Oh Mercy, Where's Percy?!
I've got news for Seahawks fans who are breathlessly awaiting word on whether or not Percy Harvin will play in the Super Bowl. It won't mean a thing one way or the other. Yeah, I said it and dammit I ain't backin' down. Harvin has caught exactly two passes this season and as good as he is when healthy I don't expect him to be a game changer after a season's worth of inactivity.
Harvin is a good receiver, don't get me wrong, but this is the Super Bowl we're talking about. I think it's safe to say the Broncos D will be coming a lot harder than the Saints were two weeks ago. Like I stated earlier, he only has a pair passes under his belt this season, he just hasn't caught the ball enough to raise any questions.
However, for those of you who disagree with me (and I've got all five names written down in my black book), I direct you to a recent comment made by head coach Pete Carroll, "I think he has a very good chance to practice based on how he was on the weekend. He was in pretty good shape on the weekend. He still has to go through a couple of clearances and all that, but we're kind of counting him to be ready, I think he should be."
So there you have it. If you think Harvin will be in peak form and available to give quarterback Russell Wilson that prime target he's been missing then you may want to surf on over to Bet365.com or WilliamHill.com to get down on Seattle in your NFL picks. Personally, I think Harvin will play but am not convinced he will make a difference in this one.
