He says it now, but I really think it depends on how well they do in the playoffs.

I think right now, Steelers fans are feeling the same way ratbird fans felt when Hines Ward announced his retirement last season.

I think they're just trying to combat the Colt's ChuckStrong momentum

So far my favorite Facebook post on his retirement is: "'At least we still have Joe Flacco' -said no one ever"

PostSubject: Ray Lewis retires after this season   Thu Jan 03, 2013 2:11 am

This should probably be posted on the NFL board, but I thought this was big news and it does affect the Steelers (makes he Ravens D even less effective)

Anyway.....he's leaving the Ravens. In all honesty, he is one hell of a football player and possibly one of the greatest linebackers of all time.

See ya Ray Ray......This fan tips her hat to you.. (Do ya'll think we may see him on the Home Shopping Network selling knives with that other dude now??? Sorry.....couldn't resist one last "stab" HAHAHAH OMG I'm cracking myself up!!!




Next football season, Ray Lewis will be on the sideline, perhaps saving up his pregame speeches — motivational, to be sure, but sometimes indecipherable in their ferocity — for his son’s first season at the University of Miami.

It is almost impossible to imagine the N.F.L. without Lewis, without the eyeblack streaked across his face, without his wild dances as he emerged from the stadium tunnel, without his punishing hits

He'll probably take a stab as a studio analyst.

Isn't Ed Reed getting close to retirement too?

Nice article. I feel confident in saying that when Ben retires there will be plenty of mentions about the rape allegations against him and very little said about his charity work, or how he re-imaged himself.

LEWIS: Absolutely. I won’t do anything else. I wouldn’t even consider it. No way. When you’re embraced and a city loves me the way this city loves me … everybody knows it’s my city. The Lord granted me this city. “You will be put here, you will serve here, build up this community, make sure they have something they never witnessed in their life—someone who will give everything up for hope, faith, love.” The people here adore me, and I adore them.

Whoa..........humble dude, isn't he? I mean, he walks on Baltimore's waters, doesn't he? I'm sorry, can't agree that he is the "greatest" of all time. I'll take Mean Joe anyday. Mean Joe had "it" PLUS class (something Lewis sorely lacks).

NOW I know what ray ray will be doing in the offseason. He'll be out with OJ trying to find his mysteriously vanished white suit he was wearing the night of the murders and trying to find the real killers.

Yeah exactly, he's so humble he didn't even wait until the season was over to announce his retirement. He just couldn't have the media focus on their team. He had to be in the spotlight.

Hopefully when they play a real team this weekend it will be his last game and we won't have to hear it no more.

Careful, Jon. Don't ever repeat Ray Lewis' name like that while looking into a mirror. He'll appear behind you and stab you to death.
