[News] Ray Lewis Goes Out On Top

57 posts in this topic

Oooohhhhhh the pain Jim "hello super wealthy top 2% golf friends" Nantz must have felt having to be there to watch the Ravens celebrate. I laugh and point out with ridicule the media of which Nantz is a part, that despise Lewis and things, Ravens, that are associated with him. He and a number, ESPN, of media outlets don't want to see people of Ray's "ilk" to have success. It doesn't paint the Rockwell image that suits them so they despise "it." They promote Tebow and his "image" while ridiculing and hating those that don't care or try to aspire to the Tebow version of "it" that they prefer and have a bias over. They are the rule and the power base not the exception so now Nantz will have to go back to rooting for Phil "exxon Phil" Mickelson and supporting "it." Thanks for so many other reasons-like Skip Worthless.

"Imagine if we do the impossible" -- Ray Lewis (after the Denver game)

After 2 consecutive years of ending the season with the kind of heartbreaking losses that cause writers to create polls, asking "was this the most devastating loss in team history", it is nice to have a playoff run where we ask, "was this the sweetest championship in Baltimore history".

I witnessed the 70 WS, 70 SB, 83 WS, 2000 SB, so I am going to say it is the sweetest in my lifetime. I think only the 58 championship could rival it.

Ray.. the best leader in sports history. If not for Ray, this team wouldn't have handled last year AFC Champ loss better..

Cant wait to hear his locker room speech after the win and SoundFx for the goal line stand.

man finally, iv'e waited 12 years for this moment.. i was only 5 when we won super bowl 35... i became a ravens fan in 05 when i started playing football.. i remember sitting on my couch just flipping channels and stop in nbc when the ravens were playing the colts... we lost that game but i became a fan ever since that game... i liked the stadium.. the colors.. the fans.. i kept wondering why they kept talking about #52 and #20 lol.. ever since that time my heart has been broken with the 06 playoff lost to the colts.. then 08 to the steelers and last year to the pats... but if you think what this team has gone through this season youll be like wow thats amazing.. the death of Art and torrey's smith brother... all the injuries.. terrell suggs Achilles injury... ray lewis triceps... webb's torn ACL.. the 3 game losing streak (i hated that we lost at home vs the steelers without ben).. firing cam cameron after the redskins game... Ray lewis last home game and last

dance.... the mile high miracle.. getting sweet revenge on the pats.. and then finally winning that lombardi. i hope to get drafted by the ravens in a few years that would be a dream come true!

Some of the Ravens defensive teams were awesome during Rays career. Too bad we struggled for so many years trying to find a QB.

Been floating on air for the last many hours. Thanks, Ravens....what a night....never saw anything quite like it....told my offspring that they just witnessed a once-in-a-lifetime football season.....unbelievable....

Gotta admit that the entire experience....from the struggles during the season, to the incredible post-season, to all the vitriol and bias levied against the Ravens by talking-heads and writers made the whole thing a bit surreal at times....

Funny how much venom was spewed out, and how it ramped up as a function of how successful the Ravens became in the last several weeks....the last desperate gasps of the Ravens-haters.....I'm guessing Skippy B. is probably afraid to interview Sizzle at this point...

Ravens Nation deserves nothing but happiness.....when I hear the terrible things said from the TV Sports guys, to the general media, to the adversary fans on the countless blog sites, it confirms for me that Ravens Nation not only has the best fans in the business, but easily many of the best human beings too.....

And after all that heavy stuff said, I can only ask one more deadly serious question: Was that Chykie Brown who was making a confetti-angel on the field after the game last night?

Let me be the first to say, it ain't everyday that you get to see a confetti-angel....

Can't wait for next season.....will be taking the purple collar off my black lab here in a couple of weeks and putting the orange one on her.....

Thanks #52...

I'm so happy for Ray and this team. Thank you for your dedication, hard work, determination, leadership, and straight up baillin' for the last 17 years. You have accomplished what you set out to accomplish. You are the GOAT of Middle Linebackers. And you walk away on top. Couldn't have scripted this any better. Although Goodell thought he could with a comeback.

We had the hardest path to the Super Bowl, and Ray knew what he was doing when he announced his retirement. This game was won by the better team despite the whining 49er fans. This wasn't a pittsburgh type game smeared with questionable calls, and horrific officiating. This was earned, and led by Flacco who played out of his mind. Make no mistake, we beat the best teams to get there, and beat a very tough team for the hardware. Ray turned over the keys to Flacco, and he responded....Congrats to the most deserving team that has been so close for four years. Mission accomplished!!!

I salute Ray Lewis for his many years of record setting defensive play. I wish him well in his future endeavors. And I want to say I don't believe his leaving will affect this team in a negative way. There are many stellar players on this team and I believe the future is bright. This organization has a way of getting good players and bringing out their best. It's all about the team.

At the bar where I watched the game they gave out raffle ticket stubs for various giveaways. I felt quite honored as the last two digits on my stub were 52. I didn't even pay attention to whether I won any of the door prizes, the ticket stub makes a better keepsake.

Such a cinderella story! Well done #52! Also really happy to see players like sizzle, reed and rice win the Lombardi! Very well deserved! What a way to silence the critics!

I have read close to a dozen articles in the last 28hour on Rays last ride and outstanding career. It's a shame that not one of these so called sports writers couldn't write an article on Ray's 17 year career without bringing up the Atlanta charges or this BS story from SI that has already been detemined to be a publicity stund by the owners of the product. They should all be ashamed!

Ray, thank you for 17 fantastic years and two Superbowl Championships. The leadership you have shown as a RAVEN will always be a part of this teams history. Your journey to the HOF is well deserved as one of the greatest players to ever take the field.

Congradulations RAVENS, your the GREATEST!

@caw710 These so called reporters (as I call them opinion writers) have more access than we do and cannot report the truth of the matter that the 2 other men who were actually being charged with the murders were acquitted on self defense.

But, the nay sayers all chime in, they never found the suit which must have been soaked in the blood of the two victims! Witness testimony proved that the group that contained the two slain men confronted Lewis and his smaller group and struck one of the defendants with a champagne bottle, which in turn started the melee and shots were fired at the fleeing limo.

Maybe I'm in the wrong business or maybe the media doesn't report facts anymore.
