    Harvin Added To Pro Bowl Roster

    Didn't see this posted yet.

    http://blog.vikings.com/2010/01/04/harvin-added-to-pro-bowl-roster/

    Vikings rookie WR Percy Harvin, who this season set a new team record for kickoff return TDs with 2 and last week set new team records for all-purpose yardage and rushing yards by a WR, has been added to the NFC’s Pro Bowl roster as a kick returner.

    Originally, Philadelphia’s DeSean Jackson was tabbed as the NFC’s Pro Bowl returner as well as a WR. Because Jackson was selected at 2 positions, he will participate in the Pro Bowl at the position for which he received the most voting points (WR) and Harvin will be added to the roster and occupy the other slot.

    Harvin is the only Viking in team history with2 kickoff return TDs and his 27.5-yard kickoff return average is the 2nd-best single-season mark in team history. He is just the 2nd Vikings kick returner ever to be named to the Pro Bowl (Koren Robinson – 2005).

    Awesome!

    Just having him back there has positively affected our starting field position. For example The Giants short kick to open the game to Dugan....starting at the 40.

    Some teams would rather do that than Risk Percey takin to da house on them....I love it...win win situation for us

    I say we trade him. The drop off from him and Reynaud / Johnson is minimal. Just kidding everyone. Just a joke! LOL

    So the NFL has 9 roster spots to fill for the NFC now. Because no Vikings will be there.
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.

    The Vikings have alot of rookies go to the Pro Bowl , don't know if it is because I don't pay as close attention to other teams or not , but it seems like the Vikings do it pretty often.
