Harvin Expected To Play; Players Loosening Up

Posted by Mike Wobschall on January 24, 2010 – 3:47 pm

The Vikings have arrived at the Louisiana Superdome in advance of today’s NFC Championship Game against the New Orleans Saints. Several players are on the field loosening up and reports regarding players on this week’s injury report are beginning to emerge.

According to this report from NFL Network’s Kara Henderson, Harvin was of “so far, so good” status 6 hours before kickoff. Now, Harvin is among the players loosening up on the field. Also, this ESPN.com report cites sources as well as Vikings coaches and QB Brett Favre as saying they expect that Harvin will play.

The 2nd set of Vikings team buses just arrived at the stadium, so we’ll update you further if any more reports or information emerges. Also, you can follow the Vikings on Twitter (@VikingsFootball) to stay on top of all the latest information.

    Great day for Packer nation. In the end it will just be another tarnishing year tacked on to Favres diminishing legacy. So glad that the 33 year drought is alive and active!

    That pick wasn’t on all Brett. So much for football brainiacs. Brett tossed the ball but Rice just stood there like he was stuck in mud. That gave the db time to step infront and make the pick. If Rice comes forward towards Farve the db hits him in the back and it’s a penalty.
    When will Packer fans just get over it already?
    Yah the Vikes had turnovers but it obvious the NFL wanted the good story with Katrina and all in the big game. Too many non roughing the passer calls and that last non catch being ruled a catch was a plain FARCE!!

    Go IndyGo!!!!!!

    This is an open letter to Brett Favre to help make him realize that retirement is not a good option!

    First, Brett Favre your the epitome of a person that strives to learn, moves forward and battles to conquer his demons as you grow through life’s learned lessons both on and off the field.

    Brett , you may not realize it, but, you have un-intentionally given yourself a second life as a starting quarter back in the NFL that could have you playing another 2-4 years of not good, but
    GREAT football!!!

    First you have a great coach and management team with the Vikings organization that not only appreciates your ability, (unlike what you were getting from the Packers organization in your final few years), but they understand how you think and what matters to you. You also has a GREAT young bunch of super talented guys around you, Your Team Mates, which are as hunger for the Super Bowl Championship Ring as
    you are, if not before the lose definitely now more after the lose.

    Brett, you said it yourself in an interview not to long ago that to win, “it’s the chemistry of the right players at the right time of the moment” which is very finite. Well, this is the moment, but unbeknownst to you Brett, this
    first year with the Vikings is just the start of what’s to come. Sometimes when things are happening in ones life that’s going great, (“better then one could hope for”) the euphoria one experiences can give them
    the sense of “this is it”, which can and does happen to most people who experience this and then they stop, and give up on the fact that maybe it’s only the beginning of something more, much more!

    I know it’s easy to sit here and write what I think, it’s not what I think, it’s what I know!

    Listening to you Brett over the season on how your were feeling and how you felt from week to week not only mentally but physically, Brett you did not feel your age! Brett as you stated “I felt the best in years”.
    Brett you felt reenergized, and it showed. You played like a 30 year old veteran in his prime, not some 40+ year old trying to recapture his by gone glory years. Brett you know more then anybody that you have
    more to give, you learnt more about the game and more about yourself this last season.

    There is no doubt that during the NFC Championship game you felt your age (maybe a little older then your age), but anyone who took the pounding that you did Brett, would too. Just ask Kurt Warner and Tony Romo how old they felt in there loses?

    But there is something more to why your not finished with the game that has given you so much, and what you Brett, have given so much to the game! And that’s something that only you know!

    There is no doubt that you may want to retire Brett. I know what it’s like to try and make a decision and not be 110% sure whether the decision is right until you’ve made it. Only once
    you’ve committed to a decision will you know if it is the right decision. Because what ever the decision it is that you make when you make it, only if it STICKS without any, and I mean ANY regret, only then
    will you know that you made the right decision.

    Before you make that decision, DON”T short change yourself. This is a once in a life time opportunity that almost nobody gets in their life time, ever, and you have it right in your hands for the second time.

    It’s better to try, and fail then to say NO! There is never regret in ones trying and failing, because you pushed on. But saying NO to not just any opportunity, but this opportunity that is here and now, and yours to make your own, that is a regret that time could never heal.

    If your decision is retirement, I’m sure that I’m not the only one hoping for it not to stick! I’m sure everyone in Minnesota (including myself) will be hoping right up until the kick-off of the first regular season game
    that it doesn’t stick.

    Hope to see you on the playing field.

    From you biggest fan in Canada,
    Wes
