Harvin A Warrior At WR

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 7, 2010 – 9:25 pm

My appreciation and respect for our veterans and current Military personnel prevents me from referring to athletes as heroes, or athletic performances as heroic. So I won’t call Percy Harvin’s performance on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals heroic.

Rather, I’m characterizing Harvin as a warrior for the way he competed and produced at the Vikings most critical juncture of the season.

On a bum ankle he injured last week in the 1st quarter at New England, Harvin played the entire game and was arguably the most indispensible player. He hauled in 9 receptions for 126 yards and also ran back 5 kickoff returns for 88 yards. Six of Harvin’s 9 receptions resulted in 1st downs, including a 6-yard grab on 4th and 4 in the 4th quarter.

All of those numbers are impressive in their own right, but they become astonishing when you consider Harvin missed Wednesday and Thursday practices and was limited in practice on Friday. I watched him all week at Winter Park labor around and work his tail off to rehab the ankle, or at least heal the ankle to the point where he would have a chance to suit up for the game.

The NFL is full of ultra-competitive players, so I won’t argue that Harvin is unique in his competitiveness. But we all, including NFL players, have different pain tolerance levels. And it’s not even pain tolerance as much as it is the ability to perform, while feeling pain and while being inhibited by the injury. Harvin was able to brush all of that aside and be a true game-changer for the Vikings on Sunday.

“He’s a baller,” Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress said of Harvin after the game. “If every day was Sunday…he’s a little bit like Brett (Favre) from that standpoint; he loves to play the game. It’s hard to keep him down and deny it.”

This ankle injury goes back to last week’s game in New England. Harvin sustained the injury in the 1st quarter, came off the field and then re-entered the game and played well. The injury bothered him all week leading up to Sunday’s game and he was even listed as questionable on the injury report. He was able to suit up and play and there were several times during the game where he had to exit to either compose himself or have the ankle examined.

But time after time, he kept coming back into the lineup and producing.

Harvin is a warrior for the Vikings and he’s also a big reason why the Vikings were able to edge the Cardinals on Sunday.

    Some have stated we should hire Gruden over Childress. That wouldn’t be much of a move: Gruden’s lifetime winning % is .540, and Childress is at .535!

    Great Points Frederick– exactly what I have said– for his first NFL head coaching gig, Childress has been excellent. GREAT JOB VIKINGS!

    A coaching change mid-season is rarely a good idea. A win like today is very special— the Vikes through the years rarely comeback from being down two TDs– Favre never gives up and displays such poise– he is still one of the best.

    Frederick Jones, you do not give yourself enough credit– anyone can look up information, it takes wisdom to understand it and translate it into life.
    What we have here is a failure to communicate. WHAT EVERYONE HERE FAILS to realize is that greatness is shaped, formed, molded, and developed through adversity, trials, and failures. Yes, you must fail to succeed. Childress has incredible courage to confront this job week in and week out with several million people screaming ” loser” at him. I was on the fence about Childress– part of me wanted him gone, but arguing with all these naysayers I have developed a deep respect for Childress.

    i consider Michael Lombardi to have one of the best or the best football mind out there. on http://www.nfl.com, he wrote a article that Chilly would never lead the Vikings to the super bowl, he said his communication and leadership skills are some of the worse he seen in a head coach. i agree-we will never get no championship game as long as Chilly is here

    well several sports sites are questioning who made the play calling in the 4th stating that if Favre didnt call the plays, he sure had a big influence in deciding them..

    We will never know but what makes you think that childress made those calls after what we have seen from him?

    the offense today is not something you would show on film. It seemed more like the talent won the game rather then coaching “system”…favre said it ” we wont win many games like this”

    We saw it against the jets and saw it today in the 4th…give Favre freedom and the offense is completely different. Most of his interceptions are when he is playing childress “system” forcing plays.

  25. By JAC on Nov 7, 2010 | Reply

    BTW its amazing that week after week AP cant pick up a yard either to gain a first down or score in the redzone and thats childress fault..

    STOP with the predictable play calling….Give AP a chance instead of just wanting him to muscle his way every single time..

  26. By mikef2691 on Nov 7, 2010 | Reply

    The game today was won by hustle. It started with Camarillo, kept going with Harvin and it slowly seeped through to some of the other players that they needed to hustle if they wanted to win and look themselves in the mirror in the morning. A great job by the team to pull themselves out of a very deep hole. Let’s hope they can continue to play at that level going forward.

    Be sane and fred, it was nice to win, but lets not get carried away, Farve, Harvin , Peterson, and our Defense willed to a win against the Cardinals, I am personally not goin to be as negative just because we won, but the next 2 games will tell a lot about what we can do, its a bit naive to be so optimistic when we have beat the 1 win Cowboys, 2 win lions, and 3 win cards, Green Bay is on fire right now and thats a huge game, can we do it my heart says yes but … way too early to put chuck knoll and chilly in the same sentence

    ok so nobody is arguing about chillis record as a head coach its the fact that he is a horrible play caller and he is not liked by the players the players have to respect and admire the coach everyone on that team hates childress and how he runs things happy players play harder and play better i would play much harder in a tough situation game like this one with a coach that i had respect for and liked i would never have rallied around him and neither did the team today the team today rallied around favre not chilli. i do also agree with everyone else on this blog when they say this is about our amazing percy harvin he is a straight up beast his first reception after his fumble he ran over that corner showing that he is a receiver thats not gonna give up and he is not going to focus on the mistakes but just work at coming back and making up for those mistakes he will be a receiver to be reckoned with for a long time to come he is one of my favorite players and im glad he had such an outstanding game congrats percy

    I was on the edge of my seat from beginning to end of the game, tonight. Adrian. I agree that, considering we are at war and have true military heroes that include every soldier in combat as far as I’m concerned, that neither Brett Favre nor Percy Harvin should be called heroes. But I do believe they are awe-inspiring and their commitment to the game, their teammates and their courage, determination and grit to leave it all on the field just amazes me. The coach questioned Favre’s ability to play last week – BEFORE he got further injured. I do not know what keeps either he OR Harvin on the field and playing their hearts out, unwaivering, nor Adrian Peterson the way he pushes thru 2, 3, 4 massive players at a time who dare get between him and his goal. But I know kids AND ADULTS who watch them and others who play similarly – for the team rather than personal glory – are experiencing invaluable lessons they can apply to their everyday lives. Thanks, you guys, for giving me something to remember whenever I need to find the courage, strength, to climb another of my own mountains. Congratulations on your well-fought-for victory.

    Just a brief note to the defense, especially Jared: You guys seemed to be so polite, accommodating TO THE OTHER TEAM? the first 3 quarters. Don’t do that, again. You really had me at my wit’s end. I have a heart condition and can only hold my breath for so long, ya know.(LOL) Sometimes the first 3 quarters looked kinda’ like you ran the NY Marathon BEFORE you arrived at the stadium, today. You guys know what to do and just how to get the job done. Last year you guys kicked …ss. Glad to see you started getting your groove back by the 4th quarter — and that overtime! SUPER! You were warriors and it was a beautiful thing to watch. And you all are right. Now that Favre is also coaching, the Vikings are going to head straight back to the top. And this year politics and pity for the other team’s community won’t encourage refs to look the other way, be a factor on calling intentional and vicious late hits or other unprofessional and poor sportsmanship – done to intentionally cripple another player just to win a game by cheating. Wish I had tickets to your next Super Bowl. God bless each and every one of you. Stay healthy. Great job.

    I am glad we won. We needed a win, however Childress still needs to be fired ASAP. The team is still missing that fire and the reason the fire is missing, is because Childress keeps putting it out. Jared Allen sum it up best when he was asked if they (Vikings) won for Childress, Allen stated “we won for us”! The majority of the players think Childress is a joke, the majoity of NFL analysts think Childress is a joke, and of course Viking Nation thinks Childress is a joke…. So Wilf, do something positive for a change and fire Childress……..

    I have to say by the end of the 3rd quarter I was calling for chilly and favre to be ridden out of town on a rail and I have been one of their strongest supporters. I’m still on the fense the the only thing that can save chilly is a SB win. I still believe it can happen especially when rice comes back, I think the team felt the urgency at the end of the 4th quarter and dug deep. Favre has to stop the turn overs and we have to beat the bears next week which I feel we will easy. The win and a packer loss gives us a chance to come within a game when the packers go into the by week.It’s still up in the air.good game harvin,ap,berrian, and even favre because he held in there.We have all the talent and pieces in place all we need is better coaching decisions. If frazier doesn’t get the job next yr this team will again let go of another coach that will go elsewhere and win a SB just as Dungy and Tomlinson has.

    wow, I was at this game and there were a lot of people who left early. Sorry about your luck people, because you missed out on a fantastic ending. All receivers played well. Percy, you are a warrior. There is no bigger heart out there then that of Percy and Adrian. Berrian, I am impressed with todays effort, and finally we got 6 sacs from our defence. The play of the game goes to Greg Camerio… I heard somewhere that he wasn’t that fast, could have fooled me. Outstanding play!!! and Favre way to come from behind, you too are a warrior. Shank is another reliable guy who played well. Man am I hoping this is the beginning of a NFC North championship….

    Chilly has put together a talented team, however he has shown that he does not how to control or fully utilize that talent. His in game management is terrible ( 12 men on the field in Championship game) and his communication skills are horrendous. He doesn’t know how to get the players to believe in him and that is obvious. He is a good coach, but he will never be a great coach! We lost Matt Birk because of him, we lost Chester Taylor because of him. There are constant feuds between him and the players, they don’t respect him and why should they? We have too much talent to have a 3-5 record. Last year we had too much talent to not when the SB. Chilly has gotten us to where we are at, but we need someone else to take us to the next level.

    Percy Harvin plays the game of football with all heart. Just a tremendous athlete. Congrats to B.F., 400 yards plus, a career high. Along with B.C., my feelings are that Darrel B. needs to take some heat also. One quarter and over time does not make a great team. We throw the pass on the goal line twice and miss fire, are you kidding me. This game should have been won in regulation!!! A.P. will score on downs as long as D.B. can become imaginative enough to use other directions besides up the middle. I’ve seen this all season and so have our apponents.
