The backlash against 610 Sports' Bob Fescoe's report continues.

On Monday morning Fescoe reported that Charlie Weis told some people during a postgame meal following the Ravens game that Todd Haley stripped him of play calling duties at in the second half. Fescoe cited two sources who said Weis "was up there telling anybody who would listen that Todd Haley took second half play calling duties away from him".

Now ESPN's Adam Schefter cites a Chiefs source who says Weis called every play.

610 Sports in Kansas City reported Monday that Chiefs coach Todd Haley stripped Weis of play-calling duties at halftime of the loss. However, a Chiefs source insisted that Haley did not take over play-calling duties from Weis and that Weis called every play in the game, including the controversial fourth-and-inches call that was stopped for a loss.

Schefter says one team source called anything to the contrary "just outright lies".

Chiefs QB Matt Cassel was asked on Monday whether Weis called all the plays against the Ravens this weekend. Via KCChiefs.com:

"Yesterday we were operating as normal," Cassel said. "I didn't notice any difference. We have been doing that throughout the year where I just get the call in from Nick Sirianni, who is our QBs coach and we go."

By now we've heard enough versions of this story that you can decide for yourself who to believe.
