Here are basic but eye-popping numbers: Percy Harvin had 10 touches last season and gained 245 yards.
Let’s take a look:
1. First game back against Minnesota Harvin makes his first catch on an over route. We’d see this again later in the season.
2. He received another touch against the Vikings and just missed breaking it for a touchdown. After the play, he took a long look at the Vikings’ sideline. They decided not to kick to him again.
3. Back for the playoffs against the Saints, Harvin starts with his only negative gain of the season, a 1-yard loss on this little screen.
4. He goes over the middle against a soft zone to gain nine yards.
5. Here’s that over route again. Same formation, similar result. Both times the DB just missed Russell Wilson’s lofted throw and Harvin made a juggling catch.
6. End around for nine yards against the Saints. The Seahawks ran many of Harvin’s plays toward Doug Baldwin, who became the lead blocker.
7. The first fly sweep of the Super Bowl. Harvin nearly busts this, too.
8. Harvin with another little bubble screen out of the slot. TE Zach Miller and RT Breno Giacomini are on the move to block it.
9. Fly sweep, Part II. Notice the hard sell from Marshawn Lynch and Harvin again running toward Baldwin.
