We can all hope that P. Carroll uses him as effectively as he was used on the Vikings where, when they beat the Niners last season, Ponder had one of his best days and Harvin torched the Niners for an amazing zero touchdowns.
Didn't he have like 175 total yards though.
According to the box score, he had nine receptions for 89 yards and no TD's. So, he was effective, but it's not like he torched the Niners or anything like that. He also had three KO returns for decent yardage, so maybe that's where you got the total yards. Hey, he's good. No question about it. But, IMO, they paid too much for him and they are taking a huge gamble mainly because of his injury history and, shall we say, his commitment to the game. He's a quick cutter going to a cold, wet, slippery artificial surface for 8 games a year. He's been known to miss games because of a headache. A headache??!!
