The people have spoken. Panthers fans, when identifying the four figures who mean the most to the franchise, included kicker John Kasay among them.
The PFT Planet selections for Carolina were unveiled on Wednesday’s Pro Football Talk on NBCSN.
But Kasay didn’t make it to the official Mt. Rushmore, as determined by yours truly. I picked Jerry Richardson, Steve Smith, Julius Peppers, and Sam Mills.
During the on-air segment, Ross Tucker pushed for Kasay and John Fox, Erik Kuselias lobbied for Fox and Wesley Walls, and Shaun King picked Cam Newton, even though he wasn’t one of the 12 finalists.
Smith appeared on 96 percent of your ballots, with Peppers on 52 percent, Mills on 48 percent, and Kasay on 44 percent.
Jake Delhomme came in fifth with 32 percent, followed by Fox, Kevin Greene, and Muhsin Muhammad, with 24 percent each. Richardson had 20 percent. Davis, beaten worse by the voters than by Michael Westbrook, brought up the rear with Wells and Mike Minter at 12 percent each.
