Flacco Says Lewis Pep Talks Made No Sense

We all remember the images of former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis firing up his team before games.

Or at least we thought he was. 

According to Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, a lot of what Lewis said made no sense. 

“I love Ray,” Flacco said, “and I love how he always spoke from the heart, but if you listened to those speeches, a lot of them didn’t even make sense. He meant everything he was saying, but I didn’t know what he was talking about 90% of the time."

Damn! That's kinda harsh, isn't it?

Flacco is basically calling Lewis' speeches dumb. Wonder if Flacco every walked up to Ray while he was there to tell him that?

Actually, no. The fact he's still vertical confirms he never did.

Still, it took real courage to come out and say that now, Joe, after the man is gone. 

Flacco must have forgotten that Lewis now works for ESPN, and at some point, my guess is that he will have to face the linebacker again ... let's say, on the set of Monday Night Football.

Wonder how that conversation will go?
