    art rooney, earl (curly) lambeau, george halas, jerry rice.

    whew it's really impossible to narrow it down to 4, leaving off guys like paul brown, lombardi, shula, al davis, wellington mara, & tons of players.

    Vince Lombardi and Pete Rozelle would be two of mine. I'd probably go with two influential owners for the others.

    How in the world do you guys expect to carve an NFL Mt. Rushmore without attempting to put Johnny Unitas and his trademark flattop on it I do not know. If the NFL has ever had a guy who would look good carved into the side of a mountain it's Johnny U.

    Now if you tried to put Peyton Manning on it you'd need to find a bigger mountain but that's beside the point. I'm not kidding, that boys head's like sputnik! Spherical but quite pointy at parts.

    Joining Unitas would be a coach, an owner, and a defensive player, or you could go "player, coach, owner, and commissioner" and add Rozelle. I could not take issue with that.

    I'd go offensive player, coach, owner, and defensive player myself. I'm thinking Unitas, Lombardi, Mara, and Butkus.

    Wait - all of the faces on Rushmore (one of my favorite movies BTW) are presidents so are we talking front office peeps or stictly players.

    Front office / Lombardi - Hallas - Rozelle - Stram

    Playa Playazz!! / Rice / Brown (Jim not Courtney) / Unitas / Reggie White

    Lombardi - The Coach,The Goal
    Unitas - The NFL and living proof that coaches couldn't do it alone
    Namath - The AFL merger and living proof that there is always someone better
    Rozelle - The Business,The Administrator,The Propaganda... wait sorry ... marketing is what we call it in America... The Marketing.
