Interesting rant by Tim Brown about how he thinks our "friend" Bill Callahan undermined the Raiders at their Super Bowl appearance 10 years ago. Wow!
Speaking on Sirius XM NFL Radio this past Saturday, Brown speculated that Callahan might have changed the team's game plan the Friday before the game because he was friends with Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden and "hated" the Raiders. (Gruden had coached the Raiders before taking the Bucs job the prior offseason.)
"We get our game plan for victory on Monday, and the game plan says we're gonna run the ball," Brown said. "We averaged 340 (pounds) on the offensive line, they averaged 280 (on the defensive line). We're all happy with that, everybody is excited."
But Brown said Callahan, now the offensive coordinator with the Dallas Cowboys, called an audible the Friday before the game, switching from a run-heavy attack to a passing one.
"We all called it sabotage ... because Callahan and Gruden were good friends," Brown said. "And Callahan had a big problem with the Raiders, you know, hated the Raiders
