    If their injury dates were swapped would you be bragging that Harvin didn't miss a single game with his injury, but AD missed a half a season? Bet not.

    You throw a stat out there claiming that Harvin was injured or dinged up on 35-40 weeks during his career & when he played during most of those weeks you claim he can't handle injuries.
    Peterson missed the final 4 weeks of 2011 when he tore up his knee.

    I'd say AD was tougher cause he played through a sports hernia and Harvin didn't return from a sprain or bruised ego or over inflated attitude that landed him on IR, last season.

    Wasn't talking about post season, just confused. I saw he missed 4 games in 2011, assumed it was for the knee injury, but apparently it was an ankle injury that kept him out of those games. My bad.

    Let's say Harvin is less predictable (on all levels) than Jennings.
    Let's say Harvin is less reliable than Jennings.

    Not fair to try to fully dismiss the migraines as not an injury/production. It is a physical ailment not an injury. It could be likened to the flu. People don't choose to be injured (and still remain on a roster), don't choose to have suspensions (chose their actions), or choose to have ailments that take them off the playing field and limit production. But they all have their production limited due to these things. That has to be taken into account, missed games are missed games.

    I think it is fair to say that Harvin has consistently been injury prone, one can take into account his college injuries also. They follow Harvin in current conversation by the media where I don't hear that from the Jennings side.

    If things go the way they are going now, Jennings will make more games over the same time as Harvin's pro career. We know Harvin's immediate future will hold him out most of the season, we don't know Jennings injury future but he is slated to play opening day and Harvin isn't. All Jennings has to do is show up for opening day and he has beat Harvin for playing time if they are in deed tied for time missed due to injury at this moment.

    Have fun with that.
