Eating Crow

Everybody by now has heard that Percy Harvin has decided to have hip surgery and will miss a significant portion (if not all) of the season. While we here at Daily Norseman wish him the absolute best and a speedy recovery, we cannot help but feel a little more satisfied with the trade that happened this off-season. You see, when the trade actually happened there were some people who thought that the Vikings made a fantastic decision to let go of the mercurial, oft-injured, but other-worldly talented receiver/returner. You can read those articles right here:

Articles praising the Vikings for the trade:

1)R.C. Fisher - Fantasy Football Metrics...that's right...just one...and it's a fantasy football site's article.

On the flip side of the coin, here are the articles bowing to the gloriousness of the Seahawks for their side of the trade (some also point out how stupid the Vikes were for trading him):

1)Don Banks - Sports Illustrated

2)Gregg Rosenthal - NFL.com

3)Chris Burke - Sports Illustrated

4)Will Brinson - CBS Sports

5)Clifton Brown - Sporting News

Those are just a few articles that Google so generously pulled from its archived files of a few months ago. I write this post only as a small attempt to do for the writers of these articles what they will never do themselves...admit that they were wrong in their analysis of the trade. They mostly glossed over his injury history and his insubordination history paiting Percy as a player every franchise would salivate over. In the end though, the good guys won and that's all that really matters...I just wish some people would own up to their very public mis-read on the entire situation.
