Childress has high praise for Harvin

June 17th, 2009 – 8:37 PM by Chip Scoggins

Brad Childress had a funny exchange with a fan in the audience when Paul Allen asked him about what his initial impression of rookie Percy Harvin was this offseason.

A fan yelled “Kick-ass offense.” Childress responded, “Wait and see.”

Childress then talked about Harvin’s talent.

“I think the first thing I thought about was really the same feelings the first time we handed Adrian Peterson the ball,” Childress said. “It was with 50 rookies that we bring in right after the draft. When you see it with your own eyes … the thing that came to mind right away was, Wow.”
