be dissected By the time they take the field Sunday America will know everything about Oaklands storied past and Tampa Bays sorry one For 19 years the Raiders have tried to get back to the title game

needed pro viding the impetus for this Super Bowl run with his hardcharging style something the Bucs obvi ously lacked while falling flat in the playoffs under Tony Dungy If he would tell me to jump off the Walt Whit man Sapp said following the NFC cham pionship victory in Philadelphia I would jump When Gruden jumped ship Callahan whom lie hired moved from the supporting cast to a starring role
