    Default Mount Rushmore

    As a change a pace from RG3 and draft scenario threads, I decided to pose the same question a friend of mine asked me.

    What 4 faces would you have adorn your Redskin Mount Rushmore? The parameters given to me was it had to be someone from the time you were a fan. Here is mine.

    Gibbs, Jurgenson, Monk, Hanburger

    I almost went Darrell Green. Thing is I've heard he has an attitude and ignores fans unless cameras are around. To me you must exhibit statemanship to be on the list.

    Gibbs would probably make everyone's list. How could he not? Here's mine (a bit more old-school):

    Gibbs, Allen, Monk, Baugh

    EDIT: whoops, I missed the parameters also (h/t Henry). Here's the ones from when I was a fan:

    Gibbs, Green, Monk, Fletcher.

    Honestly, I need a few more spots.

    EDIT: There were parameters? I didn't see the parameters!

    Gibbs, Green, Monk, Riggins

    There. I'll sleep better tonight now.

    If not for his parameters, I would have gone with Baugh as well. I thought long and hard about George Allen and Lombardi. Almost could have done one for coaches and another for players.

    This is easy for me, based on the fact that I was 7 when I became a Redskins fan.

    Monk, Sanders, Clark, Gibbs.

    I worshipped the ground "The Posse" walked on as a kid.

    Shuler.
    Connell.
    Haynesworth.

    FTW!

    If you're going go outside of "arbitrary parameters", THAT'S the way you do it.

    If it's from only the time of my fandom

    Gibbs
    Grimm (got to have a Hog. Shame on many of you)
    Monk
    Green

    That way we celebrate the Coach, the line, the Posse/Fun Bunch, and Capitol Defense...

    I could also deal with a fan time Rushmore of

    Mann
    Butz
    Grant
    Manley

    Or

    Jacoby
    Grimm
    Bostic
    Lachey
