Last chance to vote for Cowboys, Redskins Mt. Rushmores


After weeks of nominations and voting, the process begins today.

On Monday’s Pro Football Talk on NBCSN, we’ll unveil the first two Mt. Rushmores, for the Cowboys and the Redskins.

Specifically, we’ll have our own — and we’ll separately unveil yours, based on the outcome of your voting.

The Cowboys’ finalists include (in alphabetical order) Troy Aikman, Larry Allen, Tony Dorsett, Michael Irvin, Jimmy Johnson, Jerry Jones, Tom Landry, Bob Lilly, Tex Schramm, Emmitt Smith, Roger Staubach, and Randy White.

For the Redskins, the final 12 are George Allen, Sammy Baugh, Jack Kent Cooke, Joe Gibbs, Darrell Green, The Hogs, Sonny Jurgensen, Bobby Mitchell, Art Monk, John Riggins, Joe Thiesmann, and Doug Williams.

After the unveiling, we’ll have some reaction and discussion and debate, with Erik Kuselias, Ross Tucker, and Shaun King.  We’ll also be joined via phone by Emmitt Smith, who has a pretty good chance based on current voting to be one of the Cowboys’ four winners.

    Cowboys: Landry, Staubach, Jimmy Johnson, toss up between White and Emmitt

    Redskins: Gibbs, JKC, Slinging Sammy, Toss up between Allen, Riggins, Hogs.

    Skins: Sammy, Sonny, JKC, Gibbs…I would like to see Monk and Green, but these guys represent the “icon” when it comes to the Burgundy and Gold.

  12. krenshaws says: Jun 3, 2013 10:43 AM

    Its not too late to nominate Jerry Jones!

  13. vtsquirm says: Jun 3, 2013 10:49 AM

    Sammy Baugh and Joe Gibbs are the two locks. None of the other QBs have the longevity. Give me Riggins and Green also. Monk and Jurgenson would be the alternates.

    Just put Haynesworth up for the Skins, that says everything you need to know about the franchise.

    I’m a Giants fan and I met Roger Staubach in an airport when I was a kid. Dude was total class. Shook my Dad’s hand. Took a picture with me. Kissed my Mom on the cheek and she was glowing.

    He will make the Boys Mt Rushmore. He’s like Joe DiMaggio.

    Please, somebody explain to me how Jerry Jones became a finalist here. I’ve hated the Cowboys my entire life but even I am offended on behalf of Cowboy fans that he made the list.
