Harvin denied reports that he left, in part, because of a falling out with coach Leslie Frazier, saying the two still have a "great relationship."

I agreed with every move Pete Carrol made up until this point. I mean, he has concussion problems, and he's not worth a first round pick.

You need that pick to get a pass rush, a guy like Datone Jones.

But if he wanted to go that route, he could have been patient and a guy like Tavon Austin could have fell to him at 24, or maybe even Terrence Williams or a guy like o rhe could have got Justin Hunter.

But I probaly bet Pete Carrol will move up Laughing


Hmm. I guess I'll lend a helping hand.

He had migraine problems which stemmed from sleep apnea and have since been treated and relieved for 2 years now. He hasn't had a migraine during that entire span. Not worth a 1st round pick...meh...you'll have a hard time convincing me of that as well. He's only 24 years old coming with a 6 year contract, meaning we will literally have him for the entirety of his prime. He's coming off a half season where he was in consideration for MVP prior to injury and was 3rd in the entire NFL in total YAC despite playing in 7 less games than any of the other players in the top 10.

Sure, we could have landed Terrance Williams in the 1st round. Wanna know a funny thing about Terrance Williams? He'll be the same age as Percy Harvin when the 2013 season kicks off. So you think we should have taken the risk of an unknown NFL commodity in the 1st round over dealing our 1st for a player of the same age and a guy we know can produce like an MVP caliber player?

Sorry if you're not selling me on your ideals.


Yea but this is a weak draft defensively. Especially for interior pass rushers.

Could have got a guy like Datone Jones thats all I'm saying.


Could have. But what if Datone Jones is off the board? Are we left scratching our heads, thinking "damn I really wish we would've used this 1st on a Percy Harvin trade instead of taking a guy like Terrance Williams".

Quote:
According to two sources, the straw that broke the Vikings' back with Harvin is when he bemoaned the fact that quarterback Christian Ponder, a 2011 first-round pick, was not good enough. That came even though Ponder consistently fed Harvin the ball.

Last season, Harvin had team highs of 62 catches for 677 yards, and added three touchdowns before suffering a season-ending injury in the Vikings' ninth game.

Now, Harvin goes to Seattle, which has wunderkind quarterback Russell Wilson. Wilson not only pushed Robert Griffin III for Rookie of the Year this season, but also happens to have a lot in common with Harvin. Both are 24 and grew up in the eastern part of Virginia: Harvin from Virginia Beach and Wilson from Richmond.

In other words, they have known of each other for a long time and there's enough respect between the two that Harvin likely won't create more trouble. Wilson is probably one of the few people who can keep Harvin in line.

Seattle plays Minnesota this year too. More story lines about Harvin and Ponder to deal with. Rolling Eyes

actually we do not know that to be true...

the Vikings were extremely close lipped about Harvin's health while on the team. he probably did have migraines during that time, and probably still does, as what the Vikings have said is that his migraines are "under control."

however, it is correct to say he never missed a game or any practices with migraine issues for almost two years now.

sincerely,
fact check daddy

Harvin said in his press conference yesterday that he hasn't had one since.

ok. odd that the Vikings never said that. it certainly would have been in their interest to. whether they intended to trade him some day or keep him for years.

and i do know for a fact that Harvin left some practices while on the field very quickly and with trainers, who would remove him from practices when they saw indicators they didn't like.

oddly enough, everyone does agree that the shots to the head that football players regularly take would not contribute to migraines. concussions, yes, but not migraines.

I heard the same thing as SoS, so I find the migraine situation intriguing. Hopefully Harvin didn't openly lie about it.

Who knows, maybe they only disclosed the information in private discussions.

what i meant is the Vikings never said Harvin's migraines were "gone" or "cured," during press conferences or anything. and believe me, they were asked frequently.

so if he hasn't had a single migraine for two years, i don't know why the Vikes wouldn't have announced that publicly when asked.
