PFT on NBCSN: Ickey Woods, Bengals Mt. Rushmore

If there were a Mt. Rushmore for touchdown dances, former Bengals running back Ickey Woods and his Ickey Shuffle would be a strong contender for one of the four spots.

Perhaps that’s something we’ll explore in the future, but, for now, we’re only putting them together to recognize the most memorable faces in the history of each NFL franchise. That leaves Woods to make a bid against 11 other finalists for a spot on the Bengals Mt. Rushmore on Tuesday afternoon.

Woods will be on hand to reminisce about his days with the team, which included a trip to the Super Bowl. Woods will also share his opinion about the four men who should be held up as the faces of the franchise, a list that could include names like Ken Anderson, Cris Collinsworth and franchise founder Paul Brown.

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

  1. Bengals: Paul Brown, Anthony Munoz, Boomer Esiason, James Brooks (God what a sad list)

    AJ Green could be on it someday

    Honorable Mentions:
    Issac Curtis
    Willie Anderson
    Corey Dillon
    Tim Krumrie
    David Fulcher
    Max Montoya
    Chad Johnson 😦

  2. Don’t forget James Brooks & Leapin’ LeMar Parrish

    & no mention of Ken “the Rattler” Riley is criminal negligence!

    & if Ickey Woods is in the running then you gotta include All Star-crossed Greg Cook as well

  3. C’mon. Ickey Woods had what one good year? Let’s be realistic here.

    Ken Anderson…Oh boy. I hit a roadblock after that name. I hate Boomer. Paul Brown was a coach there right? Oy Vey.

    A team needs 4 immortals for a Mt Rushmore.

    Ken Anderson
    Anthony Munoz

    Sounds about right.

  5. I admit, my list is tilted towards the offensive side of the ball, but who can argue my picks?

    Derrick Fenner
    Akili Smith
    Gus Frerrott
    Joey Harrington*

    *allright, I know Harrington wansnt a Bengal, but I couldn’t come up with a fourth name. Although i did heavily consider Peter Warrick

    Goooooooooooo Bungles!!

  6. I no I’m on the minority but Chad Johnson should be at least a candidate on this list. He accomplished more than CC ever did. Didn’t he lead the AFC in receiving for 3 or 4 years in a row?

    I know in his tenure with the Bengals he would certainly make the Mt Rushmore of that era.

    In his prime there was no better show than 85. Give him some credit.

  7. P Brown
    Chad Johnson
    Ken Anderson

    Honorable Mention:
    Ken Riley
    Isaac Curtis
    James Brooks
    Tim Krumrie

    It’s a shame. The Bengals have had a lot of good players but just not many for a long period of time. We could be talking about Coy Bacon, Joiner, Ickey, Greg Cook, Odell Thurman, Reid… So man what ifs.

  8. I wonder how much Ickey got for the interview? I went to school with a guy from Cincinnati not to long after Ickey was done and he swore you got your pie within 30 minutes or it was free and for a five spot he’d do the dance on your porch.

  9. Paul Brown
    Tim Krumrie
    Marvin Lewis

    I debated between Lewis and Wyche, and while I don’t always agree with Marvin, he has done a lot for our team and community. He’s been here for 12 years and changed the culture. He’s a class guy who understands his affect on the city. Sam Wyche’s efforts to integrate black and white players are well documented.

    Next in line would be Corey Dillon ( hof’er, could take over games) Dave Lapham (played on Super Bowl team in 88 and has done radio for nearly 30 years), maybe Collinsworth. Boomer and Collinsworth are both Bengal haters so it’s hard to put them on the list.

    I’m a bit too young to remember Ken Anderson but he has better numbers than Fouts who is in the hall of fame.
