Harvin Adds To Impressive Season With Dynamic Performance In Atlanta

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 28, 2011 – 8:10 am

This just in: Percy Harvin is really good at football. There’s no question this offense begins and ends with Adrian Peterson, who is the best RB in the NFL. And it looks as if the Vikings have the answer at QB with Christian Ponder. But there’s also no disputing that Harvin is the Vikings most dynamic weapon, and he proved that again on Sunday against the Falcons.

It’s important for the Vikings to get Harvin involved in the offense every week, but his inclusion in the game plan this week became even more important when Peterson was ruled out because of an ankle injury. Atlanta knew Harvin would be a focal point in the offensive game plan, yet Harvin was still able to produce.

Harvin had 8 receptions for 95 yards, including a 4th-quarter highlight-caliber 39-yard grab in the back of the end zone that pulled the Vikings to within 3 points of the Falcons and made the game interesting. He also had 5 rushes for 11 yards to help Toby Gerhart shoulder the load with Peterson on the mend. Later in the 4th quarter after the Falcons had seemingly sealed their victory with a TD, Harvin took the ensuing kickoff from 7 yards deep in his own end zone and dashed 104 yards to the Atlanta 3. The return is the longest non-scoring play in NFL history. Unfortunately the Vikings were unable to punch the ball in, and ultimately the Falcons prevailed with a 24-14 win.

Add it all up, and Harvin had 210 total yards on 14 touches against the Falcons, which adds up to 15.0 yards per touch. For the season, Harvin has 1,187 combined yards this season on 95 touches, which averages out to 12.5 yards per touch. Here are a few more notes on Harvin’s performance against Atlanta…

– Harvin is the Vikings record-holder for career games of 200+ net yards, and he added to his total on Sunday. Harvin now has 6 such games, which is two more than Chuck Foreman, Tommy Mason and Adrian Peterson.

– With his 8 receptions, Harvin moved into 4th place all-time in Vikings history for most catches in a player’s first 3 seasons (182). Harvin is now 4 receptions behind Jermaine Wiggins for 3rd place on the list. Ricky Young (224) is in 2nd place, and Randy Moss (226) is in 1st place.

– With 5 rushes for 11 yards on Sunday, Harvin added to his career record and single-season record for rushing yards and attempts by a WR. Harvin has 477 career rushing yards on 66 career attempts, and 235 rushing yards on 33 attempts for the season.

    Like Michael Irvin has said on NFL Network, we often put too much emphasis on a players’ measurable attributes and not too much thought on something that is much more difficult to account for, a players’ heart and will. Tim Tebow has both of those intangibles and that’s what’s inspiring his team to win games, because he doesn’t give up.

    The Falcon’s #21 had that heart and will to keep running and tackle Harvin before he got into the endzone on that kickoff return.

    When I look at this team, on both sides of the ball, I see some guys that have outstanding physical attributes and (mostly) some that don’t. But rarely do any of them have heart and effort when it matters the most (exceptions being Peterson and Jared Allen). I see lazy coverage by both DB’s and LB’s, for some reason they like to stay in front of the receiver and rarely try to make a play on the ball, and after they allow the catch I see lazy pursuit by teammates, and even worse, horrible tackling when it matters most.

    Frazier, look at your squad both coaches and players alike. Changes need to be made. I saw Reymond in the game last night, but only because of injury do to Johnson, but unlike Johnson I saw Reymond consistently flying to the ball and showing just pure effort. How about putting in Brandon Burton? Everyone knows that Asher and Sapp get burnt on every route possible on almost every single play. I know Burton as a Utah fan I saw him play with ball hawking ability and most importantly of all he had effort. You waived Berrian for having no effort, dedication, and being just flat out lazy. Same thing went for Bryant Mckinnie. Do something Frazier, please! For the love of everything that is holy show some emotion on the sideline! Make the changes that need to be made, you made drastic changes in the preseason, why stop there?

    I agree with some of these comments, I think the whole team with the exception of a few stand outs need to adopt AP mindset and believe and fight for victories, aside from bad coaching I don’t see the element needed to be a winning team. It’s easy to sit back and critique, but like coach Frazier says we are a 2 and 9 team period. I think it’ll be years before this team gets back a super bowl contending ability.

    Keep playing them rookie DB’s and there could be hope of a decent season next yea. Young players need playing time to get better, And our O line is absolute garbage. Even Hutch is joining in the suck match. He blew a block on that fourth and goal which caused Toby’s negative run.

    Well stated DesertViking!
    Heart and soul are attributes that the Vikings rarely show and it goes back over the entire franchise history. It’s very disappointing seeing the lack of effort, no killer instinct, and choking. Yes, it’s true and we all know it. Still, I remain a loyal fan and I just keep hoping to see consistent heart and intensity for the entire game and to see players go all out till the whistle blows. If you want to see a good example of a game played with intensity and heart, tune in to the upcoming Army-Navy game! Learn from these kids. If the Viking played intense like that, I wouldn’t care if they lost every game because we will know they went all out and gave their best and there is no shame losing to a better team. That play that #21 of the Falcons did is a classic example of not giving up. Imagine the difference of this team if everybody played all out for the entire game. It continues to be wishful thinking for me. The team needs a cultural shakeup!

    What is the status of AP? Are the Vikes going to play him again this year or let him rest/ I agree with those that the teams doesn’t show the ehart and soul of a professinal team. Someone has to loose every weekend but you don’t have look lazy. With the exception of a few guys on both sides of the ball the Vikes have lost their heart. Alen, HArvin, Ap all give i their all where is the rest of the team. Are we just getting old?

    Harvin’s performance shows yet again why Frazier’s decision to not let him run back kicks mor eoften is idiotic. I think Frazier’s quote was “they didn’t want to wear him down” but Harvin is in great shape and could easily not be on the field for the first play or 2 after a long return. Don’t see the Bears babying Devin Hester like this.

    I say let Harvin run back kicks and get us great field position.

    Allen, Peterson, and Harvin are not the only ones with heart and effort, they’re just the ones that showcase it the most with their talent and position. Hutchinson gives effort every play if you watch him, as well as Greenway, Loadholt, and Ponder, even if they’re not that great (Phil’s case).

    After getting rid of McJoke, “stonehands” Berrian, McFatty, and Shiancoe we are going to have a lot of cap space to be aggressive in FA. Which one of these draft/FA combinations would you most like to see from the Vikes assuming feasibility? (Also based on the assumption of the 2nd or third pick and a compensatory 4th round for Edwards and Rice)

    Option 1:
    First Round Matt Kalil OT

    Fourth Round Donnie Fletcher SS
    Fourth Round Josh Robinson CB

    Free Agent Cortland Finnegan CB

    Option 2:

    First Round Michael Flloyd WR Trade down for extra second round
    Second Round Xavier Rhodes CB trade down for extra 3rd round
    Second Round Markelle Martin FS
    Third Round Lucas Nix OG
    Third Round Coby Fleener TE
    Fourth Round Antonio Allen SS
    Fourth Round Ryan Broyles WR Compensatory

    Second Round Markelle Martin FS
    Third Round Nate Potter OT Trade down for extra fourth round
    Fourth Round Antonio Allen SS
    Fourth Round Donnie Fletcher CB
    Fourth Round Ryan Broyles WR Compensatory

    Second Round Xavier Rhodes CB
    Second Round Mark Barron SS
    Third Round Coby Fleener TE
    Fourth Round Devier Posey WR
    Fourth Round Jeff Fuller WR Compensatory
    Free Agent Tracy Porter CB
    Free Agent Kareem McKenzie OT

    this team would be great if they use their top three picks to get and/or O linemen and secondary (safety and corner) its almost like we get great players were it matters and throw in high school kids every place eles..
    o and trade Toby Gerhart his start is two slow to ever make a play

    @Twoodsnvikes When you say “trade down for extra picks,” does the pick that you have placed this by get factored in, or are they who we are passing on for more picks? Example: Nate Potter OT Trade down for extra fourth round—is Nate Potter who we have already traded down to…or is he who we would give up for more picks?

  18. By Twoodsnvikes on Nov 28, 2011 | Reply

    Potter is who we traded down for, he is projected as a late third round, so we would have the 2nd or third pick in the third round and we would trade down to get potter and pick up an extra pick

    To Twoodsnvikes.
    Wow .. a lot of thought put into this. Don’t know what free agents are out there, or what the Vikes are prepared to do tradewise to start filling holes, but your Option 1 appeals to me. Really like Kalil and Osemele to shore up the o-line and that’s huge. The Eagles and a few other teams lack a pass rush so Allen as good as he is, would certainly be shopped around in the next couple of weeks to find out what his market value is. Ballard and Griffen look very promising. The entire secondary is completely inadequate and needs a complete rebuild, so the more draft picks we can procure the better this team will be quicker.

    Yeah Jackson will be a FA he only signed a one year deal after his little dispute with SD, so he might be even more likely to go into FA after all of that, and I like option one too if we can get those FAs because our secondary is even worse than our O line

  35. By Mike B. on Nov 28, 2011 | Reply

    @Rocksalt The problem is Blue chip WR usually don’t last to the seoond round. I think the Vikings should take the best WR, OL, or DB, which ever is the best when our turn in the draft comes up. The coaches are probably safe this year, but I don’t think we should retain any of them. Mike W didn’t answer my question about do we have the best availible OL on the team. I still suspect that due to the cap the team didn’t want to spend more on OL than they already have. This is not good as our current group is terrible. I don’t agree with McKinney’s release, when you don’t have a plan to replace him with a player that is close to his caliber. I don’t think the issues with this team ended with Childress and is much deeper than that. I thing all that I said is obvious and correctable. Take care

    If I was Harvin, I would feel that the coaches let me down by not challenging the apparent touchdown he scored on third down, after his big return. It is absolutely unacceptable that “communications” between upstairs and downstairs is allowed to let a score not be counted. Pathetic.

    I agree Twood, I think we currently have players that could step up and play better too and with a good draft and free agent acquisitions we can improve immediately. I think most of our current problems lie in soft coaching, that’s the boat that needs to be rocked. Philly has proved big name free agency is not the way to go and the Pack has proved the draft is. There should be a combination of the two that works too.

  46. By allan on Nov 28, 2011 | Reply

    There are so many problems with the vikings that it is hard to start to state them but here is my list:

    1. An indoor stadium that took the cold weather advantage away from us.
    2. Lack of a General Manager/Head of Football Operations
    3. A philosophy of not building through the draft – case in point: the Packers
    4. The coaches scheme of using the cover 2/zone defense that leaves opposing receivers wide open.
    5. Ponder is a smart QB but roles out way too much thus cutting the field in half.
    6. Our LB’s are over rated, can’t cover anyone with the coaches schemes (cover 2), and aren’t blitzing enough.
    7. The Defensive Tackles aren’t getting enough pressure on the opposing QB’s
    8. Our offensive line aren’t getting any pancake blocks on the defensive players.

    We could all say that the Vikes don’t have enough talent but with coaching and the drive to over achieve, we would certainly have at least 5 wins.

    I think our biggest problem on defense is that the play calling is too vanilla.

    That’s why we saw so little change in production when 4 of the top-6 DBs are lost to injury. The vanilla play-calling works well for the lower skill players because it gives them fewer chances to make a mistake. But when we get better players in the backfield, we won’t see a reasonable change in production until the guy calling the plays starts taking more chances.

  48. By Parody on Nov 28, 2011 | Reply

    Throw in some blitz packages, cover recievers one-on-one, and get them reading the QB’s eyes to try to get a jump on the INT throughout the game.

    WR free agents——– Reggie Wayne (IND) Wes Welker (NE) Vincent Jackson (SD) DeSean Jackson (PHI) Dwayne Bowe (KC) Marques Colston (NO) Steve Johnson (BUF) Brandon Lloyd (STL) Robert Meachem (NO) Mario Manningham (NYG) Mike Wallace (PIT) – Restricted

    Therefore we should get a OT or CB!

  50. By Parody on Nov 28, 2011 | Reply

    Stew – A lot of those guys are likely to re-sign with their current teams, and I’m not sure that I want at least two of them on our team. DeShawn Jackson is way too unpredictable about whether he’ll be productive in any given week, and I think he’s been non-productive this year more often than he’s been productive.

    I was also dismayed by Bowe this last week, when I saw him give up on a play late in the game that led to an interception. If he stuck his hand in the air, it would have been enough to knock the ball out of range of the defender, but on replays it looked as if he actually made an effort to keep his arms down with defenders closing in on the ball. That play killed the Chiefs’ chance of coming back in a close game.

    I’d be willing to bet that Wallace, Manningham, Meachum and Lloyd all stay with their respective teams…so that doesn’t leave a whole lot of options to pick from at the end of it all, and I haven’t seen our management staff get competetive at all when it came to picking up quality free agents.

    Twoods – I’m pretty sure that Bowe was the deepest route on that drive. He should have known that. The announcers even said that they thought the reason he didn’t go for the ball was because he was afraid of the impending contact he would have received with all the defenders around him.

    And I also think Jackson is the only other realistic release this offseason, probably one of the Saints receivers too but they aren’t really a number one receiver

  58. By Parody on Nov 28, 2011 | Reply

    Stew – I guarantee that Indy will take Luck with the first pick. He has been advertised as the next Peyton Manning (among other sure thing QBs). Peyton is missing the entire season with an injury, and he’s getting old enough that the Colts should be preparing for his replacement soon anyways. So why not take the next “guaranteed” HOF QB? They’ve been successful in the past with little more than a stellar QB, so they’re probably drooling at the potential to keep the same kind of success going for the next decade or so.

    Yes, he has eventually weeded out a few of the lazy ones. But he and the front office chose to retain subpar players in the 5 weeks prior to the season. Get some hungry guys off of the practice squad and deactivate some of the duds. Oh, and Frazier can show he has an organized team when you have a 104 yard return and have to call a d@m^ timeout.

    I heard Les Steckel speak at a National FCA Conference before he was the Head Coach of the Vikings.

    He said, “I would rather have the opportunity to attend a National FCA Conference than to win a Super Bowl.” (This was in the early 1980s.)

    So he is FAR from new to the FCA.

    It is ironic you chose to play that video tonight, because I was just thinking how much Leslie Frazier is like Tom Landry with his quiet leadership.

    One of Coach Landry’s Hall of Fame players, Mel Renfro, said in a book that he didn’t understand Coach Landry at first. But after 5 years of playing for him he grew to like him a lot.

    Frazier is not the problem with this team. Neither was Childress. We MUST get to the root of the problem. Hire a great football man to be the GENERAL MANAGER OF THE VIKINGS.

    @Nicholas,

    There ain’t no debating, we need OL, DB, and WR.

    Is the order important? It might be!

    But HOW are we gonna git it done?

    Hire a GM. I’m tired of hearing about other teams that have starters that went undrafted where is ours? I know there is talent lurking around that’s better than some of our starters. Especially in the secondary. What do our coaches teach in practice, let them catch it then tackle?

    This past sunday at the game I was sitting close to AP’s auntie. She had on a authentic AP jersey which read “to my beautiful auntie” with his autograph next to it. Man I would love to have her jersey!

    How come Joe Webb is not put in as a WR? I know he is a QB, but he is to much of an athelete to be standing on the sidelines. Havve you seen videos of his college days?
