Bill Callahan might be an idiot, but there's no way anybody is sabotaging a Super Bowl.
Does this alter Tim Brown's Hall of Fame chances this year? this sounds pretty crazy.
And it really annoyed me how Brown said this. If you're going to do something as big as accusing a head coach of intentionally losing a Super Bowl, say it with some conviction. You can't accuse Callahan of that and then say, "I'm not saying, but.."
Exactly. Brown throws all this crap out there, then says, "I can't say it for certain.... It might just be my opinion..." What a load of crap.
If Callahan would have pulled a stunt like that, the biggest thing he would have sabotaged was his own coaching career.

"Academics is important, because without them....you aren't allowed to play!"
Jerry Rice is backing Brown 100% on espn right now.
His argument basically is "Tim Brown is a good guy and he was a Raider for awhile, so if he says it, I believe him." Jerry Rice-caliber insight.
Gross mismanagement is not sabotage. Changing the gameplan on Friday before the Super Bowl is kind of odd. Jerry Rice just said he thought it contributed to Barrett Robbins going AWOL before that Super Bowl. Is this Al Davis saying to throw the ball more instead of running as the initial gameplan seems to have been?
I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase. It's all in the game though, right?
Both these guys are ballers and complete idiots.
d/v that video so is patriots
I'm not saying one way or the other. But FB Jon Ritchie is saying today that everything the Raiders practiced all week was scrapped at the last minute. So there was a change in game plans. For whatever reason - I don't know. I find it hard to believe a first year head coach who made it to the Superbowl would sabotage anything - let alone his career,
Then again - I thought Manti Te'o had a girlfriend.
Crockett was interviewed and quizzed on this for 2 segments this morning. He was pretty clear that the gameplan changed BECAUSE of Robbins absence which is significantly different than the gameplan causing Robbins absence. Crockett, who was featured in the original gameplan said the back up center was the long snapper and had limited experience in calling line assignments. Robbins absence force callahan's hand, according to Crockett.
Tim Brown meet INSPECTOR Callahan
Callahan responds categorizing the allegations as defamation and asking for an immediate retraction....as he should.
Brown and Rice are both going to have to retract, and Rice should be worried about disciplinary action from ESPN as well. What a couple of idiots.
In the history of football, has a wide receiver ever complained about the game plan being switched to throw it more? It's not like Gannon was a scrub, he was the MVP that year.
Full backpedal mode engaged
Former Raiders receiver Tim Brown is backtracking from his suggestions that his old coach Bill Callahan sabotaged the team in Super Bowl XXXVII. Brown said Wednesday morning on the Dan Patrick Show.
WTF, this is a Super Bowl thread???
Maryland her coaching search.
Tim Brown saying he had no hope the Raiders were gonna win because he, Rice and Gannon were going to be asked to win the game instead of putting the game on Charlie effing Garner's back (not knocking Charlie but he wasn't exactly a superstar) is fucking ridiculous
I don't even remember that superbowl
One of the worst Super Bowls ever. It wasn't even like other blowouts (49ers over Chargers, Cowboys over Bills, 49ers over Broncos, Redskins over Broncos) where you just had to admire the greatness of the winning team. Tampa was good, but they mainly won that game because Oakland was so unbelievably bad. All I remember is Barret Robbins going missing the day before the game and The Great Dwight Smith picking off Rich Gannon a couple of times.
