By Air Or By Ground, Harvin Continues To Deliver

Posted by Mike Wobschall on October 4, 2011 – 3:57 pm

The traditional way to combat opposing defenses that crowd the line of scrimmage to stop the running game is to strike downfield in the passing game. The Vikings will continue working on this part of their offense in an effort to free up Adrian Peterson on the ground.

But the Vikings may have found another effective way to challenge defenses who stack the line of scrimmage – attack on the ground with Percy Harvin.

Last week against the Chiefs, it was apparent that Kansas City’s top defensive priority was to suffocate Peterson before he could get into a rhythm on the ground. Peterson did his best to grind through the Chiefs defense, as he gained 80 hard yards on 23 carries. While Peterson continually worked against the interior of the Chiefs defense, the Vikings were able to deploy Harvin to attack the edges of the defense.

Harvin collected 67 rushing yards on 4 carries against Kansas City, with each carry occurring on a play where he would motion toward the center of the formation, take a short pitch from QB Donovan McNabb in the backfield, and then burn the edges of the Chiefs defense to get around the corner and burst upfield. Harvin gained 8, 13 and 23 yards going around the left end of the offense and then he picked up another 23-yard gain going around the right end.

Click here to watch one of Harvin’s 23-yard gains against the Chiefs.

Using Harvin as a RB is nothing new. This has been a part of Harvin’s skill set for years and it’s something the Vikings have been doing on occasion for the past 3 seasons. In fact, Harvin now holds both the single-season and career records for rushing yards by a WR – he has 141 rushing yards this season and 383 for his career. Harvin also holds the single-game rushing record by a WR and he needs just 3 more attempts to break the Vikings career mark for rushing attempts by a WR.

Using Harvin in this way will eventually force opposing defenses to guard the edges, which will help Peterson get rolling on the ground, too. With both Harvin and Peterson posing as threats in the ground game, McNabb and the passing game will have a better chance for success through the air.

    So why is he on the bench all the time?

    Should at 0-2 or 0-3 or 0-4 … when does our second best scorer stay on the field?

    Why is anyone else returning kicks at this point?

    Why is Berrian on the field unless we go 4 WR?

    WHY DOES BERRIANOTHING HAVE MORE SNAPS THEN ONE OF THE BEST PLAYERS IN THE LEAGUE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Harvin doesn’t have the size for the outside WR, so he is used inside and with his ability to break open get yards inside or take one deep. Benard Berrian is taller at 6’1″ and has played outside WR his entire time in the NFL. BB is a bit short for a blue chip WR. Outside WR usually play most downs on any team. No new news here.

    I still think we are going to win this weekend. Reading this article there are some inaccuracies. I agree with Mike W you need the pass to keep Defenses honest. It was my mailbag question which didn’t get published. You can’t use just one receiver or two every time you are in need of yards. Most of the catches on Sunday were by Harvin or Shank. 2 to rest each.

  17. By Mike B. on Oct 4, 2011 | Reply

    To open up the running game you need to get the ball at several places on the field to any open WR. The precentage complete needs to be fairly high, so that the opposing team has to defend the backfield and that soft middle.

  18. By Mike B. on Oct 4, 2011 | Reply

    The Vikings have not been able to get the deep ball outside 20yrds. So opposing teams do stop the most effective part of the game APs running. The QB needs to be a bit of a gunslinger to keep the defense honest. Good points Mike but Harvin and Shank can’t be the only weapons. Goo Vikings.

    I will use a great example in 2009 when Rice was doubled up Farve would throw short P a sses to Harvin or Shank . He would then hand off to AP for big gains. If they move in to stop AP Rice is open. See some issues with our current offense?

    Case study #1: Cris Carter slights Calvin Johnson, saying he’s not elite. Megatron counters by having 24 catches, 321 yards and 8 tds in 4 games, earning recognition and respect from Carter. Halleberrian, on the other hand, responds to his critics by whining about how he has been getting open and doing all he can and getting into a Twitter row with an elected Mn official. Difference in mindsets between a winner and a loser, perhaps?

    I’m tired of pulling for a team that can’t win, 0-4 about to shut the door. If your don’t get Randy Moss it going to cost Frazier his job and the team to be at the bottom. Your got a good quarterback but your don’t haven’t no one to throw to. Let I said last week with Randy Moss your going to be lose, see your next week ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! I HOPE YOUR WIN ! ! ! ! ! !

    Another observation when BB is successful there is a taller talented receiver on the other side of him even in chicago that was true. We really needed Rice this year to give us that one two punch like Lions have.

    Ronald I have a hard time deciphering your statement. If you’re saying we need Moss I will say we need someone with Moss-like talent. Moss would throw a caterer at McNabb after his first game back. The locker room would implode.

    Case study #2: Fed up of watching his qb get mauled and his team lose 2 games, coach Lovie Smith orders his OC Mike Martz to run the ball more. The Bears win their next game. Fed up of his qb’s underwhelming performance against the Vikings, coach Todd Haley publicly berates him. Matt Cassel responds by throwing for 197 yards in the second half i a winning effort. Perhaps it is time for Frazier to reevaluate his “Mr. Nice Guy” strategy?

BUT I DON’T THINK FRAZIER WOULD PUT PONDER IN TIL AFTER THE BYE WEEK AND MAYBE EVEN AFTER THE MONDAY NIGHT GAME AGAINST GB, BECAUSE AFTER THE CARDINALS WE PLAY THE BEARS, PACKERS AND GB THEN THE BYE WEEK…. I FEEL FRAZIER THINKS MCNABB GIVES THE VIKES A BETTER CHANCE TO WIN. FANS WE WONT SEE PONDER TIL MAYBE AFTER THE BYE… SO JUST SUPPORT OUR QB FOR NOW. HE’S NOT THAT BAD BUT NOT THAT GOOD EITHER.

    B. Berrian, 2 receptions in 4 games. 2.he’s the #1 receiver on the team and he has 2 catches? he has more drops than catches Fraizer and Spielman need to wake up and get rid of the guys who cant perform (Berrian, McNabb, Loadholt, Tyrell, Sanford) and let some of the young guys play who might actually be able to throw, catch, or here’s a thought get an interception. This team has no legit threat at getting an interception I wouldn’t be scared to throw into double coverage against this team no one can catch a football. I still think Winfield would be a better safety and let Burton or even Sherels play corner, let Winfield just run around and make plays on defense and let the kid get a shot lets face it McNabb just doesnt have it anymore.

    Rocksalt– of course, because I have control over where I go– I cannot make the changes on the team that I would do as a coach. With my life, I can make choices to affect the outcome; with the Vikings, I can only hope. This is the last stand– funny, last year, we had a game that was our season– we had to win, all was on the line— and it was AZ at the dome. Is all of this rigged?

    Thankfully, we have never endured a drought anywhere near as long as the Lions. I also read on the blog yesterday, I think, some moronic Packer fan saying how the Vikes are always losing– huh? Come again? Vikes usually own this division — so Packer fans better relish this rare oddity of seeing the Vikings struggle– because it won’t last. In fact, we will win at least 9 games this year. If it ain’t the Vikes, I think we all agree, we will rally behind the Lions– they deserve a winning season.

    It would have been a wise move– I would have done it — put in Ponder– you are not saying you are turning on McNabb, you are saying you want the team to win, and so make a change– and give McNabb a wake-up call– put him back in after a game.

    But i do believe McNabb is starting to heat up– maybe he just hasn’t played in so long– he did have some really good throws in the first half Sunday– and even a TD in the second half– 4-4 at the Bye- that is my final answer.

    Disagree about benching McNabb tells the players the season is over. Nonsense by the media— benching McNabb says you want to do something different because so far it is not working– these are grown professionals, not pee wees. To say the team gets a mixed or wrong message if McNabb is benched is nonsense. But I do believe at this point, McNabb’s play has improved and we will see Sunday if he really is leading this team. Had we put Webb or Ponder in for two of our games so far– we most likely would have won those games– we lost by 19 points TOTAL in four games—- Frazier should have tried Webb at the very least– the kid has played several games already– and then let McNabb come back– McNabb still has a lot of talent– just wish we would have tried anything to win some of the games so far— anything– it is a team sport last I checked.

  185. By Titus on Oct 4, 2011 | Reply

    I do believe McNabb will shock most of the naysayers from here on out– but had we thrown Webb in during some struggles in our games, we would be 2-2 right now and not in such a tough predicament– we need to win a high percentage of our games now to have any shot at the playoffs– it is possible, though.

    What would have happened if we had built the team around Webb? There have been teams that have been successful this way. We coulda, shoulda, woulda, been better off using the McNabb money to fix the 3 huge holes in our personnel.

    Put in sherals, and burton on nickel and dime defense. Bench chris cook and asher. This team sure knows how to waste talent, how is sherals on the sidelines with all the plays he’s been making when will frazier appreciate sherals and give him some playing time.

    I’m with some of you here, I have not been a MINNESOTA Vikings fan for over 45 years, because they won so many games and won a few rings along the way! I Didn’t mean that literally, hahaha! The day the Vikings get on a plane and fly to LA or any other place to continue the franchise else where, I am 100% done with football and from that moment it’s just history. I couldn’t even move back to SoCal and be a fan of that team, when you spent 45 years always thinking and believeing the other teams suck regardless if they did or didn’t, how can you just suddenly say, ” OK! this is my new team ” I can’t do it…. oohh sorry! what was the topic again?

    @Vikes Fan Forever,

    I just watched the sports channels again for the 1st time in almost a month.

    DO NOT BELIEVE THE HYPE !

    They want you to watch the show. They are not going to talk about Offensivel Linemen or even Defensive Linemen.

    Why??? Because we enjoy watching the wide receivers, quarterbacks, and running backs.

    We enjoy hearing about the ALL POWERFUL COACHES.

    Brett Favre said it well in 2009-2010 when he said, “I usually have
    a great statistical day when my team wins.”

    That is why FOOTBALL is one of the greatest team sports of all time.
    IT TAKES A TEAM ! ! ! :) :) :) lol forever.

    Offensivel should be Offensive. ***

    McNabb is not the greatest QB in the NFL.

    We hope him to be in the top 15. Seriously.

    The receivers are not getting open.
    The offensive line is not blocking well consistently.
    McNabb is not making the good throws when he does have time.

    The defensive backs are not covering people consistently
    which causes the defensive line to look bad at times.
    :) :) :)
