I agree, they aren't comparable, how about a dislocated rib / separated shoulder though? That was a miraculous recovery as well, there were reports of Ben being out the rest of the season.

I don't think Ben was doping, I'm just saying it is not unheard of to come back from injury more quickly than expected.

For instance. You wouldn't say Ray Lewis' miraculous "recovery", because it was a recovery god damn it, you aren't questioning it, you are questioning the miracle part.

Correct: Ray Lewis' so-called "miraculous" recovery.

Incorrect: Ray Lewis' miraculous so-called "recovery".

Thanks for listening

Ravens seem to have great record recently of coming back early from "season ending" (hope I got the quotation marks in the right place according to your elements of style) injuries such as achilles tendon (Suggs) and triceps tears (Ray Ray) - perish the thought that is anything other than coincidental and because both of them are such great competitors

To All You Lewis Haters.... Suck it down, your worst wishes came true. Ray Lewis retires and Baltimore wins and Flacco is Elite. Your team didn't and you hate it. Tough Shit! You post crap like this, and guess what... It comes back to haunt you!

Funny part is, Ray Lewis DID end up watching this Super Bowl (albeit on the field).

Flacco is still not elite, he's nowhere near manning Brady or Rodgers

True... But what a way to retire. The Ravens fought hard and Lewis gets to go out in incredible style. To all who were sincere in their thanks, Thank you very much! Good luck later this year...

LOL you make me laugh.. He shut them both out as well as your beloved Ben. He is Elite. Deal with it. This forums entire argument was he would not be until he won a superbowl. He did and while the sting bites you in the ass, he deserves it.

No he's really not. You can't put him in the same category as those guys. Nowhere close. He lost to Charlie mutherfuckin batch. He just got hot at the right time. He's not elite and anyone who says so is delusional
