    If for some unexplainable reason he is “cleared”, someone will need to POINT Percy in the general direction of the field, as well as the SPECIFIC direction of the huddle. He was absolutely knocked into another world, and I imagine the DBs and LBs of the Niners were paying attention, in the event they encounter Percy this weekend. That first hit, in particular, was CRINGE-WORTHY, the second one was simply the finishing touch. Play him…you MUST be kidding!

    Only time will tell. Good luck Percey.

    Harvin is in a no win situation; if he play’s, the Seahawks are skirting NFL protocol, if he doesn’t play, it’s because he’s a wimp.

    That said, I don’t buy the apparent premise that the Seahawks are somehow doomed if Harvin can’t play. Not hardly.

    if he wants to play, i say play him

    I hope he freakin’ plays! Even if he’s only out there as a decoy. In the limited time he was available, he was a difference maker. And on the second hit when he got injured he was doing a great job of trying to find space while Wilson kept the play alive. Harvin is going to be worth it. I truly think that. He’s just had the deck stacked against him. He will Percyvere. Yep, I said it.

    You’re kidding right? Coming from a 9ers fan the Seahawks closed out an impressive season without him. THERE IS NO WAY, you can declare it hopeless for Seattle without him.

    Does their chances increase with him in, yes. But are they doomed, absolutely not. Both teams have most of their talent playing so it should be entertaining.

    Trash talking aside (and there will be plenty I’m sure), the Seahawks were the better team through week 13. Not a LOT better, but better. Starting in week 14, they fell (IMHO) to number two. They lost a couple of games to division rivals (one of them at home), while the Niners beat them, beat the team that beat them at home, and went on to beat two playoff teams on the road while compiling an 8 game win streak. So I’d say since week 13, the Niners have been better. Not a LOT better, but better.

    The difference? I’d have to say the teams’ respective receiving corps. The Hawks lost Rice and Harvin wasn’t back yet while, the Niners got back Crabtree and Patton (who replaced a questionable Kyle Williams).

    So if Harvin can play effectively it could make a HUGE difference. These teams are so closely matched, one of the players having gas could make a difference.

    Here is what matters people. First the past does not equal the present. Sorry Seahawks. Here is what matters even more than the 12th man. Even more than all the numbers and percentages being tossed to and fro. The 49ers are hot and you are not. They are playingat the perfect level and here is what will happen. 49ers will score first and eventually take a 10 point lead shaking. the hawks way more. than 140 decibels….27 17 Niners win. Dont you get it the 49ers are coming with all the momentum and Seattle is primed for a unusual time.

    Being “hot” and having momentum is a fleeting thing. The 49er momentum can end at any moment, just like the home winning streak of the Seahawks did. So, you may come into Seattle with the momentum, but leave without it.

    No doubt he will be Hearing the song “A Summer Place” by Percy Faith after he gets popped by some of the 9ers! Smart move is to sit out.

    Beating Good teams, making it to the playoffs or even the Super Bowl is great. But if you don’t cash in and actually Win one or more.. when your teams name comes up in a conversation it will be followed by “Who?….Oh them they Never won anything!”.

    71-16 their last two meetings at the CLINK! Closely matched, yes but only on paper. Kap dealing with that crowd will be nearly impossible. The TO’s will be gone in the 1st and 3rd quarters, then what. If, and I do mean if the 49ers win they truly deserve it. Hopefully the refs and the crap talking can stay out of it. But i’m sure it will all be involved. Winner of this game will win the SB in my opinion!

    WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP SAYING PERCY HARVIN IS A KEY FOR SEATTLE?

    PERCY HARVIN DID NOTHING FOR US THIS YEAR.

    MY NIECE IS 3 YEARS OLD AND SHE ONLY CAUGHT ONE LESS PASS THAN HARVIN THIS SEASON.

    HARVIN IS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE IN SEAHAWKS HISTORY.

    ALL THOSE DRAFT PICKS AND ALL THAT MONEY FOR ONE 17 YARD CATCH.

    THE SEAHAWKS ARE THE BEST TEAM IN THE NFL AND WE DID IT WITH ABSOLUTELY ZERO HELP FROM THE LOSER!

    WE NEVER NEEDED PERCY HARVIN AND WE NEVER WILL.

    WORST TRADE IN SEAHAWKS HISTORY AND WORST CONTRACT IN SEAHAWKS HISTORY.

    THERE WERE LITERALLY MORE THAN 1000 NFL PLAYERS THIS SEASON THAT HAD A BIGGER IMPACT THAN HARVIN.

    ONE CATCH……..17 YARDS……

    GO TO HELL PERCY. RETIRE AND JUST GO TO HELL.

    YOU ARE NOT A REAL SEAHAWK AND YOU NEVER WILL BE!
