Default Steelers Mount Rushmore

OK, let's have a little fun.
Say the Steelers are planning to construct a "Steelers Mt. Rushmore."
Let's limit it to 5 "figureheads."
What 5 Steeler figures of all time do you want depicted on it?

Here are mine in no particular order:

Noll - the original architect of the blueprint for football greatness
Greene - Noll picked him first, that says it all
Bradshaw - 4X SB quarterback has to be on it despite early difficulties
Lambert - I'm biased here I admit, but he was the "Face of the Steelers"
Hines - my toughest selection, all-time WR record holder, 2X SB champ

When I listed all of the names in contention, it's a daunting task to pick 5.
Let the debate begin!

Art Rooney
Noll
Greene
Bradshaw
Mel Blount

Lambert was more widely known but Blount was so pivotal back there for such a long time
the first four are practical locks if you know anything about the steelers

These guys epitomized what Steeler football is all about

Honorable Mention (in no order)
Rocky Blier: pure heart
Greg Lloyd: If he would of played 5 more years at the high level before his knee injury
Hines Ward
Franco - ran out of bounds in a time when you didnt - his toughness might come into question also
Jack Ham

I think it depends on the theme you are going with....

Mt Rushmore has 4 heads

Leaders:

The Chief
Coach Noll
Coach Cowher
Coach Lebeau

The Players:

Jack Lambert
Mean Joe Green
Rod Woodson
Terry Bradshaw


Best players / worst people:

Plaxico Burress
Santonio Holmes
Greg Lloyd
Ben Roethlisberger

My personal "steeler" hero's"

Mike Webster
Rod Woodson
Hines Ward
Jack Lambert

It's just not fair to list only 4 or even 5. There are so many great names of the steelers nation. To leave on of them off it would discount the value they had to the steeler nation. You could argue any one of these guys deserves to be on a steeler monument.

Myron Cope
Bill Cowher
Chuck Noll
The Chief
Jack Lambert
Franco Harris
Terry Bradshaw
Rocky Bleier
Donnie Shell
Dick Lebeau
Jerome Bettis
Hines Ward
Rod Woodson
Mike Webster
Troy Polomalu
John Stallworth
Greg Lloyd
Lynn Swann
Luis Lipps
John Henry Johnson
Jack Butler
Greg Lloyd
Mel Blount
L.C. Greenwood
Jack Ham
James Harrison
Ben Roethlisberger

Most everyone goes with the older guys and I get that to.. but I will say this... I think we are watching the greatest player to ever strap them up if you look at on and off the field... Troy P

1. Art Rooney
2. Dan Rooney
3 Troy P
4. Bradshaw
5. Joe Green ( this is the guy that really started it all and the reason the Steeler know how the Rooneys want them to act.. in his famous words to Rod Woodson ( We dont do that Shit here son ) Rods Answer " Yes Sir "
