Adopt-a-Bronco:
Julius "Fluff"
Default Ray Lewis to retire

The long, storied career of Ray Lewis is coming to an end.

The Baltimore Ravens linebacker informed teammates and coaches on Wednesday that Sunday's playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts will be his final run at M&T Bank Stadium, according to the team.
Take a look back at the best photos of Ray Lewis.
"This will be my last ride," Lewis said.

Nice try ray ray.

Your team is not good enough. Hell of a career but a 2nd round spanking is coming at the hands of Denver or NE.

Flacco the wacco will buckle under pressure

Ray Lewis has been playing football since we had our old uniforms with the D horse logo. That's how old this dude is.

He's saying it's his last game at the home stadium. The only scenario where it wouldn't be his last home game is if both the Broncos and Patriots lose in the divisional round and the Ravens end up hosting the AFC Championship game. I think his assumption is fairly safe regardless of the Ravens winning or not.

EDIT: Actually the only scenario where the Ravens could play another home after next week would be a Bengals at Ravens AFC Championship game.

Is Lewis even able to play right now? Is he actually going to take the field in the playoffs?

Yeah, I remember that wild BAL-DEN game in 1996 where Elway, TD, and Testaverde (of all people) went off.

The funniest part is you actually took the time to lay out the scenarios in response to a joke.

Sometimes, you get to the point where the body just won't perform murder like it used to. At that point, you have to make a decision. Do I perform murder at 40 percent or 50 percent of what I used to be capable of? Or do I shut it down while I'm still committing murder at a high level?

Yeah, they "stole" it from some security company that actually sued them or something like that.

It always reminded me of the Airwolf logo.

It would be hilarious, if they rode this sentiment all the way to the AFC Championship game. When we played Baltimore, the score was closer than it actually was...

When it's all said and done though, he's probably the best Mike to ever play the game.

Hopefully, he is able to bring his game to Denver on Jan. 12th and the Broncos can kick his criminal ass out of the league.
