Just give they boy the ball!!! It's quite obvious he does magic with it almost everytime he gets it!!
Let's see some new tricks, I wanna se what we can really do!!!
GO VIKINGS!!!!!!!!!!
That is right! When Percy gets the ball, the whole complexion of the game changes.

I about shat myself when he ran back that kickoff during the Steeler game!!!!!

He is an awesome weapon...the coaches must be dreamin' about how to use him.

The thing is, is that they're winning. Childress actually has them doing some aggressive $h!t now. That Steelers game was alot closer than what the final score showed. AD is awesome. Harvin's a good choice for Rookie of the Year. Allen's a beast. The Williams Wall is intact. Rice looks VASTLY improved. Everything's just fine in Viking Land... "if it isn't broken, why fix it"?

No need to risk Harvin's health if Darius Reynaud is back... he was a stud on punt returns before his injury.
Excellent point. Let's keep Harvin on the kick return team because if he busted two for touchdowns in the first 8 weeks, he's likely to get at least one more in the final 8 weeks. That, and let's keep him on the field witht the first team offense, as he's a proven playmaker and gives defenses fits. Having him catch passes makes it even more likely that Peterson will bust off a long run. It's all good out there, and coming up purple. Skol Vikings.

The Vikings have the weapons to smoke the league. They just need to learn how to use them! I hope they bust Detroit in the mouth with a sound running attack. Keep the Lions O off the field and win convincingly. If they are to contend for the superbowl, now is the time to stop the stupid mistakes/turnovers. Time to shine.

I guess you're requesting a Percy ratio, aka "The Randy Ratio". Does it matter how Percy gets his touches? Apparently you want AD, Rice, Berrian, Taylor and Shiancoe to have fewer touches.
How many additional opportunities should Harvin have per game? Maybe 15 would fulfill your expectation. If we take away 3 from each of the five named players would you feel better?

My conclusion is that Childress is doing a very good job of managing this team. It all begs the question, when are you going to pull your head out of your **** and stop being so naive. I'm guessing that card is missing from your deck.
Maybe Harvin has matured enough to be even more involved. Is it unfair for me to use your own words in this debate, hmmm. Nah!
While I don't think Childress is doing a terrible job, I am tired of seeing easy wins turn into nail biters. Childress has a habit of nursing 7 point leads with very conservative and predictable play calling, namely, run, run, pass, punt. The score is too close at the end, and too many teams come roaring back in the fourth quarter. Check out opponent scoring by quarter, and you'll see what I say, if the memory of Green Bay and the Ravens won't do it for you.
