    I heard rumors since the shooting and some other background stuff but I found this more detailed than others

    Divas seek the spotlight, something Harrison never did.

    He may not have been a very good teammate but he was most certainly not a diva WR.

    Harrison has had some questionable character incidents here and there so I wouldn't want to assume that it was all PM's fault.

    Well, I wasn't really trying to point the finger at Manning, just saying at least Harrison didn't pull a T.O. and complain about not getting the ball in press conferences diva style. Camera hog. Obviously the relationship off the field deteriorated seeing how the Colts let him go despite he and Manning's had a deadly on the field relationship at one point. If I was to speculate on what happened I'd say Dungy (being the mentor he is now) probably kept a tight lid on Harrison while keeping Manning happy as well.
