Rookie Percy Harvin is showing the Minnesota Vikings that they made the right choice in drafting him. Brett Favre is showing that Minny made the right choice in signing him to a contract.

These two athletes, who are playing very well, are in their first year in Minnesota and are already making a stand.

But the question is, should Percy Harvin be Brett Favres number one target besides Bernard Berrian?

Percy Harvin already has 14 receptions for 167 yards, and two touchdowns along with 11.9 yards per catch. He also took a role in returning as well. That's a good start for a rookie like him.

Now to Favre, this 40 year old has 837 yards, eight touchdowns and only one interception for a 104.7 passer rating. That's great for an old quarterback.

These two are doing play well so far this season, hoping to lead them to a Super Bowl.

The Vikings have not been to the Super Bowl since Fran Tarkenton led them to it in 1977. So it's been 32 years, the age of Tom Brady. So you got to think that's a long time, huh?

For the question I had earlier, should Percy Harvin be Brett Favre's number one target?

I say no, Harvin is still learning the Vikings' offense. Maybe later in the year when he learns it some more or in a couple of seasons.

As of now though the Vikings receivers are on fire. So picking up Harvin hasn't been negative as people thought it would be. Expect some great things out of the kid from Florida this season.
