    Percy Harvin is so good!

    I'm the type of person who likes to reminisce about old **** and never let it go, and I got to thinkin'...why the FLOOP did we never use Percy like we do now when we had Brett Favre?
    And I'm also sitting here right now watching the NFL Replay of the Patriots @ Seahawks game this past week, and just seeing Sid make those catches, man does he just catch everything near his hands, goodness I miss him...oh well.
    None

    Rice just couldn't stay healthy in Minny. Awesome talent, but injury-prone.

    Well ... Percy was a rookie and had to get used to the game. He still had 6 TD catches and nearly 950 total yards while winning rookie of the year and going to the Pro Bowl as a kick returner. Don't know what you expected out of a rook.

    Sidney Rice has great hands ... but is not productive or worth real money. he has now played 15 games in Seattle and has a whopping 760 yards and 4 TDs. Hardly true "No. 1" numbers.

    One way or the other if we really have 2 talents as good as Adrian and Percy are then they should be dominating defenses and scoring points when we get in the red zone.

    I am happy how we have used pH so far and unhappy with the way AP has been used.

    He's on pace for 130 receptions, that would be 2nd all time behind only Marvin Harrison in 2002 who had 143. Harvin is also on pace for 40 carries and 32 kick returns(Harrison had 2 carries, 0 kick returns).

    and....

    AD is on pace to score 5 TD's
    Walsh is on pace to attempt 45FG's
    Carlson is on pace to catch 8 passes
    Simpson is on pace to score 0 TD's
    Vikings are on pace to win 10 games
    JA is on pace to get 11 sacks
    Ponder is on pace to have 19 interceptions/fumbles

    .....just saying

    Exactly. It isn't about the yards or the catches but the TD's scored and the points produced.

    For all of the talent we supposedly have in Peterson,Harvin and Rudolph the team should see that talent leading to more point scored.

    Fair enough. Harvin leads the league in receptions right now.
    He also has the best kick return average in the NFL among players with atleast 4 returns(12 returns for 37.1 average). His career average of 27.8 is 4 yards per attempt more than Devin Hester.
    Harvin has 5 kick return TD on 110 attempts. Hester has 5 kick return TD on 156 attempts.

    You don't need to get too creative with the numbers to show that Harvin is a beast.

    We're are scoring 24.3pts per game. The league leading patriots score 31.3, 7 more per game.
    Fact is while Harvin and Peterson are great players, there are a lot of great players(Rudolph for all his promise is still not a great player IMHO). And of course QB is far and away the most important position. Percy Harvin(or any other wr/rb) will never have the impact of a Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers.

    Harvin had 24td his first three years.
    Peterson had 67td his first 5 years.
    It's not like these guys don't know how to score, the TD will come as the season progresses.
