Ray Lewis talking to Stanford students, even if they are athletes is like Stephen Hawking teaching figure skating.

Unless their dream is to grow up and be stabbers.

Being from B-More Ray's always turned my stomach since I hate the Ravens but if asked who I felt was the best football player of "my generation" (basically from circa 1995-now), I think I'd be deciding between Ray and Manning. Man, he's been a ****ing monster.

Dang... very valid point. I just tried to think of someone better and really do struggle. I think, though, if you use the term "football player", you have to make it between Lewis and Favre.

Ray sure does a good job driving the point home. He cuts right to the heart of the issue at hand.

He's been amazing too, hard to quantify how good 2005-2006 was. I'd have no issue putting Champ right up there too but when I ask myself who I honestly believe was the best (in many ways due to the feeling they gave me as a fan facing them) it's either Ray or Peyton.

Bailey doesn't make his entire team better, Ray Lewis does.

so does Elway qualify as the previous generation then? Not really sure if generation qualifier is a 20 - 25 year window or if it's much shorter.

LT is my guy, and to me, the best football player ever.

I'm rather impressed with the sharp manner of his apparel. Nothing dull about looking concealing your shirt tail. The business casual look is the swiss army knife of the male wardrobe. The serrated pleats aren't necessarily my style, but he incorporates them well into his functional design.

I was only keeping it to my personal time period of when I began loving the game. I've since been abe to go back and watch tons of games from before my time of Elway, Marino, Rice, LT, etc. But for me, the times I was watching games live and completely immersed in them, Ray and Peyton have been the best.

Another amazing thing about Ray is how durable he has been.
