Well, that didn’t take long. Only a few days after Tim Brown referred to Bill Callahan’s change of game plan mere days before the Chucky Bowl as “sabotage” he’s done a complete reversal saying he never said it was “sabotage” even though he’s quoted as saying it was “sabotage”.
If that makes no sense then be on the lookout for replays of his interview this morning with Dan Patrick in which Brown says he never called it “sabotage”.
So, which is it Tim?
I always have, always will have Brown’s back when it comes to defending his should-be Hall of Fame career. Without question he is one of the greatest to ever play the game and his accomplishments reflect that. More importantly he’s one of the best to ever suit up for the Silver and Black.
However, as I claimed yesterday, this appears as nothing more than Brown trying to grab headlines in an attempt to get a foot in the door as broadcaster for some network looking for former players willing to set off fireworks. How Brown can one moment use the term “sabotage” then turn around and say he never said it was “sabotage” is a weak stance that softens his claim. It also screams of someone who has officially entered damage control mode.
Brown’s official stance now is that Callahan “didn’t throw the Super Bowl”.
Now one claim Brown didn’t back off was that Callahan’s sudden change had a direct affect on Barrett Robbins. As we all know Robbins had a bipolar episode that sabotaged the Super Bowl for himself and certainly didn’t help his team at all. So in a sense Brown is still saying Callahan “sabotaged” the Super Bowl even though he didn’t say “sabotage”.
Got that? Good, because this is where this story ends. Thanks for nothing, Tim.
