We started the Mt. Rushmore process with a quartet of longstanding NFL franchises. On Wednesday, the teams on which we’ll focus will both be relatively more recent.
The Saints, founded in 1967, and the Panthers, who joined the NFL in 1995, will see their four most significant persons in franchise history named on Wednesday’s Pro Football Talk on NBCSN.
You can still vote on your favorite Saints, but if it were an election we’d officially call it. The Panthers are the only team that has generated fewer than 50,000 votes, which has allowed a kicker to claim a spot. For now.
Maybe the Panthers haven’t accomplished enough to justify four non-kickers to make it. Maybe a kicker truly deserves it. Either way, vote now or forever hold your peace/piece/pee.
