Vikings Have Traded Percy Harvin to The Seahawks

This is a mistake. I'm glad our team didn't give up that much for an overrated wr.

I think you guys instantly praising this move need to look at the flip side.

The Vikings have literally nothing at wide receiver. If this guy is such a proven commodity why were they so quick to unload him and he isn't even 25? I'm not saying he won't be successful, but I am going to wait and see how this plays out for both parties. It could end up the Vikings just robbed the Seahawks.

they saw an opportunity to pick up a first rounder for a guy that they weren't using because he didn't fit what they do on offense (which is pretty much just hand the ball to ADP) and who wasn't happy being there and had been trying to get out.

it just wasn't working. he didn't fit. he knew it and they knew it.

Now the Vikings become the interesting team in the WR mix. Do they make a late charge for Jennings/Wallace? With a 2nd pick in the first round, do they take a shot a Victor Cruz (who just got a 1st round tender)? If they want to replace Harvin's role, will they look to Tavon Austin in the draft?

I Dno bout Wallace but Jennings to Minny makes sense. Jennings stay in the north and get to play GB twice a year. And Minny get a no.1 WR.

Minny can grab Jennings and still draft Tavon or whoever they want with the Seattle pick. Look for Minny to add two receivers through the Draft and FA.

panther fans need a team that can poo out a winning season and a trip to the playoffs.

not sure how anyone could feel bullish about this team until they actually prove something.

Optimism, sweet sweet optimism, never hurt a soul. For once, we actually have some talent to back it up and for once, in a long long while, we get the mojo back. It starts with us.

i'm not changing my tune until this team...this coach, esp. can prove that we can come out the gate winning and pull off winning seasons back to back with a trip to the playoffs or two.

i'm tired of optimism not being rewarded.

Agreed. Harvin is a gadget player, not an elite receiver. The Seahawks gave up too much but they can afford to give away draft picks because they have an elite defense and a solid offense.

Funny. For the first time in 4 years I am optimistic about the team.

8-8 here we come!

Yeah i think Seahawks feel they have almost all the pieces and just need one or two holes filled to make a deeper playoff run.

We will see how that works out.

A first round pick is a lot for any WR

Um doesn't fit? I don't buy that for a second. Him leaving Minnesota is on his own ego and injury troubles.

I don't understand your logic that having Peterson means they don't want or need another threat. Now they have plenty of options thanks to the Seahawks throwing draft picks at them. They will get another receiver.

price was arguably too high but the Hawks filled a need. Still have cap room to spend on an Abraham or a Freeney to add some depth on the D specifically the pass rush. Exciting times in Seahawk land!

I feel ya.

Ive chosen to lead a charge of blind faith homerism. We got Cam, Luke and Gman, this aint the old Panthers.

i guess if the goal is breaking even....

lol.

it's more the coaching staff that i can't get excited about. i think that a good young group of talented guys is here and aside from another playmaker or two on offense (mainly for the post-smitty era) and some upgrades in the secondary, i feel good about the team. oh yeah...and the OL.

that coaching staff, tho...i just haven't seen what i want to see. i do have faith in gettleman to get this team what they need on the roster, tho. game management will be the only issue.
