The Minnesota Vikings don’t want to pay Percy Harvin Megatron money, and they don’t intend to trade him, so we have a stalemate.
The one thing that is for certain judging from some of Harvin’s teammates, is that he’s wanted. Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder was on KFAN recently, and made it clear that his teammates want Harvin back.
“Obviously we want Percy back. He’s a tremendous player and he’s a Viking. And those are tough shoes to fill and we don’t want to fill them. He’s a heck of a player and a heck of a part of this offense and this team in general. Of course we want him back.
Ponder was then asked about his relationship with Harvin.
“Yeah … during the offseason last year [we] spent some extra time together and we had conversations, and he was great for me. He was like, ‘If you’re ever watching film, shoot me a text or call me and tell me I need to be watching this.’ Yeah, we had a good relationship.”
Obviously, it’s essential for Ponder who is entering an important year in his development and future contract status, to have Harvin in the fold.
Most of Ponder’s early season success was due to having Harvin in the lineup. Ponder is not the same quarterback when Harvin is on the bench.

For years now, I've known Vikings right tackle Phil Loadholt in two ways ... First, I'm pretty sure he eats people, and two, he's always getting flags pulled on him for false starts and holdings. This is why they probably don't let fans make personnel decisions, though.
Aside from being large enough to hide children in his sweatshirt pockets, Phil Loadholt has...

Percy Harvin had “nothing to say” about rumors he is unhappy with the Vikings again and that the team may be looking to trade him.
Last Thursday, the Minnesota Vikings finally revealed their long rumored new Norseman logo. The changes were ... subtle. But that doesn't exactly mean they were bad. Let's keep in mind that the other, most recent changes the team have made have sucked, including the updated uniforms. The stylized helmet sperm? Not awful, but also unnecessary. Regardless, the final product...

It may be hard for you to remember, but Percy Harvin once played for the Minnesota Vikings in 2012. It's true. He actually was doing pretty super, as well. He was being talked about heavily as an early MVP candidate in the NFL (sorry dude, it ended up going to Adrian Peterson instead!), and he was key in helping a young team jump out to an early, and surprising, 5-4 record. It...

Donovan McNabb clearly is not a big NASCAR enthusiast. Much like football, auto racing is not for everyone. On Sunday, Danica Patrick became the first female driver to ever win the pole in a Sprint Cup Series race. The fact that she accomplished the feat at the Daytona 500 makes it even more noteworthy.
By topping 196 mph in one of her qualifying laps, Patrick earned the right to...
Donovan McNabb was a very good quarterback, media savvy and an astute businessman from what I hear. With that being said he has been known to make a curious comment or two.
He didn’t know NFL games could end in a tie and then there was this.
Congrats to the Illinois native Danica Patrick on her win today. The first female to win in a big race with this magnitude. Big win
Danica Patrick became the first woman in history to win the pole position of a NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday when she won the pole of next Sunday’s Daytona 500 with a qualifying speed of 196.434. She’ll be on the pole next to Jeff Gordon, who finished second, next Sunday. The race, again, will be next Sunday.
Former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb is a little unclear...
