    I'd be all for Ray Lewis. It's a deal. I don't like the way he semi blamed the other players on his current team last night for not protecting him, because ultimately, maybe he should be taking bumps for them, but I'd take him. Bulluck and Lewis would be potential ferocity.

    Ray Lewis would be perfect for the lockerrom. He brings instant leadership, credibility, and respect. If anyone can get Pacman to straighten up, its him, Ray knows how it is. And Ray is the first person to tell you that you can come out of it.

    The Ravens would never trade for McNair. It would be very lopsided. I love McNair to death and appreciate all he has done for this team but if I were picking for the other team I would see him as damaged goods. A good hard sneeze could put him on the bench. Ray Lewis is just as quality of player who is much more durable and has probably more years left. Ray had a shoulder problem that bothered him for 2 seasons but that is fixed. Alot better health record than what McNair has. Ravens would be stupid to do this trade evenly. As for Big men in front of him, I don't think he would mind looking in front of him and seeing Haynesworth's big butt. Mcnair wont last 6 games for the Ravens before injury. Their O line wont be able to protect him enough.

    I think you're underestimating Baltimore. With a QB behind center that they had to respect, I think you'd see a lot less pressure and 8-man boxes. Remember, last year in pre-season, many people had them going deep into the postseason (myself included).

    Why should Baltimore even try to trade for McNair though ? They will almost certainly get him for a free in a few weeks.

    Ummmm he was a perennial pro-bowler and one of the most underrated players ever the years before he got Sam Adams and company. They made him (as well as their whole D) shine, sure. But make no mistake, Ray Lewis would have been a great LB anywhere.

    Well, because the longer we keep him, the less effective he could be for them. Plus, they might have to compete with other teams for his services.
