Harvin’s hip injury could require surgery

Percy Harvin AP

For plenty of players who land on the physically unable to perform list, it’s a short-term stay that has no lasting impact on the player or the team.

For Seahawks receiver Percy Harvin, that may not be the case.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that his hip injury could result in surgery.  As NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has reported (and as PFT has confirmed), Harvin has a “slight tear” in the labrum.  We’re told that the injury was spotted in an MRI performed on Thursday.

The team wants Harvin to try to practice and play with the injury (along with non-surgical treatment, of course).  Harvin intends to exercise his right to a second opinion, and arrangements currently are being made for Harvin to be evaluated by a top expert in the field.  (Why do we have a feeling that the names “James” and “Andrews” eventually will emerge in connection with this story?)

Depending on the second opinion, Harvin may ultimately have surgery.

It’s not bad news yet for the Seahawks.  But it eventually could be.

    Great trade guys, thanks!

    Continue getting used to it. Too bad Percy you were good. Now just injury prone.

  5. eacuna05 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:04 PM

    Uh oh! Looks like Precious Percy, Clemons, and B. Irvin might miss that big week 2 matchup.

    But tell me again, 12th man, how you still think you can overtake the Niners for Div. Champs?

  6. tazzard says: Jul 25, 2013 3:05 PM

    LOL, the Hawks were suckered by the Vikings again!!!!!

    Stay classy, Seattle.

    You hate to see guys go down this early. Harvin is unlucky when it comes to injuries. Hopefully it is not that serious for him. This coming from a 49ers fan.

  12. alexandercr8 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:09 PM

    Percy is out with an injury? Shocking.

  13. nyninerfan says: Jul 25, 2013 3:09 PM

    That’s terrible news. (snicker)

  14. rtl1984 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:10 PM

    Wow, if Harvin loses significant amount of time, then the Vikings pulled a fast one on the Seahawks.

    However, Seattle has a lot of weapons to work with.They’ll be fine with or without him.

    Spielman is a Magician.
    Or maybe Percy’s finally getting “what comes around?”

  21. koolaidcircusbeast says: Jul 25, 2013 3:12 PM

  23. gergie1957 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:13 PM

    He’s a great reciever, hope it works out for him. He will be missed in Minny.

    With all the high and mighty talk from these 49ers fans, you’d have thought they’d have won something recently. Oh yeah, that’s right, 20 years ago!

  26. painsyndicate says: Jul 25, 2013 3:14 PM

    Seachicken fans must have a migraine over this news. You dummies didn’t learn when we stole Steve Hutchinson from you so we caught you with your pants down again. Just signed our 3 first round draft picks today.

    Thanks again.

  27. eclipsingbinary says: Jul 25, 2013 3:15 PM

    At least it’s an injury and not his attitude.

  28. willbow5253 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:15 PM

    Seahawks paid this dude a lot of money, they better let him do what’s best for the long term. That said, I’d much rather watch a week 2 game with both Harvin and Crabtree. Now it might be neither.

  29. sikoix says: Jul 25, 2013 3:15 PM

    As a Viking fan, I love guys like Percy and Winfield and want to see them be successful. But this headline made me smile more than I’d like to admit. Seems like déjà vu.

  30. paulitik74 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:15 PM

    So is Seahawk training camp a Rehab center for ex-Viking WRs?

  31. filthymcnasty1 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:16 PM

    He’s not nearly as dynamic in a walking cast.

  32. moeman79 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:16 PM

    Slow your roll dude. Maybe you should concentrate on beating the Rams first.

  34. fyreandnice says: Jul 25, 2013 3:16 PM

    As a Niners fan, I hope he tries to play through it and the injury lingers instead of having surgery and coming back full strength in October or whatever.

    At least Sidney Rice never gets hurt…oh wait. :P

  35. deehypno says: Jul 25, 2013 3:16 PM

    Being a Niner all my folks wondered why I laughed at this trade and didn’t seem a bit worried. I say again, Ha Ha Ha. I love it!!!

  36. nygf says: Jul 25, 2013 3:16 PM

    I keep asking this when he comes up in the mock drafts I’ve done and will ask it again: is there anyone more overrated than this guy?

  37. jtabronco says: Jul 25, 2013 3:17 PM

    Harvin just screwed hawks, and now we understand why vikes wouldnt pay him, great athlete who cant overcome injuries, hawks have a migraine and vikes have smiles

  38. joey49er says: Jul 25, 2013 3:17 PM

    WOOOOOOOWWWW thanks vikes for taking the hawks draft pics and roster space and cap space lol >>>> go niners!!!!
    good job carol!!!

  39. ebr362 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:18 PM

    Why in the world didn’t seattle do a full body MRI on this injury prone guy prior to the trade?

  40. tcostant says: Jul 25, 2013 3:18 PM

    Maybe Seatle should have just made an offer to Victor Cruz as a RFA. They might have got him for less money and it would have only cost them one #1 pick.

  41. reesesteel23 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:19 PM

  44. tremoluxman says: Jul 25, 2013 3:20 PM

    Even though they’ve taken heat for the trade, the Vikings look like they solved a number of problems with the Harvin deal.

  45. maniccatastrophe says: Jul 25, 2013 3:20 PM

    As a Viking fan I was upset when he left but this is what you get from Percy. Outstanding talent good attitude when your winning and he is getting the ball. Always hurt and whining if you lose. The tale of 2 Harvins

  46. razorjeff says: Jul 25, 2013 3:20 PM

    Bravo Vikings, you pulled off the modern version of the Herschel Walker trade.

  49. 49erstim says: Jul 25, 2013 3:23 PM

    You hate to hear this kind of news. You’d have thought that they would’ve given him a thorough evaluation already. Had this been caught months ago it may not be a problem now. I hope my fellow 9er fans don’t delight in this news. We must all remember that these players are human beings too.

  50. pkrjones says: Jul 25, 2013 3:24 PM

    $25.5 Million guaranteed in first 2 years of his contract… he’ll play when he feels like it. I’m thinking he’ll be “healthy” enough to play in 2015. At least the Vikes will win at something this year.

  51. jerrykill4pres says: Jul 25, 2013 3:24 PM

    Cheech Harvin isn’t injured! He just spent 12 of the 13 mil on some Acapulco gold and smoked it all up to control his migraine issues and realizes that he best fake an injury for a while otherwise he won’t pass Rogers mandatory urine test. Especially since onterrio smith was busted with the whizzinator, cheech’s only help to pass is now gone!

  52. blackhawks2010 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:25 PM

    Cue the 49ers bandwagon….

  53. rexryanstoecheese says: Jul 25, 2013 3:25 PM

    Many recent American Medical Association studies have linked slight tears in the labrum with Adderal abuse…and the unexplained appearances of “Asterisk- shaped” warts on the faces of those inflicted..

    What a coincidence!

  54. donpisto says: Jul 25, 2013 3:26 PM

    Hope he’s able to play. When the Vikings go up against Seattle I was looking forward to see him get leveled by Smith.

  57. seahawksteven777 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:27 PM

    It’s funny because Percy Harvin PRACTICED during the OTA’s with the hip issue so it honestly can’t be that serious.

    We’ll see what this second opinion is but I think it’s just a ploy to get out of practicing.

  58. alldonesmith says: Jul 25, 2013 3:28 PM

    I knew Seahawks fans would be eating crow this season for all the ridiculous stuff they’ve been spewing since the Super Bowl. But I had no idea it would happen this soon.

  59. matttucker76 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:28 PM

    Yeah, ’cause no team in the NFL ever asks their players to play hurt. If the medical advice said that he flat out couldn’t and shouldn’t play, the team wouldn’t force the issue.

    Much as I would love to see Harvin in this offense, the ‘Hawks have depth on the receiver corps. He’s a great piece and would add very well to the team, but this isn’t a devastating loss if he needs surgery.

  60. clownsfan says: Jul 25, 2013 3:32 PM

    Sneaky Pete will just rub some adderal on it. SEA still my pick for NFC champ.

  62. banlarson says: Jul 25, 2013 3:35 PM

    Maybe Seattle can petition the league to have the Vikings give them back Cordarelle Patterson and next years 3rd, a 7th rounder and the $67 million they paid for Harvin.

  63. drstrangehawk says: Jul 25, 2013 3:35 PM

    It’s so cool when a team is realy good and could ne great that the haters scurry out from under every rock to take their shots and scrry back to the dark places they come from.

  64. allday38 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:35 PM

    First up 49er fans: You lost your #1 WR, we lost our slot guy. We still have Rice, Tate, and Baldwin. You have Boldin and……and…crickets. Enough said. All this hate must just be relief on your parts, happy you don’t have to deal with the headache ( no pun) of Harvin. Plus, I don’t think we had him last time we played either, that was a nail biter.

    As for Vikings fans: Really, really, you have something to say? Who are your receivers again? Plus just for fun, one name for you…Christian Ponder!

  65. mrgrant23 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:37 PM

  67. The Intrepid Traveler says: Jul 25, 2013 3:38 PM

    @eacuna05

    He’s just one of many weapons, icing on the cake if you will. You have an aged and slow anquan boldin, an injured and hobbled michael crabtree, a QB (and coach) who literally defines d-bag and can’t handle all his check downs and a te who can’t seem to live up to his own name. Add an aging defense to the mix and I think we’ll be ok. We were fine before harvin and something tells me we’ll be fine either way. As for irvin and clemons, we’re deeper and younger on D, not to mention bennet and avril, we’ll be more than ok there. Funny how 9ers fans act like they’re the class of this division when, since we joined in 2002, 9ers have won it 3 times and we’ve won it 5; the door is closing on you guys and it wasn’t even open for very long.

    So the real question is, whiners fans, how will you defend yourselves as division champs (as short as your reign has been, you like to act as if you’ve been there a lot longer than you have) against a team that’s faster, stronger and younger than yours?

  72. vikesfan4life says: Jul 25, 2013 3:42 PM

    I love the fact that he is going to “exercise his right to a second opinion” when most, if not all, NFL players will try to play through an injury. Percy got paid and now he doesn’t want to play. Dude will sit out half the year, collect a check and be a non-factor. I’m shocked… SHOCKED that he would resort to this type of thing.

  73. goldrush36 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:44 PM

  76. dmiller68 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:45 PM

    When I saw this article I figured the 49ers fans would be all over it. This answer is simple we will beat you with the same people we beat you with last year. Get over it, damn now I’m falling in to this trap.

    It is going to be interesting to see how many of you will still be around when you open the season 0-2. A very real possiblity. Heck to be realistic you could be 1-3 to start the season. You have a tough schedule this year. Check your attatude.

  79. cinvis says: Jul 25, 2013 3:50 PM

    Its the Seacheats… They’ll just inject him with some ‘adderal’ and he’ll be just fine… better than fine actually. Just teach him to crack the cup when he goes pee.

  80. iluvbears says: Jul 25, 2013 3:54 PM

    I feel for Percy, but I’m glad he’s a Seahawk & no longer a Viking. Hip injuries in WRs tend not to be a good thing for their long term survival.

  81. bk9876 says: Jul 25, 2013 3:55 PM

    I recall vividly MANY SEAHAWK fans coming on here and stating they have the BEST GM in all of the NFL during the off season for this pickup……

    A GREAT GM doesn’t take this risk on a player that has a long history of injuries and hold outs with a personality that has to make you wonder if he plays with any heart or is all about the benjamins.

    Welcome to reality HAWK fans!

  82. tramonisland says: Jul 25, 2013 3:56 PM

    Lol Harvin was your number one as soon as he was traded you tool. You don’t pay him that kind of money as a number two. Rice, Tate, and Baldwin? Haha pathetic. I will give you Rice. When healthy he is solid.

    Oh and keep hanging on a meaningless regular season win at home. That’s all you fans ever bring up as a pathetic benchmark for your success.

  87. tobis81 says: Jul 25, 2013 4:00 PM

    Look at all the 49er trolls who ran onto Bleacher Report as soon as this news broke… I guess not too many 49er fans have jobs, or lives, LOL… Probably just sit at home trolling the computer, and collecting welfare. I see one loser who’s all happy Irvin will miss week 2, and Clemaons, and Harvin may as well. That just proves they think the only way try can beat us, and win the division is if half of our roster is injured. Kinda pathetic, but what do you expect from a bunch of pitiful haters, LMFAO!!!

  88. glac1 says: Jul 25, 2013 4:01 PM

  89. mrseaballs says: Jul 25, 2013 4:01 PM

    Seattle still has the fire-power to beat anybody in the league. The only issue was pass-rush and that should be fixed.

  90. mathomp3 says: Jul 25, 2013 4:03 PM

    Niners fans, remember when the Hawks crushed you without Harvin last year? How’s Crabtree doin?

  91. obmig says: Jul 25, 2013 4:03 PM

    His only good options are to sit and let it heal or have surgery to repair it. Why would they want him to play with a torn labrum when they are on the hook for $12/ year?

  92. foosball1984 says: Jul 25, 2013 4:04 PM

    “OVER-RATED”….clap..clap..clap….”OVER-RATED”

  93. tobis81 says: Jul 25, 2013 4:04 PM

    BTW, 5 Hawk players started camp on the PUP list… Harvin, Clemons, Turbin, Miller, and Scruggs… Timer is in the non football injured list… Does this mean any of these players won’t participate later in camp, or be ready to rock for the reg season??? NOPE!!!!! Well, except Scruggs… Watching all these corny, pathetic vultures act as if Harvin, or any of them will miss significant time is quite amusing, LMFAO!!!

    Karma for making fun of the Crabtree injury..

  97. vikings28 says: Jul 25, 2013 4:06 PM

    This is the story of Percy. He’ll never play 16 games and that dude has got fragile ankles. Great player, when healthy.
    Rumors out of MN were if we signed him and gave him 20 million guaranteed, he’s not going to play. he was playing for money and once he got paid, he’ll not play because he’s got money and that’s his #1 factor.
    I think this may be the reason vikes sent him to IR…..
    It wasn’t bad enough that he couldn’t play, but in order to trade him, he needed rest so he could pass a physical. The wear and tear on the hip throughout the season wouldn’t have given the vikings the option of trading him.

    @NinersFans, You should keep in mind that Percy Harvin was not present last year when we bent you over our knee and spanked you. What was the score again? Also, I love that Niners fans are searching for Hawks news. Be careful ladies, it’s DangeRuss around here! HAHAHA! See you Sept 15th ;)

  99. johnny364 says: Jul 25, 2013 4:08 PM

    If he’s out it’s not a big deal. We still have all of our receivers from last year Percy was just a bonus.

  100. painsyndicate says: Jul 25, 2013 4:08 PM

    Maybe Sherman can hook Percy with some adderall. I hear it works great for migraines.

    U mad bro?

    When I saw this article I figured the 49ers fans would be all over it. This answer is simple we will beat you with the same people we beat you with last year. Get over it, damn now I’m falling in to this trap.

    It is going to be interesting to see how many of you will still be around when you open the season 0-2. A very real possiblity. Heck to be realistic you could be 1-3 to start the season. You have a tough schedule this year. Check your attatude.

    You do realize the Niners beat the Seahawks last year too right? Typical clueless Hawk fan. Not surprising though.

    Damn it Niner fans, stop being so happy about this. Yeah it is good for the Niners, but you don’t cheer for injuries just because a guy plays for your rival. Unless they are to Richard Sherman, then the whole league cheers.

  104. fazzle1 says: Jul 25, 2013 4:11 PM

    If he does wind up needing surgery, this will probably put the Niners back on top of the division again. Lynch and Russell will still keep em a double digit win team though, obviously

    ——————–

    Wait what? He’s had one season where he was injured and is 24. Y’all sound as if he misses multiple games every year. Migraines aside injuries have only kept him from playing last season. McFadden is injury prone. Harvin is approaching that status but is not there yet.

  107. blvckhvwks says: Jul 25, 2013 4:14 PM

    These 9er fans are ecstatic right now. Take it easy ladies it’s not like our only good wr tore his achilles or anything loooooool

  108. dcviking says: Jul 25, 2013 4:16 PM

    Was this the same injury that Sidney Rice had in his last year with the vikings? If so, it may be better to just have the surgery and rehab instead of putting it off.

    Harvin is a great player, but he just seems like one of those players destined to nicked up his whole career. Fortunately for Seahawks fans, if you can get him in the game, it doesn’t matter if he has practiced or not.

    On the whole, Harvin might end up doing great things in Seattle, but I’m glad he is not a Viking anymore.

  109. bdiesel757 says: Jul 25, 2013 4:16 PM

    Man… Seattle fans are the worst… loudest mouths in the league… I guess that’s what happens when a never done crap franchise has a couple playoff berths… you’d think they had won a few Super Bowls or something… I was indifferent to the SeaChickens for a long time but their fans have definitely stirred a hatred in me the last few years…

  110. rcknrog11 says: Jul 25, 2013 4:17 PM

    OMG what a waste of anticipation and hope over thinking this guy was going to help our Hawks kick ass. Jeeze this is a huge let down! If Wilson and Co. still beat the Niners, ( notice I didnt disrespect the name) what excuses will the mudslingers sling then? Boy I still believe in Wilson and the boys so lets roll!!

    Go Hawks!

  111. nflpoker says: Jul 25, 2013 4:17 PM

    I don’t like it when players get hurt. Hopefully, the injury is not too serious. However, I have to admit Seattle has either got injured or yet to be injured players from the Vikings the last couple of years, in Sidney Rice and Harvin. The trade where we got Seattle’s first round draft this year, meaning Xavier Rhodes, looks to be a good one. Seattle has a really good team and I hope they give SF all they can handle and have a good year. Good luck.

    If you cant take it, dont dish it out.

    Normall I wouldnt enjoy an injury but after all the BS Pedhawks fans dished after Crabtree’s injury, I cant help but gain a smirk on my face :). Then again that could also be from telling these pedhawks that Percy was injury prone and being able to say… I TOLD YOU SO

    With all the high and mighty talk from these 49ers fans, you’d have thought they’d have won something recently. Oh yeah, that’s right, 20 years ago!

    ==================================

    SF was playing for the trophy, while your team was at home. SEA players would have given anything to be there, but didn’t make the cut.

    20 years ago or not, that trophy case ain’t empty.

    The originality on here is inspiring!

    PLEASE everyone…do keep the seahags, seachickens, cheathawks, PED jokes, etc. coming. They’re as fresh as they were days, months, weeks and years ago.

    Oh, and please also kindly continue to proclaim that Seahawks fans are the only fanbase in all of pro sports who:

    a.) cheers on their team
    b.) celebrates a big acquisition
    c.) enjoys a huge win over a rival
    d.) ocassionally talks trash

    because from the high and mighty attitude from just about everyone on here, apparently they are.

    I think fans from juuust about all 32 teams need to look in the mirror and take off their own rose colored glasses, because it’s laughable on here.

  118. fdugrad says: Jul 25, 2013 4:32 PM

    Well SHEEZ… does it need surgery, or is he going to play? These choices seem to contradict one another. Perhaps the “playing through” option is simply wishful thinking. If one is considering surgery, perhaps REST is the other option, however, PLAYING…I think I would obtain an impartial second opinion as well.

I see one loser who’s all happy Irvin will miss week 2, and Clemaons, and Harvin may as well. That just proves they think the only way try can beat us, and win the division is if half of our roster is injured. Kinda pathetic, but what do you expect from a bunch of pitiful haters, LMFAO!!!
    ————
    All I can say is that we won the division last year as well. A dimwit dullard like you can go to espn.com and check it out.

    probably because he wasn’t injured then. however, he was soon-to-be-injured, like he always is. that should’ve definitely come up in the trade or contract discussions.

  121. hooterdawg says: Jul 25, 2013 4:37 PM

    “At least it’s an injury and not his attitude.”

    The attitude is already brewing if the team asked him to play through it. Obviously, they don’t think it is serious enough for him to miss playing time.

  126. smcmurt says: Jul 25, 2013 4:50 PM

    As a Vikings fan I was upset to see Percy get traded because when healthy is is one of the best talents in the league, but on the other hand it was somewhat a relief because he was such a poison to the team and the coaching staff. I hope he doesn’t have to have surgery and is able to play, but I won’t feel bad at all if that is not the case because of his attitude towards the Vikings and because of the Seattle fans. I try to go to a road Vikings game every year and I went to Seattle last year and they are the worst and most obnoxious fans I have ever experienced. I would never go to another game in Seattle and I hope the Vikes beat their a$$e$ this year in Seattle.

The guys a joke with a ton of talent and doesn’t deserve any of it. No Heart Harvin is what they should call him

  129. prettyflyforawhiteguy1 says: Jul 25, 2013 4:56 PM

    HAHAHA – I’m a Packer fan absolutely HATE the Vikings, but the Hawks truely got hosed on this trade! I mean the arugably the WORST TRADE IN NFL HISTORY for the Hawks. Harvin has proven year in and year out he is fragile and injury-prone. The Hawks, reaking of desperation to catch a team they will never be as good as (9ers), waste some picks and salary cap room to trade for a guy who might be lucky to play 8 games. Looking like its even worse than that tho with this injury. It will be fun watching the Hawks continue to lose on the road while that Super Bowl trophy case remains empty. Win an important game first then we might respect your losing team.

  130. bpeterson464 says: Jul 25, 2013 4:56 PM

    Rice, Tate, and Baldwin are a good group of receivers, anyone who thinks other wise should really learn to do some math.

    If Wilson threw as much as say…Sam Bradford, those same receivers would have:
    Rice: 1048 yards, 10 Tds
    Tate: 965 yards, 10 Tds
    Baldwin: 512 yards, 5 Tds.
    And in total Wilson would have had,
    4365 yards, 36 Tds, and 14 INTs for a passer rating of 99.6. not too shabby since the receivers make up approximately 57% of the passing yards and 69% of the receiving TDs. WITHOUT Harvin.

    Also he’s likely going to be out at most 75 days, or about out until week 6.

    you may be too stupid to understand that.”

    Given that your team has been around TWICE as long as the Seahawks, is that really an accomplishment? That’s like the United States is more developed than some new country that was founded. Yeah, no wonder that you have way more accomplishments.

    I think you might be too stupid to get the point I was making. Newsflash, I said winning RECENTLY, not in the past. The past has no bearing on now.

    b) On that note, have they actually ever won a game that really mattered?

    2) What was the Seahawks winning percentage on the road last year? What can be done to fix it?

    3) Who are their receivers without Harvin? I haven’t heard of any of those names. Are they rookies?

    4) Does it suck to perennaly field a losing team and always be disrespected by fans who think the 49ers are better than you?

  137. Norseman says: Jul 25, 2013 5:21 PM

    You’d think Seattle would have learned by now after signing Sidney Rice away from the Vikings…. but I guess not.

    Keep in mind Percy Harvin never played more than 40% of the offensive snaps while he was a Minnesota Viking. Sometimes because of injury, other times to limit his play to prevent injury.

    BTW, thank you for the draft picks.

  138. sampsonswag01 says: Jul 25, 2013 5:24 PM

    As a #49ers fan I can say, honestly, it sucks when a star player goes down this early. I won’t be saying this very often but “sorry ‘hawk fans”. Personally I want the Seahawks at full health come week 2. But knowing that Aldon Smith had a torn labrum last year for the last 5 games of the season….it definitely affected how he was able to play. And he needed surgery too. Either way hope he gets better soon.

  139. hopper15 says: Jul 25, 2013 5:27 PM

    Taking Crabtree and Harvin out of the mix because of injury. Quite frankly I think most would take Anquan Boldin over Sidney Rice

  140. mvphillip says: Jul 25, 2013 5:31 PM

    Harvin’s injury is not and should not be to the Seahawks. Even though Harvin injured his hip last week he had still been working out with teammates the last few days and moving at full speed, so you would believe his hip labral tear would be treated non-surgically, as most labral tears are. Do some research yourself and you’ll find majority of labrum tears are not treated surgically.

    Personally, I’ve had a torn hip labrum for months, and my orthopedic surgeon and I decided to go with non-surgical treatment. I’m still able to be physically active, play sports, do plyometric training, and squat and deadlift over 500 lbs for reps on both without any pain or issues.

    Seahawks seem like they are just being cautious, and with it only being the beginning of training camp, why not take their time and make sure they get all the information possible about the injury?

  141. allidoiswin55 says: Jul 25, 2013 5:32 PM

    The niners have made the playoff 2 out of 10 seasons, for a 20% rate for those who struggle with math.

    SEAHAWKS have made it 7 out of 10 seasons, for a 70% rate I’m the last decade.

    Again please explain to me why the Seahawks have had more success than the niners in the past 20 years and somehow the niners fans aren’t acting like they picked all those top 100 players in the top 10 of tthe draft every season because their team was arguably the worst in football for the majority of my and many of your lives.

    The niners have an inferiority complex, they sucked soo bad for so long that when they finally did anything, they act like it’s never stopped. Guess what, you got good how? Getting older players to perform, having all teams rebuild at once, getting your top 5-10 picks to finally play to their talent, and now whittle Ol seattle came in to rain on your parade. They rebuilt from SB contenders in the mid 2000′s to again in 2012. Doesn’t change the fact that you’re ur team tends to suck, not even pointing out 2 of 20 seasons of success changes that. Only reason it flies nationally is because seattle is hidden and gets no media coverage until they force you to pay attention, by that time your all behind. The nfl wants the niners to be great to, good for business, but your really jus got extremely lucky and have had NO SWRIOUS injuries to derail you, even a simple injury to smith had your while defense look weak. Again every team get a injured players, your never did, must have been that HGH, but denying luck is involved n your ” recent ” success is comical.

    The seahawks took your lunch money last year and you barely won at home. And this was without Harvin, meaning they have to ability with or without him. Ain’t nothing changed. NINERS still have an inferiority complex, well unless your talking about the time a when the teams weren’t directly matched up in the playoffs. Since joining the NFCW WE OWN THIS B* TCH get use to it.

  142. seals1 says: Jul 25, 2013 5:34 PM

    Percy is as Percy does. Still a great player when he is on the field but Head to Toe is all you have to worry about.

    As a Viking fan I would still be pleased in Seattle that he is actually hurt and not just upset. He will still play his heart out until he is not happy anymore. That will be year 3.

    As a vikes fan who’s been adamant this whole time it was a terrible trade for seattle, people need to settle down. It’s over a month before the season begins people are like this is the end of the world for Percy Harvin. Plus they signed him for 4 years. The bigger problem I had with the trade is when they are going to resign their secondary and they won’t be able to keep everyone cuz they’re paying this guy 12 mil a year. A slot WR, and gave up 3 draft picks to get him. Compared to victor cruz’s deal, it’s just way too much, as great of a player that he is.

Remember your karma, kiddies.

  149. 2ruefan says: Jul 25, 2013 5:49 PM

    C’mon now. Let’s not give the Vikes too much credit for this. Nobody got “suckered” here.

    I’m sure the Hawks did their due diligence in terms of medical stuff before trading, or wouldn’t have done it.

    If he doesn’t play or is out any significant time it’s just a bad break for the Seahawks.

    Vikes are my team, but I don’t see any justification in giving any great credit to Vikings management here.

    Just bad luck for Seattle.

    We have guys on the practice squad that are better receivers than anyone the 09ers have.

    And as for overtaking the 09ers, that already happened in week 13 last year.

    You’d better start hoping our team plane crashes or something because that’s the only way we don’t win the West, the NFC, and the Super Bowl. Again.

    2 havin wss Full speed two days ago with a little discomfort in his hip, NOTHING SERIOUS, and he had it checked out and found a slight strain. Meaning he Is still nearly 100%but has some discomfort.

    He can still play. Not like he came out today and tore something. Hence them getting a second opinion. It’s manadorty foe teams to report any and all physical related information. He can run around and even slightly hurt their isn’t a more dynamic player than him. Haha

    Hello he is going to play, the Seahawks traded the normal amount of picks to basically move up in the draft. There wasn’t a more dynamic player available then him. Oh and the seahawks drafted how many, like 12 players still after giving away some to the biqeens. . Lol

    C’monnnnn the seahawks are one of if not the best developers from the draft and they drafted more than any other team or the same as the niners. When you have picks to burn, you package them for proven talent. Nothing new both teams won, bc your teams so awful and qb is pathetic that he wouldn’t play for you pretenders, and we needed him and have the coach to control that divaness he shows.

    Since the niners and Seahawks have been in the same division the seahawks have made the playoffs at a rate of 70% the niners :( 20%. Please realize we own this division. Stop talking about trophies from 20 years ago when we were an AFC team. Since joining the NFCW the Seahawks owned your as s ain’t nothing changed but the year.

    Welcome back to mediocrity San Francisco, sure your use to it after these past 20 years.

    Loudest stadium in the league: Seattle, we’ll whip the Miners like a red headed stepchild (again) in 2013, we’ll set The Guinness Record for loudest stadium since and including the Roman Coliseum at that home game, we’ll beat the Miners in that hole they call home in a city by a bay and take the division again. Lastly we’ll win our second Super Bowl in less than 10 years. That’s right Stealer (spelling intentional). Don’t look down Stealer, look me inthe eyes boy!

    Harvin or no, here we go!

    We didn’t have Harvin
    You still got embarrassed.
    You got the wrong Harbaugh bro and
    made Joe Flacco a wealthy man. Joe Flacco. Joe Flacco.

  161. dirtydrew says: Jul 25, 2013 6:37 PM

    Exactly. Look CheatHawk fans. It’s great to have a rivalry. And it’s good you have had some success. But head to head, it’s been even for a while. But, remember your place. Five Lombardi Trophy’s speak volumes. Number of Hall of Famers. Players listed as the greatest at their position. And this the last year at the ‘Stick. . Come strong, but The 12th man is Texas A&M. You guys are bandwagon at best.

  162. prettyflyforawhiteguy1 says: Jul 25, 2013 6:44 PM

    Hold on now … we’re talking about the Hawks having a good receiving core mius Harvin?! What are you smoking?! There is about 20 teams WR corps I would take over the Rice/Baldwin/Tate combo hahaha. I’ll give you Rice – he is an ok receiver but can’t stay healthy. Baldwin? Never head of the guy. And Tate? He hasn’t done anything since Notre Dame. To be honest, I didn’t even know he was on an NFL roster until I read these comments above. Stop daydreaming Seattle.. your WRs without Harvin hardly scare anyone. Your D on the other hand, is really freaking good. Your QB and RB are awesome. But quite trying to defend that sorry WR stable.

  163. sonoco says: Jul 25, 2013 6:44 PM

  164. seahawksteven777 says: Jul 25, 2013 6:46 PM

    It’s funny when 49ers fans say that Seahawks fans start the trash talking. Really? 49ers fans have ALWAYS been on everything the Seahawks have done, particularly the PED issue, where most of the trash talking ensued.

    We’re just as passionate as any other fan out there and the future is bright for us. I don’t get all the fans mocking Hawks fans over this Harvin injury. Pretty sure a majority of fans, 49ers fans included, would have been stoked to get a player of his caliber back in march.

    Also, to the 49ers fan that said what receivers we have, that’s funny. Sidney Rice, Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin won us 11 games last year and nearly got us to the conference championship. Losing Harvin would suck but it’s not the end of the world.

    Also, I hope a lot of you 49ers fans realize that had our receivers not had a case of the drops in the first meeting last year, we probably would have swept you guys. Oh yes, how easily that is overlooked. It’s really the truth though. Had Turbin caught that pass on the wheel route, would have been a touchdown. Golden Tate also dropped a key conversion on a 3rd down. Just a bad game but still.

    As a Hawks fan this, of course sucks. I wanted to see the Niners with Crabtree and the Hawks with Harvin battle it out. Let the better team win…and by the way, right now I wouldn’t venture a guess at whcih it could be.

    Injuries are part of the game but it’s way more fun and interesting to play and be played while all teams are at full strength.

  169. rcknrog11 says: Jul 25, 2013 7:12 PM

    Be honest: would you rather have the 70% win percentage in division titles or 5 lombardi trophies (they don’t rust you know).

    I can tell what *every* single one seahawk players would want.

    Thank you!

  171. cassidy1983 says: Jul 25, 2013 7:25 PM

    Harvin is injured! There goes 5 catches and 61 yards per game. Not exactly a superstars yard-per-catch. Plus, he’s had only 1/4 seasons which he has played all 16 games.

  172. lakermetskins says: Jul 25, 2013 8:04 PM

  175. youallrfools says: Jul 25, 2013 9:01 PM

    This is funny. Harvin was the most overrated player in the league last year. When the MVP talks started I almost crapped. A fast player that caught swing passes and had an open field cause AD demanded the focus of the defense. Yep. MVP. ialto.

    He’s a 180 soaking wet and runs like he’s Jerome Bettis. How could any reasonable person not see him breaking down this quick?

    Another great move by Spielmann. Now if he just hadn’t panicked and drafted the lame duck 12th overall…

    Seaturkey’s enjoy the soap opera. This is the first of a long line of drama you are going to get with this man-boy.

  176. taintedsaints2009 says: Jul 25, 2013 9:02 PM

    Just like Sidney Rice. Harvin is tough but if its a hip injury and you hear surgery, you want to cut the losses and just not play him for the season. Sidney was stupid and delayed the surgery, and in my opinion, screwed up the Vikings season in 2010. It will look bad for the Seahawks since they gave up a ton for him, but you have to be smart and just let the guy heal up. He has always had injury problems. Not just migraines.

    It’s too bad to hear since harvin is so exciting to watch.

    __________________________________

    And the Seahawks in 37 years of existence are 0-1 in Super Bowls.

    Try to morph that stats all you want….the Seahawks were winning a division when it was one of the worst in *sports* history..not just the NFL. Winning the NFC West in that time was a consolation prize….not an accomplishment.

    However nearly 20 years ( 2 decades!!..i/e over half of your team’s existence) of benchmark sports excellence followed by 8 years of impotence is normal in any franchise. The problem is Seattle has ONLY been mediocre and has a collective history as a franchise AND city that is forgettable. THIS is the sole reason Seattle folks are so caught up in a frenzy because you’ve NEVER had this before.

    The saying “Act like you’ve been there before” is very appropriate right now. Again…..37 years……ZERO championships.

  178. shonelikethesun says: Jul 25, 2013 9:07 PM

    Harvin is injured and not on the field WAY too often. Vikes were better without him the second half of the season anyway. Good luck Hawks fans, this guy will drive you crazy. And thanks for the draft picks.

    First up 49er fans: You lost your #1 WR, we lost our slot guy. We still have Rice, Tate, and Baldwin. You have Boldin and……and…crickets. Enough said. All this hate must just be relief on your parts, happy you don’t have to deal with the headache ( no pun) of Harvin. Plus, I don’t think we had him last time we played either, that was a nail biter.

    As for Vikings fans: Really, really, you have something to say? Who are your receivers again? Plus just for fun, one name for you…Christian Ponder!

    ———————-

    Got news for you brother, minus Harvin, the Pedhawks WR corps are……are…..crickets, nothing more. If you are excited about Rice, Tate and Baldwin, you are delusional my friend. Pedhawks offense is still questionable and unproven to this point. I think they’ll make the playoffs but a Superbowl run is about as likely as a Vikings Superbowl run, to a person who’s realistic anyways.

  182. forty9asty says: Jul 25, 2013 11:40 PM

    Geez Seattle fans, can you just pick one “qualifier” to base your history argument please?

    If it’s since team inception – 9ers 5 rings, Seattle 0.
    If it’s since Seattle joined NFC West, its no rings from either team, one Superbowl appearance each, both lost. True, you won 2 more division titles than the 9ers in that time but being the least crappy team in a division that was all over horrible is not much to hang your hat on. If you only want to compare RECENT history, we’ve won the division the last two years in a row, sure you kicked our tails the last time we met, but then we went on and beat the teams you couldn’t beat in the playoffs to make it to the Superbowl. So for your “recent history” argument, let’s go decade at a time. 2000′s were yours, and we’ve got the edge so far this decade, let’s see how it plays out shall we?

  183. trollhammer20 says: Jul 26, 2013 12:08 AM

    Crap. This means we have to rely on the guys who got us to 11-5 last year.

    Plays 300% on the field.

    AD loved him.

    Last year’s injury showed that he MAY be a slow healer.

    Hope he gets better soon.

    The Vikes picked up an injury prone WR that they are counting on for routes and leadership from the Packers too so it could happen to us too.

    Difference Percy leadership not so much and more bucks invested, but younger

  187. allidoiswin55 says: Jul 26, 2013 5:12 AM

    Bobhk…..

    How many superbowls do the current Niners have? Yeah guess those seahawks would rather take their winning percentage than trading superbowls that a team has in its history.

    Again 7 out of 10 seasons the seahawks have made the playoffs, niners 2 in in he same time. The seahawks have owned the division since joining about 10 seasons ago.

  188. jahmic says: Jul 26, 2013 6:00 AM

    This is about a guy (a prized addition) getting hurt, and it’s like people are kicking him when he’s down.

    I like an occasional well-made smackdown comment, but all the petty name calling reminds of 5th grade or something.

  189. yizudien says: Jul 26, 2013 8:10 AM

    This is no shocker to anyone in minnesota, this guy wasnt that good to begin with.

    Yea you can say he has all the talent in the world but what good is a glass cannon? If this was flag football you may have a good guy, but here it was one problem after another. Then he wanted a ton of money for making it almost through an entire season!

    If seattle wants a good ROI from this guy they really need to get through that thick skull of his and say ” Hey you havent lasted an entire season yet, so we need to change how you prepare of the NFL Seasons.” Something isnt working with how this guy prepares each off season and it needs to be fixed.

  190. briank1ne says: Jul 26, 2013 9:41 AM

    This is why you dont laugh at another team losing a star wide receiver. Sucks right? Regardless. the niners and the seahawks are still great teams without these players. Well, one team is still a good team at home. When that one team plays away…they really stink up the joint. If you want to be superbowl contenders seattle…gotta step up your away game. Noone seems to be mentioning that. #niners

    Harvin has been explosive but fragile since day one. Hey will be a difference maker for about 10 games per year. Just hope to have him in the playoffs if you are a Seattle fan. Dont forget, they did win a road playoff game without him last year and have improved in more other areas besides just reciever.

  194. jeffbye says: Jul 26, 2013 6:04 PM

    He’s not just complaining. It was found in an MRI so obviously there is a real issue. That being said, does he not stretch properly? He had a hip strain in 2010 too.

    Funny how the Seahawks offense torched the league the second half of last season without Harvin, yet they want to trash talk us. We have the same exact receiving corps this year with added depth at RB and TE. We’re going to be just fine on offense.

This answer is simple we will beat you with the same people we beat you with last year. Get over it, damn now I’m falling in to this trap.It is going to be interesting to see how many of you will still be around when you open the season 0-2. A very real possiblity. Heck to be realistic you could be 1-3 to start the season. You have a tough schedule this year. Check your attatude.——————————————————–You do realize the Niners beat the Seahawks last year too right? Typical clueless Hawk fan. Not surprising though.

    ———-

    A win is a win and the 9ers beat the hawks last year. If you remember the game in frisco tho, the niners did get outplayed at least 2 1/2 quarters of football on their home field. So im sure your team doesnt have the hawks players shakin in their boots.

    However, on a more serious note. There is no way to stand up and deny Harvin’s brilliance on the field and not have something bad happen to you when you walk out of the door later in the day.

    I do hope he eventually figures out whatever he needs to figure out.

    It’s a TOTAL shame that he wasn’t able to work it out as a Viking, he seriously can be magic sometimes, and is insanely exciting to watch. Seattle are going to see games in way they haven’t yet. I just hope he grows up a bit and doesn’t tear your locker room apart, as he was just about to do ours.

    There mightve been a couple Hawks fans that made some distateful comments but every fan base has probably an equal amount of obnoxious trash talkers. Personally I felt kinda bad for Crabtree cuz hes a stud and hasnt really had his chance to shine. I feel the same for Harvin, an electric talent, just hasnt had his chance in minnesota with ponder tossing the ball, and behind peterson in the gameplan.

    About the road wins, the Hawks went 4-4 on the road. Which isnt the best ever, but 3 of those road losses were by 3-4 points. (The 7 pt loss to the 9ers being the only game lost by a td or more on the road.)

    That is a pretty respectable season on the road, and I think most teams did about the same or worse.

  199. rukkus1 says: Jul 27, 2013 5:38 AM

    Seattle was 9th in the league in scoring offense. The 9ers were 11th. I wouldnt lay on that horn so hard. Dont forget the Hawks offense put up 50 pt games twice (one on the road) and hax their way with 42 points in another game.
