    Ray Lewis vs. LT on the field and off

    On the field, Ray Lewis is arguably the greatest LB of this generation. Likewise, LT IS the greatest of his generation, maybe of all time. However, they do play different positions. Lewis is also going for his second Superpbowl, possibly tying LT. On the field, who is/was more important to their team? Is LT's play too much for Lewis to overcome or does Lewis's leadership prove him to be more valuable on a possibly let talented team?

    Off the field, Lewis has changed his image into a humble and spiritual leader for his community. However, it is not in the distant past he was up for murder charges, paying off families of victims, and lets not forget (thank you Mrs. Welker) his 5 kids and 4 wives. That is hardly the resume of a role model.

    Off the field, LT is linked heavily to drugs, prison, and more recently, sex with a minor and prostitution. While he has not shown to have too many redeeming qualities or even attempted to rehabilitate his image like Lewis has, it is hard to look past the fact that drugs and prostitution is nowhere near as heinous as murder.

    So, what is everyone's opinions of Lewis vs. LT on and off the field?

    Right. The fact that it was such a huge deal had nothing to do with OJ being an A-list mainstream celebrity at the time who led the police on a primetime TV car chase?

    Also, If you're going to use the "not guilty" or "acquitted" specifics in your criteria, at least be consistent. You're saying that by your judgement, and your judgement alone the evidence against OJ was strong enough for you to form a guilty despite being found innocent opinion, yet at the same time Ray Lewis was declared 'innocent' therefore everyone needs to let it go and accept him as being innocent.

    Sorry, your reasoning is far from consistent enough to make a shred of sense whatsoever.

    Lewis loves to hear himself talk, he's a clown off the field anyway you look at it.

    Yeah right.....the girl with the beat up face, and her parents were to blame for her being there!
    Never mind that she wasn't even a hooker, that the pimp beat and forced her to go, and that given her first opportunity, she phoned her uncle who had the police waiting for the lowlife when he brought her back to the neighborhood.
    Sound like any hooker you've ever heard of???

    I agree with the comments of LT changing the game and being the greatest OLB of all time and Lewis being one of the best MLB of al time.

    The other difference between the two is there attitude on the field. LT was about playing the game and putting hurtings on dude's. His work ethic And attitude was as blue as the jersey he wore for so many years. Lewis with his annoying pregame dance, attention getting eye black and camera hungry chanting comes off really self consumed and star hungry. Besides Deon Sanders I can't think of any football player with a bigger "look at me" jones than Ray Lewis.

    On the field, Ray Lewis is an excellent LB who comes up a bit short in comparison to LT's natural ability and in the way LT was able to dictate the course of a football game.

    Off the field - well, I just don't know. I feel that we all think we know that Ray Lewis is not innocent - but none of us can be sure what he is guilty of. I believe I know what LT was guilty of. I think LT was guilty of wanting too much fun - and hurting some people in the pursuit of it.

    I'll stick with watching the games and the plays that the players make and accept that for what it is. If I want a sports hero, I'll look to one of the many athletes around that you'd like your kid to model themselves after. There are plenty of them - in all ages and races.

    Lol all jokes aside, Judging people's lives based on past events which happened many years ago is pretty low, and has nothing to do with giants football. i could never judge someone i dont know especially if i have never met them. Thats just not me. But i am curious. what do you guys consider good off of the field? What types of things should a person do off of the field to be considered a good person? Who are some good off of the field players?
    Best comment on the thread thus far. I'll stick to a football analysis. LT was 3 times as dominant as Ray Lewis. LEAGUE MVP!!!!! He was the reason I became a Giants fan. He was the God of War on the battlefield. Youtube has Ray and LT highlights If you compare the two then you'll see that there really is no comparison.

    LT was just amazing and Lewis in his own right a very special HOF player
    as well.

    Off the field LT had his demons and its seems they
    are still with him till this day.

    Ray Lewis on the other hand stays clear
    of being a nightly news target. Being associated
    with a murder is a serious issue but that was a long
    time ago, I am not supporting ray lewis but LT's off field
    issues have been documented for years to present.

    Lewis seems to have cleaned up his act for awhile now.

    see....

    OK....right
    I think you have too. Cant just leave the scene or try and cover it up because it looks worse. The person looks guilty of something. If youre forthcoming and say it was self defense its more believable.
