"I think Butkus was the best at stopping the run, but Ray Lewis could stop the run or get back in to play pass defense," said former Baltimore Colts running back Tom Matte, who played against most of the top middle linebackers. "He had such speed and agility. There was none better."

I'd prefer to have Ray Lewis on my team than Tony Gonzales if I had to pick one out of a draft in their rookie seasons.

Agreed.

Ray Lewis was also a better overall football player than Gonzales.

Not so sure about this one.

I have NO prob with this. But DICK was a BEAST in ANY ERA. SURE IF Ray Lewis played in the 60's in the SHAPE he is now.... He would have been the most dominant force in NFL HISTORY.
