Bill Callahan isn't taking accusations of sabotaging Super Bowl XXXVII lying down. A day after former Oakland receiver Jerry Rice agreed with statements made by ex-teammate Tim Brown that their coach may have purposely hurt the Raiders' chances to win the NFL title 10 years ago, Callahan released a strongly worded statement of his own. Not only does Callahan vehemently deny the allegations, he calls them "defamatory" and asks for an immediate retraction....

Tim Brown only played in one Super Bowl during his 17-year career. And that was a game you'd think he'd want to forget, when his Oakland Raiders were routed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 48-21, in Super Bowl XXXVII. But 10 years later, not only is the nine-time Pro Bowl receiver still thinking about that game, he's making comments that are sure to have everyone else talking about it all over again. In comments made Saturday on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Brown suggested that then-coach Bill Callahan may have been trying "sabotage" the Super Bowl when he changed the game plan on the Friday before the game.  Callahan was in his first year as head coach of the Raiders after four years as an assistant of Jon Gruden, who had taken over the same position with the Buccaneers that season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneer receiver Keyshawn Johnson hit the ground Monday with his mouth running. He may not yet be loosened up for Super Bowl XXXVII, but all it took to loosen his tongue up was to ask him if he is a selfish player. "I don't need to answer selfish questions for people," he said. "If they have covered an athlete at a high level, then they know what's important to that athlete. For me, statistics aren't important. I'm always going to get numbers. "You can look at an Andre Reed.

Forget 90210. In the hours leading up to Super Bowl XXXVII Sunday, the nation's most prestigious address was an 18-acre expanse of the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot. There, 7,000 of corporate America's most prestigious guests gathered in the 22 air-conditioned tents of the NFL's hospitality village for a final round of elite parties before kickoff of America's ultimate sporting event. "It doesn't get any better than this," said Lynn Thompson, a Springfield, Mo.

Jack was 5 feet and one-half inch tall -- which may explain why his career consisted of two carries in one game."

Brian Schmitz in the Orlando Sentinel, on San Diego as host city for the Super Bowl: "As far as I'm concerned , the league could make this the permanent site. But then we couldn't go to Detroit and freeze, could we? "Oh, yes. A Super Bowl in Detroit. In 2006. "The next two SBs will be played in Houston (2004) and Jacksonville (2005), hardly glamorous garden spots. Fargo and Topeka are also making bids."

SAN DIEGO -- Michael Pittman said he has a good idea how history will judge his accomplishments. "Nobody's going to talk about what I did at all, not with the way the defense played or the fact I didn't score a touchdown," Pittman, the Buccaneer running back, said Sunday after Tampa Bay defeated Oakland, 48-21, in Super Bowl XXXVII. "It's OK. I'm glad. I'll remember. This was a dream for me."

Despite a lack of drama, 137,652,000 viewers watched all or part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 48-21 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, making it the second-most-watched Super Bowl game. Only the 1996 Super Bowl attracted more viewers, 138,500,000. In that game, televised by NBC, the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, 27-17, at Tempe, Ariz., for their third Super Bowl victory in four seasons.

Perhaps no receiver in NFL history has run such an arduous route to get to a Super Bowl as has Tim Brown. It wasn't only the 15 years he has been in the league, or the knee injury that limited his second season to one game. It was also his rocky relationship with Oakland Raider owner Al Davis after Brown took Marcus Allen's side in Allen's long-running feud with Davis.

Over the years, Super Bowls have produced one recurring phenomenon: the unanticipated blowout. And it always happens for the same reason: The team that falls behind, realizing that it isn't quite good enough, tends to lose heart, as the Raiders did Sunday, understanding that the big dream of a championship isn't going to happen.
