Super Bowl XXXVII ControversyTim Brown, Jerry Rice, Super Bowl

Is it just me or has this been the weirdest couple weeks in football in a long time?
Thoughts? I thought this was total bunk until Rice chimed in.

The Bucs are the champs that year it's never going to change so I have no clue why this is any more than a quick blurb on the 11pm Sportscenter.

Did he not have a good gameplan, and irrationally changed his mind two days before the Super Bowl? Probably
Did he purposefully sabotage his team, and throw the Super Bowl and give a ring to Gruden? Absolutely not.
I think Tim Brown especially is confusing the two.

Also I remember watching this game and thinking that the Raiders got out coached in that game by the biggest margin I'd ever seen in a SB but you're right, in the end it doesn't matter a hill of beans, the Bucs won.

Basically, Tampa had a good idea what play was being called before the snap.

it helps when you know every audible Gannon was calling out and have a good idea what play is being run based on the personnel in the huddle. the game was over before it started, Callahan pretty much ran the same plays, with the same terminology, that Gruden ran.
More awful coaching than a "sabotage", and it would explain the pick 6s. Much easier to jump a route when you know exactly where that route is going.

What matters to me is a coach making an inexplicable move two days before the game, having his very talented but mentally unstable center vanish the next day, and having two of the most respected players in the history of the game making this accusation. I don't know what I believe but if ever an owner could make a coach want to do that it'd be Al Davis. The logic? "Might as well make a FORTUNE and stick it to the oily old bastard in the process because he's gonna fire me anyway."
Just playing devil's advocate here.
