Through the first seven Mt. Rushmores unveiled on NBCSN’s Pro Football Talk, the official show selections (i.e., mine) meshed with at least three of the PFT Planet choices. For the first team unveiled on Thursday, the Bucs, we agreed on all four.
For the Falcons, we agreed on only two: Matt Ryan and Jamal Anderson.
Still, the full range reflects a blend of players from the past and present and, given that Ryan is still on the front end of his prime, the future. My other two were Roddy White and Mike Vick; you went with Deion Sanders and Jessie Tuggle.
A seven-man race for two spots as of Thursday in PFT Planet voting eventually resulted in Ryan and Tuggle getting separation, leaving Andre Rison, Steve Bartkowski, Arthur Blank, and Roddy White behind.
Deion finished on 72 percent of the ballots. Next was Anderson at 48 percents. Ryan and Tuggle each showed up on 36 percent of all ballots.
