That's by and large one of the key principles in the NFL.
Crennel certainly hasn't gone out of his way to protect Cassel. He has so far said he wants Orton back, implied if Orton was back it would be a serious battle, said you would be stupid to not go look at Manning, and finally almost blew his load talking about RG3.
Now none of these comments are crazy or prove anything. That being said, none of this, or anything even close, has been talked about by the organization before this offseason. With what we are looking at, any sign has to be viewed as positive.
As down as people including myself have been, I think we are at the point where if the chance came KC would get another QB. Now I am not saying Pioli will take the necessary steps, or pay the price we feel he should. I do feel that if the right price comes around, he would go after one of the 3 QBs Crennel seems to like. I just hope he is going to be more agressive at that than most of us expect.
A few months ago I felt that even if a team offered a good trade up for a QB to us or if Manning asked to come here Pioli would have turned both situations down. Now I think at the very least we are at the point where he would take it if he felt it was fair for the team. I want more than that in agressiveness, but atleast the door is open.
