Redskins Mt. Rushmore pays homage to history


It was refreshing to see the outcome of the fan voting for the Pro Football Talk Mt. Rushmore.  Redskins fans gave appropriate respect to some of the most storied figures in franchise history.

Then again, with a dearth of star power or team success in recent years, there’s not much reason for the results to skew young.

To see who PFT Planet picked for the honor, check out the segment from Monday’s show, which airs every weekday at 5:00 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

Coming Tuesday:  The Giants and the Eagles, with a very close vote currently unfolding for the fourth spot on the Philly Mt. Rushmore.

    They went old school because there’s no one worth putting on the team in the modern era (ie., last 15 years).

    True story, the skins have been terriboo. HTTR

    I agree with the dearth of star power over the last 20 years. Has been a sad franchise for a while. And I live in DC.

    Thank you for changing your videos to a format viewable on my iPad!!!

    Good Job PFT. You are the Washington Redskins of websites. Simply put, best of the best. Everyone watch the video, they got the mountain correct for the most part. The Redskins are better than your favorite team on and off the field. #BurgundyandGoldStandard

    Doesn’t matter, they all suck anyways.

    No star power or success in rent years?!?!? To heck you say according to some fans trumping their horn their the greatest ever or so they would like to think..

    Larry Brown not even making the “list” is a travesty. That man gave his heart and soul to the skins. Busted up, bloody, hurtin, that guy came to ball. SMH

    Thanks, Ross Tucker, for your contribution that the several thousands of voters “got it wrong” when they didn’t vote for the hogs. Glad to know your opinion trumps all. If you look at the O-lines through those 3 SBs, they are largely different players. So the one constant through those 3 SBs was Joe Gibbs, not the hogs….and of course Joe made the list. Besides, last time I checked Mt. Rushmore was comprised of 4 individuals.

    The fact that Baugh was voted 4th is shameful.

    As he said, Baugh is probably on the NFL Mt. Rushmore.

    Not for all those amazing records. He essentially was the first guy to consistently use the forward pass.

    The NFL looks like it does today cause of Baugh.

  16. twilson962 says: Jun 4, 2013 8:18 AM

    The Hogs? Really guys?!? How do we leave off Riggo or Art Monk, over a GROUP OF GUYS.

    Cmon Redskins Nation.

  17. ninerfan81 says: Jun 4, 2013 8:35 AM

    Slinging Sammy Baugh was a video game…we didnt have to see him play we can just read and take a few things into account and you’ll know that what he did will never be done again playing 3 ways.

    Please publish the “winners” in text.

    1. I am one of the biggest Hogs fans around (I have an athentic Jacoby #66 jersey, I named my dog Jacoby and feel very strongly that Jacoby should be in the HOF), but I don’t get The Hogs as a group on the Skins Mt. Rushmore. Especially when the only 2 constants starting for The Hogs threw those 4 SB’s were Jacoby and Bostic.

    2. Riggins not on the Mt. Rushmore in the place of The Hogs is simply a joke. Next to Baugh who produced on the field in a bigger moment than Riggins? That 4th and 1 run for a TD is the greatest moment in Skins history.

    3. And holy crap at Shaun King these days. Or was that Warren Sapp?

  20. snarcasms says: Jun 4, 2013 11:55 AM

    Any list of top Redskins without John Riggins, is simply invalid.

  21. geemoney713 says: Jun 4, 2013 1:24 PM

    Hey “ravensdominate”, Redskins beat the Ravens this year. Oh, and your role model Wale is a huge Skins fan. Way to be a frontrunner from California. Let me guess, you used to be a Pats fan?

  22. heathshuler says: Jun 4, 2013 1:54 PM

    why don’t you use youtube for your videos?

    Good grief- Mt Rushmore for this team-maybe create a sphinx-since that is how long it has been since they last won a title-21 years and counting-my God that was before free agency-4 presidents, 5 speakers of the house and 3 popes ago.

  25. lagg1 says: Jun 5, 2013 4:42 AM

    Hey geemoney- yes Washington beat the Ravens this year and you beat us in 2000-you must be our good luck charm-because we won a SB both years. Thanks I’ll take that every year.

  26. skins1970 says: Jun 6, 2013 6:00 PM

    Shaun King is a idiot, It doesn’t matter if he didn’t see Sammy play all he has to do is look at the record books and see how great he was. I would put Art Monk on the list instead of the Hogs. He is was the best WR in the NFL in the early 80’s before Jerry Rice came into the league in 1984.

  27. sexpanther85 says: Jun 9, 2013 12:54 AM

    Sammy Baugh, John Riggins, Art Monk, Darrell Green.
