Harvin probable, which means he’ll play against Vikings

AP

The Seahawks are going to get the weapon back that they hardly need.

The team announced that wide receiver Percy Harvin (hip) was probable for Sunday’s game. That means it’s a virtual certainty that he’ll play against his old team, the Vikings.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Harvin “has a chance” to play. We can only hope Carroll didn’t sprain anything trying to keep a straight face while he said it.

While they’ll doubtless want to ease Harvin back in after his preseason hip surgery, they’re probably as eager to see him as he is to see the team that traded him rather than giving him a contract extension.

  1. Ah the hypocrisy from The Whiner faithful, vis-à-vis “the pftpoet”. The Whiners accused Pete Carroll of running a “country club” in Seattle, and endorsing the distribution of PED’s. But now he says that because he played for the Vikings, Percy is too classy to have used them.

    So how then do you justify your earlier position considering that Pete, was an assistant coach in Minnesota, for FIVE YEARS??? Not to mention that our OC came from Minny, and our backup QB, and our top WR.

    Two guys test positive for Adderall and you’ve got the whole team taking them. Oh well, you also claimed that Colin K. was the top QB in the league. It must suck to be you.

    Vikes fans talked trash after Percy got hurt ya say? Vikes fans said 2 things negative about Percy after he was traded. 1) he’s injury prone 2) He has a history of violent behavior towards his coaches dating back to college. So lets see, he has missed over half of the year due to injury. Score 1 for the Vikings fans. And I guess we’ll have to see if Pete Carroll shows up with 2 black eyes. The jury is still out on that one. Oh, can the media please stop with the Percy has a chip on his shoulder crap. He demanded to be traded and got his wish. If anyone has a score to settle it’s Darrel Bevell. Hawks by 21, possibly by the end of the first quarter.

  3. Sendejo is going to light his ass up. That’s all he wants to do anyway is go out there and hand licks out. Wish Harrison Smith was playing though

  4. @seaeagle707:

    From a Vikings fan, the new coaching regime in Minnesota is much different than the last.

    You realize every person from the Vikings that’s now on Seattle was a part of one of the most classless regimes in football led by Brad Childress who did things like cut veterans on Xmas? You of all people should realize the former Viking players from that are the worst things about your team right now.

    Sidney Rice: Sat out half a season with the Vikings because he wanted a contract extension the year after Favre should’ve won the MVP. Seattle was dumb enough to give him the contract. I bet as a true Seattle fan you wish he wasn’t on the books.

    Darrelle Bevell: Never has really amounted to much. With some of the weopons you claim to have, and with Russell Wilson, a QB that is a lot better than his numbers say (because of the offensive scheme), Darrelle should have a top 10 offense, but he doesn’t.

    Tavaris Jackson: I don’t need to say more. Just pray Russell doesn’t get hurt.

    Percy Harvin: Sat out half the season already after making his money and took it all the way to the marijuana dispensery. Multiple doctors have suggested he’ll have to have the other side fixed at some point as well. Threw a dumbbell at his coaches, struggles with anger problems. I wouldn’t defend this guy quite yet. He’s works hard and is an amazing talent, but just like T.O., that doesn’t make you not a cancer.

  5. Seattle is a run first team. Percy Harvin will provide an additional threat which will not allow them to stack the box against Lynch. The value isn’t necessarily in actually catching..mainly in the threat.
    Pretty darn sure if he gets open RW will get him the ball.
    O-line members listed as probable. RW should have better protection. ( will likely be rotating linemen all game )

  6. pillowporkers,

    Sidney Rice is no Steve Largent, but he’s a hell of a lot better than a lot of the guys who have come through Seattle. Sidney has played hard football for the Hawks.

    And Bevell scouted Wilson at Wisconsin. Pete Carroll called drafting Russell Wilson “Bevell’s project”. And after winning the QB competition in Seattle, Russell Wilson has used Bevell’s system to take the Seahawks to 20 wins so far through two seasons.

    Not a top 10 offense? They may not put up ungodly numbers like Manning or Brees but Marshawn Lynch was the #2 RB last year. And Seattle was 61 minutes away from a Superbowl. And THIS YEAR Seattle has the best record in NFC so far. Wins count. Stats don’t mean much if you can’t string some wins together.

  7. Pillowporkers, Seattle coaching philosophy is to bring out the best in players.
    So far they are succeeding.

    Your post sounds more like “sour grapes” that these players are performing well and are no longer Vikings.

    Sid is likely no longer in Seahawks plans with his injury at any rate.

  8. Pillowporkers, Seattle doesn’t have a top ten offense but they are #11 on that list and after facing the terrible Vikings defense they might just end up at #8 when its all said and done. And for the record T-Jack has been a very solid back-up here in Seattle. I don’t think there is a better back-up QB in the NFL. GO HAWKS

  9. Admittedly I have not watched the Vikes much but this seams like it could be a trap game. Mostly just because of Peterson. If he has a big game the crowd noise is not as big a deal in the run game. Clearly it would have to be an ugly game and there D would have to show up big time but stranger things have happened. They put a pretty good beatdown on SF last year. Just seams to me That a great passing offense would be neutralized by Seattles great secondary at home so a team that can run has a better shot.

  10. Adderal, AP had a big game against us last year, 182 yards or something like that. But we still beat them, 30-20. Rushing yards don’t mean much (to us as well) if the rest of the offense can’t capitalize on those yards. That’s where Minny has got problems, and why AP has vented his frustration from time to time. An RB wants to know that the hard fought yards he’s gained for the team resulted in points added.

    The Hawks secondary is close to being the best in the league, if not “the” best. When they’re “on”, opposing QB’s won’t have good “air” days. That’s what our team counts on, shutting down passing games. If we do that this Sunday, AP may do well, but it won’t mean much.

    Pillowporkers; who needs Sidney Rice? We’ve got Golden Tate, Jermaine Kearse, Doug Baldwin, et al. I hope Harvin does well too, but we’ve won 9 games this year without him. Bevell has engineered enough quality offense to stifle all of the “top tier’ teams we’ve faced in this season and last (save for Indy).

    But tell you what, you keep Ponder. I’m quite happy with TJax.

  11. Guess I’ll be the only Viking fan so far to say it: I loved Percy as a Viking. Bit of a diva? yes. Doesnt like to practice? Seems that way. But when the guy gets on the field, he has DRIVE and HEART. Excited to see him play, even if I hope his team loses.

    Migraines can stem from depression also,my bet is he got the migraines cuz he was so depressed being on the Biqueens…he has nt had one in Seattle
    ——————————————————-

    If migraines are caused by depression you must get them a lot driving a Cobalt.

  13. I’ve got a Cobalt 2.0 Turbo, and it is a lot of fun to drive. Great handling, acceleration, fast top end. I’ve never had a migraine in my life.
