Seattle Seahawks Percy Harvin was on The Jim Rome Show on Thursday. Among other things, Harvin discussed making the transition to his new team in Seattle, along with the rumors that he did not get along with his former quarterback in Minnesota, Christian Ponder.

Harvin on Ponder: “I never had a problem with him; I’ve never stated I had a problem with him. I’ve never seen a problem he’s had with me; he’s never said he’s had a problem with me. (We were) on the same page, it’s just a lot of articles that tried to pick up on things that weren’t there.”

On facing Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner every day in practice: “It’s lovely. I always said I wanted to get better going against lengthy defenders with longer arms, they tend to give me the most problems. So, when I got the trade here, going against these guys every day, has been a blessing in disguise.”

Danny O’Neil of 710 ESPN Seattle wonders if the Seahawks’ off-the-field issues will derail a promising 2013 season.

Adam Schein of ranks Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman as one of the most indispensable defensive players in the league.

Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times talks with receiver Jermaine Kearse, who recently had laser eye surgery to help better focus on the ball on the field.

Aaron Schatz of Football Outsiders writes that Seattle special teams standout Heath Farwell is the top special teams gunner in the last three years, with 50 combined tackles since 2010.

Clare Farnsworth of delves into tight end Luke Wilson’s days as a multi-sport athlete back in Canada.

Erik Kuselias of Pro Football Talk interviews Bobby Wagner about Seattle’s recent team meeting and the budding rivalry with San Francisco.

Former Seahawks long snapper Jean-Phillippe Darche is scheduled to graduate from the University of Kansas medical school in next year.

Blogging the Boys re-created the Cowboys seven-round draft board by photos taken of owner Jerry Jones in the team’s draft room. Interesting read. Seattle third-round draft choice Jordan Hill was the only Seahawks player listed on the Cowboys’ the board.

Mike Freeman of CBS Sports ranks the greatest coaches in NFL history by decade.

    I cannot wait for the open OTAs… Watching our offense against our defense.. Specifically our group of WR vs. Legion of Boom. Could be the best match up of the season ;)

    I don’t know if it’s the coffee or what, but that Wagner interview got me really pumped up. That Sunday Night game vs SF is going to be incredible.

  3. ChrisHolmes says:

    I read that Dallas Cowboys article yesterday. It was pretty interesting.

  4. Carlsonkid says:

    Wow , I knew Farwell was a great special teamer ; didn’t know he was the #1 gunner in the league !

    I’m really hoping the Lasik helps Kearse with his drops . He has a chance to be an outstanding receiver if he can eliminate those . Good size and speed , can play flanker or slot .. if this fixes his drops he could wind up being a steal as an UDFA .

  5. Dallas sucks and Kiffin will have to prove his 300 lb lineman and little backers can still keep the Tampa 2—and Kiffin himself–relevant. I’m skeptical.

  6. Good for Darche! He was a very solid player.

  7. Darn that Schein, I hadn’t thought of what could happen if we lost Sherman to injury, (or whatever.) Sherman played 1099 snaps last season. The only two players on the field more were ET (1109 snaps) and Kam (1126.)

    Last season, PC pulled Sherm, ET and Kam whenever the game was well in hand. It seems almost contradictory, but those three DBs were pulled from the game whenever they were having their best games, too. Seems like not too long ago, SEA only pulled good players when they were having exceptionally poor games, or were badly injured. B.Browner would have had more snaps than Sherm except for the 4-game suspension. PC was giving the backups as much playing time as possible, (whenever he felt it was safe to.) That’s quite different than JH (SFs HC.) How long does it take before there’s little drop off when the DBs backups come in?

    That same thing happened, but more frequently with the LBs.
