Tim Brown: Bill Callahan Purposely Sabotaged the Raiders in the Super Bowl
Tim Brown has had alot to say recently. He isn't a fan of Trestman, and now he believes former Raiders coach Bill Callahan sabotaged the 2002 Super Bowl team. He claims this mostly because Callahan changed the game plan 48 hours before Super Bowl XXXVII; "We all called it sabotage ... because Callahan and Gruden were good friends. And Callahan had a big problem with the Raiders, you know, hated the Raiders. You know, only came because Gruden made him come. Literally walked off the field on us a couple of times during the season when he first got there, the first couple years." Brown claims this was the reason why center Robbins went AWOL..I guess he was begging Callahan "not to do this to him," because they hadn't had any full practices with this new plan, and that they wouldn't have any time to adjust to it. And apparently, Jerry Rice agrees with Brown. "And in a way, maybe because he (Callahan) didn't like the Raiders, he was willing to sabotage just a little bit and let Jon Gruden go out and win this one," Rice said.

I guess it's possible, and the circumstances involved are suspicious. The one thing that has me skeptical is Brown's new hobby of talking alot. Seeking attention? Or is there something there?
