The Seattle Seahawks managed to push their way through nearly the entire 2013 regular season without their prized offseason acquisition, WR Percy Harvin. Then they got by two playoff games and made it to the Super Bowl almost entirely without Harvin’s services.
However, now it appears that they are getting him back, as he missed Sunday’s game with a concussion, on the field for their tilt with the Denver Broncos in two weeks.
“They expect him to play in the Super Bowl, sources have told FOX Sports,” wrote Mike Garafolo.
For the season, including the playoffs, Harvin has taken part in just two games and mustered four catches for 38 yards. Still, we know his incredible athleticism should make him an impact addition in the Seahawks’ pinnacle game of the season — if he can stay on the field.
This only unfortunate thing about this whole Sherman thing is that it detracts from the real story of the Hawks wiinning the NFC championship in one of the great games of our time against one of the best teams in the NFL, with contributions from nearly every starter on the roster (and some from the backups, too).
Let’s talk about Balwin’s game, or Kearse’s catch (2 undrafted guys), Chancellor’s shutting down the entire middle of the field with his presence, Lynch breaking open one of the best defenses in the league, or Wilson proving to all the doubters that when the moment is right, he can throw with the best of them.
