Tim Brown Says Bill Callahan Sabotaged 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."
Callahan released a statement Tuesday night saying he "categorically and unequivocally" denied the allegations.
Jerry Rice said the Raiders' game plan did change on the Friday before the Super Bowl and the team was surprised by that, "because you worked all week long on running the football." On Friday, Callahan put in a new plan that had the team throwing the ball more than 60 times.
"Why would you wait to the last second to change the game plan?" Rice said.
