If this is Hali's mindset, he can GTFO too.
I don't necessarily know if it's "assholes defending him" versus guys just trying to be a decent teammate.
I have absolutely no problem with Winston standing up for his QB. That's what an offensive line player is supposed to do.
However, Hali should probably reconsider posting about offensive side of the ball stuff, especially when it's a trigger switch situation with the fans at this point. Just let stuff fall where they will and show up in shape without off-season problems like he did last year. They've got a brand new coordinator and he probably should be watching film of his games and the like versus tweeting about Cassel.
That being said, Cassel does seem to be a pretty decent guy who everyone like when he's not under center. I'm sure that all the guys on the team want a fresh start after the Peeholi reign of terror, but that doesn't excuse Matt's inability to effectively QB at this level. At this point of his career, he should be pretty damn happy with those 60 million dollars he got from KC and a few more years backing up Brady again. He was the main addition/cog for Peeholi and it's time for both parties to move on.
