No offense to you Ray Ray haters (It is deserved) but he is nothing like a PAC-man. he is a good locker room presence and that is one of the reasons we played them in the AFCG @ home and not vs. Tenn. in Tenn. I'm just saying, i don't ever see us getting him but how could you not want him? Best middle linebacker in the NFL and would give a good locker room presence with a peazy attitude. just saying. but i hope he goes to the cowboys. because if he isn't with us and he has to be in the NFL send him to the NFC.

luckily we have the best D already

The man was part of a murder. He should be serving many years behind bars. Pac Man maybe an ass, but he is paying for it. Ray Ray for some reason gets to walk and a free pass. I call bullshit. I don't want him anywhere near the Steelers locker room.

I'm thinking it would be a chemistry nightmare.  There's nothing broken in the locker room, the guys don't need what Ray Ray is bringing.  You think Smith, Hampton, Harrison, Farrior, Polamalu, et al give two shits for what Ray has to say?  No fucking way man.

Let him go to Dallas and deal with TO and Jessica and Coach Doughnut.

Other than the personal reasons, its just not a good business decision to sign Ray Ray. The guy probably has 1 or 2 more years playing at a high level. After that, you will need him to re-structure, or you cut him. Either way , he won't be worth the 20-25 mil guaranteed you just gave him to play for 2 years. For a mack LB, I will take Potsie.

Frankly, Farrior has better numbers all around. This year he had 133 tackles, 87 solo, and 3.5 sacks. He turned 34 on Jan. 6th. Ray had 117 tackles, 85 solo, and 3.5 sacks. They had the same number of TLoss, 5. Ray had 1 more FF, and he had 3 INT's. So other than INT's, Farrior was better, or equal to Lewis who turns 34 in May.

It really becomes a no brainer when you consider contracts. Potsie just signed a 5 year, 18.25 mil extension that is heavily front loaded. He got a 5 mil signing bonus, and will get 10 mil over the 1st 2 years, 12.6 mil over the 1st 3. So why pay twice as much to get the same performance from a mack LB?

One more thing............ Fuck you Ray Ray.

I like our defense better without the Peazy attitude.  Loved him as a player, but sometimes his mouth got on my last nerve.

We have the best defense in football. You don't fuck with that. I don't care if we could get him for the veteran's minimum, wouldn't take him. The only position that I could see us looking for an upgrade on is DB.

I would love to see Ray Lewis go to Dallas for this simple reason....

Yes I can.  He would not be an upgrade over foote/timmons.  Timmons will come into his own, at a fraction of the cost.
Give me a break dude!  Get your head right, cause thinking of Ray Ray in Black & Gold ain't right.
