      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

Ray Lewis!

57 posts in this topic

Ray Lewis is simply the greatest football player ever. At 37 yrs old, he had 17 tackles and led a team to an emotional/physical defeat of the number 1 seed. If there was an all-time draft, there is no doubt that I would draft ray number 1 overall! Call me biased, I don't care, on to the AFC Championship!

i really dont want him to retire and never did. even getting older he plays above average and i think his presence makes others play better. I WANT to believe he has another good season left in his tank but when we win the superbowl i feel that is the appropriate time for him to retire.

Seriously. The man had 17 tackles. That is beyond ridiculous.

I wish, but no.
I would be embarrassed if he got all Favere on us.

He seems like the kind of guy his word is his word.
I cant see him doing that to his kids either.

Yeah, the "ha" was to signify I was kidding.

Get the ring and ride off, Ray!

What a freaking player, man. I honestly feel that without Ray Lewis, we wouldn't have made it out of today's game as successful as we were on defense. We held Peyton Manning to 21 points. He helped us get off the field when our offense was sort of dozing off at one point which I attribute all to his unmatched leadership. The defensive intensity that was missing while he was gone has been absolutely amazing the past 2 weeks. I'm gonna miss him.

Ray Lewis is just an awesome individual. I have the utmost respect for him as a player, a motivator, and a person. I wish he played alongside Cushing on my team (Texans).

He should be remembered as one of the greatest to ever play the game.

Congrats on your victory against the Broncos today. Well done!

Hope to see you guys in the AFC championship.

He is the GOAT. Undeniable. There has never been a MLB as good as him. There have been greats, but no Ray Lewis. Add in the fact that I believe him when he says he could go on a few more years and I think he could play at a high level. I think he is giving everything he has on the field, even more than before. He's risking his body now because he knows this is it.

He needs to cap it off with a ring, and he has a focus I've never seen. I think this is our year.

I love Ray Lewis. The man is a colossus on the football field and he is a natural born leader of men. It's going to be a really sad day for me, and for the Ravens, when Ray retires. Let's just hope his retirement is delayed until after the Superbowl. If he could retire with 2 Superbowl rings it would be a fairytale ending to a Hall of Fame career.

Apparently Peyton waited until after Ray was finished with his press rounds to congratulate him personally and tell him how much he's enjoyed playing against him.

Just thought it was a nice moment between NFL royalty. Interesting that Ray gets his first ever playoff win against Manning in his last ever game against him.

Thought this was a neat article on Ray's journey from the Atlanta incident to the point he is at now.

That picture sums it up. I think the respect the two of them have for each other is obvious. I'm happy for us that we finally got the money off our back.

I wonder what they said to each other. Man.
