Vikings Giving Fans The Hard Sell On Harvin


The Vikings were probably expecting a rash of negative, or at least semi-negative, analysis of their choice to select Percy Harvin with their first round pick.  However, they have countered to skeptics, like myself, quite quickly.

I have to admit, when I watched the most recent video on the Vikings Website (click here to see it) I actually started to warm up to the idea that they passed on Oher for Harvin.  The video depicts the whole process of them picking Harvin.  It includes footage from within the Vikings war room, Harvin getting the call from the Vikings, crowd reaction at Winter Park, and a conversation with Harvin when he arrives in Minnesota.

The conversation is probably the most interesting part.  During the car ride, he mentioned that a few teams were also targeting him.  You could clearly hear him say that the Patriots wanted him, and immediatly after he sounds like he is naming another team but it’s kind of hard to hear.  It sounds like “Colts” to me.  Click the link and let me know what you think he said.

At any rate, the Vikings P.R. department is working hard to get the fans juiced about this upcoming season, and they’re doing a pretty good job of it.  The more I watch of the kid, the more I think he has the potential to be this year’s rookie of the year.

We will see.
