Quote:
Percy Harvin provided a timely reminder of his fantastic playmaking ability in Super Bowl XLVIII. The Seattle Seahawks would like to see more of that in 2014, and that starts with the wide receiver staying healthy and in the lineup.

To that goal, the Seahawks rested Harvin during the second half of their final minicamp practice Thursday. Harvin is coming off a 2013 in which he missed 15 of 16 regular-season games while recovering from hip surgery.

Coach Pete Carroll explained after practice that Seattle didn't work Harvin out three consecutive days during the offseason program, per The News Tribune. The team will follow the same plan during training camp.


Harvin is like the fine silverware, to be brought out only for special occasions, because it needs hand cleaning and polishing with every use. But he adds so much to the table when he's there.

According to the Charlotte Observer, longtime star NFL wide receiver Randy Moss is on the coaching staff of Victory Christian Center School in North Carolina. Mossí son, Thaddeus Moss, is a member of Victory Christianís team.

Good for him...I do know he was in Minnesota a short while ago helping out Tyrone Carter with his TC Elite Camp.

I'm hearing Chris Kluwe report could be released very soon and report is favorable to Kluwe.

That's from a Bleacher Report reporter who used to work for CBS.

No surprise to me if the report validates Kluwe's accusations, there was roughly a zero percent chance that he would've have gone public without being able to provide supporting evidence.

We should have a separate thread for what happens or doesn't happen to Priefer, this is an ongoing issue that affects the current team.

The effect will be minimal to the organization, in my opinion. All that likely would happen is that all coaches and players will likely have attend what, on TV, they like to call "sensitivity training."

The reality is that there is some measure of this type of culture evident in most, if not all, locker rooms. It will gradually change over time, just as today's locker rooms are a lot less harsh or callous than they were 30 years ago.

Making the Leap, No. 8: Jaguars' Toby Gerhart

We pegged running back Toby Gerhart as a "Making the Leap" candidate the minute he signed his three-year deal with the Jaguars.

He's a candidate to lead the league in carries, and I can't help but look at his career totals as a guide. In four seasons with the Vikings, his 276 rushes led to 1,305 yards and five scores. He won't achieve 4.7 yards per tote, but projecting him for 285 attempts and 1,150 yards makes plenty of sense.

If he can stay healthy, adjust to the pumped-up workload and produce as a pass protector, Gerhart has a chance to be Jacksonville's centerpiece beyond his current three-year deal.

Bryant McKinnie has made tens of millions of dollars in his NFL career, but he hasnít managed it wisely. McKinnie has been in financial trouble before, and now his car was repossessed and will be auctioned to pay off $21,354.69 that he owes attorneys who represented him in a previous case.

All this talk about freshmen that could make a big impact this season got us thinking: What are the best freshman performances at each position in college history?

RB Adrian Peterson, OklahomaYear: 2004
Buzz: He ran for an FBS freshman-record 1,925 yards and added 15 rushing TDs, and was a consensus All-American as a freshman

RB Herschel Walker, GeorgiaYear: 1980
Buzz: The best freshman season in college football history? This guy's.

WR Randy Moss, Marshall
Year: 1996
He had 78 receptions for 1,709 yards (21.9 yards per catch) and an astounding 28 TD catches as the Herd won the Division I-AA title in its last season at that level

G Steve Hutchinson, Michigan
Year: 1995
Buzz: He arrived on campus as a defensive lineman, was redshirted as a true freshman while he transitioned to the offensive line, then was a first-team All-Big Ten selection as a redshirt freshman in '95.

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, who guided USC to two national titles but also oversaw the program during a time in which the school broke NCAA rules, was selected for induction into USC's Athletic Hall of Fame on Monday.

He was one of 16 athletes or coaches selected; among the others were former football players Jack Del Rio, now the defensive coordinator of the Denver Broncos

Former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe says the team has finished its investigation into his allegation that he was subjected to harassment and hostility for speaking out in favor of gay marriage, but that the team is now breaking its promise to release the results of that investigation.

Kluwe will hold a news conference today in response to what he says is the Vikingsí failure to grant him access to the report from the independent investigators who were hired by the team.

Still think there should be a separate discussion for this, it affects the current team since Priefer (inexplicably to me) is still on the coaching staff.

NFL reporter's reaction:
Quote:
@mikefreemanNFL: Not sure how the Vikings can justify not releasing Kluwe report. Pretty disgraceful.

Not only is Kluwe vindicated, by not releasing report, indicates organization culture may have been worse than even Kluwe knew.

It's been reported that the organization considers the report "damaging and embarrassing".

i'm in no way apologizing or legitimizing the Vikings' or Priefer's actions, but i would assume they have not released the report yet because they are discussing their options with their labor attorneys regarding what to do about Priefer's continued employment.


and yes, this topic should have been a separate discussion thread all along, as Viking and non-Viking fans come to this forum for updates on the matter but would presumably give up trying to find it.
