So Rice is a B#$h too? Is Callahan going to sue everyone? Nah, He aint suing anyone. Did Roger Clemens sue anyone and win ANYTHING for someone making him look bad?
Honestly as bad as we played I wouldn't be suprised if Callahan GAVE GRUDEN our first 15 scripted plays. (Now that's a conspiracy theory.) I've heard football players say that in all their years THEY'VE never had their gameplan changed on Friday.
We had a lot going against us. Gruden was in there heads, 1 week to prepare before superbowl instead of two, Barrett Robbins AWOL etc.
and if we had, in the BIGGEST GAME of the Raiders history since their last superbowl in the 80s, a change at the 11th hour for anything OTHER Robbins going AWOL that's a PROBLEM.
Crockett said plainly Robbins not Gannon called the plays and protections when he was running plays. Robbins was replaced by a LONG SNAPPER. That was a hit to the pysche.
I'd be mad if I were Brown honestly. The ONE SHOT he had to get a ring and THAT happened? I'm pretty sure I remembered Al asking WHY DIDN'T WE RUN THE BALL against them after the game, can't find an article but that might be just be hindsight 20/20 in effect on his part.
