With the recent comments from former Raiders wide receiver Tim Brown that his former head coach Bill Callahan sabotaged Super Bowl XXXVIII, some of the Buccaneers’ players from their championship team sounded off. Of course former Bucs’ defensive tackle Warren Sapp and former wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson  had something to say. “You’re telling me (Callahan) threw it, Super Bowl, everything on the line?” Warren Sapp said, loudly, over the phone. “That’s like being at 25,000 on Mount Everest, and you only got 4,000 feet left, crisp, clear, top of the mountain in sight, and you just go, ‘Nah, I think I’ll just lay here a while.’ ” “We killed them,” Keyshawn Johnson said to Brooks. “We kicked their (butts). You did your job, I did my job, we all did, and we beat them all day and night and let’s just leave it at that.” Former Buccaneers linebacker Derrick Brooks chimed in. “Obviously, Tim and Jerry, they had problems with Bill,” Brooks said. “And our game kind of got tied in with that. I don’t know what their problems were, but the tape of that game speaks for itself — loudly. “To think you would automatically beat us with a few more rushing attempts, that I’m not buying. A few more rushing attempts with Charlie (Garner) and Tyrone (Wheatley) — really?” “Who was going to move me?” Sapp said. “Who in the hell was going to move me?” Even Tony Dungy who no longer was coaching the Bucs at the time had something to say. “I’ve never heard of anything like that ever happening. I guess, if I really felt that way, sabotage, could I really hold it in for 10 years?” Sapp had more to add. “It was the third horizontal West Coast offense we’d faced,” Sapp said. “I was faster than Tim Brown and damn near as fast at Jerry Rice.” Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
