Don’t let the title fool you, Ray Lewis isn’t a zebra killer, atleast not that we know of. But his recent comments towards the referees of yesterday’s game have sparked some arguments. After multiple “roughing the passer calls”, if you can even call them that, went against Baltimore, Ray Lewis made some comments intended to make aware of the situation that has been heating up this season.
“It’s embarrassing,” he said. “They [the quarterbacks] even know it,” Lewis said. ” ‘If you get close to me, I can look for a penalty.’ Did that win or lose the game? No, but it damned sure helped them score 14 points.”
“People work too hard for that,” Lewis said, “and the embarrassing part about it is you see it constantly, constantly every week. … Every man puts his pants on the same way. I’ve got kids just like Brady has kids. Everybody has kids. Treat it with some respect.”
“It’s embarrassing to even keep the momentum going like that when we go three and out and then we stop them and then you look back and see a flag for a personal foul and Tom Brady is laughing. It wasn’t no personal foul if he’s still smiling.”
“I just look at it as a great game with two great teams going at it out there,” Lewis said. “Let the players go out there and decide the game.”
But Lewis wasn’t the only Ravens’ defender feeling the same way, both Ed Reed and Terrell Suggs chipped in their thoughts on the refs’ calls.
“Maybe next year it’ll be two-hand touch to get a sack,” Suggs said during the post-game news conference.
“This ain’t touch football,” added safety Ed Reed. “This ain’t tag.”
As for possible fines for Ray Lewis or any of these guys, that is still a question, but I do expect there to be some type of fine towards Ray Lewis.
