That's stupid. The fact that you lumped Sapp, who was also great, in tells me you just don't like mouthy black players.

Like another poster said, he makes more noise than what his play deserves.

The last 5-7 years, I would agree. Before that, I put him up there with Mike Singletary.

He is regarded as one of the best to ever play by those who stepped on the field against him every Sunday. I think their word and opinion is much more valuable then the OP.

I was a huge fan of "Neon Dieon, Prime Time Sanders" they don't get much more mouthy than that do they?

I've never seen him in this way. I've never been very impressed with his play. My thoughts are that he is a lot like Warren Sapp, famous for making a lot of damned noise.





1st ballot hall of famer respected by everyone in the nfl

30 interceptions and 40+ sacks in his career. Only player to ever do that

Agreed. I don't care how great he is, he is so annoying.

He's led the NFL in tackles a ridiculous amount of time and was on the best defense ever

super bowl year playoffs:
quote:

Lewis added 31 tackles, two interceptions, 9 pass deflections, one fumble recovery and a touchdown in the four-game playoff run.

Lewis is not the linebacker he was 5 years ago-- but he's still a highly productive guy, the sort that rounds out a quality linebacking corps, rather than defines it. The Ravens definitely do things now to disguise him when he has man coverage on TEs, and he has absolutely lost a step, but he is still the sort of 'cog' that a defense needs.

That said, I spent a decade underappreciating his actual contribution to the Ravens-- I watched them and thought 'Lewis isn't the thing that makes this defense work; it's Ed Reed'; then I watched the 2005 edition of the Ravens, when Lewis played only 6 games; the change was stark. It's the only time I've ever seen a football team that was a playoff contender drop off the face of the Earth-- how the Ravens got to 6-10 was probably the best coaching job of the Brian Billick Era- it was a team worthy of winning 3 games.

The next year, Ray plugged himself right back in, and while starting to show his age, they were a 13 win contender again. I begrudgingly tip my hat to the guy, one of the few difference-making guys on the defensive side of the ball that could make or break a franchise, in the last 35 years.
