#12 Is Looking Forward To Playing With The Uhh… Quarterback


Okay, I’m poking a little fun at Percy Harvin here.  During his press conference he had a tendancy say the word “uhh” in between every other word, which in the end is actually understandable from someone who’s just had his life change dramatically and now a bunch of reporters want to know about it. 

He also said, in one of the more humerous monents of his presser, that he’s looking forward to playing with guys like Adrian Peterson, Bernard Berrian, and “the quarterback.”  He even said it twice.  So either Harvin doesn’t know who the Vikings current quarterbacks are or he’s being sensitive to the fact that there is an open compeition between Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels.  Either way, it was pretty funny, especially when a little later someone in the room asked him if he could throw.  He responded that he can throw it 40 or 50 yards, but not to expect it to be in a straight line.

Harvin actually presented himself very well, and there was a certain humble and gratious attitude about him.  He seemed to have a good sense of humor and even directly answered some tough questions regarding his past.  My first impression is that he is genuine about wanting to move on and play some pro football.

At the end of the presser, Coach Childress presented Harvin with a jersey that had number twelve on it.  This will be Harvin’s number (we’re not retiring it for Frerotte??) with the Vikings, as his college number of one is not to be worn by wide outs under NFL rules.
