Seattle Seahawks: What Can Be Expected of Percy Harvin?

The expectations may already be sky-high for Percy Harvin of the Seattle Seahawks, but he’s more than capable of living up to them.  Will he though?  That’s a completely different story.

Harvin had a tough time staying healthy during his time with the Minnesota Vikings, but when he was on the field, he was one of the most dynamic players in the NFL.  Harvin even managed to garner some MVP hype last season before he suffered a sprained ankle in week nine against Seattle, his new team.  Despite missing seven games, he was still able to amass impressive totals of 1,347 yards and five touchdowns.

Personally, I expect Harvin to play in about 13 or 14 games this season.  He will be used differently with the Seahawks, as there are more playmakers around him, which will allow him to thrive.  In Minnesota, the offense ostensibly consisted of either pounding the ball with Adrian Peterson or getting the ball to Harvin through reverses and short passes due to the erratic play of quarterback Christian Ponder.  In Seattle, there will be more weapons surrounding Harvin and he won’t have so much defensive focus on him.  Not only that, but Russell Wilson having great mobility in running the read option makes Harvin even more dangerous.

I decided to take to Twitter to ask some Seahawks fans what they expect out of Percy Harvin this year.  Here’s what they said:
