The game is losing one of the greatest defenders of all-time. It will be hard imagining watching Baltimore in the future knowing he will never take the field for them again.

As others have said, as a football fan, I'll miss seeing the fire-snorting #52 line-up on Sundays, but as a fan of a division rival, the best compliment I can pay Ray, is to say I'm glad he's hanging them up.

All we need now is for #20 to retire, and we'll all stand a better chance of beating the Ravens...... I don't know if that'll be the case, but it will sure feel that way.......

Can't wait until he's got a desk job, sitting across from Steve Young and Trent Dilfer, and Dilf talks about when he won a Superbowl.

Gonna get an amazing crazy eyes Ray Ray rant when that happens.

this needs to happen...he can have Michael Irvin's job. or Maybe Deion Sanders. and as much as I hate to say it...Ladanian Tomlinson's...from what I have seen he is terrible.

Ray lewis on NFL network would be fantastic however.


He should replace all three of them.

I don't follow any players other than the Packers. That being said- I've always had a soft spot and an admiration for Mr. Ray Lewis. I admire that amount of passion and dedication.

Edit: If the Pack doesn't make/win the SB, I'd be a nice story for Ray to go out on top.

Smart by Lewis, he will be making great money as an analyst. He will surely get a deal somewhere immediately. truly one of the best players that i got to witness as a got into football in the late 90s.

He should replace Heath Evans and Darren Sharper. Both are utterly clueless, and so focused on getting themselves over as 'personalities' that they forget they're supposed to have football opinions worth hearing.

He wants to watch and help his son while he's playing football at the U. That will be what he's doing for the next few years, when RLIII goes on from that, then he'll probably take a job as an analyst, and I'd pay money to see it.

NFLN is wondering if he is going to pull a Favre. You know-retire then pop-up on a division rival a year or two later.


Hmmm...Ray in a Steelers uniform. Think

Wouldn't mind if he had a year at the Jets either, providing it wasn't like Favre's.

No way that happens. Ray wouldnt do that to Baltimore. Plus why would he leave? He is the best LB they have.

I dunno, something tells me Ray loves Baltimore too much for him to leave. Although I am pretty sire the same thing could have been said for a certain someone who I will not name and the Packers.

Ray on NFLN would be amazing and I can only imagine what his interactions with someone crazy like Michael Irvin would be.

Ray is the LAST person to pull a Brett Favre. He's said countless times again once he retires he's done from football. That's it. He said God told him to retire. And he's pretty religious so... Besides he promised to see Ray Lewis III (RL3?) play at the U.
