i have heard this theory before, and i agree with it for the most part.

He seems like one of those guys you would kill (pun probably intended) to be teammates with and love to play for.

i can not see ray lewis being a head coach. not ever.

great team motivator? absolutely. lower lever defensive coach? maybe. top tier coach? no effing way.

if you are a top pro athlete that's seen as a leader during your career, chances are you'd be a great motivational speaker as long as you're well-spoken. we've had Alonzo Mourning in for speaking engagements and he was just excellent. of course, he's been through different things that he draws upon to be inspirational, but he does it well. I saw a 30/30 feature on Ray and his dad and I did get the impression that Ray could be the same

Will he be able to do his dance in the studio or broadcast booth?

There are a few exceptions to the great player/bad coach to include: Bill Russell and Dick Jauron. Lombardi might also be loosely included in this group - he was a member of the "seven blocks of Granite" at Fordham at a time when college was the highest level of football.

In general though, it's a take on, "those who can, do. Those who can't, teach"

Does this Minnesota quarterback ever throw?
post #938 of 1663
looks like houston squeaked by cincy. not a great sign imo. either that or cicny is a lot better than i thought.
post #939 of 1663
no, not from that game. lots of missed passes, lots of mistakes, drops, etc.

Would seem there is good reason for him not to.
