Harvin: “See U At Mankato”

Posted by Mike Wobschall on June 21, 2012 – 7:20 pm

Thursday was a good day at Winter Park, for many reasons.

The Vikings wrapped up their mandatory minicamp and their successful nine-week offseason program with a late-morning practice under nearly ideal weather conditions. Voice of the Vikings Radio Network Paul Allen hosted his weekday 9-noon radio show from a deck outside of the Wilf office. Zygi and Mark Wilf were in the house to take in the action and visit with some VIPs.

Oh, and Percy Harvin was on the field and in good spirits after practice.

Harvin had voiced some displeasure earlier in the week and did not practice with the team on Wednesday. Vikings GM Rick Spielman met with reporters on Wednesday to address the situation, and Head Coach Leslie Frazier spoke with Harvin to work through the issues.

Harvin, one of the Vikings best players, returned to the field on Thursday and worked sharply with QB Christian Ponder and the offense. Following practice, Harvin (@Percy_Harvin) took to Twitter with a message that settled down much of the buzz.

Here is Harvin’s tweet: “I’m really clueless on the crazy reports…had great prac today ….to all my real fans and real vikes fans see u at Mankato..salute”

Harvin and several of his teammates are featured in this cool highlight video we posted after Thursday’s practice. Check it out.

    Alright, back to my Viking comment! Lets give them a awesome nickname, purple people eaters is for the team from the 60′s-70′s, and sometimes the announcer’s call them the purple eaters, why not think up a new name, Purple Punch, Dragon Heads, something knew that can add to the outstanding year they will have? Oscar award winning Harvin, I thought he was gone, some kind of dis information? and (my off season rant) Solomon Elimimien, if he can make it through the text book, just going thru the motions part of training, and make it to where they are using pads, and shows how good of a hitter he is, he is going to clean up on the offenses! seasons comming, closer and closer. Bring on the competition!!!

    Hmmm with Percy’s tweet, that almost but confirms my original thought that once again that so-called “source” was full of BS! Probably a Cheesebilly lover in Purple clothing (aka Mark Craig) stirring the pot and fabricating to write a propaganda story! If you are a “source” then MAN UP and say who you are. If you don’t or can’t, then you are either fabricating, or are supposed to be quite on the subject and not to be saying anything on the situation yet! The FCC should implement a regulation that states if you report a story and cite sources, those sources must be named, otherwise, don’t report the story or be fined heavily!

    Spencer, get a grip. Stop looking backward. Success always has a future orientation. Do not look at your past to predict your future. The past is only worthwhile for evaluation and learning.

  34. By Vikingsfool on Jun 22, 2012 | Reply

    I’m of the other school of thought Titus. The past is the only thing that is real. The future can be full of hope and good intentions, but the past is the only thing that is set in stone. Like I said, the past is the only thing that is real, the rest is just speculation.

    No fool- the past is gone. It is not real. It is over. Future orientation is the mindset of all champions in any field throughout history– study it out and then get back to me.

  37. By Vikingsfool on Jun 22, 2012 | Reply

    What insight into our psyche. I understand what you’re saying, but as a history guy, I see the past as the only thing that has happened. The future is only in our minds, it has’nt happened yet. That is why the past is the only thing that is real, so it is the only thing we can go by. ON THE OTHER HAND, as bad as 3-13 was, there were and have been signs (in the past) that things are going to get better. So, one can still have hope for the future.

    for the vikings this opening game against the jags is past, present and future. Frazier mentioned it several times like a super bowl coming up. I get the feeling those first few games will set the tone for the whole season

  39. By Vikingsfool on Jun 22, 2012 | Reply

    Take Ponder for example. Many are thinking that he is a bust, while some are thinking he’ll be fine. Here is why, all his bloopers, are in the past. We cannot make a prediction on him untill we see him do something to change our minds. In order for that to happen, he has to prove it. Those actions have to happen, and once they do, they are in the past. Are you understanding what I’m getting at. What has already happened is the only thing we can truly go by when predicting a new outcome.

    Absolutely Sandiamond! I couldn’t agree more. I have to wonder how different things would have been last year, had the vikings won those first three games.

    I had a so-so day yesterday. Do I look at it and predict today will be the same? Or do I look at my goals and craft today’s schedule accordingly? Fool, I am very well-versed in history– I am talking about the principles and pathways to better outcomes. The only reality is that which you draw upon as you navigate the present time period– always revolving, always disappearing… Are you being pulled toward the future or held back by the past? Vikings will do well this year– I predict at least 9 wins.

    @Vikingsfool – I have to agree. Mistakes are going to happen and are the greatest learning tool. I am glad they happened during a season that was pretty much in the books before he took a snap. Now he has to show us something, and judgement can be made from there. More mistakes are inevitable, but he will be judged on how he handles them and how he prevents them from re-occuring. I believe he has some game in him. I dont think he will ever be a top 3 qb in the league, but if he is a perrenial top 10 qb i believe the Vikes will go places, and after a very solid draft, it could be sooner rather than later.

    @ Titus, I don’t completely disagree with what your saying. From my p.o.v, the past happens, but still leaves promise for the future. As for the queenies, the past was so bad, that there is hope for tomorrow. Basically, it can’t get much worse, so will likely get better. As far as what is more real, past or future, analysts predict a poor 2012 vikings because they played poorly in 2011. They also predict great things for G.B, NY etc, because they did great things in recent past. In other words, I think we are both right.

    For the same reason, I don’t think it is wise to say that the Vikings will win ten games or the like.

    I would be very surprised if we lose more than two at home, and with the weaker schedule, I would like to hope we could win three or four on the road– so, Fred, yes, I have every reason to believe we will have 10 wins.

    Fool, I hear you– but last year’s record was by a different team with a different schedule– This year– no McNabb, who one could argue help us lose those first 4 or 5 games which we should have won. Plenty of OTAs. Full minicamp. Good draft. A full year for Frazier under his belt. This really is the first genuine test of Frazier– we should see signs by the halfway mark if he will be who we need long term. I am CONFIDENT for this new season. Caaahn fah dente!

    Deertracks– I say we win 6 at home, thinking like you– the 49ers are most likely one of our two home losses– but you never know. Works both ways– if AP is playing and everyone has their game on, inc Allen and our revamped secondary– we may beat them– don’t think the Vikes won’t be amped up for that game.
    I strongly believe our team is decent enough, that with the crowd noise, we will be dominant at home again— but not perfect.

    @Titus,

    Wins are achieved by players. Currently we have very few proven players.

    Lower your expectations because 8-8 would be an increase in wins by 5 games, and yet the fans would want to fire the coaching staff!

    I took my family from Vegas to Mankato in (what I think was Culpeppers rookie year, 1999?) I remember Cunningham was there too so that must be about right. I remember Culpepper was huge compared to most players and we went on an offense vs defense scrimmage. It seems to me the charge was minimal if not free, I remember after the scrimmage all the fans lined up along a 4 foot high chain link fence and got autographs from the players. Randy Moss took a child out of the crowd and put him on his shoulders while he signed autographs. Everybody was quiet and polite like minnesotans are, so what ever the price, it was well worth it.

    It’s tough to say though, no one knows where we will be drafting or when he will be avaliable, so even if both Ponder and Webb fail (which I doubt will happen; I’m expecting Ponder to go above and beyond expectations this year) we don’t even know if it will be possible to get him.

    I’d rather have Sage. The #3 QB is mostly there as insurance on your insurance. I’ll take the guy that can, even if it is just a little bit, help our other QBs get better. Besides, if you get to the point where your #3 QB is starting, it is better to have a guy with NFL experience than a guy with raw talent.

    I don’t know that any team looks at their #3 as a future starter except maybe the Texans, the Seahawks (if Wilson is the #3), and the Dolphins (if Tannehill is their #3). However, on a team like the Vikes where the #1 and #2 QBs are both young, you can be almost sure that the #3 will never develop into a starter.

    I don’t understand? J.Allen is in there every play almost sacking the QB, how come the rest of the D line is not getting any better? has anybody played on a team, they are keying on J. Allen, that leaves a lot of opportunity for the other players to make more or stand out plays. I think they are leaning on J. Allen or taking advantage of there situation and taking it easy. That is to bad, they could really excel if they did things right.

    Hurricane Debby is heading for Louisiana, am hoping it will flatten the Dome, Then play the SuperBowl someplace else..

    None of the Saints fans I read on their blogs are even sorry about the injuries caused by the Dirtbag New Orleans Team! Let them go swimming in the surf, when Debby hits!. If not Debby, how about the next one…..

    Fred – I must disagree with you on “holes” around the team. We have one at LB, and a weak joint next to it. The OL has maybe 1 hole and another weak joint, but that has yet to be determined.

    The biggest hole right now is at the second safety spot. We have high hopes for a rookie on one side, but we have no clue if there’s a capable player to stand along side him. His college teammate is expected to earn the spot, but will likely need a year or two to learn the new position.

    DeerTracks – What’s the likelihood that it actually gets to Louisiana? That would really suck for the country to go through another big relief fund for a city that’s udner water more often than not.

    Everybody was certain that LA was going to be the next Atlantis, but it looks like the Big Easy is on the fast track to make it there first.

    But I agree with your sentiment though DeerTracks. If only it could just center all its power on the SuperDome, and leave the rest of the state just a little damp.

    Weather people were not sure if Debby will hit full force today, .
    Hope it at least flattens the SuperDome! And maybe the Saints Fans little grass shacks….

    Favre went on NFL Site and said he didn’t care about the fact that those Saints did try to wipe him out! Said he was more upset that the Vikings lost the Game!

    I don’t think he was thinking straight It was the fact they almost killed him that caused him to lose the Game….I think Favre still has some brain damage to think that way

    Favre is part of that brotherhood– he ain’t gonna say anything against another player, even a Saint.

    Favre was showing sportsmanship, can’t hide the fact the Saints played dirty!

  256. By DeerTracks on Jun 24, 2012 | Reply

    Favre wouldn’t say anything againt those fellow players? Not even if those players were trying to put him down? I liked Favre, but this is pure hog-wash! Favre didn’t care that those Saints almost sent him to the Hospital for an extented stay?

    Did Favre think that way during the game? If so, then Favre was just as much to blame for the lost as anybody else…Including “Just a Field Goal away Childress”..

    Rock, I agree.

    Favre’s always had a tough guy attitude. He’s going to pretend that it doesn’t bother him that players opposite him were intentionally trying to injure him. We all know that it does bother him, but he’s going to maintain the facade because that is just the way he is.

    @Spencer,

    Thank you for those graphics on the Bucs and Dolphins.

    First, I’m just saying that we should not get over-optimistic and then blow a thousand brain cells against the head coach because the Vikings didn’t meet our expectations.

    Second, How are those teams doing now? It’s better to build slowly!!!

    We should not have to worry about being let down, I’m counting on Kinetic energy, as in once the season starts the momentum forward will carry us forward, as in I will be rooting to keep them pumped up, that’s why a new nick name would be aspiring, motivating.

    New Defense Nick-Name: The Berzerkers

    Berserkers (or berserks) were Norse warriors who are reported in the Old Norse literature to have fought in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury, a characteristic which later gave rise to the English word berserk
