He would have been a Hall of Famer if he stayed healthy but at least he stayed healthy in college and made the college Hall of FameJ. Kapp 11 wrote: ↑Fri Jun 05, 2020 6:31 pmAh ... rookie Harvin. I thought that guy was gonna be a HOFer. What a talent.S197 wrote: ↑Fri Jun 05, 2020 2:35 pm
Playing like your hair is on fire is a great visual Kapp. The only guy in recent memory that I can think of that played similarly is Percy Harvin. It's like his brain couldn't keep up with how fast his feet were moving. He was always slipping and sliding all over the place but when he was on, he was on. Especially that rookie year.
I was at the Favre-to-Lewis game ... 24th row, 50 yard line. Best seats of my life. What is often overlooked was that Harvin returned a kickoff for a TD that game. I remember it so vividly. He made this cut around his own 35 yard line and then just kicked in this other gear. Dudes had an angle, and in a second he was so far gone that it was ridiculous. Literally took my breath away.
Back to Tommy. He was the heir apparent to Fran Tarkenton, but he just couldn’t stay healthy. Still loved the guy. Gets my vote for Coolest Viking Ever.
