4. Harvin’s attitude could have been an issue in the locker room.
This one is based more on rumor than anything else, but reports came out Friday saying Harvin complained a lot about his usage in the offense and his anger “poisoned” the locker room.
He played fewer snaps than Baldwin and Kearse and didn’t like that he played so many jet sweeps and fly sweeps, which, reportedly, he felt were unproductive.
The Seahawks have a team-first mentality, so any time a player puts himself first, it stirs trouble in the locker room.
I have to wonder if Harvin crossed the line with one of the coaches and Seattle traded him away to prove a point, as if to say “You don’t want to do things our way? Then do things your way in New York.”
