Favre did have a habit of putting the ball in a spot that wasn't necessarily protective of being hit, and Harvin is so darn reckless and fearless that he'd go for it every time.

Such a lethal combination, but man that had to have taken a toll on Harvin's body.

Same here, Perry. CP was the one guy I really wanted us to get in this draft. I never had the nerve to dream of a scenario where we could get CP after also having Sharif Floyd and Xavier Rhodes fall to us. This year's draft was incredible, and could go down as one of the best in Vikings history if all these guys live up to their potential.

This!


When me and my older bro watched the draft, we were absolutely astonished after the first round .. 3 top tier players, and I didn't think either of them would be available at 23/25

harvin is a soldier for taking those hits. i know he didn't leave many bridges intact with his departure but he was far from soft

My concerns about his work ethic and maturity are starting to look more and more like hyperbole then substance. He really seems to want to be here and learn how to be a great player. I love being wrong! Seriously though it seems like he's embracing the challenge of learning the playbook even if isn't necassarily a sharp knife. If he keeps this up he'll be great.

oh, i'm not in any way saying he was soft. just that his smaller stature might have made him more likely to get hurt.

Holy balls, I can't wait to watch this guy in Mankato for training camp this summer .. Hopefully he can prove the naysayers (which there seems to be a lot of) wrong!

Harvin was built like a tank though.

Being smaller has its advantages over the middle of the field in terms of taking hits. A shorter receiver has less target area exposed.

There never really were any concerns in my eyes, "my cousin's friend's uncle said he's a meanie" doesn't really do it for me. For all the talk of CP being labeled as a guy with character concerns before the draft I never found anything noteworthy.

Prior to the draft he wasn't really labeled with "character" concerns per say. He was labeled with, "can this guy learn an NFL playbook" and "is he a flash in the pan with only one year of major college ball."

There were perceived maturity issues that seem to be nothing more than him being a fun loving guy... at this point.

Throw in catching the ball with his hands and not his body and it is a solid per-rookie season assessment.

Hope the kid soaks up Greg Jennings time.

do that #84 proud, son.





Moss was not the only hot Vikings wr to wear #84. our main receiver in the early 70's that Tarkenton threw to did also - Gene Washington.
