The Steelers' Mt. Rushmore
 
PFT is taking votes, or recommendations, or something, for every team's Mt. Rushmore. In other words, the four greatest players in that team's history.

The only 100%, undeniable, indisputable player that would go on is Joe Greene. I'm not sure who else would sit beside him, though.

Thoughts?

Bradshaw, Noll, Art Sr, Art Jr

I believe it also is intended to include coaches and owners, so you probably need to make room for the only head coach to win 4 Super Bowls and The Chief

Agree about Joe Greene - my other pick to fill out the quartet would be Lambert - because the Steelers have had so many great players I base my player selections on those who became a symbol of the Steelers

Lambert was my likely #2 as well. I'd rather just pick players, personally, but that isn't up to me. I know the Rooneys and Noll would make it if we were considering everyone, but just picking players makes it more interesting to me.

All around:
Mean Joe, Lambert, Noll, and Art Sr.

Honorable mentions:
Franco, Dick LeBeau, Dan Rooney, Rod Woodson, Blount, Ben, and Cowher (just to see that chin carved in stone)

If we go with players only then I go with Greene, Lambert, Bradshaw (tough pick over Franco) and Troy (need someone from the other generation of Steelers that won a Super Bowl)

Yeah, it's tough to do. We did this at another board and I had a hard time deciding. I did the same thing you did there except Lambert for Bradshaw. How could you not want to see that toothless scowl carved into granite?

haha lambert would be easy to sketch on the mountain with no teeth and all.




but how do you leave off a 4 time super bowl champion
2 time super bowl mvp
the friggin blonde bomber!!!


plus try to keep 2 offense, 2 defense, 2 new school, 2 old school


im interested to see who ends up being picked. very tough to decide

I stand by my player picks, but I should have added TB to the honorable mentions list.

If this were easy, it wouldn't be worth discussing now would it? :drink:
