    Re: WNST Reports Ray Lewis Will Retire After 2012 Season



    Ray Lewis is the greatest middle-linebacker and leader to ever play the game. I don't think his type of player will be seen again.

    The money difference alone makes it an easy decision.

    Agreed that it's time, but majorly agreed that it still knocks the wind out of my chest knowing I won't see #52 on that field after this season.

    Ray, your presence as a Raven will be missed. Defined this franchise for so long, and in an age where we end up supporting the laundry and not the players, we were lucky to have him here for his full 17 year career and witness so many great moments from him. A sad day for sure.

    As soon as I heard the news, I immediately went online and got my tickets.

    This will be my first Ravens game ever. I'm so filled with a swelling combination of excitement and bittersweetness.

    It's a good thing I don't have a valid passport, I'd be booking tickets and flights about now.

    Ray had a smirk after getting up.

    Well, when I was younger my parents never took me (games are expensive + logistical hassle for people who are not diehard fans). From 2007 to 2011 I went to college in Chicago, and for this past year I was living abroad in Turkey. Just returned to the States and I guess this is the best last chance you can get.

    LT might have struck fear into QB's, but Ray Lewis struck fear into any player that touched the ball and influenced the whole field, not to mention his leadership. From a games aspect Ray disrupted the entire field LT wreaked havoc when OT's still played with their hands on the ground. Go vote for Ray at the bottom of the espn page.*http://espn.go.com/

    Knew it was coming and it is indeed time for him to move on, but it definitely sucks to finally hear him say it. Just thinking about how a few weeks ago my dad and I were considering not picking up the playoff tickets because money has been tight. Those tickets are now priceless. It will be quite the experience to be there Sunday, to say the least.

    Never get in a fight with a pig; you both get muddy, and the pig likes it...

    Deion is going on record saying that Ray Lewis will re-assess in the offseason and IF Ray feels Ravens are close to SB, would likely come back, ala Brett Favre.

    In my opinion, Deion Sanders always claims he "knows" Ray and the Ravens...but is usually VERY far form the truth.

    “When I think of a Baltimore Raven - we go in there, we take your lunch box, we take your sandwich, we take your juice box, we take your applesauce, and we take your spork and we break it. And we leave you with an empty lunch. That’s the Baltimore Raven way.” - Steve Smith Sr.


    Call me a Special Teams coach again. I dare you! I double dare you, MFer!

    Somewhat like a close relative with a terminal illness - you know the end is coming, but you keep hoping against hope that the end never comes.

    Thanks for the memories Ray. Here is hoping you end up holding the Lombardi again!

    Make sure we appreciate his last game. 20 years from we will talk of him as the savior of Baltimore football, like a folk hero.
