Default Ray Lewis is a Crybaby

After yesterday's loss to Cincy, Ray Lewis whined about the penalties.
He complained that penalties cost the Ravens 6 points.

Lewis said that players shouldn't cry. Who's he talking about?
I haven't heard anybody crying or whining except Lewis. He constantly whines and crys about everything. He constantly blames the Ravens losses on the referees.

Lewis insinuated that the QBs are crybabies because of the rules that protect the QBs. The QBs don't make the rules. The League makes the rules and the Referees enforce the rules. I haven't heard any QBs complaining about getting hit. Only person I've heard complaining is Ray Lewis.

Lewis is a chronic whiner and crybaby.
Stp crying Ray and just play the game.

I agree with Ray that Refs are too protective of players on offense sometimes, but he's getting paid millions to play the game, suck it up and play the game like everyone else.

We could debate the pros and cons of protecting the QB back and forth forever.

My point is that Ray Lewis is a chronic whiner.
ESPN has been running a clip of Lewis saying "don't cry, don't cry" all morning.
The only person I hear crying is Ray Lewis.
Lewis is constantly whining about one thing or another.

Lewis is whiny.. but you can't deny there are double-standards when it comes to protecting the QBs in this league. if the Steelers did that corkscrew sack on Palmer, Brady, or Manning instead of Vince Young yesterday, every ref on the field would have thrown their flags. i for one cannot stand these inconsistent, tacky roughing calls. it's not like we ever have any go our way either.

Regardless of you opinion of Ray Lewis, both of those calls were complete BS. If the QB is going to wear pads and a helmet, then he needs to be subject to hits and tackles. "In the grass" never gets called anymore (or is gone completely perhaps), so if Suggs lets up on Palmer because he thinks he threw the ball and Palmer escapes a sack and then makes a big play, that isn't fair. They are football players. They get paid. They should be allowed to be hit or tackled.

More importantly I see common sense being completely disregarded with the refs this year. From the catch by the Calvin Johnson in week 1, to the penalty against Ray. There needs to be some consideration to the INTENT of a rule and what really happened on the field. Does anyone actually think Ray INTENDED to trip Palmer? Does anyone really think that Calvin Johnson DIDN'T catch that pass. I don't care about the "letter" of the law. I'm talking common sense.

Bottom line, I think that QBs are WAY over protected and that the refs need to start using some better judgement.

Lewis is no worse than a lot of fans who bitch and moan about the referees screwing their team.

Rewatch the 3rd Quarter of SB 43 and try and tell him the rouging the passer penalty called on Arizona wasn't complete BS.

The problem with Lewis is all these referees take note of his annual and very vocal complaints.

A lot of times what he is saying is legit, like when he went on a rant last year after a bogus roughing the passer call against the Patriots, prompted by Tom Brady begging the referee for a flag, which was thrown well after the play. Ray was right, the call was egregiously bad. But it's never smart to publically ridicule officals.

Think about it, almost every year the Ravens are one of the, if not the most, penalized teams in the league, it's not a coincidence.

Did ray ray back in the day intend for that guy to trip and fall on the knife 5-6 times?

Right...I get it. But Lewis needs to quit whining about ONE call in the game and look at the game as a whole when determining why they lost. I didn't watch the game, but experience tells me the Ravens probably had more than that one play to win the game.
