New Year’s Day Links: Harvin, Seahawks ego, and more

Simply put, Happy New Year! The Seahawks are taking the day off before getting back on the field tomorrow, practicing Thursday and Friday as they begin preparation for the playoffs.

Times columnist Jerry Brewer, meanwhile, starts the New Year off with this piece stating that the biggest gift the Seahawks have given the city is ego.

They’re the sporting passion of the city, ,,, The pride of the city. The first great male pro sports team — on the women’s side, the Storm won the 2010 WNBA championship in dominant fashion — since Seattle sports hit rock bottom in 2008.

It’s an interesting thought and worth the read.

Also in our paper today is this from Jayson Jenks on Percy Harvin and what he could mean to the Seahawks.
