PFT on NBCSN: Don Shula, Dolphins/Bills Mt. Rushmores

As we run through our series of Mt. Rushmores for each NFL team, we occasionally run into a person who would be a candidate for a Mt. Rushmore that covers the entire NFL rather than just one organization.

Don Shula is one such person. He has won more games than any other coach, owns two Super Bowl rings and guided the Dolphins to a 17-0 season to become the only NFL team to go an entire year without a loss since World War II.

On Wednesday, though, the topic will just be the Dolphins when Shula joins Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network to talk about the three men who should join him as faces of Miami’s franchise. Shula will talk to Erik Kuselias about his greatest strengths as a coach, his memories of players like Larry Csonka and Manny Fernandez and much more.

Mike Florio, Ross Tucker and Frank Wycheck will also be on hand as the Mt. Rushmore for the Bills is unveiled as well.

It all gets started at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

    Shula took his players strengths and built around them rather than just make everyone do things a certain way. the Griese Dolphins were vastly different than the Marino Dolphins and both had success. I love that.

    As a Bills Fan my fondest memories are of those Kelly vs. Marino battles in the late 80’s early 90’s. I wonder if the Bills Rushmore has OJ on it. Talent alone he is there for sure. 2K in 14 games is just ridiculous. But then factor in everything else and I just could not put him on there.

    Shula. Best. Coach. Ever.
    It’s really not even close when you look at his entire body of work.

    Shula > Walsh

    Screw ESPN.

    All-time great coach. He won a pre-merger NFL championship with the Colts then the Super bowls… Considering no coach has Super Bowl wins with more than one team, that is a significant and perhaps unique accomplishment.

    Shula> Your coach.

    Shula..Marino.. Csonka.. and Griese

    Shula is the greatest. Which makes it even more sweet that Levy kicked his ass so much. (17-6 record, incl. 3-0 in the post-season).
