Perhaps it's my age but I'd substitute George Allen for Hanburger on the Redskins Mt. Rushmore.
Even before Gibbs, George Allen brought winning back to Washington after a couple decades of mostly failure. That may have paved the way for Gibbs, who had even more success.
*EDIT* Great minds, Serv!
Hanburger is a good representative of the "Over the Hill Gang," as he was solid but not spectacular; pretty much the M-O of that entire group. But I don't think that qualifies him for Mt. Rushmore, personally - if you want a rep for that group and the first superbowl, why not Allen himself? He was more a symbol of those teams than anyone on them, really.
So with that theory no member of this organization deserves credit for anything but winning superbowls?To put George Allen (who won zero SBs) on the same level as Joe Gibbs (three SBs) is simply wrong. Two coaches and two players is a nice thought, but it does not reflect reality.
Good point. Monk's short days wearing shades of green should be a major factor in deciding one of the literal faces of the franchise.I like it. But I would simply change Monk to Darrell. His longevity and loyalty to a single franchise wins in my eyes.
