Harvin activated from physically unable to perform

AP

The Seahawks took a step toward improving an offense that was doing a little better than just getting by.

The team announced they had activated wide receiver Percy Harvin from the physically unable to perform list.

Coach Pete Carroll said last week Harvin would practice more this week, and had previously indicated he was comfortable stashing him on the inactive list for a few weeks if he needed the time to recover from preseason hip surgery.

The Seahawks had a better day in the passing game yesterday, with Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse each making plays. As nice as that is, Harvin could add an element they’ve lacked most of the year, even while running out to a 9-1 record.

  1. oh man …..
    watch out …
    the best team in football is about to get even better..#youhavebeenputonnotice

  2. The wide receivers really shined in large part to the protection Wilson received, they gave him a clean pocket and did he ever deliver some bombs. 8 passes over 20 yards or more.

    Its going to be so exciting to watch Harvin/Tate both do their thing. Russell Okung can be activated this weekend. 4 of Seattle’s last 6 games will be played at Century Link. Go Hawks!

  3. Too bad Seattle cant stop the run. Vikes game will be closer than people realize. Adrian guaranteed 150 after what Stacy and mike James did to them.

  4. I think they should resign Tate before the end of the season. Between punt returning and recieving, he’s been putting up highlight reel production anytime Wilson has had the time to get him the ball. With a clean pocket and Harvin getting doubled on the other side, he has the potential to be LETHAL for the Seahawks. And the niners are sure to bid up the price for him if he hits the market.

  5. Did you know that “their” is when you’re talking about ownership? Lolz

    So if THERE were no seahawks fans until last year then why have they been the loudest stadium in the NFL for years? I believe you need fans for that to happen.

  6. Seattle has the best front office and coaching staff in sports. They have masterfully built a Super Bowl favorite in three years and I’m sure they’ll manage Harvin’s recovery just fine. Go Seahawks !!!

  7. Like they’ll need him when they play my team’s defensive secondary made up of JV players and walking wounded.

  8. As a long time Vikings Fan, Harvin will make the Seahawks a better team. He always did a great job for the Vikes, other than his attitude. Winning football games cures all. Good luck to him. Hopefully he does not play this weekend against the Vikes.

  9. “Wilson, Lynch, Tate, Harvin, Baldwin, Kearse, Miller. Good luck stopping that.”

    Seriously? This brings the lulz. Tate, Baldwin, Kearse, Miller are nothing but scrubs.

    Brady, Gronk, Ridley, Vereen, Amendola, Dobson. Good luck stopping THAT.

  10. New Orleans can’t stop the run and Denver’s defense is not very good. Seattle stops the run more often than not and can bend but never breaks. I’ll take that over NO or Denver’s defenses.

  11. Please don’t be ready to play against my Vikes this weekend. It’s gonna be embarrassing enough as it is without a disgruntled Harvin running wild through our beat-up secondary.

  12. Long time Vikings fan here. Nice work the last couple years, an overdue franchise (believe me I know what I’m talking about and Roethlisberger did not break the plane!). That being said, I loved Harvin, but if you guys get back to the Superbowl it has nothing to do with him. He can and will be a pain in the … kiester sooner or later.

    Rock on & good luck!

  13. A funny thing happened. While the Seahawks have been waiting for Percy Harvin, Golden Tate turned into Percy Harvin.

    Tate is a baller!

  14. pftpoet, “Bandwagon Franchise”..

    Are there a good deal of bandwaggoners jumping on board with Seattle this year? Yes. And for those of us that have stuck with Seattle through all the bad times, those bandwaggoners are just about as cool as the Steelers fans.. (not very cool, that is).

    But, it’s important to note that Seattle Seahawks fans have not had many legitimate reasons to talk over the years. By and large we are smart enough to know when we have a good team and when we have a bad team. This year, Seattle has a championship quality team. They don’t put up 40 points a game like the Broncos but the Seahawks defense ranks among the best in the league and the offense has come up big when necessary.

    And with Russell Wilson under center the Seahawks have gone 20 and 6 so far. So, it’s no wonder there are bandwaggoners. It happens with all good teams when they are winning. And, it just so happens that this year (and last year) the Seattle Seahawks are a very good team.

    You don’t get outside much, do you?

  16. So, we’re all bandwagoners, pftpoet?

    This Seahawk bandwagoner remembers Jim Zorn to Efren Herrera on Monday Night Football.

    This bandwagoner remembers Dan Doornink beating the Raiders in a playoff game.

    This bandwagoner remembers Cortez Kennedy winning DPOY on the worst team in franchise history (2-14).

    This bandwagoner remembers the hopes fans had for a QB who wore the #3….no, not Russell Wilson. Rick Mirer. Yeah, that one didn’t work out so well. RW is making up for it, though.

    This bandwagoner remembers going 8-8 during the Erickson years with the #1 offense and #8 defense in the league, because the special teams lost three games all by themselves.

    This bandwagoner remembers beating the Saints in the Beastquake game, and smiling inside, as it seemed to indicate this team was heading in the right direction.

    This bandwagoner drove 500 miles from Albuquerque to Phoenix to see Russell Wilson play his first regular-season game in a Seattle uniform.

    Yep. We’re all bandwagoners all right.

    I would hope so. The Vikings have put him through every medical test known to cause migraines among his other problems. Only doctor he needs now is a good shrink.

  19. 25 years ago people would look at my Seahawks cap and ask me why I supported “those bums”, that couldn’t win a game of hopscotch. Today they look at my Seahawks cap and call me a “bandwagon fan”. I love it.

    —————-
    Seahawks allowed only 64 yards on the ground yesterday. The first seven weeks of the season, I believe only Arian Foster had a 100-yard game. If I recall correctly, the niners fell just shy of 14 yards total on the ground…one of their guys you may have heard of: Frank Gore.

    You really think two games means they can’t stop the run?

  21. About time this site did a piece on the number 1 team in football instead of that whiny QB in Denver who gets more than his share of attention from PFT and ESPN

    Go get em Harvin

  22. Seahawk fan since the first game…
    Before the Seahawks I cheered for San Francisco 49ers.
    They were my dads favorite team. They had a great reputation of standing behind the military. (Dad was Air Force). Can’t put the bandwagon tag on me.

    Harvin will be another target that other teams will have to respect.

    Hopefully back to full strength soon.

    Go Seahawks!

    Love it when a hater reads part of a post and extrapolates total nonsense.

    AP has hurt the Seahawks before and we respect that. (Actually AP has hurt a lot of teams before)

    Minnesota on the other hand is 29th against the pass, RW will likely have the missing parts of the o-line back. So RW may well have another 300 yard passing game.

    Go HAWKS!

  25. Anyone notice Seahawks fans have always been here. Now that we are good the Trolls are showing up and accusing us of bandwagon fans. lol

  26. Id say you guys have great fans up there, after the raw deal the sonics/thunder gave your city its good to have a good sports franchise. Things were pretty dismal in bay area for years as well now we have several good teams. It does make like here more fun for sure as I’m sure it does there

  27. A big reason Seattle has had recently stopping the run is the injuries they have had to the O line. The offense was very un productive and this kept the defense on the field longer. If Seattle plays with the lead their defense will be dangerous. A lot like the Colts defense when they had Manning

  28. Wish Winfield was on the field for the Vikes, would like to see a one on one tackle between Winfield and Harvin. Who would win that one?

    I’d root for Winfield but I know Harvin’s a physical guy as well.

  29. “Has anyone else noticed their were no Seattle Seahawks fans till last year?”

    You sir are completely out of touch.

    You should refrain from commenting on things you know nothing about.
