Look at the impact Ray Lewis is having on the Ravens during his emotional return for this year's playoffs. He's not even half the player he used to be talent wise but just having Ray Lewis changes the entire attitude of that team. A healthy Brian Cushing, is in my opinion, the best MLB/ILB in the game.
