  1. Any more to go on?

  2. He REALLY wants to play Sunday – he has said so a few times. I think he will be cranky if he doesn’t get at least a few touches this week. I know PC wants to be safe, but it appears that Harvin is chomping at the bit to get on the field – especially against the Viks!

  3. doubledink says:

    Sweet. He must be getting a full week of practice w/o pain. I’ll still believe it when I see it on Sun.

  4. sluggo42 says:

    Oh yaahhhhh

  5. Maybe he looks at the team’s record and decides he doesn’t want to be left out of this any longer…so even if coming back after the bye is safer, he thinks it is time to join in the fun.

  6. I’d really like to see him since I’ll be at the game. I don’t see any significant reason for him not to if he doesn’t have any problems in practice this week. Maybe 15 plays or so to help knock the rust off.

  7. Antideluvian says:

    Yes it is Percy, yes it is.

  8. Welcome home

  9. montanamike2 says:

    Wow, what kind of team will we field this Sunday?

  10. sluggo42 says:

    Tate on one side baldy on the other, with Percy in the slot?
    The new and improved 3-amigos

  11. Interesting to see what happens at KR. Will the team continue with Kearse or turn that position over to Harvin?

  12. raymaines says:

    Maybe Robert Turbin is the one who suffers when PH gets on the field?

    We know Marshawn Lynch isn’t going to get his carries cut. Common wisdom says there will be the same number of passes divided between four receivers rather than three, or maybe Kerse just goes to the bench.

    But I’m proposing there will be an extra 5 or 6 passes per game and they will come at the expense of The Turbonator’s rush attempts.

  13. I’m sorry, but if I’m in charge, Percy doesn’t play. Things are starting to click on offense, and Harvin has yet to prove he can practice for a whole week, let alone do that and play a game. IMO, Harvin a) needs to prove he’s healthy before playing, and B) has to prove he deserves playing time. As well as Kearse, Tate, and Baldwin played this week, there isn’t much room for anyone else.

    Plus, given Percy’s history as a malcontent since HS, it would be a good test to sit his ass next week, knowing how bad he wants to play vs Minny; see just how dedicated he really is, especially since he’s coming off a major injury. Sit him till after the bye to ensure he’s integrated into the offense, healthy, and not a ball hog.

    If the line blocks, this team doesn’t need Harvin; if it doesn’t, Harvin won’t save them all by his 5-8″ self…

  14. AKhawkFan says:

    Imagine empty back sets! Tate and Kearse put wide, Percy and Baldwin in the slots and miller coming off a chip block. Oh damn!

  15. AKhawkFan says:

    With the explosive plays that Harvin can create, and the extra attention he commands from a defense, I would think that is a 7point advantage to Seattle in any givin game. If he is ready to play, you play him. No question about it.

  16. ChrisHolmes says:

    “Imagine empty back sets! Tate and Kearse put wide, Percy and Baldwin in the slots and miller coming off a chip block. Oh damn!”

    My thoughts exactly.

    I love Bevell’s empty back sets. He’s doing some nice things with them. Tate has been playing the Percy role lately with the screens and such. Get both of those guys on the field at the same time and watchout.

  17. montanamike2 says:

    Maybe use Harvin as a decoy most of the time just to keep them on their toes, don’t let him go off yet or risk re injury.

  18. First off, Percy Harvin is 5’11”. Taller than either Tate or Baldwin. You don’t help your point when you have to lie or exaggerate to make it.

    Obviously they don’t play him this week if he can’t make it through practice this week. Who ever said that’s what is going to happen? You don’t trade a 1st round pick and pay someone a bunch of money to ride the bench. Regardless of whether or not Kearse played well last week. Good grief.

  19. MikeFromNewJersey says:

    You think youre better than me..Mandlebomb! Mandlebomb! Mandlebomb!

  20. MikeFromNewJersey says:

    Percy Mandlebomb!

  21. I want him to get on the field as soon as possible so that we can stop talking about what he MIGHT DO and instead talk about what he HAS DONE. Get the uniform dirty. There’s 53 other guys and a practice squad that are ahead of him in my book.

    With that said, I wish him the best.

  22. JazBadAzz says:

    I bet the tickets are sky high to see #11

  23. If Percy finishes the season with 0 receptions with 0 yards, I consider this a good thing. He’s a talented player, hopefully talented enough to see the tops start coming off of defenses, and REALLY opening things up for tate and Baldwin. It’s unfortunate that this is coming at the expense of a rapidly growing Kearse, but it is Percy Harvin…

  24. We actually don’t really need PH as a contributing WR. All we need is PH the decoy. Ought to really open things up for everyone else.

  25. Wow. Just wow.

  26. Screensmoke says:

    Sttbm- had to go back and read your post twice to make sure I wasn’t hallucinating -as well as Tate Baldwin and kearse played this week not much room for anyone else? Really? We can agree to disagree in that one- you can’t be serious- the number one reciever with yards after catch in the NFL and you don’t think he’s worthy to play in our offense- in fact I just give you a pass on this! There is no way you could be serious- now if your saying he may comeback and not pkay 100 percent because if injury ok I get it.- if he comes back 100 percent this offense will explode! – that is a guarantee – who do you think we are dealin with here- the guy is unfricken real if he’s 100 percent! I think you might change your tune on this one. I respect your opinion bro but you may be missing the boat on this one- go study some film and tell me different.

  27. Screensmoke says:

    Wow-talkin about going to any length!something tells me his wife left him for more than just for another woman- LOL!:-)

  28. Didn’t we go into the last game with just 4 WRs?
    I wouldn’t even let Kearse return kicks let alone Percy.
    If Christine Michael is active let him return KOs.
    Did they try him out there during camp?
    Save Percy for desperate times in the playoffs.

  29. JazBadAzz says:

    Every team in the league would take Percy right now and start him, we’re just lucky enough to be 9-1 with out him. Now that we do and with 4 of 6 home games and probably home field advantage…. this is a dream come true! Stay healthy team and we got this!!!! #GoHawks

  30. Guys, do y’all even read my whole comments?! Duh, of course saying Harvin is 5′-8″ is an exaggeration…sheesh. My point was he isn’t superman, able to save a team single handedly. That’s all. An obviously failed attempt at humor.

    Also, if you read my entire comment, you would see I do not advocate not playing Harvin; only waiting till after the bye to ensure 1) he’s healthy 2) he’s integrated into the offense and 3) he’s on board 100%.

    I’m as excited as anyone to see our 11 million dollar toy do his thing, just wary of possible Galloway syndrome.

  31. bird_spit says:

    This team wins with or without Percy. I expect this game will be over at half time with Percy, and he make significant contribution. Sunday is a perfect warm up for the NO game. It will be the live fire practice they all need to get it right. I think hawks have a 85% chance of going 15-1 as long as Lynch stays healthy. The addition of Harvin makes it close to 90%. His true value is having the offense clicking for the playoffs. He’ll ya, Hawks will kick some ass.

    The bye week could not be more perfectly timed.

  32. ChrisHolmes says:

    I think if he’s a 100% healthy, he has to play. He’s getting paid. You play the guy.

    Minnesota is not Atlanta. They’re better by quite a bit. We’re going to have to put up points, especially if AP gets loose a couple times.

  33. trout_hound says:

    Looks like the content gods washed all the humor out of this thread…

  34. chuck_easton says:

    Um, guys…

    Let’s just pump the brakes on this whole Harvin debate. He hasn’t even been at a full practice since being added to the 53.

    Still has to make it through three practices this week. Then IF he’s not experiencing any soreness, and IF the coaches feel he has a good grasp of the offense, THEN he might be active on Sunday.

    He hasn’t shown an ability to go a full week of practice without pain.

    Everything (for this week at least), will be clear on Sunday at 12:00 Noon Seattle time. That is when the team must provide the official list of their 7 inactive players for Sunday’s game. If Harvin’s name isn’t on the inactive list he’s suiting up. If his name is on the list he’s not.

    Let the guy get through a week of practice before we start debating all the woulda, coulda, shoulda’s of what Harvin will bring.

    It’s clear Harvin wants to play against his old team. But it’s not his call. If Carroll doesn’t think he’s ready he won’t be active.
