Default Mount Rushmore of the NFL

If you were commissioned to design a Mount Rushmore of NFL League greats (not players like in Dread's thread), who would you put on there?

Me? I'd start off with these three for sure:

1. George Halas
2. Al Davis
3. Paul Brown
4.

But then I have a hard time picking the 4th person. In my mind, it would have to be between: Lamar Hunt, Ralph Wilson, Pete Rozelle, Vince Lombardi, Don Shula, Art Rooney and possibly even Wellington Mara. Would exclude John Madden, because it wouldn't be right having two Raiders on the Mount.

Who would you put on the NFL's version of Mount Rushmore?

Jim Thorpe would have to be included.

If there are tourist restrooms in the park Bud Adams face in the urinals.

I think Tom Landry should be included.

Texas born and raised - UT and UofH
WWII volunteer.
Huge volunteer and leader to anyone around him.
All-pro NFL player while at the same time coaching.
DC with Lombardi as OC.
29 year HC with 5 SB appearances.
An inventor of the 4-3 defense then refined it in the flex.
Defensive guy who became an offensive innovator.
Innovated strength and conditioning programs.
Innovated statistical breakdown of opponent tendencies.

Great man and Texan.

Hey, he had 42 takeaways for your little yankee wuss team - you could cut him some slack.

Besides his iconic image wouldn't involve a star. It would be:



Johnny Cash may have been The Man in Black but Tom Landry was The Man in Hat.
