ROTF over that one FX! To say that Marvin Harrison is soft spoken & a man of few works, is a H-U-G-E understatement. Thanks for making SW1 have a good chuckle over that one pal!  :thmup:

 

Marvin is Awesome! I'm not slamming him at all. He's just the smart, hardworking, quiet type & I love that in my beloved INDY NFL icons actually.

If I remember right, he was supposed to announce the Fleener pick but some dude who won a contest got to say it instead and Marvin just stood there.

I think Tarik Glenn announced a pick last year. Marvin was the year before.

I remember an interview I saw with QB Peyton Manning once regarding WR Marvin Harrison once & the subject of physical conditioning came up. Peyton basically said that Marvin is a perfectionist on route running & a workout warrior, but he didn't always eat right. He liked candy bars a little too much, but when you need a touchdown, Marvin got it for ya." 

 

I guess I just like the fact that Harrison splurged & ate junk food now & then. It makes me like him more an an average joe I guess.  ;)

That does sound hilarious Nadine. I wish I had seen it. If anyone can find a link or You Tube video documenting Harrison's junk food obsession, I would love to see it on this topic page. Thank you. 

 

I'd even settle for an INDY Star expose newspaper article on it too. No need to scour the world wide web looking for it though.

James was spectacular to watch. This journey down nostalgic, sentimental RCA Dome lane paying tribute to cherished Colts of years past has been fun.  :colts:  Thanks Dustin for doing this post BTW.

I'll ask around.  He has a serious junk food addiction. Don't know how he was so fit!

I remember seeing that video and wondering if he was joking.  I couldn't believe all the junk he was eating.  I think when I was his age I probably ate just as bad, but I wasn't trying to play a professional sport.  Amazing he could eat like that and still perform all those years.  Great genes, I guess.

 

I'm also surprised there's no "Will he bring a bucket on stage with him" joke in this thread?

Yup, and marvin actually had a clause in his contract that basically said the colt's couldn't tell him what to eat. TRUE STORY.

Edge wasn't better then Harrison..

Harrison is a hall of famer and was productive 95% of his career.

Edge 2 1/2 good seasons.. Then he busted his knee and was never the same.

Uhhhh....that is highly, HIGHLY inaccurate.

 

Comparing a WR and RB is apples and oranges....but James ranks among All-Time NFL leaders at RB and was an outstanding blocker.

Nadine you're awesome! Thank you so much for finding that Harrison junk food home video. I'm still laughing over it. If a mouse gets into Marvin's house, it will think it died & went to critter eating heaven. LOL!

 

BK, I had no idea you could get a non disclosure junk food clause into a player's NFL contract. Fascinating stuff there. Twinkies, my main junk food vice, will probably spell my demise actually, but I digress. Ha! Ha!

Not saying Edge wasn't a good football player. He dominated the NFL until he blew out his knee. After that, he was never the same guy. Marvin was the best receiver in the league for a long time, the best to ever wear a colts uniform, ever.

And Harrison had eight seasons of more than 10+ TD's

Eight seasons of more then 1,000 yards.

1,102 receptions.

Averaged over 13 yards per catch.

He wore a Colts uniform for 13 years! Edge only half of that.

Post knee injury Edge could turn a 2 yard loss into a 4 yard gain. He could also turn a 20 yard gain into a 4 yard gain.

I disagree with that statement whole heartily.  One of the things that made James a great RB was that he did not leave yards on the field, even after his knee surgery.  My word people act like he faded into obscurity after he injured his knee.  IN 4 years with the Colts after his knee injury he had 1,281 carries for 5,302 yards (4.2 ypc average), 35 tds and also caught 207 passes for 1,466 yards and 2 more TDs. 3 seasons over 1200 yards rushing and 2 seasons over 1500 yards.  He had way more than 2-1/2 good seasons.

He went out without a bang (pun intended :)).

 

Harrison wasn't the same guy in 2008 after his knee injury in 2007. That is what worries me about Wayne in 2014.
