Tim Brown Talks About His Controversial Comments with Booger and Rich

Former Raiders WR Tim Brown stirred up controversy while talking on Sirius XM NFL Radio. Brown said that then coach Bill Callahan changed the gameplan for Super Bowl XXXVII against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers just days before the game was played.

“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. You know, only came because Gruden made him come … It’s hard to say that the guy sabotaged the Super Bowl. You know, can you really say that? That can be my opinion, but I can’t say for a fact that that’s what his plan was, to sabotage the Super Bowl. … That’s hard to say, because you can’t prove it.”

Brown claimed that Callahan’s original gameplan was to win by running the ball. But on Friday Callahan decided to emphasize an  aerial attack against the Bucs defense. Throwing against guys like John Lynch and Ronde Barber didn’t sit well with Brown, despite being a wide receiver.

The Bucs went on to beat the Raiders 48-21 for their first and only Super Bowl win in franchise history.

Rich Herrera and Booger McFarland, who played for the Bucs during their Super Bowl season in 2002, spoke with Brown about his comments.
