Seahawks wide receiver compares Russell Wilson to a legend

favrePercy Harvin did not compare Russell Wilson to a small quarterback, or a person like Drew Brees or Fran Tarkenton. Instead Harvin compared Wilson to a legend in Brett Favre.  

“I told him he reminds me of Brett [Favre],” Harvin said. “Just keeping the team calm no matter if it’s third-and-1, second down, whether we’re blowing a team out or whether we’re tied in the NFC Championship. He’s always got an even keel and for me, I look for that comfort in a quarterback and I know a lot of guys on the team look for it too.”

“Me and coach [Darrell] Bevell talk all the time because we played with Brett, we talk all the time about their similarities.”

Harvin played two seasons with Favre as his quarterback in Minnesota from 2009-2010. Harvin caught 131 passes for 1,658 yards and 11 touchdowns.

“He reminds me of Brett (Favre). His leadership is just off the charts.” – @Seahawks Percy Harvin on his QB Russell Wilson

That is a pretty awesome comparison if you ask me.  I have always loved Brett Favre, and I agree Wilson is a true leader.
