Ravens Linebacker Ray Lewis Out For The Season

Posted 10/16/2012 5:30 am by

After 17 years in the NFL at the middle linebacker position, Ray Lewis has undoubtedly lost a step.  However, don’t tell his opponents that.  What Ray was missing in speed, he made up for in smarts, and was a quarterback for the vaunted Baltimore Ravens defense.  They have been, during Lewis’s tenure, one of the most tenacious, face-smashingest defenses in the NFL, year in and year out, and in that time Lewis has gone from a relatively anonymous (for a football star) defense player to one of the most recognizable faces in the NFL.  However, his career looks as though it might be over.  Ray Lewis is out for the season with a torn triceps, and the talk is he may retire rather than return to the league.

”Ray in the locker room afterward, we didn’t know (the extent of the injury) but he was worried about it.  ‘He said some things about his faith.  He said some things that I’ll never forget,” said Ravens coach John Harbaugh.  ”I’m disappointed for those guys,” Harbaugh said of his team.  ”It doesn’t matter how I or someone else feels about it.  It’s their thing.  These are guys that put so much effort, heart and soul into what they do.”

To their credit, despite giving up a franchise record 227 rushing yards to the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday’s game, the Ravens won 31-29. Still without Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, and with plenty of other injuries on their defensive side, it remains to be seen if Baltimore’s offense can keep up the pace needed to keep the team’s 5-1 record looking that stellar.  That’s going to be a tall order; it’s not every week your team loses a 13-time Pro Bowl player.

If You Eat At Wendy’s, You Were Probably Hacked

Of the major fast food chains in the United States, my favorite is probably Wendy’s.  I’m not sure why.  My mom loves the Frosty.  I think the reason why I like Wendy’s, though, is because of the chili.  I love chili, and I don’t always want to make it for myself or open a can […]

The NBA has worked hard to get its drug issues under control.  Back in the 1970’s and 1980’s, cocaine abuse was rampant.  These days, the only drugs being used are probably pot and other small-time recreational relaxants and nothing quite so serious or potentially deadly.  (They may also be using PEDs, but there’s no telling […]
