Down and Distance:
Arguably one of the best players in the league, Ed Reed, is not considering retirement even though his longtime teammate, Ray Lewis played his last home game with the Ravens on Sunday afternoon.
Ed Reed is in the final year of his contract with the Baltimore Ravens but, is not ready to call it quits just yet.
“I’m football. I’m completing this year, and like I always tell you, I assess it every year. I assess myself every year physically. A guy in football, if he doesn’t do that, something’s wrong. So I’m not worried about that. I’m not focused on that. Right now, it’s playoffs, it’s Denver, its football,” he tells around the league writer Marc Sessler.
Reed is a 34-year old safety, heading into his 12th season as an NFL player. It is very doubtful that he will be signed to large contract, especially with some recent injuries to his neck and shoulder. He still has a great ability to play his position well, tying the team lead for interceptions this season with four.
The Baltimore Ravens organization hasn’t spoken out on whether they will re-sign Ed Reed or not. Personally, I’m sure that if the Ravens no longer want Ed Reed, another team will gladly add him to their roster. Only time will tell.

Last Wednesday when Baltimore Ravens All Pro linebacker Ray Lewis announced to the media that this season would be his 'last ride' everyone was taken by storm. Sure, Lewis is 37, and this was probably going to be his last season anyway, but no one expected the news. It had seemed that the longevity of his career would continue. No one outdoes Father Time however, and Lewis...
Until Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice had gone 21 straight games without losing a fumble. So when reporters asked about his two fumbles in last week's game, he was a little upset.

Ray Lewis' last ride now will take him to Denver.
Anquan Boldin, Joe Flacco and a staunch Baltimore defense made sure of that Sunday.
Boldin set a franchise record with 145 yards receiving, including the clinching touchdown in the Ravens' 24-9 victory over Indianapolis in an AFC wild-card game. The win delays star linebacker Lewis' retirement for at least another week...
With Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis playing his final game in front of the Baltimore Ravens faithful, he performed his signature dance for the final time today.
Here is how looked courtesy of the folks over at The Big Lead:
I dare you to watch this and not shed a tear. O.J. Brigance, who was a former special teams player for the Baltimore Ravens. In 2007 Brigance was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which is better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, which is a progressive neurodegenerative disease for which there is still no cure. The crippling disease took away O.J.’s ability...
Baltimore halfback Ray Rice rushed for 70 yards and lost two fumbles Sunday against the Colts.Fantasy Spin:What's equally alarming is that Bernard Pierce saw almost as many carries as Rice did on Sunday (13 for Pierce, 15 for Rice). Could the Ravens be headed for a running back by committee system? Rice's fantasy owners better hope not.
The Ravens’ defense has played well with Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Haloti Ngata and Ed Reed all playing together for the first time this season. However, they’ve gotten little help from the offense.
Ray Rice fumbled in the red zone on the Ravens first possession. That ended a promising drive that began at their own 48-yard line.
The Colts returned the favor when Andrew Luck coughed...

Gabrielle Union imitates the Ray Lewis intro dance
Gabrielle Union is accustomed to greatness. She’s great, and so is her man Dwyane Wade, but she also recognizes it when she sees it and Sunday she gave credit where it was due with this tribute photo to Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.
Imitation is the greatest form of flattery.
