Default Ray Lewis Touts McNair as Jesus

What a complete moron He compares McNair to Jesus. Their father made a "sacrifice!?!!?!?!?" Are you kidding me. Their father was banging a 20 year old behind his wife's back...sacrifice my ass. Lewis has said many stupid things but I'm afraid he's outdone himself . Gee wonder what Mrs McNair's thoughts where when Lewis made that crack.

"He (McNair) left a legacy. The same way when Jesus left, because he had to sacrifice for all of us. Y'all father put out one heck of a sacrifice, young men. Every time y'all walk out the door, hold your head up high. Because he left something that a lot of men can't father."

I realize he was delivering a eulogy and you're supposed to say nice things about the deceased in such situations, but that was a bit much.

I couldn't stomach 7 minutes of Ray Lewis, but I agree with your point. Also it seems like Ray sounds a little gay to me, maybe it's the lisp.

Yeah! Screw Ray for honoring a man at his funeral in front of thousands of family/friends/fans!

The Jesus reference was a bit much, but who the hell are we to comment on Steve McNair's respectability? None of us have ever even had a conversation with McNair, let alone known him like Ray did.

I never had any kind of attachment to Steve, and the rumors coming out certainly don't look good, but again, Ray Lewis knew McNair for many, many years, and we didn't.

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.

It depends on what you believe in Ravnet. I don't care if the player is a Steeler, Raven, Bengal or not...there are areas of right and wrong. I love James Harrison as a player, but as a person....not so much. McNair was a very good QB, but the image he tried to portray as a "family man"...flushed right down the drain.
