Ray Lewis Tells The Ravens Not To Touch The Lombardi Trophy

17 years later, Ray Lewis’ influence and leadership on the Baltimore Ravens is stronger than ever. The future Hall of Famer is focused on winning one more game, the biggest game for him in 13 years, and he’s making sure everyone is the locker room has their sights on that goal.

According to Ryan Mink of the team’s official website, when CBS’s crew came to The Castle on Wednesday to shoot head shots and pregame interviews, Lewis told them to put away an non-engraved Lombardi Trophy that was brought as a prop.

CBS Associate Director Cory Fishman said Ray Lewis laid down an order that nobody was going to be shot with the trophy. Not touching it, not around it, NOTHING.

Lewis later told the network (not these exact words … and believe me, they’re powerful words that you’ll want to tune in to hear) that they hadn’t earned the Lombardi yet. So they didn’t deserve it.

I love it. Keep these guys focused. They’ve made it, but they haven’t won it yet. One more game.

    I’m a big believer in not jinxing things, so I think this is a great move deciding not to pose with the Trophy!
     
    That said, I wish just one of my approximately 219 calls to 1.888.848.BIRD had been answered yesterday so I couldda got better Opening Day tickets than the crappy seats I got this morning…

    I am a believer. I believe Ray and company will have plenty of chances to pose with the Lombardi around 11:00 Eastern time, 3 February.

       I can’t see Capernick beating us…I can see Gore tearing up the defense, the way Spy use to tear up sandboxes back in the ’70′s.

      @JimmyDundalk
      Did they have a problem finding it or did Mystery man let it go?
       When they touched it , did it immediately go limp?
