Harvin will be a sometimes spectacular but likely inconsistent player with the Vikings. Agree

Freeman has the skill set to be a legitimate Franchise QB  So did Ryan Leaf for a team that hasn't had one of those since, well, you know the sad tale.

If you a potential Franchise QB, you always take him over a good WR.  Depends on the players

Why do you necessarily have to be wrong just because a few million people think you are?

We will curse the day that we didn't take Harvin and drafted a carreer backup.

Percy Harvin - WR, Minnesota Vikings   Thursday, August 06, 7:51 PM EST

News Story: Rookie Percy Harvin stood out today with two long catches, one from Tarvaris Jackson and one from Sage Rosenfels. Harvin also took direct snaps in the Wildcat formation and showed off his speed. Afterward, safety Tyrell Johnson talked about Harvin’s speed and how much pressure it puts on the defense. “He’s stretching our defense so I know he’s going to stretch everybody else’s defense when game time comes,” Johnson said. “He’s a blazer. He’s the fastest guy I’ve seen on the field yet.”

Fantasy Analysis: Harvin continues to impress and if he continues, he will be a starter opening day.

Personally, I think it's rather too soon to write off Freeman.

Unless Harvin breaks his leg or doesn't get the job done. Either way, it is far too early to compare careers. Give it til October at least. ;)

Quit beefing about the past and start hoping for the future

 ::) to the original post.  An ultra fast UF WR...we've been there, done that, twice in consecutive years, I'll reserve praise for Harvin at this time.

As well as too early to put Harvin in the HOF.  Just as it's way to quick to call Harvin some kind of star WR, it's too early to make any judgement on Freeman when many haven't seen enough college games of his to form an opinion and none of us have seen him on an NFL field.

Oh yes.  A week into training camp and all has been told.  Why even play the season?  Lets just wrap it up now and call the Vikings the champions and relegate the Bucs to the UFL.  Based on this post right here I am actually not even going to watch the Bucs this season.  I am so glad you made this post because with this post I am able to really relax this fall and concentrate on more important things in my life.  This post right here has changed my life with its insight on America's great sport.  You have awakened many my friend.  Thanks and gratitude go out to you.  You are amazing.

I've heard this hype before. Reggie Bush anyone?

I get that the player has had some moments, just as I am sure Harvin will, but how is Reggie doing in the HOF balloting right now? After 3 years in the league he has a body of work that isn't exactly earth shattering.

Good. Just not great.

Harvin doesn't even have that. He has a good practice or two.

All I will say is Harvin is going to help the Vikings more than Freeman will the Bucs this year

If you watch the film on Harvin and compare them the Bush you will see


Harvin is a much better reciever than Bush because reciever was his natural position.

Bush was a natural runningback who spilt out wide

Harvin was a wide reciever who occasionally came in to take a hand off


You say whats the difference? Its clear as day Bush wasnt a guy you could depend on to be a WR Harvin made a lot of catches playing a pure WR position. Bush made his on swing passes and bubble screens

The debate of Harvin=Bush is and always has been apples to oranges

Unfortunatly we will see that we missed out on probably the best pure talent in this years draft....for the second time to the same team

Let's see:

Franchise QB vs WR

Yeah, we'll see which one translates into wins and losses in the long-term.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

I don't recall Bush being drafted as a WR. I am referring to the undeserved hype slathered all over these guys before they ever take a meaningful snap in the league.

Bush is an NFL player with a body of work. Harvin? Not yet.

Even money if the Bucs drafted Harvin you'd be the first one on here complaining every time he went home from the rookie symposium or had any other off the field issues.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.
