Pro Football Talk has been running a very interesting series this offseason in which they have fans vote on which players would appear on a theoretical “Mount Rushmore” for the organization.
The Kansas City Chiefs were up last week and so I thought it would be fun for us to take a look at the results and debate them right here on AA.
Let’s take a look at the group the fans chose:
Hank Stram, Len Dawson, Tony Gonzalez and Derrick Thomas.
This is a pretty good mix, I think, as it works in both some of the most well-known Chiefs of yesterday with two of the more popular players from the modern era. Now I know some of you old-timers will get up in arms but I think a Mount Rushmore started today should be half old school and half new school so I like this configuration pretty well.
That said, I don’t think you can have a Chiefs Mount Rushmore without Lamar Hunt being on it. I think it makes sense then, to take either Tony or Derrick off to add Lamar. Personally, I would remove Tony because he left whereas Derrick Thomas was a Chief for life.
The PFT crew also put together their version of the Chiefs’ Mount Rushmore. Florio picked Hank, Lenny, Derrick and Willie Lanier.
The well-produced video of the reveal is below. What do you think, Addicts? Who would you put on the Chiefs’ Mount Rushmore?
