    Frazier defends limiting Harvinís role

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-harvins-role/

    By Mike Florio

    Rosenthal recently pointed out that Vikings receiver Percy Harvin wasnít on the field for nearly half of Minnesotaís offensive snaps in a 24-20 loss to the Buccaneers. On Wednesday, Vikings coach Leslie Frazier defended the decision to give Harvin reduced reps.

    ďThereís nothing he has to prove,Ē Frazier said, per Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com. ďWe know what Percyís capable of doing. Heís a big-time playmaker, whether itís on kickoff return or playing wide receiver. Itís just a matter of our using his strengths to our greatest advantage, to our teamís advantage and picking out spots when we do that.Ē

    Quarterback Donovan McNabb agrees. ďA lot of people talked about the percentage and the plays,Ē McNabb said. ďI felt like he was on the field all the time with us, because every time I look up, heís either getting the ball or whatever it may have been.Ē

    Maybe if our best receiver played in the second half we would win. Is this a joke? Why don't we take Peterson out the second half too?

    As Vikings try to get offense going, putting Harvin on field more will be part of the plan

    ó The Minnesota Vikings are trying to put wide receiver Percy Harvin on the field more.

    In case anyone missed it....

    Bill Musgrave, though, said Harvin is one of the teamís best blockers and is not by any means automatically out when the Vikings want to run.

    Well, we should be seeing improvement every week. And we will need to see it this week if we are going to compete.

    I wonder if they are still asking the players what they like to do the best and if they are still matching the scheme to fit the players.


    ......snicker........

    In the end I'm still with my good friend Purple Floyd on this one........We will just keep getting better each and every week. For some strange reason I think this is gonna be the week we see it all finally click, and not just for a portion of the game.

    Really Donovan? Maybe when you "look up" you might try getting the ball to him more. sheeesh

    Heís a big-time playmaker, whether itís on kickoff return or playing wide receiver. Itís just a matter of our using his strengths to our greatest advantage, to our teamís advantage and picking out spots when we do that.Ē
    Here is a thought coach. How about in the second half of the game.
