Vote for your Bills Mount Rushmore
The Buffalo Bills are on a nice run when it comes to accumulating Pro Football Hall of Famers in recent years.
Let's chisel out a spot for the best of the best.
ESPN has mounted an ambitious campaign to determine the sports Mount Rushmore for all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico.
After 10,000 submissions from ESPN.com readers, each Rushmore has been determined. The list will be narrowed to the top five before the quintessential quartet is chosen. You can see the complete list and vote here.
To play off that theme, I'm asking visitors to the AFC East blog to name their favorite team's Mount Rushmore.
We're looking for the four legends you believe best symbolize the Bills.
My choices would be Jim Kelly, Bruce Smith, Marv Levy and O.J. Simpson. I know. Insert your carving joke here.
I might have added Steve Tasker or Andre Reed instead of The Juice, but that would mean the Bills Mount Rushmore would all come from the same team, and that's kind of sad. There should be different eras to honor.
I also thought about going with an all-quarterback foursome of Kelly, Joe Ferguson, Jack Kemp and ... well, that's where I ran into trouble. Doug Flutie?
No matter. I want to know what you think. Leave your suggestions in the comments section below or drop a note into my AFC East mailbag.
I'll tabulate the results and deliver your Bills Mount Rushmore on Feb. 16, the scheduled date when ESPN.com will announce the top five finalists in the big poll.
