No matter how many times the announcers and media try to get you to believe Ray Lewis is willing the Ravens to victory like he is a part of the Avengers, the truth is the Ravens will go as far as Joe Flacco takes them.
Flacco has been in the league for a while, has playoff wins every year he has been in the NFL and out-dueled Tom Brady last year (can’t blame him for the kicker missing and Lee Evans drop).
This comments from Ray are a bit condescending in my opinion.
“He grew up today,” Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis said. “I told him, ‘You’re the General, lead us to victory, you lead us today.’ I’m just here to facilitate things, just lead us. To look in his eyes, he had something different about him today and I just wanted to encourage him. I’ve always been a Joe Flacco fan and always will be, but to watch what he did today was probably one of the greatest things I’ll sit back and remember.”
I am under the belief Flacco won’t be that upset that Lewis is retiring.
