Former Raiders receiver Tim Brown has been highly critical of his former coach in Oakland, and current Cowboys offensive coordinator and offensive line coach, Bill Callahan in recent years, even going so far as to say the then-head coach “sabotaged” the Raiders’ chances in their Super Bowl XXXVII loss to the Buccaneers.
Considering, we were a bit surprised this week to hear that Dallas’ decision to let Callahan take over play-calling duties in 2013 earned Brown’s stamp of approval. But here we are.
“I know him as being a great play-caller when he is calling his own system,” Brown told SiriusXM NFL Radio, via the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t what he is going to be able to call and what he’s not going to be able to call here so from that standpoint, it can be too many cooks in the kitchen then you’ve got a problem. I think this guy when they looking at his calling record, he’s one of the best. Those four years he was with the Ravens, he gave all the runs. The six years he was with the Raiders, two years with (Jon) Gruden and two years by himself, he called all the runs. When he became the head coach, he called the passes too.
“I think from that standpoint, we had one of the best offenses in the league that year. They could do the same kind of offense with Romo as we did with (Rich) Gannon. If I was them, I would let him do it himself because I think he’s quite capable of getting that done.”
