Tim Brown backtracking....

Former Raiders star Tim Brown tried to backtrack from the word "sabotage" on Wednesday in a radio interview with "The Dan Patrick Show."

Brown and Jerry Rice both said recently that they believe then-Raiders coach Bill Callahan undermined the team in the Super Bowl in 2003 because of his friendship with Tampa Bay coach Jon Gruden by altering the game plan two days before Oakland's 48-21 loss.

"I have never said that he sabotaged the game," Brown said Wednesday. "All I was saying after the game was, you know, the question was asked about this situation, but no one ever said -- and I said on the radio show Saturday night -- that's something that could never be proven.

"We can't go inside the mind of Bill Callahan. ... All I'm saying is, the question was asked. But of course the media hears 'sabotage' and 'Bill Callahan' and 'throwing the football game,' now they're saying 'throwing the football game,' and that terminology was never used."
