The full Redskins Mt. Rushmore

So if you miss Pro Football Talk when it airs on NBCSN and choose not to watch the video posted later in the evening, you have to wait a day to see the Mt. Rushmore results.

If I remember to post the results the next day.

So far, I’ve remembered to post the results for the first two teams.  First Cowboys, now Redskins.

The four who made it onto my version of the stone-headed sculpture, are Joe Gibbs, Sammy Baugh, Darrell Green, and The Hogs.  PFT Planet agreed with three, choosing John Riggins over the men who blocked for him.

Gibbs appeared on 76 percent of the ballots.  Green on 60 percent.  Riggins on 56 percent.  Baugh on 48 percent.

Next was Art Monk at 40 percent, following by the Hogs at 32 percent.  The voters gave Joe Theismann more fits than his prostate; he finished on only 20 percent of the ballots.

  1. That looks good to me.

    No harm in excluding Joey T. A lot of us couldn’t stand to listen to him when he was an active player and it’s gotten even worse since he retired.

    Theismann definitely had a few good years, and I do think he earned his NFL MVP award, but if there’s going to be a Redskins’ QB on the Mt. then it’s gotta be Slingin’ Sammy.

  2. As a Redskins fan I’m a little ashamed that Baugh finished 4th of 4 on this list. He should’ve rivaled Gibbs for the #1 spot.

  3. Can’t see Riggins over Sonny – Sonny is like Mr. Redskin.

    Hogs – thought that was a cop-out. If you’re only going to have four heads, you should only have four people.

    Joe Gibbs, Sammy Baugh, Darrell Green are no brainers, but the fourth should have been Sonny.

  4. I must have missed someting. If Riggins was on 56% of ballots and The Hogs on only 32% of ballots, why are The Hogs in, but Riggo out? Like I said, I probably don’t really understand how this was tabulated, but any list of anyting Redskins that doesn’t contain Riggo is kind of a sham in my eyes.

    Oft is the Washington redskins of websites. Our tradition canopy be matched.
    ——————————————————–
    What’s a “tradition canopy”? Is that something that you hide under, like the rock that you usually crawl out from under??

  6. “If Riggins was at 56% & The Hogs at 32% how is it the Hogs are on the mountain face & not him?”

    I dunno…um…maybe they gave each Hog 32% and decided that they were on 128% of the ballots.

    New math…(shrugs)

  7. Like the guys above, PFT has its own form of mathematics if Riggins gets a higher % of the vote but The Hogs root him out of the spot on the mountain. Maybe PFT was using some of those old Florida voting machines.

  8. You are completely correct to include the HOGS. Jacoby and Grimm were part of all 3 of the Redskins superbowl wins. There were different QBs, RBs and WRs, but the HOGS were the essential ingredient, that opened holes and wore out opposing defenses! Maybe include wizard GM Bobby Beathard too.

  9. As a Redskins fan I am a shame that we did not vote GEORGE PRESTON MARSHALL IN. HELLO THE FOUNDER OF OUR BELOVED REDSKINS SHAME ON YOU SO CALLED REDSKINS FANS. AT LEAST YOU GOT MR. REDSKIN RIGHT IN SAMMY BAUGH. ALSO KNOW AS THE BEST FOOTBALL PLAYER EVER TO PLAY IN THE NFL. AND FOR YOU IDIOTS THAT DON’T KNOW WHAT IAM TALKING ABOUT. GOOGLE IT AND FIND OUT.!!!!!!

    Where is RGIII’s knee?

    His knee is healing very well,thanks for asking.BTW we all know where Andrew Lucks pass’ will be ,in the hands of the defensive backs.

  11. Naming “The Hogs” is silly, since bout 15 different guys played OL during those years, and not all were great or even recognizable. Just name Russ Grimm or Joe Jacoby if you are going to do that.

    Do not understand the gratuitous slams at Theismann. He may be a hot dog, but he also had one of the best five year stretches of any QB this side of the HOF. I am sure even he would never choose himself as top Skins QB over Sammy and Sonny

  12. Don’t worry Skins fans… once RG3’s knee heals, all this name change stuff will pass. Most NFL fans don’t even know what happened at Wounded Knee anyway.
