I liked Chris Harris but he wasn't good enough in pass coverage. He's great at stopping the run but he couldn't cover enough ground in the secondary.
Manning can tackle ,, Unlike Wright who misses half the time
Also Manning is much better vs Run then anyone we have on roster at safety currently
And our current safeties are good in coverage? Harris was better and was less likely to be in wrong place at wrong time
As for Manning in SB ,, He was rookie and is far down on list of who to blame for SB loss (Rex and Turner #1 and #2)
Simple reality is that Bears organization refused to pay Manning when he finally developed into S they wanted (Foolish) and the coaches never liked Harris
Remember it was Lovie who wanted Adam Archuleta playing safety for Bears
