Seriously, at this point we think Ray Lewis could conceivably tackle a semi triuck, and put a serious hurt on the eighteen wheeler. This weekend the monster back for the Baltimore Ravens took down speedy wide out Chad Johnson (also known as Chad Ocho Cinco) and hit him hard enough to take his helmet off. The type of hit you normally only see in games of NFL Blitz, Lewis nails Johnson as he comes down after chasing after an incomplete pass.
It would take years before he would understand that his mother had committed a truly courageous act, that despite all she’d done to push him into the gang, she was the first with the guts to stand up to it.

I played RB in high school (though I was woefully undersized, and didn get a lot of carries) so I have an affinity for the position..
The NFL star and his fianc stepped out in Liverpool, England, for their rehearsal dinner Tuesday night, which featured celebrity friends such as Kelly Rowland and Lala Vasquez. “The rehearsal dinner was beautiful. Ciara and Russell couldn’t keep their hands off of each other,” another source previously told E! News.
The Bears had better win or there will be a total housecleaning with another McCaskey (maybe Brian) taking charge. All the pressure is on new offensive coordinator Mike Martz, who must make Jay Cutler a playoff winning quarterback.
