Number 8 reason not to select Percy Harvin


I’ve seen a lot of mock drafts that have the Bears selecting Florida wide receiver Percy Harvin with their first round draft pick.  I am writing to implore Jerry Angelo not to select this young man and I have no other reason except the number on his shirt. 


We all know someone who wore jersey #8 at Florida and most recently for the Bears, don’t we?  Look familiar Rex Grossman haters?


As a bonus reason, another infamous Number 8 for the Bears – CADE McNOWN!!!

In fact, the last decent Bear to wear Number 8 was Maury Buford.  I need more cowbell!!!


All kidding aside, it seems like Percy Harvin is a lot like Devin Hester; a burner with top end speed who can go get it.  I’m just not sure that a) we need another Hester and b) we have anyone to get it to him.  Orton’s deep ball accuracy has been a consistent knock.   The Bears effectively got rid of the guy who could throw a decent deep ball when he wasn’t throwing it to the other team.  What was his number?
