, with no Hogs, Gibbs, Riggins, Williams, and Monk would not even be remembered today, and any list that does not feature them should not even count towards the vote as they clearly have no idea what they’re talking about.

  31. rufustfireflyjr says: May 30, 2013 4:31 PM

    jay, there are only 4 presidents enshrined on the REAL Mt. Rushmore, hence the number . . .

  32. gosfvr says: May 30, 2013 4:32 PM

    The team name needs to be on Mt Rushmore.

  33. davicusmaximus says: May 30, 2013 4:32 PM

    Allen, Baugh, Gibbs, Jurgensen.

    Allen – brought winning back after a LONG drought.
    Baugh – iconic star, champion from the early era.
    Gibbs – self explanatory.
    Jurgensen – iconic star, long time community and team guy.

    Name change subject is stupid and irrelevant.

  34. ambitoos says: May 30, 2013 4:33 PM

    The only thing I care about the redskins is when are they going to fix that field. No more injuries because of the poor condition of the field.

  35. shrshot says: May 30, 2013 4:33 PM

    Baugh, Gibbs, Green and Riggo

  41. cbgbs21 says: May 30, 2013 4:43 PM

    Sammy Baugh, Art Monk, Chris Hanburger, John Riggins

  42. gbmickey says: May 30, 2013 4:44 PM

    What sense does it make to put the hogs as a choice? If you are going to include more than one player then you might as well pick the all time teams.

  43. crazyhorsetamer says: May 30, 2013 4:45 PM

    I am First Nations and the teams name or the Cleveland franchisees names never bothered me.
    as for the the vote, I say,

    Gibs

    As long as Slingin’ Sammy Baugh gets on I don’t care about the rest. The first truly great forward passer in the history of the game. Played both ways AND led the league one year in both thrown touchdowns and interceptions as a defender. He has punting records that still stand to this day.

    If you are a young person and have never heard of him I think if you look him up you would be impressed by his accomplishments. He was a great person to boot.

    thirdistheworrd: The problem with putting “the hogs” on the team’s “Mt. Rushmore” is that the personnel changed over time and was in fact different for each of the three ‘Skins’ Super Bowl victories. Are we putting them ALL up there? As an earlier poster said, we might as well name an all-time team.

    I know I was born in the 80’s but my understanding has always been no Hogs = no Riggins.

  58. j0esixpack says: May 30, 2013 5:43 PM

    George Allen, along with Halas – were the ones who pioneered SPYING in football.

    The Cowboys filed a formal complaint against Allen for having personnel spy on their practices.

    If he’d coached the Patriots that would result in an asterisk against his name and automatic disqualification.

    PFT posters – most of whom constantly demonstrate that know nothing about the game – will of course most certainly nominate him for the team’s Mt. Rushmore.

    __________________
    The Hogs are listed as one person, so I kind of figured it was the idea of the Hogs as a whole. And even if we just count the original Hogs, they still deserve to be on the Rushmore. Bostic, Grimm, and Jacoby were the backbone of three Super Bowl winning teams. Also, voting the Hogs in automatically adds Riggo to the Rushmore as well (honorarily).

  76. twayward says: May 30, 2013 7:41 PM

    Agree with gibbsandflair and jfanale above:

    Baugh, Gibbs, Green and Riggins

    Baugh and Green are two of the 100 greatest players in NFL history. Gibbs’ accomplishment of three Super Bowl victories with three different QBs is simply remarkable. And Riggins was the Super Bowl XVII MVP and was named to the NFL 1980s All-Decade Team (and as good as the Hogs were, I don’t like shoehorning extra players on to a four-faced Mt Rushmore).

  77. kgforkg says: May 30, 2013 7:41 PM

    Why not Warriors or Red Warriors?……Just a thought.

  78. bigbadal21 says: May 30, 2013 7:48 PM

    “The Hogs” is not a valid candidate. That would be like “The Steel Curtain” in Pittsburgh. Plus you have to take the Mt Rushmore perspective of 4 faces. Plus would the likeness of “The Hogs” be in drag?

    Hogs are just behind. For all the Riggins voters, how many truly great seasons did he have with team? ’79, ’82, ’83 and ’84. Far less than Monk and Green.

  82. dreamfighter11 says: May 30, 2013 8:29 PM

    Charlie Taylor instead of the Hogs on your nomination page and he’d have gotten the vote. Dumb to put The Hogs on the list.

    Will you post this comment or delete like my last one?

    Baugh

    I second this comment. I’m not a REDSKINS fan either but Green is probably my fav REDSKIN of all time. Green was always a class act and an awesome player and he played with a tootsierole in his sock on gameday. In my opinion that’s pretty awesome. If he doesn’t get voted on the Mt Rushmore it would be a shame.

    _____________________
    The Hogs were, singlehandedly what made the Redskins a dominant team in the 1980’s. Without them, Joe Gibbs is just another coach and Riggo, Monk, and Green are just more Archie Mannings/Al Toons– great players who never really accomplished anything.

    Joe Gibbs is recognized as one of the greatest coaches in history because he turned three journeymen quarterbacks into Super Bowl champions, but Gibbs didn’t do that: Gibbs assembled the Hogs, and the Hogs turned three journeymen quarterbacks into Super Bowl champions. The Hogs took scrub running back Timmy Smith, who had amassed 120 yards through 16 games and paved the way for him to rush for a Super Bowl record 204 yards in the 1987 championship.

    So no, the Hogs are not just another great unit (although the Steel Curtain is along the same lines): the Hogs are the reason the Redskins even have a Mt. Rushmore to put names on.

  92. bluntsmokinskinsfan says: May 30, 2013 10:44 PM

    ____________
    This comment is so ridiculous it doesn’t even deserve a response, but just so it’s established, if we don’t count players whose stint with the team lasted three years or less, the Redskins have the 5th most players in Canton with 18. (In contrast, the Bears have 25, the Steelers have 21, the Packers and the Giants have 19). More importantly, Joe Gibbs return to DC was pretty bad, but there’s no way it can erase his legacy as the only coach to win Super Bowls with different quarterbacks, a feat he pulled ff three times. You also have to keep in mind that 2004-2006 was the height of Danny’s egomaniacal team-interference phase. If Gibbs had free reign over the team, he still probably would not have been overly successful, but it would have been better.

    Green. HOF, 3Superbowls. One of the fastest to ever play and played at a pro bowl level until 40. Forty!
    Baugh. HOF. The greatest QB of his generation.

    I like Riggo but he doesn’t stand up to those four. Charley Taylor and Sonny J would be the honorable mentions for me. Hogs? Of course could be #4 but I thought we had four individuals to pick.

Comfortable and familiar but boring and redundant and not at all enlightening….. .Our lives are less than the snap of a finger in the universe………

    Having grown up and lived in NoVa for 40 years before I moved north and being fortunate enough to have gone to MANY games at RFK/DC Stadium I’m attached to these guys for Mt. Rushmore

    Gibbs
    Darrel Green
    Riggo
    JKC Jack Kent Cooke

    Honorable Mentions definitely include many…Sammy Baugh, Sonny, Larry Brown, Charley Taylor, Hogs, Hogettes, Dexter, Mark Mosely…there were so many

    …Gibbs….strike……. *superbowls,…skins….Hahahahsha

  107. skinsrock says: May 31, 2013 8:37 AM

    These were some tough picks.. but I saw 3 SB victories in my lifetime & I have to give credit to those MEN:

    Joe Gibbs
    Art Monk
    John Riggins
    Sammy Baugh

    Tough to leave Green off the list but John Riggins, IMO had the most famous play in Redskins history when he broke 4th & 1 for a TD in SB 17, bringing the first SB to Washington.

    Where is Mark Rypien? Super Bowl XXVI MVP?

    Chiefs
    BlackHawks
    Seminoles
    Indians/Braves Tie

    When they all change their names then Snyder can think about changing his franchise

    Let me get this straight. You guys think the word “Redskins” is offensive but will throw the word “Rednecks” around as a joke. You’re walking a fine line. Pretty hypocritical.

  111. tmkelley1 says: May 31, 2013 11:25 AM

    Just to set the record straight, the Redskins colors are Burgundy and Gold, NOT maroon and yellow. The colors were chosen by George Preston Marshall himself. For more information, Google “What are the Redskins colors” to find the NFL Films presentation about the ‘Skins uniforms.

    How about Tonto, Sitting Bull & Jeronimo?
    Change the name!

    Do you speak for all Native Americans ……If not then let ot drop.

  113. cobrawolf says: May 31, 2013 11:34 AM

    I would select Coach Gibbs, Art Monk, Sammy Baugh a nd Darrel Green. Greatest coach of all time and Monk most under appreciated WR of all time.

  114. Always On Slightly Off says: May 31, 2013 12:49 PM

    Jay Schroeder
    Ed Rubbert
    Stan Humphries
    Jeff Rutledge

  115. bigbluetoo says: May 31, 2013 2:39 PM

    Who are these mutts….No SB for this team either…

    Gibbs. HOF, 3 Superbowls with 3 diff QB
    Monk. HOF, 3 Superbowls. One of best WR ever
    Green. HOF, 3Superbowls. One of the fastest to ever play and played at a pro bowl level until 40. Forty!
    Baugh. HOF. The greatest QB of his generation.

    I like Riggo but he doesn’t stand up to those four. Charley Taylor and Sonny J would be the honorable mentions for me. Hogs? Of course could be #4 but I thought we had four individuals to pick.
    ———————————————————————
    Gibbs. Agreed. No embellishment.

    Green. Agreed (the only guy I ever saw run down Tony Dorsett in his prime). On a very short list of the best CB to ever play in the NFL.

    Baugh. Agreed, although you sell him a bit short. Baugh is the best all-around player in NFL history.

    Monk is certainly worthy, but I would suggest that Jack Kent Cooke is more deserving. He was the best kind of professional sports owner. He made his own money. Then bought a series of professional sports teams. He built the venues they would play in.
    But he always hired the best people, paid and treated them well. He signed a lot of checks. Then he got the Hell out of the way.

    I do not understand the love affair that some DC fans have for George Preston Marshall. True he is in the HOF. But no black players until the Kennedy administration pushed him into a corner to trade for Bobby Mitchell from Cleveland. A reminder from 1945 to 1971- no divisional crowns-26 years. Just a note Washington is at 21 years since the last SB.

  118. skin94249 says: Jun 1, 2013 1:48 PM

    Charley Taylor needs to be on this list.

  119. skin94249 says: Jun 1, 2013 1:50 PM

    So does Sean Taylor, and Larry Brown.

  120. lawrinson20 says: Jun 1, 2013 4:23 PM

    Any Redskins fan voting for John Riggins over Larry Brown should be ashamed. Larry Brown would still be running if he’d had the Hogs blocking for him. Ken Houston was the greatest safety in NFL history. Ask Walt Garrison. And anyone else who played with or against him. The absence of Brown and Houston from the ballot is a Greek Tragedy. And where are Charley Taylor and Jerry Smith? They were kind of important in Washington Redskins history.

  122. the3taveren says: Jun 2, 2013 11:50 AM

    Here they are in order of importance to the team:
    Slingin Sammy
    Joe Jackson Gibbs
    The Hogs
    Sonny J

    One question though, why is Doug Williams on this list? One epic 1/4 on one game (even if it was the SB) doesn’t get you on this list. He was only on the team for like five minutes. Really two seasons, but I don’t think he even played 16 games. Why not add Timmy Smith or Ricky Sanders if you are putting people on the list that had a great SB and set SB records. Timmy Smith’s record still stands.

  123. ninerfan81 says: Jun 3, 2013 8:23 AM

    another tough list…wow…so why are they mixing players, coaches, and owners? Cooke shouldnt even be in the count, he should be an automatic as would Gibbs…followed by four players…that makes things a little easier to vote if i’m just talking players i’ll go with a mixture of modern and pioneers

    Sammy
    Hogs
    Sonny
    Green

  124. followme2boston says: Jun 3, 2013 8:29 AM

    The irony is that Mount Rushmore was a mountain sacred to Native Americans before they carved four white men into it. So putting some Redskins on it seems to to fit.

    You just can’t help yourself with getting in a remark about the name, can you Florio?

    You know, ideally, the media does not take sides on what it reports. It reports the latest news and let’s the public decide for themselves.

    That said, if you have an issue with a certain topic, come out and say it. That’s what’s called an editorial.

    But using your platform to make snide little remarks to subtly keep pushing this is to say the least….spineless.
