There’s no better time than now to get started with a reviewing of Percy Harvin. I know we’re rewinding time a bit, however, although he’s no longer on the team, he had an impact of what we are experiencing today. As you may know already, WR Percy Harvin was traded to the SeaChickens for a 1st round draft pick, which is how the Vikings acquired our 2013 1st round pick in Xavier Rhodes. We then brought on a rookie in Cordarrelle Patterson and “stole” the Packers’ WR Greg Jennings. I’d like to proudly welcome all 3 aboard the ship and wish them a happy new year!

As for Harvin, some are now either loving or hating him. It was recently reported that he has a torn labrum in his hip which may require surgery after he gets a second opinion on Tuesday. It’s undeniable that Percy was a very explosive player for the purple and when he was fully healthy, he was a potent addition to the offense. Would you agree or disagree that the Vikings coaching staff and front office, namely Mr. Rick Spielman, did a great job with making such a difficult roster change and decision?

Now that the 90-man roster is in Training Camp, the fans and media are now recognizing how well put together the staff has made the team. Coach Frazier and Rick Spielman, along with the rest of the coaching staff, is doing a great job with keeping to their guns and getting strong support and leadership from the veteran players. There is a vibe in camp that is resonating to fans outside the Mankato walls and the smell of success is in the air for the 2013 Vikings!
