You can't keep up. Trust me.
Think about it..... your GM and coaches see GT every day and still felt the difference between the two were worth of a 1st rounder and a huge contract. What does that say...cut it out :17:


now that's just not fair, return TDs aren't fair
how can you expect Golden Tate to go and score them when our current return man is one of the greatest of all time (and all-time return TD leader)?

http://www.seahawks.com/videos-photos/v ... f6ee804e3a


When your team doesn't have any other receiving weapons it's not a surprise there's more highlights of Harvin. This was only Tate's first season as a starter, so it's not really a surprise that there's not as many highlights.

And it's called adding extra weapons. Tate will still be a starter next year, no doubt. After all, he had more yards per target than any other player that played the entire season, 2nd only behind Danario Alexander (who played just 10 games, starting 6). Harvin is a utility player - players that can play 2 or 3 positions are what Pete Carroll goes home, locks the door, pulls the curtains closed, puts his headphones on and watches at night for cheap thrills

Also, calling him "Harvin Lite" means nothing, only that Harvin was around first and they're similar players.
They used to call Patrick Willis "mini Ray Lewis".

Seattle fans at flat out delusional.



So just what is going to happen now that you don't have Goldson in the secondary?

Maybe Jimbo should have thought about defense instead of blowing his load on another 1 year contract on an aging vet.

Hopefully this guy becomes the team player once he gets paid.

I just heard in an interview on KJR that this fella has had issues with authority dating back to college. He is a tinderbox. Hopefully Pete can be that guy that can get through to him.

I will be monitoring this situation very closely.

They called him Harvin lite because he did nothing as well as Harvin.
1. Not as fast
2. Not as strong
3. Not as agile.
4. Can't run between the tackles
5. Simply isn't as explosive
on
Also I would like to point out that Harvin isn't a utility player because utility players don't have 60 Recs in 8 games.
As for my team not having any other receiving option... You have our other WR and our TE is better than urs.

Right there with you brother. I've signed in everyday since the Atlanta game and read through numerous "x player released" threads, even some guy dubbed the poop scoop holster or something like that's thread. Mindless drivel for almost two months and the one day I don't sign in i'm almost the last to hear of this. :229031_banghead:

Anyway, I've seen little of Harvin but hear he is no slouch. Can't wait to see him in action. The offseason just got that much longer.

You do realise their combine results were practically identical? In terms of speed, strength and agility there's not much between the two. I can't comment on Tate "not being able to run between the tackles" because he's never tried (and thus never failed). Well, apart from in his Notre Dame days, where he was actually pretty successful.

As for your TE being better. Just like Tate was the leading wide receiver for yards per target, I'll give you 3 guesses who the leading TE was. Hint: he plays in Seattle.

There's a reason Seattle because the first team in 70 years to average 50 points a game over a 3 game spell - and it had nothing to do with lacking offensive weapons.

Really, I don't know why we're having this conversation when we all know Percy Harvin is Darren Sproles LITE anyway

lol, that's HUGGY. If I remember correctly I think I was the first to coin that name for him, and sadly that subsequently earned me my new, incredibly stupid, IKEA inspired monicker.

Haha! They have a damn good TE, but he's no Zack Miller. Let's not even get into a comparison of who's throwing the ball to them :lol:

I've been throwing a lot of picks on Madden. I keep forcing the ball to Harvin.

My thoughts...

1. Price is pretty high. I am more worried now about future Seahawks who will become free agents and our ability to shore up the defense.

2. I wonder what/if San Francisco was offering? If you are also keeping him away from your biggest road block that could also be huge.

3. This proves Pete and John and ready to win now. If this gives us 3 to 7 more points a game, this will be huge. Maybe the best way to improve the defense is to get more explosive on offense.

4. RW is going to be that much more dynamic and dangerous.

1st drive- 8 yard touchdown to Golden on a slant.

2nd drive- 30 yard punt return, 25 yard TD on a screen on third down.

So far Madden says Harvin and Golden will be awesome together.

You're joking right? Combine results don't matter, on field results do. I've yet to see Tate explode past anyone for a long TD like Harvin has many times. Tate still has a place on the team but your comparison is like comparing a mustang to a Ferrari.

I like this as we needed a WR that could take the top off of a defense. Just wish we didn't have to give up our 1st rd pick.

i heard the niners were interested in Harvin. I wonder if we tried to give our 2nd round pick for him but the niners countered with the 2nd round pick they got from alex smith trade (which is an early 2nd rd pick). Then we threw our 1st rounder in there. hmm

That would make sense. There's no doubt that the Niners (or whomever) drove the price up.

BTW, per Pro Football Talk, the contract is essentially set:

"Despite a report that Harvin wants to be paid in the range of Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald and Lions receiver Calvin Johnson, both of those players are in the range of $16 million. Per the source, Harvin’s deal won’t be close.

In reality, Harvin’s deal will be more in line with the current one-up high-jump that began last year with Bucs receiver Vincent Jackson with five years, $55.5 million, and which was extended by Chiefs wideout Dwayne Bowe and his five-year, $56 million deal."

Well what does it say when you are your teams only good WR and team plan for you and you are still nearly unstoppable, imagine when there are other weapons like Rice, Tate, and Miller, mabye even a rookie TE to draw coverage. This is a great situation for Wilson and Harvin to become on of the best QB WR tandems in the league.

Lol.. As a Die Hard 49er fan I can flat out tell you Jim is not worried at all about Seattle or Pete The Cheat Carroll. Love how you guys go out and overspend for overrated talent and we Niners spend far less( 6th round pick) and got a much better player and deal.
Will Harvin even play a full season? Or will be become a diva? Or will his headaches comeback in the loudest stadium in sports? Will his ankle hold up? Way to many questions... Too many question...We both have squads and this is gonna be a bloodbath next season.. I just think SF took all your heat with one move. It went from Seattle made a trade too Percy who? Within 20 mins.

Niners!!! 4 Life! 2014 Division Champions... Already crownd.

There has been a lot of really stupid Crap posted by ninnies fans here but this post has to be the dumbest of them all! Congrats on that! I'd bet dollars to doughnuts you were crowning the ninnies champs on Superbowl Sunday before the game as well! Time to get off of your moms computer Junior and let the adults continue this thread!

I hope it is a 6 year deal, pay along the same 11-12 per but for 6 years

I'm encouraged by PFT's source that says his deal will be in line with that second tier of WRs. Hope they are legit.

This 49ers fans super bowl loss still rips at his heart, that being said lets state the obvious logical thing and we all should agree.

Boldin is a better WR and they got him for less. Oh well.

Percy Harvin is a risk and I thought we were done taking chances on maybe talent (see Irvin... even though he had a good year)

As a Gator Fan all Harvin was about was himself and we already have one of those guys in Sherman. If the team wants to win, someone is going to need to step up and put people in their place when shit hits the fan.

That being said good move but I'm not as ecstatic as I would have been if Boldin "sure hands" had arrived here.

I feel like it should also be stated Harvin has the most pure raw talent maybe in the NFL behind AP so theres that but eh... I feel like this is a 50/50 type of deal.

San Francisco was the ONE place I didn't want Boldin to go to.

Also Harvin had this:

Russell isn't that.

Boldin is repetitive for the niners. Why do you fear him?

In the end I think this is a huge turning point for this franchise, we are now a destination team that players want to be at. 15 years ago NE was just like Seattle nobody wanted to go their unless it was for overmarket. They are now a reimer destination for older vets who are in thier last few years and want a shot at a championship. We are on the cusp and few budget signings on the DL and we are set. I wonder if we can still afford Dez Bryant, if not I'd still be happy with Abraham and Seymore.

Lol.. As a Die Hard 49er fan I can flat out tell you Jim is not worried at all about Seattle or Pete The Cheat Carroll. Love how you guys go out and overspend for overrated talent and we Niners spend far less( 6th round pick) and got a much better player and deal.
Will Harvin even play a full season? Or will be become a diva? Or will his headaches comeback in the loudest stadium in sports? Will his ankle hold up? Way to many questions... Too many question...We both have squads and this is gonna be a bloodbath next season.. I just think SF took all your heat with one move. It went from Seattle made a trade too Percy who? Within 20 mins.

Niners!!! 4 Life! 2014 Division Champions... Already crownd.



42-13


Yes, we all know that was your Super Bowl.


At least our Super Bowl ended in a win, then.

Boldin is repetitive for the niners. Why do you fear him?


I'm not sure what him being repetitive means, but he's an amazing slot receiver and he just won a super bowl, he's less of a headache and is probably more of a guaranteed talent than Harvin and he went to the 49ers, anyone the 49ers get that makes them better concerns me. That being said Harvin's talent level is ridiculously high, so good deal but...

I really feel like WR was a secondary need, we need more dominant pass rushers. Get it done Pete!

Boldin is a better WR and they got him for less. Oh well.

Percy Harvin is a risk and I thought we were done taking chances on maybe talent (see Irvin... even though he had a good year)

As a Gator Fan all Harvin was about was himself and we already have one of those guys in Sherman. If the team wants to win, someone is going to need to step up and put people in their place when shit hits the fan.

That being said good move but I'm not as ecstatic as I would have been if Boldin "sure hands" had arrived here.



Wait, you think Boldin at this stage of his career is better than Percy Harvin? I'd like to hear your reasoning on that.

Besides disagreeing with you that Sherman is only about himself, I think team is in fine position leadership wise with Russell and the rest of the team. There weren't any major issues last year and I highly doubt one player is going to wreck the team in that regard.

He is an older crabtree. Not only that, his strengths as a wide receiver line up perfectly with our cornerbacks strengths.

Yes I think he's better, for reasons stated above, sure hes older but so what. I think Harvin has the ability to be a great player if he wants to, but he's also got the ability to become a headache and a team cancer. I will agree though you're right if anyone is able to handle it, it's definitely Russell. I hope it all works out but I'll wait and see for things to play about before I deem this the best move we could have made.

I'l go ahead and call this the best move we've ever made. The only reason harvin had problems is because he wants to win and he knows the vikings aren't winners, they're about christian ponder, harvin plays at another speed and another intensity both of which I don't think we've seen here, ever.

When I see guys post "cautiously optimistic" I take that as ..... I want to say "I told you so" if it doesn't work....or ride the hype train when it does. Weak sauce.

We still have some work to do in that regard, definitely, but if Harvin is as productive here as he was in Minnesota, we just helped our pass rush. Statistically, we had a better defense in 2006 than we did in 2005. But the 2005 defense made more plays and forced more turnovers because opposing teams had to play from behind for nearly the entire season. If our offense with Harvin is as good as some believe it will be, the same thing will happen in 2013, and we will be able to be more aggressive rushing the passer because teams will have to play from behind against us.

The best defense may not be a good offense, but an explosive offense makes a good defense better.

I was pro trading for harvin back when there was just speculation, but I was also very pro 6'2+WR in the draft. I could still see both but I think we are going to add TE who can catch to this offense. I'd love to get Jordan Reed or Gavin Escobar in the 2nd or 3rd and wow would our offense be exciting.

If we draft a TE now it is to create salary room.... Don't see it happening

I suspect six defensive players in the draft, one kicker and one offensive line player

We just spent our first round so guess we can't bid on Victor Cruz :)

I dont think we're quite as set on the OL as people like to think. If the DL player we want is not there when when we are ready to pick in any paticular round, I can easily see us choosing OL because this draft is loaded with good OL talent.

Man a good TE paired with Miller would just be killer. Think NE's dual TE's, think Harvin=walker, Rice+Tate better than NE's WR's, Lynch better than NE's RB's. Brady still a little better but almost=RW.

The offense would be stupid good. I still want a TE, we have to plan for the future and Zach might not be worth his contract next year.

Didn't realize Sherman was all about himself. Those type of players almost always cause havoc in the locker room. Interesting that he's so well-liked on the team.

I was just checking to see if my SA Spurs had played and rebounded from a horrible loss the other day....I am still trying to collect the errant brain matter that mushroom clouded out of my cranium now.....mind is blown when mind is blown.......i honestly don't know what to think...i do know that my primitive tim the tool man taylor brain functions are going into hyperdrive and I am ready to see Seahawks football right this very second.....in the back of my brain I am thinking OUR FIRST ROUNDER!!!! AND ANOTHER PICK!!!!!! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!............and then he has the stupid migraine issues as well and blah blah...but then i'm like...he's only 24....he is as talented and explosive a player as there is in the NFL.....we basically get a draft pick that is proven for one that could be a bust(although not likely with this FO..but that risk is most likely enterly bypassed)......again my mind is blown when my mind is blown...holy The offseason is now, moreso than ever...way to long.

*cough cough, Carpenter was at #25, cough cough*

You're right, dude is a massive talent, and only 24 years old. No way in hell we get someone at his level at the bottom of first round.

Mods, can we get a hold on all the new threads? It seems like 80% have something to do with Harvin.
