Is the Percy Havin trade worth it? Weigh in and let us know in the poll below. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but according to reports, the Seattle Seahawks gave up first and seventh-round picks in this year’s draft, along with a mid-round pick in 2014.

In return the Seahawks received one of the most explosive playmakers in the game in Harvin. Also, Seattle likely will have to sign the mercurial, University of Florida product to a long-term deal to keep him.

Do you like Seattle’s trade for receiver Percy Harvin?

John McGrath of The News Tribune says that he’s not looking forward to a matchup of brothers John and Jim Harbaugh when Baltimore takes on San Francisco in this year’s Super Bowl, the first time two brothers have faced off as head coaches in the big game.

Specifically, McGrath is not looking forward to the two weeks of endless stories on the two brothers leading up to NFL championship.

However, I think this storyline will pale in comparison to the win one for Ray Lewis storyline, which I’ve had enough of as well.

McGrath: I guess it all comes down to the Harbaugh brothers. Lunatic Jim against John, whoever he is. We’ll find out. We’ll find out about the brothers, and the parents, and the home that produced a collision of coaches unprecedented in American sports.

Jim Nantz, on Sunday, asked the first question. Only 999,999 to go.”

So who do you like in the big game? Are you sticking with the NFC West and going with San Francisco? Or does the thought of Jim Harbaugh hoisting the Lombardi trophy make your breakfast rise up in your esophagus? Vote below.

Who do you like to win Super Bowl XLVII?

NFL comes down hard on Saints, Gregg Williams

In this Sept. 26, 2010, file photo, Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams looks on during an NFL football game against the Atlanta Falcons at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. Williams, the former Saints defensive coordinator, apologized for running a bounty program that targeted opposing players for injuries. In a statement, he says the program was a "terrible mistake and we knew it was wrong while we were doing it." The NFL on Friday said that it had found between 22 and 27 Saints participated in the program over the last three seasons, and that players including quarterbacks Kurt Warner and Brett Favre were targeted.

Once again, NFL Roger Goodell shows he’s the boss in today’s decision on discipline for the people involved in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal.

According to NFL.com, New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Peyton has been suspended a year without pay. New Orleans general manager Mickey Loomis has been suspended eight games, and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has been suspended indefinitely, with his suspension up for review at the end of the year.

Also, the Saints have been fined $500,000 and will have to give up the team’s second-round picks in the 2012 and 2013 NFL Drafts.

New Orleans Saints defensive assistant head coach Joe Vitt has been suspended six games without pay.

Heavy-handed? I would say it’s a bit on the strong side, but once again Goodell has got the league’s attention that he will not put up with this type of behavior.

How do you feel about NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s discipline for the Saints’ bounty scandal?
