He even went out of his way to make that clear:
- Dec 13
And despite all this, people STILL think Robinson said "Weis hated Cassel".
Likewise, Robinson never said a word about Haley having any kind of particular fondness for Cassel, but people still act like he did.
Who said Weis HATED Cassel? This place is almost EXACTLY opposite of that - any time it gets brought up that 2010 was Cassel's one good year, the instant answer is "Weis".
Charles Robinson said Weis wanted to use Cassel differently than Haley and ultimately gave up and told Haley to take care of it. Haley was thus (reportedly) responsible for the run-first, completely unbalanced offense that gave Matt Cassel his one and only trip to the Pro Bowl.
