    Appreciation

    As expected, the loss stings, but I thought it would be appropriate to show some respect and appreciation for a warrior that has been doing it for so long, Ray Lewis. It was clear that Ray Lewis' impact was felt on that last redzone stand and he willed his team to a win and his 2nd super bowl ring. Patrick Willis has the potential to be a great middle linebacker, but he totally disappeared last night. Willis should model himself after Lewis how he rallies his team around him and wills them to a win.

    The 49ers are most likely a better overall team talentwise than the Ravens, but pure heart and soul can't be replaced. The Ravens won last night because of Lewis and his impact on the rest of his teammates. Even Lewis said no weapon formed against them shall prosper, and if anything could destroy the Ravens momemtum it would have been when the lights cut out. But a true warrior picked up his team and got the job done even through obstacles. I would like to see Willis become more of a vocal leader for this team like Lewis because it clearly pays off.

    I don't see Willis as a vocal guy, you can't turn someone into something they're not.

    Also, I think it's fair to contest your saying 'Lewis' impact was felt' with point him out as one of the most ineffective players on the field yesterday. I think he's getting too much credit.

    Im saying that just him presence on the field impacts that team for the best. Even if he's not playing at a high level, when a team knows that their general is out their fighting with them, it does wonders for the confidence of the defense. The Ravens secondary(especially in the 2nd half) was just as bad as the 49ers but i'm just saying that Lewis can get that team to fight at a critical part of the game when he wants to.

    This one hurts. Hell of a season but these niners have devastated me two years in a row. Have no doubt we will be perennial playoff contenders under Kap for many years

    I don't buy any of this. Ray Lewis sucked at football last game, he couldn't cover anybody and was dominated by our O-Line against the run. He's old, slow and not that good at football, and if he were on the 49ers roster I'm not sure he would play a single down. Maybe special teams?

    Moreover, this whole "playing with emotion" and "rallying behind your teammate" crap is the single most exaggerated facet of professional sports. The media needs to dumb down the game and make it appeal to women/families/marginal fans so they end up championing narratives about "emotion" that have nothing to do with the game - "So and so's grandmother died last week so his teammates are rallying around him and playing with emotion, which is the reason why the Heartthumpers will beat the Tearjerkers in Sunday's contest" Give me a f&cking break. All of these guys are professional athletes, all of them play really really hard every single game. To think otherwise is just stupid.

    So sick of hearing about Ray Lewis, and I guarantee you his teammates are too. I guarantee you they are tired of his crying and his sermons. BAL played hard because they are a bunch of bad*ss mofos, Ray Lewis included, and the same can be said of SF. Teams like NE that don't have tough players... that's a different story. You can actually see those types of teams/players get shook as the game goes on and they get tuned up a couple times.

    There are a lot of players on the Ravens I like (Ray Rice is one of my fav running backs.... behind any 49ers one of course), Lewis doesn't even make my top 53.

    Ray Lewis is a piece of ****. This thread is laughable. Willis outplayed Lewis last night and had more of an impact than Lewis.

    The one thing that makes me sad is how many lives will be lost now that Ray Lewis doesn't have football.

    A thread dedicated to Ray Lewis in the 49er forum? I have seen it all now.

    The loss hurts, but I am thankful for two memorable seasons in which I witnessed my team come back to relevance, and contention, and it looks like we are here to stay, hopefully we can develop another dynasty and hold it for many years. I am excited about our teams future, and though I didn't want the undefeated in the SB record to be broken, I will force myself to be satisfied with the last two seasons, other fans didn't even enjoy a .500 season, much less a playoff appearance. Next season, though, it's all business, and you either get better or you get worse. We all know what better is...

    Why is this thread still open? Is Nutty the only mod that is left? JBeezy is barely around anymore. I nominate RedandGold for mod.
