Final home game for Reed? Deion not convinced Ray’s done. Cap effects. Could timing backfire?

Very rarely is there an individual who when speaks make you want to go and knock someone out. He's the heart of the team. True inspiration and will be missed.

I see no reason for there not to be a Ray Lewis statue being erected somewhere around M&T.

How amazing this thing called "sports" is. One little game could produce a world changing individual. More than just football, 52 taught me about life and the kind of life a man should lead. A life filled with dedication, hard work, love, and perseverance. Sunday will be an emotional ride for me. Let's send him off strong Charm City.

right out front!!! i say move the Johnny U statue inside the stadium and put it in a nice protective case with a plaque to preserve the memories of the "old" era of football in the city of baltimore and then put a statue of Ray Lewis out front to represent the "new" era of baltimore football!

There will be a Ray Lewis statue somewhere near one of M&T's gates, Steve Bisciotti and the city will see to that!

He is to the Ravens what Brooks, Eddie, Cal meant to the Os and definitely what Johnny U meant to the "real" Colts! It's just a matter of when!

~ ~ ~

Deion says this is not Ray's "swan song"! I disagree!

Ray Lewis has decided to walk away as a shining star that other players can take as inspiration! His body of work is larger than any accolades another Super Bowl would bring to him!

There's never been a player that affected so many men through out the NFL and so many fans of the city they played for - AND THERE WILL NEVER BE ANOTHER!!!

Thanks for all you've sacrificed over your 17 year career Ray, now get that trophy and go enjoy being a father!!!

I wonder how Ray's announcement and the way the league is reacting will affect Ed Reed's career going forward! The news hit the Ravens' locker room and the NFL like a thunderbolt!

No doubt, if Ed was contemplating retiring this year, Ray took away his thunder!

"Tremendous player, tremendous career. He's had a great career, he's a great player." - Bill Belichick


For once in your life, Billy...please open up and say something that carries a little weight. We're talking about the greatest defensive player in the history of the game, and you basically sum it up with your stupid, disingenuous cliches.

And why even bother posting anything this guys says? He says nothing. You may as well put a blank space with quotes for this idiot.

Ol' Billy boy probably ended that statement with: "He gave it 110%".

"The Ravens should just put Lewis in the Ring of Honor on Sunday, which is likely his final game in Baltimore. "

Hold on Hensley. Final game in Baltimore? Do you mean, we will lose against Indy?

I disagree. The greatest MLB of all time deserves to stand right next to the greatest QB of all time.
