    Harvin's limited-returns policy under review

    Vikings' limited-returns policy with Percy Harvin is under review

    If x equals y and y equals x, then what is x divided by y? And why isn't 103 yards plus 7 points the right algorithm to convince Vikings coaches that Percy Harvin should return every kick regardless of his offensive responsibilities?

    It really scares me. That being said, he is the best in the business when he hits open field. I'll support it until he gets hurt. Then I'll say that it was a really dumb idea Lol.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Its like being between a rock and a hard place.. yes, he is without doubt one of the better KR in the league and has the real possibility of breaking one each time.. but yes we would like to protect one of our prize assets too! its a tough one!

    We need to pass more to protect our other prize asset too.

    Taught to block, born to run

    Getting a kick return into the end zone isn't as chaotic as it appears. The best strategy is to mix a player born to run (Percy Harvin) and a team taught to block (the Vikings).

    I bet #28 wishes he was playing for a team that was taught to block.

    If LF reckons that the opposition won't kick towards him anyway, then why not put him on the field to reduce the space for other teams to kick it?

    I can't see opposing teams kicking towards him, which means you can work out where they are likely to kick it and gain some sort of advantage by developing a plan around that.
