Joe Flacco Admits Ray Lewis’ Motivational Speeches Didn’t Make Sense

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco may not be the most exciting guy to play the position, but he’s proven to really get the job done in the clutch and his toughness can’t be questioned. Joe Flacco/LockerReport.com The 6-6, 245-pound signal-caller also seems to come into his own in the postseason.  He fired on 73 of 126 passes (57.9 percent) for 1,140 yards and 11 touchdowns...

Joe Flacco Says Ray Lewis’ Fiery Pregame Speches Did Not Make Sense ’90 Percent of the Time’

  Don’t count on Joe Flacco to get in the middle of the Ravens’ offense any time soon to give a fiery, Ray Lewis-esque speech.

Ray Lewis & Pharrell – Natural Born Hitters

Former Baltimore Ravens star Ray Lewis and Pharrell have teamed together for a short film called Ready for August, a movie based on Lewis’ high school career.

Pharrell and Ray Lewis team up for a mixtape

No, this is real.  I couldn’t make this stuff up. The king of music for 2013, Pharrell Williams, is teaming up with former Ravens linebacker, Ray Lewis, for their Natural Born Hitters mixtape.
