I really don't care much for ESPN's new sports Rushmore routine, but Tirico & Van Pelt brought up something interesting today.

Try to think of a Rushmore for your team. What four faces would go on the Steelers Rushmore? They warn, and I agree, that it is an excessive in futility.

And...

... it IS the offseason.

I am watching ESPN right now, and they just revealed who would be on the PA Rushmore...did you happen to see it? The faces were....Joe Paterno, Mario L, Roberto Clemente, and Wilt Chamberlain.

For me the Steelers Rushmore would be:

Mean Joe Greene
Franco Harris
Jack Lambert
Terry Bradshaw

Art Rooney - started it all
Joe Greene - really is the picture of what a Steeler player should be
Chuck Noll - great coach that led to many other great coaches
Dan Rooney - made the team great & held the fort for so many years

Any other player other than Joe Greene really has its ups & downs and is impossible to choose between the rest.

The more I think of it, there's no way to just have one Mt Rushmore. We'd at least have to have 3 - one for owners/coaches, one for offense, one for defense.

With that in mind:

Owners/Coaches Rushmore:
Art Rooney
Dan Rooney
Chuck Noll
Bill Cowher

Offense:
Bradshaw
Franco
Ben
Ward

Defense:
Lambert
Greene
Shell
Woodson

Nothing against Shell----I LOVED watching him crack Earl Cambell's ribs...but I might be in favor of Troy instead...

You could split up the Defense Rushmore into:

D-line:
Greene
White
Hampton (but you gotta show his gut, not just his face!)
Keisel or Kimo

LBs:
Lambert
Ham
Harrison
Joey or Greene or ? (many good choices)

DBs
Troy
Blount
Shell
Woodson

there are way to many great players to justify picking just 4

All Time (Steeler Rushmore)
Art Ronney (The Chief)

I tried to pick the 4 most important but couldn't. It's an "excessive" in futility..... or rather and exercise in futility. There's just too many to choose from.

I like these four as well. They are the ones that pretty much started the Steelers winning traditon. I would like Noll in there too, but don't know who I would remove to get him in there.

Any list that doesn't have " The Chief " on it doesn't count.

Ah, yes. Touche, sir.

I also agree that it's too hard for me.

The Chief, however, is my only lock.

Is this a "Steelers Rushmore" or a "Pittsburgh Sports Rushmore"?


Steelers: Rooney, Lambert, Greene, Bradshaw

Pittsburgh: Clemente, Bradshaw, Lemieux, Greene


Tough call either way to narrow it down to four.
A lot of names that would be hard to argue against going in either list.

Too Many to pick from.

Possibles for me

Past
The Chief
Lambert

Rooney 6 rings +
Noll 4 rings
Bradshaw 4 rings
Roethlisberger 2 rings +

Without those 2 QB's we don't win.
Steel Curtain Def is a unit hard to pick anyone guy, especially after watching the docementary where Mike Wagner was the host.

Or we just list:

Steelers

In Steel, get rid of the rock, lol.
