NEWPORT, N.J. - At least he didn’t say Richard Nixon.

Or Ronald Reagan.

As Percy Harvin was being led off the field at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field, he was pestering one of the trainers to give him his helmet back.

It was a damp Saturday afternoon in Seattle on Jan. 11 and Harvin had just had his bell rung for the second time in the Seahawks divisional playoff game against the New Orleans Saints.

After having his marbles scrambled on the previous occasion, he’d managed to get back into the game.

Not this time.

“I remember telling them: ‘Give me it,’” Harvin recalled on Thursday, referring to his headgear. “They wouldn’t do it.”

Instead, medical officials began asking him questions, as is the case when a player is believed to have a concussion.

And so it began.

“Where are you at?”

“What game is this?”

“Who’s the president?”

Said Harvin: “I just remember thinking to myself: What possibly can happen next?”
