No thread, so I thought I'd start one just to vent a wee bit.
As you know Tim Brown has accused his former head coach Bill Callahan of deliberately trying to lose Super Bowl 37 to Bill's ol' pal Chucky. Then dimwit Jerry Rice climbed aboard the stupid train and said the same thing.
The core of their argument is that the game plan changed late (either Friday or Saturday, there seems to be disagreement among former Raiders) and the change from a running attack to a passing attack doomed them. Mind you, this is two wide receivers saying this.
On the face of it, changing a game plan a day or two days before a Super Bowl is dumb. But as Mangini pointed out, this Super Bowl was played with a normal 1-week gap from the championships. Mangini says on a one-week schedule, as during the regular season, it's perfectly normal to change your game plan as you go. Also, center Barrett Robbins lost his mind Saturday, and some former Raiders say that's why the game plan was changed.
Today Tim Brown talked to his lawyer. Today Tim Brown's lawyer noted that Bill Callahan used the word "defamatory' in his denial.
Today Tim Brown suddenly denies using the word "sabotage."
Today Tim Brown looks like an idiot.
