Default Re: Ray Lewis Touts McNair as Jesus

Personally...I think Ray got caught up in the moment of the eulogy and said something he probably didn't even agree with. I have never had to give a speech about a dear friend of mine that has passed away, so I can't say what kind of emotions go through you in a time like that.

I will say that the Jesus comparison is a wrong one. Great warrior, QB...I agree....but this man died in a way that devastated his wife, left his children fatherless, and damaged any kind of credibility he had of being a "family man". A man who loves his family isn't cheating on his wife....and separated or not....he is still married. The girl that killed him was, according to the NY Times, not his only existing girlfriend. To compare McNair to Jesus...in any form or fashion, is just plain wrong.
