It seems like a lot of people interpreted that as Weis said Cassel couldn't cut it, which wasn't the case. There's also an assumption that Weis gave up on Cassel, when in fact all he did was give the development of cassel to Haley. My guess is it had more to do with Haley trying to pull one of his "break him down to build him up" acts like he did on Bowe, and Weis knew that Cassel's vagina bruised too easy for that kind of approach.
None of that means that Weis didn't still have a lot of influence on the offense we ran, and it's success. In fact, everything about that offense suggests plays were being called in a way to least expose cassel. They weren't maximizing Cassel, they were minimizing him.
