Ray Lewis is the greatest Raven of all-time, the greatest middle linebacker of all-time and a stone-cold lock to be a first ballot Hall of Famer. Canton will be decorated in purple for that induction.

But for Ray to say the things he said about Tom Brady, you have to wonder if he had just left happy hour.

If you haven’t heard, watch and listen to the video below…

Interestingly enough some fans have emailed and Tweeted that they agree with Ray and point out that if the Patriots lost that Divisional Playoff Game against the Raiders, Brady would have been back on the bench the following season, yielding to Drew Bledsoe.

C’mon man!

Twice during that season Bill Belichick had opportunities to reinsert Bledsoe as his starter and instead opted for Brady, including the Super Bowl.

As much as I despise Brady’s whining, pouting, childish antics when things don’t go Tommy’s way, Lewis’ comments are whack.

Ray, I’ll give you this – you brought it strong, but you also brought it wrong!

UPDATE: After posting this blog Ray Lewis sent out this Tweet:

The more time that goes by without a replacement for John Fox in Denver, the more I think Gary Kubiak is heading west and should he go, it’s likely that quarterback coach Rick Dennison is going with him.

Our memories are short-term. The Ravens offense amped it up in the playoffs for sure but let’s not forget some of those incredibly flat offensive performances down the home stretch. It would be great if Kubiak stays, provided they pick up where they left off and not fall back into the self-induced coma in late December.

But if he does leave for Denver, a team the Ravens play in 2015, replacement candidates include: Kyle Shanahan; Adam Gase (although Atlanta is hot in pursuit); Marc Tressman; and Ravens TE coach Brian Pariani.

Our resident capologist Brian McFarland hints that the Ravens may have been coerced into settling with Ray Rice.

Maybe the settlement is precedent setting too…
