Quick Thought: Ray Lewis needs to go out with a bang

If  Ray Lewis want’s to become the greatest defensive player in the history of  the NFL,  he will no doubt have to go out with a bang.     This  means his team will have to do more than just beat the Patriots on Sunday.    He will also have to help lead his team to victory in the Super-Bowl (if they can defeat New England, that is).   It’s not easy.     Of course it isn’t, it’s not suppose to be.    It’s the NFL Playoffs, there aren’t any bad teams here.    Baltimore certainly isn’t one of  them,  and behind Lewis’s knowledge and leadership,  the Ravens are here once again.      And they don’t want to fall short again.  It’s been the  usual for Baltimore.    Ray  Lewis won’t stand for it, nor should he.    If  he doesn’t do something, he won’t go out with a bang.    After all, the career he’s had.. it would only  seem appropriate .     The only thing is, I just don’t buy into the “destined” story-line, although the Ravens’ have made it hard to not believe in that.       But  we all know New England,  and if anything,  Ray Lewis will need to go out with a bang.     Baltimore will need another victory, even if they beat the Patriots.    Ray Lewis’s career suggests he needs to go out with a bang.   And why not?

Especially after the career he’s had.     Oh, and by the way, in case you hadn’t noticed, it’s been one heck of a career.
