With your input, ESPN has pieced together a Mount Rushmore of sports for all 50 states plus Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico.

Unsurprisingly, Peyton Manning is on two of them: Indiana's for his work as a Colt and Tennessee's for his college career at UT. He's one of 15 people on more than one.

Earl Campbell of the Houston Oilers, now the Tennessee Titans, is on Texas' Mount Rushmore.

One other AFC South connection: Johnny Unitas is on Maryland's Mount Rushmore.

You can view the full mountain range here, and vote for the five most impressive or significant states. Eventually one of them will be voted the best.

(And here is some banter on the subject from "1st and 10.")

As ESPN looks to trim the list, I think the AFC South Blog will take the concept and broaden it.

So look for posts the rest of the day soliciting your feedback for a Mount Rushmore of the Houston Texans, the Indianapolis Colts, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans.
