Seattle’s usage of receiver Percy Harvin has been a pretty hot topic in these parts this week.
One person not joining the debate is Harvin himself, who said to reporters Thursday that he doesn’t see anything wrong with the offense that can’t be fixed pretty easily.
“We’re 3-2,” he said. “We don’t’ have all losses right now. We’re still in a great spot right now. We just got little things to fix here and there and we’re going to be fine. … In that league little things can make big differences. …We watched film and it’s little things here and there. It’s nothing major or anything for any of us to be worried about. It’s just a little fixture here and there and we’re going to be fine.”
Harvin was held to minus-one yards on six touches by Dallas Sunday. But Harvin said the credit is due mostly to the Cowboys.
“I just think they overall had a great defensive gameplan, just taking away the bubble screens, some of the sweeps they took away,” Harvin said. “Overall (their) defensive coordinator had a heck of a game plan. It slowed us down. It threw us off rhythm. We didn’t convert on third downs so a mixture of all that, we wasn’t on key on offense.”
Asked if he wishes he were being used more as a vertical threat, Harvin said:
“I really have no feeling on it,” he said. “I’m just staying within the offense. When my number is called I’m trying to do it to the best of my ability. When I don’t have the ball, just try and effect the game in the same way.”
Asked if he feels like teams are defending him differently since the Green Bay game, when he had 110 yards on 11 touches, he said: “A little bit. I won’t get into the game plan, but defenses the last couple of weeks have been coming up with different game plans of making us think a little bit outside the box. Last week (Orlando) Scandrick did a great job of attacking the blocker on the bubble and kind of shut down that play. Teams just doing a great job right now, but we’ll keep dialing things up and we’ll get back on.”
