Since he was probably this week, doesn't logic dictate there's a huge chance he can play this week? Why would they activate him if he wasn't cleared?

Ray will play. Even if he's only 70%, I think he'll play. He knows the importance of this game, and if you don't get past this one, there won't be a next week anyways. So I think he'll play.

On a side note, after watching the conference, it must be a Harbaugh trait to wear the same clothes every day. Jim with the black shirt and khakis. Now John with the grey sweatshirt and black polo. ;D

If Ray is only 70% he shouldn't play. Our backers have been looking pretty good lately. We don't need to take a step backwards. He should only play if he gives us the best chance to win. I guess only the coaches and Ray will know when the time is right. Hope they make the right decision for the right reasons.

But what if you knew, which obviously no one does..not even them..if having Ray Lewis in the ballgame would ultimately help you win the game. Even if he's at 60%-70%, wouldn't you put him in there? That's a hypothetical of course, because even a 100% Ray Lewis might not even help you win the game, but his presence would certainly help something.

If Ray Lewis was in his prime I would put him in at 50%. His leadership, experience, and heart means a lot but he doesn't have the athletic chops of the players that have replaced him. It is a tough decision.

I wouldn't play him unless he was at least 90% healthy, but I'm not the Coach. I just want the Ravens team that beat up on the Giants to show up for the next four games.

At %70 is better than the other linebackers.Don't get me wrong Ellerbe can be good learning from Ray & if he can stay healthy.In the Denver & Redskins games guys was out of position..With Ray there,he knows where everyone suppose to line up at.Playing against Brady & Manning,you're going to need guys to lineup correct.Maybe his physical have diminish but his knowledge never left.He will line you up,it's up to you to make the play.You'll have think twice coming across the middle..

One last hurrah for Mustafa, but then it's time to move on Ravens. Ray's not going to get any better and his salary is too huge for his diminishing production and increasing risk of injuries. Don't flame me for stating the truth fellow fans, I love RayLew just as much as the rest of you, but time waits for no man. Not even Ray.

Well, I want Ray Lewis to come back for the playoffs. I cannot wait to see how good we can be with Ray and Ellerbe at ILB, and Suggs and Kruger at OLB, with Ngata, Jones and McPhee on the inside....

I want to see Ray in the game. The General needs to be in there if the docs clear him. Perhaps rotating him in and out of plays to see how things go. Our linebacker core is getting healthy and Dannelle Ellerbe is a beast!!

I definately want to see Ray play this Sunday and through to the SB.
If he's cleared to play and has practiced solid all week then by all means, get him out there and let Ellerby just spell him off and on.

This is Ray's year and he HAS to go to the SB to finish his career.
You can't hold him out of it, regardless of whether or not you think a younger player can run faster and jump higher. Ray is our MLB and a motivated Ray is worth 3 young guys in this situation.
Even in his declining years, if there were a time you could depend on him to be a star, now would be it.
GO RAY!!!

It's no secret, this will be Ray's last hurrah. Start him @ least. The city of Baltimore and the game deserves it. Otherwise, why did you activate him Hardboil?
