Re: Saints' Mt. Rushmore

Name your Saints Mt. Rushmore nominees | ProFootballTalk
The ongoing effort to secure nominees for each team’s four-person Mt. Rushmore continues.

The NFC East is complete, and we’re now moving on to the NFC South.

We’ll start with the Saints, since that’s the only team from this quartet to win a Super Bowl in the last decade. List below some names for us to consider.

We’ll eventually fashion a list of eight finalists, where you can vote on four of them.

Roaf, Jackson, Manning, Payton, Brees ... it pays homage to Saints history, the HOF selectees, the SuperBowl era Saints ... little bit of defense, a little bit of offensive line & best coach in there for good measure also, .

You have to remember that Benson originally bought the Saints in '85 when it was strongly rumored that the other parties interested in buying the Saints were planning on moving the franchise to Jacksonville.
Not enough credit goes to Governor Edwards who brokered that deal, put state/public funds, tax concessions, etc forward to guarantee the sale value provided Benson agreed not to move the team...

After Katrina, Paul Tagliabue, who Benson had been an adversary of Tagliabue since Finks' candidacy to challenge for the Commissioner's job, put money forward to assist in reconstruction of the market and indirectly instructed Benson in Public Forums that the NFL wasn't going to condone the Saints moving in the region's hour of need...

The saavy businessman he is - no dispute there...

But to threaten to relocate the team, taking advantage of the Post-Katrina environment was, at the very least, bad form...

But to put him among the "honored" of the franchise is disingenuous...

Re: Saints' Mt. Rushmore

Just a thought, should we segment the Rushmore into two sections, one on the field and one off? maybe have the players beneath and the non-players in a rock-encased suite looking down on them?

Re: Saints' Mt. Rushmore

I can't get behind putting a kicker on that version of Rushmore. Even if it is Morten Anderson.

For me, it's Archie, Drew, Dulymus, and R. Jackson.
