Always look forward to your articles. They always seem to put things in prospective when we as fans are down and give a much needed moral boost as well. Your glimpses into the locker room are awesome. You hear all the time about Ray's bond with the team but its awesome to get a first hand glimpse. Ray has transcended all facets of the game and I look forward to watching him on MNF if thats what he chooses to do.

G0 RAVENS! This one is not only for Ray but the man that made bringing Ray to Baltimore possible... ART!

If its not Ray Lewis, Ravens wouldnt have handled the last year AFC champ loss properly. His speech after the team was amazing and he is a true natural born leader.

Ray Lewis is one of a kind and a true king. Been an absolute pleasure to watch, listen, and have him represent this team and city. Great article.

One day, Ray's legacy will just be a mere memory.

And I know every one of us Ravens fan will cherish every chance we got to watch this legend play. From the Darren Sproles hit in the backfield or the Dustin Keller hit he laid in NY to end the game.. those aren't just two plays, those 2 plays define what it means to have heart and commitment not only to the game, but to the other 52 men around him.

Thanks for the memories Ray. One love.

I hope Ray trains his young one to become a legend. I really want another Ray Lewis in Baltimore in a few years!

Thank you Kevin. That article was a gift. Once again I am reminded how blessed I am to be a Baltimorian and to have the special access we have had to this living legend. I have cried every day since the news...Sometimes for sadness, sometimes for pride, sometimes for gratitude. Those of us who are blessed enough to be in the stands on Sunday will never forget how lucky we were to share the moment with each other and our with ourteam. Now if you'll excuse me...I have a poster to make.

Emotions are high for everyone I think.
It's sad to see Ray leave the game. He has been the face of this team since he got here and it will never be the same without him here. We'll move on, it's what we do but we'll never forget #52, Ray Lewis.
The good thing about all this is, he has rubbed off on every player he's been in contact with so in a way, we'll always have a part of Ray in our team.
I also believe he should get his own statue in front of M&T!

I keep thinking of the sound bite of Ray to Harbs...."I will NEVER quit on you" That sums up Ray's approach in many ways. Here he is talking to a relatively new coach, and he shows him that kind of respect. It's the same with all the new guys through all these years. If people in leadership positions want to learn how to lead, Ray wrote the book. In my opinion he is the best player to ever play period. Show me a player who impacted the league, and it's players and coaches as much as Lewis......you can't cause there isn't.
