OH NO YOU DIDN'T!!! Do not make fun of Dr. Lou!!
I have fapped three times now to Wes Welkers wife.
Yes I did. I actually like him as a person. Seems like a straight up nice grandfather or something. As a football analyst though, not so much.
I also think it's funny how many people make fun of Saban for his size. I was actually about ten feet away from good ole Lou at a Fundraiser once, and that is literally the tiniest man I have ever seen in my life.
Ray Lewis has never even been Married. He was charged with Murder so they could get someone to talk to get the two guys they actually thought committed the murder. If they would have actually charged him with murder their case would have been laughed out of court. he was guilty of not ratting out his friends right away. Even with his testimony they didn't have any evidence and no proof it wasn't self defense.
Just setting the record straight for the uninformed.
Pic Sigs are for losers.
If picking between Butkus, and Singletary it comes down to this.
A)Ray Lewis is better. Just look at the stats, the leadership, his impact to his team/city, his rings(winning a 2nd would solidify hims as the best), his accolades(his DPOY, and All-Pros blow anyone out of the wayter), and his work around the community. He's just the right choice.
The thing that is my #1 pet peeve in all of sports is the notion that the older legends will forever be the best. More so with baseball, but MJ always>>>Lebron even if Lebron shatters every record and wins more rings. If Justin Verlander keeps doing what he's been doing for 10 more years he'd absolutely be one of the 5 best pitchers in history, but people will pick 15 old legends out of their ass and they're automatically better. Same with Pujols. Will end up a top 10 hitter of all time but will not be recognized for it. People are saying no one will ever be better than LT or Joe Montanta even though there will one day be someone that is better. Yet history will never recognize it.
The younger generation is going to hate sports if they can't experience a player that is one of the greatest of all time. I'm 17. The closest I've come to experiencing that is Ray Lewis.
Yeah, I'm 19.
I'm not even going to go into how wrong you are on a couple of these things because I believe that Ray Lewis is top five of all time and probably top three when it comes to his position.
Secondly, I'm 32 years old so "your" generation that you are so eloquently crying about getting no love isn't that far off kid. I see that you are a Ravens fan but don't start throwing in things like leadership and impact to a players team when you have no idea what Butkis or Singletary did in that role. You are going off on some sort of rant that makes no sense. Lebron will get his credit, Ray will get his, Tony Gonzalez will get his, Randy Moss will get his, Sydney Crosby will get his, Peyton and Brady are already getting theirs and the list goes on and on.
P.S. Nobody will be better than LT in the game of football period. That dude was a fvcking freak that couldn't be stopped when four people were trying to block him.
Not even that close is a stretch.
I personally think that you could mix and match any of the following five in any order and I wouldn't have an issue with any way you stack them.
Just look at the resume's of those five guys. They are eerily similar.
Similar but ray played 17 years and at MLB as violent as it is you can add Longevity to Ray's resume. Is he the same as he was 5 or 10 or 15 years ago now? No way but He is still a decent MLB. That is why Ray is the GOAT, the longevity added to the ability.
I'll take the same list and add the 90's Seau as well.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
Greatest LBs list without LT? What the H?!
Also no mention of Bill George or Derrick Thomas is disappointing.
Lewis is great but its tough to name him the greatest of all time. I think LT is the greatest. Really after that its a huge group in the next tier.
Teein' Off on Links
I was under the impression they were talking about true Middle Linebackers only. Thomas was a linebacker/defensive end and Taylor was primarily an outside backer except when he was forced to play the middle on occasion.
She is either one of Ray's ex-wives, or she has a baby he does not claim...
seau was primarily an olb
Junior was outside LB at USC and moved to inside LB shortly after being drafted by the Chargers. I just assumed that became his primary. Thanks...

Mmk that makes more sense. I missed that.
Ya I'd say the that there are 5 in that top tier of MLB. I don't think it's fair to even rank them.
Singletary, Lewis, Lambert, Butkus, Nitschke
Each of these guys is the total package and inspired fear. They don't make them like that anymore. This pass happy league for panzies is ruining the chance for middle linebackers to ever become legendary again.
Derrick brooks is in the discussion for top linebackers with his résumé, and he has never been in trouble off the field
I always loved watching him play. Punishing linebacker, started 221 of 224 games. Here's how his numbers compare to some of the others.
Derrick Brooks (11seasons)
Jack Lambert (10 seasons)
Ray Lewis (16 seasons)
Mike Singletary (11 seasons)
Dick Butkus (8 seasons)
Fumble Recoveries 27

By the way, if anyone is confused on how much of a man Chuck Bednarik was, read below.
Maybe she should hate less and get on her man for having butterfingers. As long as he takes care of his kids who cares, I don't hear them complaining
All of the patriots and Boston fans are sore losers Brady, Darth Vader
