If you get caught up in the melodrama that is the Super Bowl hype over the next two weeks, you could end up thinking Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis is lining up to play this game by himself.
Everything will be Ray Lewis based with a little bit of the Harbaugh brothers mixed in. That is not case though, as Torrey Smith will tell you via NFL.com, “Ray Lewis isn’t the only guy on the Ravens.”
“We wanted to be here before (Lewis) said he wanted to retire,” wide receiver Torrey Smith told reporters on Monday. “We all want to win a Super Bowl. You know, Ray isn’t the only guy here. He has one (ring) and we all know that this is his last shot at it. Ed Reed has never been to the Super Bowl. Terrell Suggs has never been to one. Anquan Boldin has never won one, he’s been there. These are (who) I play for every day, we play for each other.”
Some will try to make you believe Torrey Smith is hating or taking a shot at his leader. Not at all, but Smith is letting you know other guys on that team have legacies and dreams besides Ray Lewis.
