Vote for your Jets Mount Rushmore
Eric Mangini named his newborn son after Brett Favre. At least Mangini didn't set it in stone.
When carving a permanent homage, you better make sure you choose the correct folks because forever is a mighty long time. That's why I have a feeling New York Jets fans will be wiser in selecting four representatives for a Mount Rushmore-style tribute.
ESPN is running 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 down to the top five before the ultimate quartet is chosen. You can see the 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 Jets.
While I wouldn't name a child after any of them, my choices would be Joe Namath, Don Maynard, Curtis Martin and Joe Klecko.
But this isn't about what I think. I want to know who you would choose. 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 Jets Mount Rushmore on Feb. 16, the scheduled date when ESPN.com will announce the top five finalists in the big poll.
