Brock Huard’s Chalk Talk: Percy Harvin and the ‘Belly Flip’

Percy Harvin has touched the ball 20 times over Seattle’s first two games, but more notable than the volume is the variety of ways in which the Seahawks have used their most and versatile and explosive weapon.

He’s been thrown to both behind the line of scrimmage and beyond it, he’s taken handoffs while running in motion, he’s returned kickoffs, and on Sunday against San Diego he lined up in the backfield and took a pitch 51 yards for a touchdown.

That play is the subject of this week’s edition of “Chalk Talk” with Brock Huard.

The situation: The Seahawks trailed 3-0 late in the first quarter and faced a third-and-1 from their own 49.

The play: Harvin lined up at tailback with Marshawn Lynch at fullback. After faking a handoff to Lynch, Russell Wilson pitched to Harvin, who turned the corner and got a nice block from Doug Baldwin down the sideline en route to the end zone.

The statement: “Everybody crashed down on 24,” Harvin told reporters, referring to Lynch’s jersey number. “Once he pitched it, Doug did a heck of a job on the block and I did the easy part.”

You can watch the play here.
