Ray Lewis Returning Sunday Could Spark Baltimore Ravens
Will Ray Lewis do his dance when enters the Baltimore Ravens‘ ring of honor on Sunday? Will Lewis give a pre-game speech to the Ravens before the game against the Houston Texans? Who knows? But Lewis just being back in M&T Bank Stadium should be enough to spark the Ravens.
The Ravens are 1-1 on the year, but they don’t look like themselves. They look like a team who is just going through the motions. Does that correlate to Lewis not being on the roster anymore? Maybe, maybe not. But Lewis’ presence alone should do it. Lewis doesn’t have to say a word. They understand.
Adding to that in some ways, you could argue that Lewis refusing to give motivation speeches would be good for the team, as they need to learn to move on, and I’m sure they are doing just that. But if the Ravens’ players really need that spark, Lewis should speak.
The Ravens however, have looked like they were going through the motions before when Lewis was on the team, so everything wasn’t always pretty. At the same time, it is very different as the Ravens are the defending Super Bowl champions. They have had a chip on their shoulder during the offseason so the way they have come out a bit flat overall is surprising, especially given the disrespect the team has received during the offeseason with critics giving them no shot to make the playoffs. The Week 1 loss allowing seven touchdowns in the process didn’t help matters either.
Despite some of the early struggles this year, Lewis is pleased with what he has seen on defense as he suggests the chemistry will grown within the unit.
“They’re adjusting to a lot of new pieces,” Lewis noted via Baltimoreravens.com. “I think they’re doing a pretty good job. Sometimes on Sunday it doesn’t always show. But once the chemistry starts to kick in there, I think everything will be fine.”
