Just the other day, talking with Brett on Gmail chat as I often do to make plans for VT, I mentioned that I thought that after a quarter of the regular season went by that Percy Harvin should be in the conversation for league MVP.

I even went so far as to suggest he should be in second place, behind only Matt Ryan, because of the important role Harvin has played in the Vikings three wins, and the fact that he was the only offensive player worth a hoot in their one loss.

Thursday, Harvin was recognized not as the league’s best player, but was bestowed a pretty high honor.  Harvin won the NFC’s special teams player of September.

Harvin is averaging 38.3 yards on nine kickoff returns and set the tone for an upset win against Detroit by returning the opening kickoff for 105 yards and a score.  That return caused the Lions to kickoff short for the rest of the game, as they were scared to death he would do it twice… or more.

Interestingly enough, the AFC’s special teams player of the month is Titans return man Darius Reynaud, who is a former Viking.

After serving for about three years as the Editor at Vikings Gab, he decided to branch off on his own and start Vikings Territory, hoping someone might accidentally visit the site from time to time. Now, he is thrilled to present you with one of the most comprehensive and analytical Vikings sites that you are going to find. More than anything, he hopes you enjoy reading VT as much as he enjoys putting it together.


  1. Cheech is the man! Time to lock him up long term.
