So Percy Harvin thought he was Biff Tannen and every other wide receiver on the Seattle Seahawks' roster was George McFly. On Friday, the Seahawks traded Harvin to the New York Jets, getting a conditional draft pick for a Pro Bowl-caliber player with a volcanic personality. It was the news of the week in the NFL, and at first glance there would seem to be no doubt about who made out best in this deal. The Eagles. There's still plenty of skepticism about whether the Eagles, even after their 5-1 start, are equipped to win the Super Bowl this season, or even reach it. There are two reasons for that skepticism.

The San Francisco 49ers have acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin from the Baltimore Ravens for a sixth-round draft pick. Boldin, a star in Baltimore's run to the Super Bowl title last season, must pass a physical to complete the deal. The Ravens announced the trade Monday. Boldin had six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 34-31 Super Bowl victory over the 49ers. The 32-year-old Boldin had said he'd consider retirement rather than leave Baltimore. But going to the NFC champions might change his mind.

Larry Fitzgerald, Cardinals: Ran an offseason camp in his hometown near Minneapolis that attracted a number of current players, plus retired guys Jerry Rice and Cris Carter. Fitzgerald takes being football's best wide receiver seriously. Andre Johnson, Texans: Love the chemistry he's developed with Matt Schaub. In fact, because Houston has a more reliable quarterback, bump Andre Johnson ahead of Calvin Johnson. Randy Moss, Patriots: If you start your team with a high pick at running back, getting Moss late in the second round isn't so bad; early third round is even better.

After leading the Minnesota Vikings to a surprising playoff berth last season, Leslie Frazier has reached an agreement on a contract through 2014. The Vikings exercised the fourth-year option on his contract Wednesday, helping Frazier avoid what would have been a lame-duck season in 2013. He was entering the final year of his deal, and talks of an extension started to become an issue publicly as the Vikings mounted a stunning December run to the playoffs. Stuck at 6-6 and without injured receiver Percy Harvin, the Vikings rode running back Adrian Peterson to four straight victories, including a thriller over Green Bay in the regular-season finale to thrust them into the postseason.

Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings have begun their offseason sooner than they hoped. The question now is whether Favre will be around when next season starts. Players gathered at the practice facility yesterday for the final team meeting in the aftermath of their devastating NFC Championship Game loss at New Orleans the night before. Favre, who has 1 year left on a 2-year contract, was not in the locker room yesterday when it was open to reporters. He told ESPN.

It's a testament to the pervasiveness of fantasy football that a quick scan of the Internet shows that it seems more has been written about how the Randy Moss trade affects make-believe franchises than how it impacts the real NFL teams involved. In the fantasy universe, not only are owners of Moss impacted, but there's a ripple effect that reaches every owner of a player whose numbers will be changed as a result: Tom Brady, Wes Welker, and Aaron Hernandez for the Patriots and Brett Favre, Percy Harvin, Bernard Berrian, and Visanthe Shiancoe for the Vikings.

Harvin caught eight passes for 108 yards for the Vikings (4-1), who have given up a combined 33 points in winning three straight games. Christian Ponder finished 25 for 35 for 258 yards and two scores against the reeling Titans (1-4). Tennessee 0 0 0 7 – 7 Minnesota 7 6 10 7 – 30 First quarter   Min–Harvin 4 run (Walsh kick)

The price of tight ends just went up for fantasy football owners. Indianapolis tight end Dallas Clark, a beneficiary of the prolific Peyton Manning, suffered a season-ending wrist injury last Sunday. This comes a week after Green Bay's Jermichael Finley, another blue-chip TE, saw his season ended by a knee injury. Of course, fantasy leagues will differ as far as which players might be on waivers, but a tight end who could still be widely available because he was so unproductive until recently is Pittsburgh's Heath Miller.

A DAY BEFORE Tuesday's start of free agency, two of the NFL's top wide receivers were traded. Baltimore sent Anquan Boldin to San Francisco, and Minnesota shipped Percy Harvin to Seattle. The 49ers acquired Boldin for a sixth-round draft pick. Boldin, a star in Baltimore's run to the Super Bowl title, must pass a physical to complete the deal. Boldin, 32, had six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 34-31 Super Bowl victory over the 49ers. Meanwhile, Harvin, 24, will join the Seahawks for a package of draft picks that includes Seattle's first-round selection next month, No. 25 overall.

ABOUT THE only thing certain concerning Randy Moss this season is that no other receiver in recent memory has done so little, but been discussed so much. The reason is simple: potential. Moss has yet to reach 100 yards this season and is 63rd among wide receivers in catches. Some of those with more receptions are Chansi Stuckey, Earl Bennett and Jason Avant , who is generally the Eagles' fifth option when he's on the field. For all the plays Moss takes off, there are the highlight-reel touchdowns.

Brandon Marshall is screaming at BFF Jay Cutler. Peyton Manning breaks the all-time touchdown record, but leaves Julius Thomas out of the fun. DeMarco Murray one-ups the legendary Jim Brown. And Bills running backs drop like flies. What's next, the Jaguars are going to win a football game? It was that kind of weekend in Fantasyland. One of those quirky weeks when usually reliable studs like Marshawn Lynch, Giovani Bernard, Alshon Jeffery and Jimmy Graham are marginalized and fantasy scores are generally depressed across the board.

Last season, I declared Cam Newton the "Most Frustrating Player in Fantasy Football. " Perhaps exasperating is the better term, but whatever words you use to describe him, they probably aren't consistently flattering. Newton will drive you crazy because he can go for weeks at a time with mediocre performances, then he'll put on a dazzling show as he did yesterday while sitting on your bench. Not my bench, mind you. I learned my lesson with Cam a couple of years ago. But Newton has plenty of competition for the "MFP Award" this season.

ANOTHER DAY, another report about the Eagles possibly trading DeSean Jackson. This time it was Comcast SportsNet's Derrick Gunn, saying league sources told him the Eagles are not shopping Jackson but are willing to listen to offers, and that so far, the 49ers and the Patriots have inquired. Gunn also said the front office has informed Jackson that it is listening to offers. This might have been the most tangible piece of information to emerge from more than 2 weeks worth of speculation about a possible divorce between the Birds and the wideout whose 1,332 receiving yards last season ranked second in the history of the franchise.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - It took 12 seconds for Percy Harvin to validate the investment the Seattle Seahawks made in him and the six months of patience they showed in him. Harvin collected the opening kickoff in the second half of the Seahawks' 43-8 Super Bowl win over the Denver Broncos after one bounce and raced for an 87-yard touchdown. Trailing by 22-0 at halftime, the Broncos needed a strong third quarter to have any chance, but Harvin ensured that the Seahawks maintained dominance of Sunday's Super Bowl with his electrifying return.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - It was the move that made you realize the Seattle Seahawks were all in for a Super Bowl-or-bust season in 2013. Just as the Eagles had nearly a decade ago, the Seahawks traded for the kind of No. 1 wide receiver they thought could put them over the top. In the Eagles' case, the player was Terrell Owens, and for one mesmerizing season it looked as if it was going to be the greatest move in franchise history. The Seahawks, in March, surrendered first- and third-round picks to Minnesota in last year's draft and a third-round pick in 2014 to get the lightning-quick Percy Harvin.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - There were several points where it seemed like Percy Harvin wouldn't be here, if the Seattle Seahawks made it to Super Bowl XLVIII. But he is, and he's thankful. "It's a blessing to be able to play in the Super Bowl, a game that I've dreamed of playing in since I was a little kid. After all I've been through, to be able to know I've reached that goal, right here, right now, it's amazing," Harvin said yesterday. The first major obstacle arose in training camp, when Harvin, the Seahawks' big offseason wideout signing at 6 years and $67 million, needed serious, potentially season-ending hip surgery.

PRO BOWL quarterback Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons have agreed to terms on a 5-year contract extension. Falcons spokesman Reggie Roberts said the deal was being finalized as Ryan led the offense through practice yesterday on the first day of training camp. A source familiar with the situation said Ryan's extension is for $103.75 million deal, with $59 million guaranteed. The source said Ryan will average $20.75 million during the first 3 years of the extension. "I've always not worried about the business side of it," Ryan said at a news conference last night.

I HATE intrigue. So why don't you just tell me now, oh, Great NFL Prognasicator. Who's going to be making Super Bowl snow angels in the Meadowlands next February? Would you believe Oakland and Carolina? No? Neither would I. Just wanted to make sure you were paying attention. Right here, right now, before training camp even has begun, before the first torn ACL or ruptured Achilles', before Andy Reid has informed the Kansas City media for the first, but certainly not the last, time that he has to put his players in better position to make plays, I'm going to go with the Broncos and Seahawks, which, based on my past Super Bowl predictions, means the Broncos and Seahawks are the only two teams you can count on not being in the Super Bowl.
