Pro Football Hall of Famers?

This year's semifinalist class for the Pro Football Hall of Fame has a bunch of players you can almost picture still playing. Derrick Brooks and Marvin Harrison highlight the first-year eligible candidates, with defensive stalwarts like Michael Strahan and John Lynch rounding out the returning class. Tony Dungy is on the ballot for the first time as well, joining Jimmy Johnson as the only coaches up for induction. Who should make it in?

Maybe Tim Brown is just a big Beastie Boys fan. Or maybe he's still stinging from the Raiders' loss to the Buccaneers in Super Bowl XXXVII. Either way, he's saying that game wasn't just a bad day for Oakland, it was "sabotage." Brown said Tuesday that then-Raiders coach Bill Callahan sabotaged the team by changing the game plan as a way to get back at the Raiders and help Jon Gruden. ESPN analyst Jerry Rice, who was also on that Raiders team, backed Brown up. So what do you think? Did Callahan intentionally blow the game plan, or was he just outcoached?
