Amani Toomer Says Ray Lewis Is A Hypocrite, Calls Him “Mr. Religious”

Yikes. Some harsh words from former Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer about Ray Lewis.

“It’s definitely all about him,” Toomer told USA Today‘s Mike Garafolo. “Once a guy goes to the center of the field, goes into the victory formation on the last play of his last home game … I just don’t think the Giants or any organization I’ve ever been a part of, even growing up, would allow somebody to single themselves out like that.

“If you single yourself out after you make a play, that’s one thing,” Toomer continued. “But to walk out on the field reminds me of the WWE, like The Rock coming out. You’re becoming a caricature of yourself. It’s exhausting. I don’t know why somebody would want that.”


Ryan Wilson of CBSSports.com points out that Toomer also said back in the day that he’d rather have Tony Romo over his former teammate/two-time Super Bowl champion Eli Manning.

“If you want to say you’re Mr. Religious and all of that, have a clean record,” Toomer said. “Don’t say all of that stuff if you know there’s stuff that might come back. Those are the things that, when I look at him, I just think hypocrisy.”

Geez. Is someone still upset about Super Bowl XXXV?

    “If you want to say you’re Mr. Religious and all of that, have a clean record,”. Okay, I recognize that religion isn’t taught in schools, but really? Has Toomer never heard of Jesus, His crucifixion, etc? A clean record?? NONE of us has a clean record. We are human. That’s the whole point; Ray doesn’t care what you think of him – he knows about and has accepted the FREE gift offerred to every single one of us. Forgivemess of sins. A chance to embrace redemption and make our time on this earth matter. Ray is doing tons of incredible stuff with his time and money that is NOT public knowledge. And that’s fine with him – he isn’t doing it for kudos from Toomer or anyone else. I’m sad for him (Toomer) that he thinks a clean record is needed to feel God’s love. Poor soul.
