Lewis should be the last guy criticizing people. Everything about the guy is fake.

Obviously the tuck rule sucked, I'm sure Patriots fans would hate it if it happened against them too. But how is that Bradys fault? Blame the refs that day.

Blame the rule book. The refs made the right call regarding a bad rule.

Funny thing is that the rule was first used against us during a Jets game in the 2001 regular season no less. Laughing I love how mr historian Ray Lewis fails to mention that.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuck_rule

Quote:
Jets vs. Patriots (2001)
The tuck rule was called in Week 2 of an NFL regular season match-up on September 23, 2001, between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets.[3] In the waning minutes of the second quarter, Patriots' defensive end Anthony Pleasant apparently forced Jets quarterback Vinny Testaverde to fumble the ball. Patriots' defensive end Richard Seymour made a recovery.[4] The call was overturned upon review and ruled an incomplete with the tuck rule cited. The Jets would go on to tie the game with a field goal on that drive and then eventually win in overtime.

In the aftermath of the Tuck Rule Game, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick referred to this game, telling ESPN, "I knew what the ruling should have been because we had dealt with that play a little bit earlier in the year on the other side of it."[5]

Why would anyone blame the refs for correctly enforcing that rule?

If anything, we blame them for missing the blatant roughing the passer on that play which - if correctly called - would have made the Tuck Rule completely moot.

The issue with Ray Lewis here isnt that he drudged up " The Tuck Rule", it's that he credited an entire legacy to single call. I mean, it's not like Tom Brady went on to win 18 more playoff games after that one play.

He's the LAST person in the world that should be crediting a legacy to one call. It would be like someone saying Ray Lewis is the product of "The Acquittal"
