As anyone who frequents this site knows, I am not afraid to call out a player or coach if they are not living up to their potential. also, if a player is doing well I do my best to give them praise.

That being said, when there was a thread about drafting Harvin prior to his rookie year, I took an uncharacteristic stance against the notion of drafting him. There was no rhyme and no reason for it as I had never even seen so much as a video clip of him playing in college. Most of it was in jest to stir the pot and keep the conversation going but in the end the only thing that mattered was that I took the position that he would be a failure in the NFL.

Well, I may get critical of the players and coaches but I am man enough to admit when I am wrong and in this case I was as wrong as I have even been and to that point I apologize to Harvin and all of those who supported drafting him. What I have seen from him has impressed be beyond belief. For a guy his size he is a fearless blocker, and aggressive runner and he has shown he can be a weapon in the slot. On top of that he has shown that he can be a deep threat in the passing game and he is the best return man I have ever seen on a Vikings team in my life time.

If every player on the team gave the effort he does on every play I believe we would be in playoff contention even with the lack of talent on the team.

So in closing, Thanks Percy for displaying pride, a will to win and a desire that is all too lacking on the team and I hope you play for the Vikings for a long time.

I've always had a wait and see approach toward him and he's been impressive. His strength and ability to push piles and drag groups of defenders has impressed me the most. His migraine issues and the Vikings inability to get him involved more on offense are going to prevent him from getting to Canton someday. He would be putting up Welker like numbers or better if we had better coaching.

Lol.

if you are going to start slinging 5 syllable words around make sure you know what they mean.:rofl:

Then come back and explain to me what part was exaggerated.

My only issue with Percy is durability and he a few games he has been on the sidelines in the second half where we need him to make a big play..

Percy is a bonafide stud. He's a little guy but god does he make up for it!
But your right, his migraines are a bit worrying. As my mom has them all the time, i know what it does to a person and i can only feel sorry for him.

Pink Floyd is the greatest band ever and the Vikings are my favorite sports team so the marriage of the two seemed like a perfect fit. I did look into using my other favorite band (Which is KISS) but the name "Purple Pucker", well I just couldn't go there.

While I disagree that Pink Floyd is the greatest band ever, I will admit that I think you have the coolest name on this place. Like IBP said, I was poppin some serious poppyseeds (see what I did there???) and ibuprofen, and I may have even broke out the flinstones vitamins, I don't remember.

Good post, I wasn't either around for those discussion or just didn't care enough to log them in my memory. Either way, it's about time you eat crow. =P

HI there this is my first official vikings post as I just found this forum. I remember watching Harvin in the BCS Championship, the guy was pure guts, he was playing on a sprained ankle and the commemorators your continuously comment how hed been playing hard all season, If I remember right he had a great game. After watching that I wasnt at I wasnt unhappy about the pick.
