Re: Marvin Harrison's a Baby

Marvin Harrison is by far one of the best, or maybe the best WR in the league. Peyton does not make him. His route running and his hands make him great. But.......... that was pretty F'ed up what he did. We've dogged every other WR that did something similar(i.e. Randy Moss, T.O., etc.). Fair is fair!

Re: Marvin Harrison's a Baby

The difference is you get Randy Moss and TO doing it every week. I don't know what his deal was on Sunday. Maybe he's actually a selfish guy and just doesn't talk much...I don't know. Regardless, he's a great receiver.

Re: Marvin Harrison's a Baby

Well Dungy responded to the incident by first saying that he didn't notice Harrison had left early then he later said he gave Harrison permission to leave the field early to get some stretching in at halftime.

Either way, it doesn't mean he's not a great receiver. And at the same time, the fact that he's quiet and unassuming doesn't necessarily mean he's a great guy. Maybe he is, I don't know.

His numbers are amazing. He would be a good player for any team.
Harrison's numbers BEFORE Peyton Manning:

'96 (rookie year) = Indy's leading receiver with 836 yds, 8 TDs. QBs were Jim Harbaugh (405 passes thrown) and Paul Justin (127 passes thrown).

'97 = Indy's leading receiver with 866 yds, 6 TDs. QBs were Jim Harbaugh (309 passes thrown), Paul Justin (140 passes thrown) and Kelly Holcomb (73 passes thrown).


His numbers actually went DOWN when Manning first arrived, only 700+ yards in '98.

Re: Marvin Harrison's a Baby

If it's true...I've never seen him avoid the huddle. That would be stupid unless he's supposed to run the same route EVERY play...which would be stupid.

I'll have to watch for it, but I'm finding that a little hard to believe.

Re: Marvin Harrison's a Baby

Well Harrison has admitted to not really watching game film or studying his next opponent. He says he doesn't see the point. And he's also said that he often times doesn't go in the huddle.

I suppose it's online somewhere but I saw it on some piece about how great a connection Manning and Harrison have, so much so that he knows what the play will be without having to go into the huddle often times.

Re: Marvin Harrison's a Baby

I thought Indy ran a no-huddle offense?

Re: Marvin Harrison's a Baby

Yeah, Madden confirmed that Harrison usually avoids the huddle (he might stand close, but he's not IN it), sits alone at the end of the bench, and generally has few emotions. Madden doesn't seem to think it's a sign of anything at all -- totally normal for Marvin.

I know a lot of people don't like Madden, but the guy knows football and he talks with a lot of the players regularly -- he has credibility.

Re: Marvin Harrison's a Baby

Also, from my understanding, they don't call a single play in the Indy huddle (they call 3). So, basically nobody knows what play is coming until they lineup (I think this is what onlydarksets was alluding to).

That wasn't my understanding. I thought they rarely used the huddle, and instead Manning determines which of the plays to call while they are at the line.

However, I am not certain of this.

Re: Marvin Harrison's a Baby

I'm can't remember if they us the no huddle but I do know that they line up with three plays. That could mean Manning has had three plays called in to him. When they line up manning decides which play to run according to what the D is showing him. He calls the play at the line and they run the play. As for Harrison this is the only thing I have ever heard about him except what he does good on the field. To compare him to Moss or TO is just not even fair and for other to call him names they don't even know him.

Re: Marvin Harrison's a Baby

Well, regardless, he's from the U (Syracuse), so I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, even if he did cost me my last fantasy game.
