Your favorite Ray Lewis moment

80 posts in this topic

What's been your favourite moment of the illustrious career the general has had?

Many stand out.

The interception against the titans on the Super Bowl run.
The sideline tackle of tiki in the Super Bowl.
The fourth down stop to seal the game in San Diego.
The hit on hall of the titans on the sideline de helmeting him.
The dustin Keller hit.

Pick one and try to post a video of it. May not even be a play, but a speech or anything.

Without a doubt the INT @ TEN.
We might have not even made the SB without that play

Gotta be the interception against Tennessee. He stole Eddie George's heart, and won the game. That play was pure willpower.

I think my favorite moment has to be one that happened when I was 5, and I didnt actually see or know about. I went back and watched it after I became a Ravens fan. But that moment was the 26th Overall Pick of the 1996 NFL Draft.

So many to choose from, especially early on from his career while he was on his prime and the league's rules were far more lenient.

Lewis owning Eddie George in 2000 is probably my favorite. Among my favs is the vicious hit he landed on Ochocinco in 2009 knocking his helmet 50 ft down the field. Illegal? Sure. But so satisfying.

The Dustin Keller hit, The Ochocinco hit, The stop on 4th down against the Chargers, the pick 6 against TEN, and i could go on. Its a cop-out i know, but i can't name just one. They were all amazing. We were truly blessed to watch him for 17 years.

Without a doubt the Ochostinko hit. I really disliked that guy and it was well worth the 15 yard penalty and the loss. One of the best hits I have ever seen.

Anyone remember the hit on chad Johnson in the ez. I think cinci scored. But he flattened him of the ball. Dazed him and gets up and says something along the lines of I accidentally ran into ray.

Hilarious.The hit's at 0:46 below and he and Chad talk about about it at the Pro Bowl till around 1:53.

Another hit I'll never forget was him blasting Tony Richardson at least three yards back in the MNF opener back in 2010. I don't think I've ever seen a LB take on a FB with so much force.

There are three pretty random plays or moments I think off, when I think about Ray Lewis

First. Simple tackle on a runningback. I don't even know which game it was, but the way he tackled the rb. He looked like a tiger, bringing down one of his prey. I was like this man is a BEAST.

Second. In 2003 when he had 6 int's. I just started watching football and wasn't a fan of a particulair team yet. I was watching a Ravens game at a sportsbar and I was talking to a friend during plays and on the next play Ray picked off a pass and sprinted along the sideline. I looked in awe turned to my friend and said: "He is really good" and my friend just smiled and said: "Ray Lewis? He is the best" I became a Ravensfan then and there.

Third. When the Ravens won the Dallas game in I think it was 2008. The last game in Texas stadium. After the game Ray screamed. "TURN THE LIGHTS OUT IN THE MF"

Love the NFL Films music, camera angles, and Harry Kalas' voice.

Check at the 2:04 mark.

i think as far as plays are concerned, i have to go with the interception. there are just so many factors of why it's a great play; the titans were coming off a superbowl appearance and were favoured to win it all in 2000, they were at home, their crowd was serenading the ravens with boos because of comments by brian billick after the previous game, trent dilfer's playbook had gone missing after that game and coincidentally the titans seemed to have an edge on the ravens in this game. then ray intercepts steve mcnair, makes a housecall, and tells 70,000 stunned fans to shush as he ends their season, on route to the superbowl. classic ray lewis.

a lot of my favourite ray moments are of him on the sidelines, motivating his team with his heart and his words. the man's leadership is legendary and i think years from now when people talk about the greatest leaders in not only football, but in the history of professional sports, you're going to hear his name at the very beginning of the conversation.
