  • You get to carve 4 faces in the side of Mt. Ranier to best represent the Seattle Seahawks. Who do you choose? Not 3, not 5, only 4!!

    Mine:

    Paul Allen
    Steve Largent
    Cortez Kennedy
    Walter Jones

    Others in contention:

    I wanted to put the original owner on there, and I know it was originally owned by the Nordstrum family, but not sure of any individuals. Interesting fact that I did not know, Lloyd Nordstrum is the guy that signed the franchise agreement with Pete Rozelle guaranteeing a franchise in Seattle. He then died of a heart attack before the Seahawks played their first game. Kinda sad.

    I also considered Kenny Easley, Mack Strong, Hasselbeck, Alexander and a 12th man but they did not make the cut.

    If you asked me ten years from now I have a feeling i'd probably put Russell Wilson on there in place of Walter Jones.

  • I can't argue with it, but I'd add a fifth head...Russell Wilson.

    Yes, at the end of the day he will mean that much to us.

    Nope! Not allowed! If you add Russell you have to take off one of the other guys.

    I'd take off Paul Allen, since he didn't play.

    Allen - without him we wouldn't be talking about it.
    Largent - HOF
    Jones - HOF
    Tez - HOF

    Ask again in another 5 years and my answer might be drastically different. We may need another mountain.

    We do have Mt. Adams, Baker and part of St. Helens left. From my vantage point, Mt. Stewart would work too.

  • Mt. Stuart would be best. It's the largest mountain of exposed granite in the United States.
    Non-volcanic mountains are not common in the cascades. Bonanza Peak, nearby, is a
    higher granite peak but does not have the mass, or the beauty of Mt. Stuart.

    I know about this because many years ago a friend, Bernie Homes, fell and was killed
    on Stuart.

    I wouldn't modify your list at all but it may need revision in a few more years.

    Russell Wilson's going to be the 5th face on the actual Mount Rushmore 50 years from now, might as well make him the 5th on the Seahawks one too. It's only fitting.

  • Whoever did that Photoshopped Wilson Mt. Rushmore needs to get on one with the four greatest Seahawks faces. And while it's easy enough to put Wilson or some of the current guys there, they have a long, long way to go before I'd put them up there in place of our Hall of Fame players. Remember Tatupu anyone? My two cents echo tomahawk:

    Paul Allen
    Steve Largent
    Walter Jones
    Cortez Kennedy

    And Todd, the only way that Mt. Suckmore could be any worse is if you switched one of them out with K... K... Ken Behring. Damn, it was hard to even write that name down.

  • If I recall my history correctly, the original plan for Mt Rushmore included more faces but it ended at four because of lack of funding. Since we have Paul Allen at our helm we can disregard the lack of funding issue. I believe 12 faces would be appropriate.

    i think that Paul would be in the cloud, with his arms outstretched "ABOVE" the mount rushmore. Like in the cistine chapel reaching down to touch the 'Mortals" and say "you are the chosen ones"

  • At this point I put:

    Hasselbeck
    Walter Jones
    Steve Largent
    Cortez Kennedy

    Really hard choice between Hass and Allen (as Allen basically saved the franchise and is one of the premier owners in the league, if not the best)...but I had to go with the player.

    Wilson hopefully will be taking that spot in a few years anyway.

  • Since it's in stone and not capable of being erased you have to look up till now and the future,


    Largent
    Jones

    Two blank spots waiting to be filled, I chose two players that are from the two generations I think of fans and players that are HOF. Tez was crossed over between Largent and Jones, on playing alone he deserves it.

    I'm thinking about tomorrow as well and since we don't know what will transpire leaving vacant areas for the possible Wilson or Sherman face of this generation of Seahawk.

    So, how many points did Walt score, and how many key decisions did he make? He had one job and he did it at an extremely high level, but my list is based more on skill players and decision-makers.

    Look, Jones is clearly the best LT the team has ever had (and he is my number 9), but I believe the total contributions of those listed in front of him are more significant.

  • We have probably done this thread before, but it's May 29.. so .. whatever :D

    Say they announce tomorrow that outside of the VMAC there will be a Seahawks Mt. Rushmore built.. what FOUR faces would you want bestowed on such a lovely monument.

    My Four:

    Image
    Walter Jones

    IMO, the greatest Seahawk of all-time. Future lock to be in the HOF.

    Image
    Steve Largent

    The best Seahawk of the 80's.. and one of the more underrated WR's in NFL History. The Seahawk icon, Mr. Steve Largent.

    Image
    Cortez Kennedy

    Another no-brainer IMO. Probably the best defensive player to ever wear a Seahawk uni. 2012 HOF selection.

    Image
    Mike Holmgren

    This is where it should be interesting, as the previous 3 guys are "locks" in my opinion. I'm giving the 4th spot to Mike Holmgren, over guys like Easley, Alexander, Hass, Zorn, Krieg, etc. I know Holmgren has a lot of people on this board that weren't too high on the guy.. but pre-Carroll, he brought the Seahawks to their first Super Bowl and more success than any other coach in team history. He was not the best GM in the world, far from it, but his offense was downright beautiful when it was clicking.

    PC has a chance as well if he wins a superbowl.

    Maybe instead of Holmy, Paul Allen?
