I am so tired of souhan and his negative stories. harvin is Harvin and we should be very happy that yelling at an inept Frazier is his only bad transgression, and what is so bad about smoking pot? Don't give me any b s answers either.

Harvin has to do all this stuff because the guy who's supposed to be the leader of our offense won't!

If I was Harvin and had to do everyones job I would be a little pissy to. Plus play with a QB who looks like he's a High School Quarter Back.

This has to be the most meaningless editorial I have ever read.

Wow the Minnesota writers are as weak as the team right now . PH was totally justified and he knows Frasier is complete and utter fool and no way deserves to be a head coach at any lever , oh yea hes a Dungy clone , desciple yea whatever . I see nothing from Frasier just a dumb blank stare and his willingness to lose a game and throw the playoffs away to see if Ponder can snap out of it should get his backside fired !

One of Souhan's worst. Harvin needs to do some screaming to Frasier (and Musgrave) and spell it out to them - run some good plays and use our talent (that's Harvin and AD and maybe Rudolf). If Frasier and Musgrave won't do their job, I want players to get on them (instead of quitting). I'd scream too at my team mates that fail to do their jobs (that's Frasier and Musgrave, if you're still wondering).

The reason PH gets away with his moments is that he is totally committed to winning football games and gives his all on every play. He is the best offensive football player pound for pound in the league and holds himself accountable like few athletes I have ever seen. He is one of the toughest nuts on the field of play every week despite his size. I would say he is the toughest and best football player pound for pound in the league but he has competition on the defensive side of the ball from his own team mate in Winfield. Percy needs to have the rest of the team follow his lead. By the way, the reason that Percy was so upset is that he fumbled the ball earlier in the game and wanted to get that one back for his team mates. He had a chance to get that done and Ponder can't get him the ball. Percy was justifiably upset with himself for fumbling, with his team mate for bumbling and with his coach for staying with the bumbler ! Percy plays to win !! Give me 45 more guys with his desire and the Vikes can win about 5 Super Bowls in a row to even out their record !!!

Let's see. Black player "speaks out". Therefore black player must be labelled as a diva. Jim, do you just have these stories pre-written and then you just add the name?
