Ray Lewis can look to the opposing sideline during the final game of his career and see a man who gave him one of his first tastes of greatness.
In one of those coincidences that's almost too good to be true, San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh was the first sack victim in the legendary career of the Baltimore Ravens linebacker
It happened 17 years ago, when Lewis was a rookie starter on a 4-12 team and Harbaugh was a 33-year-old veteran under center for the Indianapolis Colts.
NFL.com unearthed the video for us today. It's noticeable for two things:
1. The original Lewis sack dance was a shoulder-only shimmy.
2. There's no sound on the clip, presumably because the play in question occurred before the advent of "talkies."
