Well. I didn't expect this.

Yesterday we noted that Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli was asked about Peyton Manning and he noted that he wasn't allowed to talk about other teams' players. We also noted he had an opportunity to say the Chiefs weren't interested and he didn't take it. (There's also the argument that him not saying anything means nothing.)

And now, today, Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel talked to the media at the NFL Combine and left the door wide open on Manning. When asked about the Colts QB, Crennel said:

"Well, I'm not supposed to talk about anybody else's players," Crennel said with a smile, "he's still a player with Indianapolis. But with a talent like that, I would be crazy not to consider it if he were available. All right? I'll leave it at that."

Wow.

Maybe just some coach speak.

But maybe not. The Chiefs have now been given two opportunities to shoot down any Manning talk and they've haven't taken it either time.

Color me curious.
