The Minnesota Vikings have traded their second-best player — receiver Percy Harvin — to the Seattle Seahawks. The Vikings will get a first and seventh-round pick this season and a mid-round pick in 2014, according to Jay Glazer.
Seattle just gave up a load (that reportedly includes a fat, new contract) for a malcontent, but what the hell do they care? They’re probably going to the Super Bowl in 2013 and they now have a legit No. 1 receiver. Oh, and Harvin will join another former Viking — Sidney Rice — in that receiving corp. That was a dangerous tandem in Minnesota that will probably be just as dangerous in Seattle.
The Vikings, on the other hand, get rid of a guy who didn’t want to play for them and demanded a trade. Why didn’t he want to play for the Vikings? Well, because they’re the fucking Vikings!
Only sheep fuckers like Jared Allen actually want to play for the Vikings.
So now the Vikings can go draft some more guys who don’t want to play for them. Not surprisingly, the last time they did something like this, they fucked up royally.
In 2005, the Vikings got a first and a seventh for Randy Moss. In brilliant fashion, the Vikings used that first-round pick on receiver Troy Williamson. He lasted three seasons with the team and was never a full-time starter. In his best season, Williamson had 455 receiving yards.
Maybe the Vikings can land another Troy Williamson this year!
Assuming Percy Havin ditches the diva complex and gets over his migraines, the Seahawks just become a serious contender. The Packers are going to need to get a hell of lot better on both sides of the ball (minus the passing game, of course).
The Seahawks were a serious contender before this. We’ll see how much a guy who thinks as much of practice as AI and who is a regular on the injury report helps them.
Giving up a 1st round pick is insanity. That gives the Vikings two first round picks again. Last year with two first round picks, the Vikings got Ryan Calil and Harrison Smith. So, yeah, I’d be a little concerned here.
Can you say COLLUSION?
Someone check Darrell Bevel’s cellphone. There is NO WAY the Seahawks agreed to this without someone having spoken to Ass-clown and getting some assurance that he’ll actually sign a new deal.
Not that it matters. I’m sure Goodell would just clear him of wrongdoing. Just like Bevel didn’t collude to bring Brent from retirement. Of course, who did Brent end up playing for a year later? Oh, the Vikings. Imagine that?

I wrote this in the other article:
The Seahwks really fucked us (again) by giving up the store for Percy Harvin. No way is he worth a 1st round draft pick. . .
Honestly? I don’t care if they had 3 or 4 1st round picks. They scored last year but that’s an illusion. The Vikings are adept as screwing the pooch on draft days.
Relax, they’ll find a way to shit the bed before the SB this year.
Enough with the Seahawk Super Bowl talk already Christ! Go write stuff on their page Monty or better yet go suck Pete Caroll’s schlong!
