    I remember that a couple of years ago. Lewis forced Billick to draft that big NT in the first round to protect his career standing.

    AD just hit him with a VICIOUS uppercut!

    Hmm...I kinda wish AD just left it as, "I'm gonna call Ray and we'll work this out man to man, but other than that, I have no comment."

    Good point...but he's not a robot. I really don't want to every single Patriots player do the humble act with every single situation. I LIKE to see humanity...faults & emotion...as long as it doesn't involve the team.

    And this situation doesn't involve the team.

    I agree to an extent, but I think he handled it with enough class.
    He also raised a great point about Lewis calling out his own coach when he can walk into the practice facility and talk to him personally.

    One big factor you may be missing here.

    This wasn't some criticism of an out of town athlete.

    Ray Lewis was personally criticizing a former Raven who has DEEP roots in the Baltimore community. His wife taught for many years at a school in Catonsville and AD had many local charitable activities and board memberships.

    If Ray Lewis was criticizing LaDainian Tomlinson or someone without the deep family and personal ties to Baltimore, I would agree with you.

    As a result, I believe BB probably gave AD a pass on this one because of those circumstances. Think if Willie McGinest was getting trashed in the press by Mike Vrabel.

    When I saw this part of the quote I thought he was falling in line with what you are saying, but then he kind of went 180 on it.

    This controversy may be good news for the Pats. A.D. is awesome but tends to coast from time to time. This issue with Ray Ray may make him focus even more from play to play, and the Pats will reap the rewards.

    You can only toe the company line and say the right things for so long before your feelings take over. He was criticized and called out publicly. All things considered, for a Pats newbie, I think he put it pretty well.
