Default Ray Lewis: We wouldn't know Tom Brady without tuck rule

Ray Lewis: We wouldn't know Brady without tuck rule
Quote:
"When we -- the first time we created something called a tuck rule, it's the only reason we know -- I'm just being honest -- the only reason we know who Tom Brady is, because of a tuck rule," Lewis said. "There's no such thing as a tuck rule! If the ball is in your hand, and I knock it out your hand, whether it's going backwards, forwards, lateral, sideways, however it's coming out, that's a freaking fumble."
...
"But guess what we created? We created a freaking tuck rule!"
...
"They don't go to that championship game -- they don't go to that championship game if that tuck rule, if that ball is not called a tuck! That's a fumble!" he said. "Charles Woodson made that man clearly fumble the ball and they named it the tuck rule, something that we've never heard in today's game. So now you've got to ask yourself: When did the legacy really start?"
...
If I had to take a shot at Lewis' greater point here, I'd guess he's saying that if the tuck play never happened, it would have set off a butterfly effect that would have greatly minimized Tom Brady in NFL lore. No rings, no MVPs, no Gisele.

And by "we" he must mean all alien lifeforms. Because it's clear that an extraterrestrial has invaded Lewis' body.

Followed up by the retract work saying he was expressing frustration towards the rule, and that he has immense respect for Tom Brady.

Ray played the game like he had a meteor-size chip on his shoulder. He's just doing that now under the veil of a lil' ol' oppressed player under the mighty thumb of the league and it's agenda driven rules-on-the-fly.

And Ravens/Pats.

And people look at me cross eyed when I say Vinatieri is the reason that Tom Brady is Tom Brady. (Which I stand by. Give him Mike Vanderjagt and would the Patriots have won the first two S.B?)

And we wouldn't know Ray if he hadn't allegedly conspired to murder somebody.

Am I doing this right?

Vanderjagt made 78.6% of his field goals attempted in the playoffs. Odds are yes.

Really??? Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't he a Super Bowl MVP before that "alleged" conspiracy to murder occurred?

Default Re: Ray Lewis: We wouldn't know Tom Brady without tuck rule

More insight from Ray Lewis:

"We wouldn't know Issac Newton without that apple."

"We wouldn't know Ben Franklin without that kite."

"We wouldn't know Kim Kardashian without that...video."

I have to concur with Ray on that last one.

Default Re: Ray Lewis: We wouldn't know Tom Brady without tuck rule

On the other side of the coin... without that call, if NE loses, does Bledsoe remain the starter the following year and Brady languishes on the bench or get traded?
