Does the NFL Help Reduce the Crime Rate? 25

Posted on May 25, 2011 by Adam McCallister

Was Ray Lewis talking about players or fans when he said that the crime rate would rise if there is no NFL this fall?

“Watch how much evil — which we call it crime — watch how much crime picks up if you take away our game.” – Ray Lewis

When you first heard these words what image came to mind? Ray Lewis, 16 year NFL Veteran, 12 time Pro-Bowler, 2 time Defensive player of the year, Super Bowl XXXV MVP, future Hall of Famer and unarguably spiritual and emotional leader of the Baltimore Ravens. Or Ray Lewis, accused murderer in an orange jumpsuit standing in an Atlanta, Georgia courtroom. If your view of Mr. Lewis is that of the latter, that’s okay. It’s your opinion and the above statement is nothing more than that. An opinion.

What if it were more than that?

After all this is an opinion of a guy who has been in the league for 16 years, (providing the NFL plays another season in our existence). A guy who has experienced training camps, OTA’s, playoffs, a Super Bowl, contract negotiations, player mentoring, community projects & philanthropy, new business development and a double homicide trial. This is nothing more than an opinion from a guy who has played in 210 regular season games, 15 playoffs games and doesn’t get his NFL news from ESPN SportsCenter highlights or NFL RedZone. How could he have an opinion that is so far fetched from what fans or NFL “experts” would have? Let’s find out how out of touch Ray is, are you ready?

The Ravens will look to recover after being tripped up by the Patriots.

The Ravens will look to recover after being tripped up by the Patriots.

Overview: After suffering their first defeat of the season at New England, the Baltimore Ravens must recover quickly as they face the surprising Cincinnati Bengals.

Under the direction of former Ravens defensive coordinator Marvin Lewis, the Bengals are off to their best start in several years and very easily could have been undefeated had it not been for a strange bounce in their opener against Denver.

Last Week: The Ravens had a chance to win at New England, but fell just short in a 27-21 defeat. Joe Flacco had another standout day connecting on 27 of 47 passes for 264 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Ray Rice also had a banner day with 103 yards rushing and five receptions for 49 yards.

The Bengals needed all 75 minutes of action allowed in the regular season to sneak out a 23-20 victory over the Cleveland Browns. Carson Palmer continued his solid season with 230 passing yards and two touchdowns.

The trio of Ed Reed, Terrell Suggs and Ray Lewis will all need to be ready against the explosive offense of the San Diego Chargers.

The trio of Ed Reed, Terrell Suggs and Ray Lewis will all need to be ready against the explosive offense of the San Diego Chargers.

Overview: The Baltimore Ravens face their second straight opponent from the AFC West as they travel to San Diego to face the dangerous Chargers.

This could be an interesting early season matchup as the Ravens looked excellent in their victory over the Chiefs while the Chargers struggled against the Raiders and needed some late heroics to pull out the victory.
