Schneider comments on Harvin, Irvin and more

Seahawks general manager John Schneider was a guest on CBSSportsRadio today, and while there were no huge revelations, there were a few interesting tidbits:

— Schenider did the interview while driving through Indiana, having been at Notre Dame earlier in the day;

— Asked about Percy Harvin, Schneider said they will “evaluate” Harvin once he is eligible to come off the PUP list following the Tennessee game on Oct. 13. Schneider said reiterated what Pete Carroll said last week, that Harvin has been rehabbing both in Seattle and in New York with the doctors who did the surgery. He said they will be careful not to rush Harvin back, saying everybody will do the right thing. … just want to make sure he is completely right before we expose him to anything that would make him any worse.”;

— Asked about the return of DE/OLB Bruce Irvin this week, he noted that Irvin spent his time on suspension working out at West Virginia, where he played in college, and that “he is really excited” to be back;

— Asked about Seattle’s emphasis on turnovers and its ability to keep winning the turnover battle, Schneider said he used to believe that there used to be “ebbs and flows” in getting turnovers. But he said he has become a little more of a believer that teams can do things to consistently win the turnover battle after seeing the success Seattle has had in that area under Pete Carroll. “Every meeting, it’s all about the ball, about protecting the ball and doing whatever you can to rip the ball away. … it’s definitely someting that is really preached in our building and the guys really take a lot of pride in it.”
