Bevell finally seeing Harvin at his best

RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell has been waiting a year to see what he is seeing now, which is wide receiver Percy Harvin 100 percent healthy and showing how special he is when he is on the field all the time.

"Being able to have him on a consistent basis will be huge for us," Bevell said. "He’s an explosive playmaker. You want to be able to have the ball in his hands each and every game, because he can do a lot of things. He makes some wild plays."

Harvin spent most of the 2013 season recovering from hip surgery, so fans only saw brief glimpses of his skills, including the 87-yard kickoff return for touchdown in the Super Bowl.

"Just look at last year and those few plays and see the significant impact he had on those plays," Bevell said. "Now we’re going to use him in a lot of different ways. The defense has to pay attention to him when he’s out there.

"I think you saw that in the Super Bowl, as well. Just to be able to bring him around and do the things that we did with him, it had a significant impact even when he wasn’t getting the ball. I’m glad he’s on our side."
