Poll: Vikings fans on Harvin in Super Bowl
By Ben Goessling
MINNEAPOLIS -- Well, Minnesota Vikings fans, the Seattle Seahawks are the NFC champions, and coach Pete Carroll says Percy Harvin is likely to be back from a concussion in time for the Super Bowl. That means, for the second year in a row, and the third time in the last seven years, you'll be watching one of the Vikings' most talented -- and most polarizing -- former receivers play for another team in the Super Bowl.
This one might be a little different than Randy Moss' trips to the Super Bowl for the 2007 Patriots and the 2012 49ers for a couple reasons; Harvin is just a year removed from Minnesota, and could conceivably still be a focal point in the Vikings' offense. But the Vikings also got a handsome package back when they traded the temperamental receiver last March, using the 25th overall pick in the draft to take Florida State cornerback Xavier Rhodes. They also moved back into the first round to draft Tennessee receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, who looks well on his way to replacing Harvin, and they've still got a third-round pick coming from the Seahawks to complete the Harvin trade this year.
So we'd like to know: How do you feel about Harvin being in the Super Bowl so soon after his exit from Minnesota? Make your voice heard through our SportsNation poll, and we'll come back to examine the results and what they mean later this week.
