Are we still talking about the Percy Harvin trade? No? Yes? It seems like we should be. It literally only happened, what, two weeks ago? That's not that long, but kind of seems like forever in 2013. I mean, I can't remember what Shirtless Viking I last gaped at, let alone what happened two weeks ago (just kidding, it was Shirtless Adrian Peterson). So I feel like we shouldn't cast aside our Harvin reactions just yet, especially since time and distance will always allow cooler heads to prevail. Right? Which is also why I find it odd that a Seahawks fan, at any point in the process of the Harvin trade, would be skeptical. But maybe I shouldn't, because a Seahawks fan made a cartoon video about the whole thing that all of a sudden puts doubts in MY mind about whether or not I would still want him on the Vikings. GET OUT OF MY HEAD! Courtesy of alleged Seahawks fan and YouTube video creator, Podiatry Avengar, comes the following video of an apparent Seahawks fan trying to talk themselves into the Percy Harvin trade. What? You're not convinced? That's crazy talk! ...... Well Christ, when you put it like that, yeah, it does sound kind of bad. And maybe that's the whole point of this Harvin trade. The return on our investment with him just wasn't great enough. Despite being a bona fide star in this league, he never really did the things which would elicit the kind of money Calvin Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald did, even though he was asking for it. So, the Vikings flip him for enough draft picks to fill Moses' ark, Greg Jennings (essentially), and about an extra $2.5 Million in cap space. BUH?! That still doesn't mean I have to like it. I liked cheering for Percy Harvin. A lot of people didn't. A lot of people thought he was an asshole on this team, a cancer, and that he had no respect. Personally, I like assholes on my teams. I love it when other people hate it. It would be a lot cooler if other people just hated us because we won all the time, but in lieu of that, I'll take people hating us because we have really talented players that they covet. But whatever. We have Greg Jennings and his broken leg, doe. And Jerome Simpson who still loves his weed, obviously, so expect plenty of John David Booty to be around. Really, it's like nothing has changed. [follow]

Harnessing New Seattle Seahawk Percy Harvin

Well that was an exciting period of free agency.  I finally was able to come out of hibernation after being a free agency glutton for the past two weeks.  My diet consisted of a strict regimen of Adam Schefter, Chris Mortenson and Ben Volin tweets.  And sparingly, Jeff Darlington, but only on my cheat days. One thing I wanted to add before we jump into the acquisition of Percy...

Pete Carroll thinks Percy Harvin’s attitude could work for him: ‘I think that’s classic of a competitor that sometimes they push the limits’

Coach Pete Carroll always walks on the bright side of the street, and the Seattle Seahawks see things other NFL miss, but the verdict is still out on receiver Percy Harvin. Carroll knows the team took a big gamble trading and giving Harvin a top level contract. It’s a high risk move from a team that tends to make them very often with good results. Carroll feels he has a good...

Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Not Make the Playoffs in 2013

Before I begin this article, let me make a few points clear:1) I am a huge fan of Russell Wilson. What he did in the regular season AND the postseason are feats that can not be ignored.  He is a rare talent and I believe he will have long-term success in the NFL.2) I love the environment that CenturyLink Field brings to the NFL. It is a stadium you must visit if you are a die...

The "E" Word

Louis Bacigalupi posts comments on the site as LouieLouie.  He’s an accountant by trade and worked in a USFL front office.  He can be reached by email at Louie@fiercelyI.com. The addition of Percy Harvin makes the Seahawks’ receiving corps one of the best in pro football.  Combine that with one of the top ground-and-pound running games in the league and it won’t be long...

Russell Wilson: A Top Five Fantasy Quarterback In 2013

Recently I was part of what I considered to be a futile discussion with another passionate fan about the value of a second-year quarterback.That QB was instrumental in his team’s success and even got into the Rookie of the Year discussions by the end of the season.In the second half of the season after he had taken full control of his team, he scored 20 TDs, had 1,650 passing yards...

Yesterday, Jason La Canfora targeted the Jacksonville Jaguars as a likely landing place for Seahawks quarterback Matt Flynn, citing multiple NFL sources.
