Default Ray Lewis vs. London Fletcher

LF just announced he plans to retire. Who do you think had the better career (numbers are pre-2013):

Fletcher has a 0 in the murder stats column. That's a big plus in his favor.

While I do think Ray Lewis was one of the greatest middle linebackers of all time, I feel like he was still a bit overrated due to being such a media sensation. And a professional knife-herder.

when raven fans say ray lewis was the greatest MLB of all time, i like to say he wasnt even the greatest MLB of his era, and present london fletchers stats and career.

fletcher is just low-key and isnt a self aggrandizing, self promoter. he also doesnt come with tha THUG U murderous hype machine.

but to his credit, this argument held alot more water before an injured and useless (on the field) ray lewis won baltimore a 2nd SB, last year.

London lost in his 2nd SB to the rams.

also worthy to note that all of londons tackle statistics are real, not inflated "pile-ons" or touches.

It wasn't Ray Lewis that won that 2nd Super Bowl. It was the oral deer penis velvet spray.

I don't like to get to much into a "this player is better than that player" argument too much, but Fletcher in my opinion was good for a longer period of time.

EXACTLY!! Fletcher has it all over Lewis. Lewis was usually the third one in on the tackle, but the first one to dance! He was overrated for at least the last five years! The media kept hyping him up even though you could see he was average at best for at least the last five years. How in the world was he even as high as he was on the top 100 NFL lists when you had other linebackers that were better than him?!

I hear the "impact" argument all the time. To that I always respond with, "Who lined up alongside Ray Lewis?"

Everyone knows who they are: Reed, Suggs, Ngata, McAllister, Boulware, Woodson, Thomas, to name a few.

Then, I'll ask the same for Fletcher. And I always get this:

"... "

Useless? I think you spelled "San Francisco was too stupid to keep burning Lewis with Vernon Davis" wrong. Davis was eating Lewis for breakfast.

If I had been the OC, Vernon Davis likely would have walked out of that game with 300 yards and 6 touchdowns, seeing as how Baltimore never seemed to want to take Lewis off of him.
