Well, when it looked like things were going to get a lot better in Seattle for the Seahawks, 1st year Seattle Seahawk wide receiver Percy Harvin is sidelined due to hip surgery.

Just like last season, Sidney Rice and Golden Tate will remain the Seahawks’ primary receivers while Percy rehabs.

But where we ended last year without him, I’m confident, we’re all confident in our ability to make plays. We’re going to need to make more plays without him around, but where we are now, we have so many playmakers.” Golden Tate said in an interview with
