He is a good weapon...no way in hell he is the best.


I brought this up in the Vikings forum, the stats really don't look all that impressive. What's impressive is how he got those yards. The kick returns and yards after the catch have been extremely impressive.

Best weapon in the nfl=Cam Newton imo.

The types of plays they can run simply because he's on the field(and he is on the field every snap) are ridiculous.

Then we can talk about guys like Sproles,Harvin, etc.

I'm pretty sure he had the most all-purpose yards of any player last year. That's impressive.

Been saying it for 2 years now. He is probably the best all around football player in the NFL.

Danny Amendola led the league in total yards in 2010..

Without a doubt. Sproles is in the coversation as well. Not many people watch the Vikings so this thread may look homerish.

Not the case. His quickness is unparalleled. I used to think Peterson was a freak. Also, his toughness is no joke. At 5"11, 185 the kid can pop defenders. He runs like he is 225. We all no he is versatile. However what makes him really special is how explosive he is. Harvin had just unded 1000 yards last year, without running the go route. Any Vikings fan will tell you that we dont send Percy deep. Everything is YAC. If you put Harvin an offense with an established #1 WR, he could dominate.

I believe you're thinking of Danny Amendola. Wink

I'm convinced. He quietly blossomed last year into a top 5 playmaker in the league. He's one of the best players in the league right now. Period.

He's been unfairly called "injury-prone" during his entire career, which is not true at all.

Calvin Johnson is the best weapon in the NFL (not counting QBs).

Harvin is insane.
He has amazing acceleration. He will catch a screen standing still and be up to full speed like a step later. He almost always makes the first guy miss. In the rare ocassion where he doesnt, he break the first tackle and gets yards after contact. He just bounces off people. There have been times when the opponent will "hit stick" Harvin and they just bounce off him. He doesnt weigh alot but like Adrian he hits the defenders instead of the defenders hitting him. He has great vision, has good hands. He is durable. Only missed 3 games in his career. He can do it all.

He doesn't have to. I'm not saying he's as versatile as Harvin or Sproles or whoever, but you'd be hard pressed to find a coach or someone in a front office who would take Harvin and his skill set over Calvin as just a WR. I'd certainly take Calvin and only his receiving ability over Harvin and his abilities.

Does a "weapon" have to be versatile? I'd much rather have a player who dominates one facet of the game (Calvin, AP, McCoy, Fitz) than Harvin. I mean I personally consider the above guys "weapons," and I'd say they're all better than Harvin quite easily. If we are strictly talking versatile players like Sproles and Harvin type weapons, then yeah I'd definitely say Harvin is in the conversation and quite possibly the most versatile player in the NFL, or biggest "weapon."
