AFC South: Mount Rushmore

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky

Picking up on an ongoing ESPN project centered on the Mount Rushmore of Sports for all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, the AFC South Blog seeks to chisel the Mount Rushmore of the Houston Texans.

We need your input.

With just seven seasons of history, this is a young team and finding four to serve as permanent representatives may be difficult. We'll project if we must, choosing a face or two based as much on expectations as performance to date.

Everyone is eligible -- players, coaches, executives, broadcasters, mascots, ticket-takers and popular beer vendors at the home stadium. Who are the four best faces to permanently represent the Texans?

Chime in here or with a note to the mailbag with your thoughts.

I'm not sure if I will look to sort through your feedback and come to a conclusion at the end of this week or if I will wait until after the ESPN.com cut down on Feb. 15 when reader votes will select the five most impressive/significant states.

Meanwhile, if you've got any good, mountainous real estate (or a place where we can drop a giant boulder) near Reliant Stadium where we can get this thing sculpted, keep us in mind.

Picking up on an ongoing ESPN project centered on the Mount Rushmore of Sports for all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico, the AFC South Blog seeks to chisel the Mount Rushmore of the Tennessee Titans.

We need your input.

First, should the selections come from the Titans entire history, combining the Houston Oilers and Tennessee Oilers/Titans, or should we make it exclusively a Tennessee era tribute and look back only as far as 1997?

Second, who should be on it?

Picking up on an ongoing ESPN project centered on the Mount Rushmore of Sports for all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico, the AFC South Blog seeks to chisel the Mount Rushmore of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

We need your input.

With just 14 seasons of history, this is a young team but I suspect picking just four to serve as permanent representatives may still be difficult.

Everyone is eligible -- players, coaches, executives, broadcasters, mascots, ticket-takers and popular beer venders at the home stadium. Who are the four best faces to permanently represent the Jags?

Picking up on an ongoing ESPN project centered on the Mount Rushmore of Sports for all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, the AFC South Blog seeks to chisel the Mount Rushmore of the Indianapolis Colts.

We need your input.

First, should the selections come from the Colts entire history, combining Baltimore and Indianapolis, or should we make it exclusively an Indianapolis era tribute and look back only as far as 1984?

Second, who should be on it?

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.
