Ray Lewis: 18th Greatest NFL Player of All Time

Share

It’s finally here.

The 9th episode of  “Top 100: NFL’s Greatest Players” had Baltimore Ravens MLB Ray Lewis as the 18th greatest player of all time.

Can’t really argue with that (though I could easily place him in the top 10, but I may be bias). This makes Ray Ray the greatest linebacker (Jack Lambert comes in second, ranked 29th).

Here’s Sugar Ray’s resume:

  • 11× Pro Bowl selection; (1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009)
  • 7× AP First Team All-Pro selection (1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2008, 2009)
  • 2× AP Second Team All-Pro selection (1997, 1998)
  • Super Bowl champion (XXXV)
  • Super Bowl XXXV MVP
  • 2× AP NFL Defensive Player of Year (2000, 2003)
  • 3× AFC Defensive Player Of The Year (2000, 2001, 2003)
  • 2× NFL Alumni Linebacker Of The Year (1999, 2003)
  • 2× All-American (1994, 1995)
  • 11 Pro Bowl Appearances (an NFL record for Inside/Middle Linebackers)
  • Shares Record of 9 All-Pro selections for Inside/Middle Linebacker with Joe Schmidt
  • NFL 2000s All-Decade Team
  • 20 sack/20 interception Club- Quickest to reach (113 games)

There’s no doubt he deserves this spot. After seeing Tom Brady as the 21st greatest of all time, it’s a sigh of relief to have No. 52 ranked higher than him. If you missed the show, I’ve got you all covered. It’s recorded off my phone, so don’t complain about the quality.
