Schefter was right regarding Titans' interest in Harrison

Adam Schefter had an active first week, to say the least, at ESPN.

Apart from the fact plenty of NFL-related developments came as the paint was drying on Schefter’s parking spot, Schefter drew the ire of Titans coach Jeff Fisher, who loudly disputed Schefter’s report that the Titans had placed a call to free-agent wideout Marvin Harrison.

“We’ve had no contact whatsoever with
Marvin or his agent and to be quite honest with you I don’t know where
Adam Schefter got that information
,” Fisher said Wednesday.

As to the possibility that the Titans might call Harrison in the future, Fisher said, “You’ll have to just stay put and see what Adam says because he’s
got a better take on what we’re doing than we do.”

As it turns out, Fisher’s right.  Because our own research tells us that, indeed, Schefter’s report was accurate — the Titans contacted Harrison.

Then again, we should have known that Fisher was fibbing.  After all, he’s an NFL head coach.

And his lips were moving.

Meanwhile, Harrison continues to wait not only for a phone call, but also for a suitable offer.

    You seem to have left a key part of your story out: The research. This means nothing without facts to back it up.

    CountSnail: What do you want him to do? Name his sources? No reporter with a brain does that.

    What “own research”? Who did you talk to? Not saying you’re wrong, but if I were a protected source, I’d spout out all kinds of BS to lead people down the wrong track if it suited my interests.

    CountSnail: Florio is no reporter, he’s a blogger. As for his brain, I digress.
    And since he’s a lawyer, do you know how you can tell when he’s manipulating the truth?
    When he’s blogging….

    Harrison needs THE CLEANER, Tony Dungheap, to pave the way for him and call Jeff Fisher.

    So I take it Mike Florio and Adam Schefter are gay lovers? That’s what I gathered from this story.

    Mike Florio… since when do the coaches in the NFL tell you or Schefter or anyone anything… what the hell do they owe you???
    They have a football team to run… and games to win by doing so, right? Just like Childress with the Favre move… more and more… you seem to act as though these guys should be running all of their moves by you to report on beforehand.
    Are you serious? How is it that Jay Glazer digs this stuff up?

    What the hell is Rex Grossman talking about?

    What the hell is Rex Grossman talking about?
    Florio does seem to have a man crush on Schefter…

    I still think it would be a mistake.
    Yancey Thigpen, anyone?
