Default The Texans Mount Rushmore

ESPN blog is doing a piece called "Who Should Be on Texans Mount Rushmore."

He wants Texans fans to give him input.

With just seven seasons of history, this is a young team and finding four to serve as permanent representatives may be difficult. We'll project if we must, choosing a face or two based as much on expectations as performance to date.
Quote:
Everyone is eligible -- players, coaches, executives, broadcasters, mascots, ticket-takers and popular beer vendors at the home stadium. Who are the four best faces to permanently represent the Texans?

Chime in here or with a note to the mailbag with your thoughts.

I'm not sure if I will look to sort through your feedback and come to a conclusion at the end of this week or if I will wait until after the ESPN.com cut down on Feb. 15 when reader votes will select the five most impressive/significant states.

Meanwhile, if you've got any good, mountainous real estate (or a place where we can drop a giant boulder) near Reliant Stadium where we can get this thing sculpted, keep us in mind.
I think this is a hard call.

Andre Johnson goes on the list.
I think Bob McNair has to because without him there is no team.

After that, you can make an argument for a lot of players.

Andre Johnson for obvious reasons. I would have to put Mario Williams there along with DeMeco Ryans. Not sure about the 4th. I'd lean towards Chester Pitts or Kris Brown.

Intriguing Idea, to say the least.

My picks?

Bob McNair - As you said, there isn't any team without him.

Andre Johnson - Heart & soul of the Offense who has the whole league watching HIM now.

Chester Pitts - EVERY Game, it's as simple as that.

Mario Williams - Not as knee-jerk as it seems. Should have been a two-time Pro Bowler at this point and he hasn't reached his potential yet.

I didn't know non-players could be included. If that's the case, then McNair probably deserves a spot.

Default Re: The Texans Mount Rushmore

I'd like to go with Kubiak but as of today, even though I think it will happen that he turns this team into a winner, as of today, Pitts is more "historic" for the Texans. Put it this way, if the Texans don't get any better and Kubiak is gone 2 or 3 years from now and we never get a winning season or make the playoffs then his place in our history will be much smaller than we hope it will be. Chester Pitts on the other hand, win or loose, was here from day one and has played in every singe game since the inception of the Texans. That is historical already.

McNair, - without him we're not even having this discussion
Johnson, - the best player the Texans have ever had
Mario, - the draft pick that put us on the map
Pitts - history in the making in our short, short history

I'll go along with that. I'm a little seriousness I'd add Kris Brown, McNair, and Pitts. (crowded up there)

Showtime's honorary Rushmore? (players that can bring a smile to my face) Vonta Leach, Steve Slayton, Owen Daniels, Billy Miller.
