The Caw: Newtown Puts Football In Perspective

Posted Dec 18, 2012

Ray Rice, Ray Lewis and other Ravens expressed their emotions after the Sandy Hook shooting.


It’s easy to get so wrapped up in the Ravens’ three-game losing streak that you lose perspective of what real pain feels like.

That’s what families in Newtown, Conn., are going through right now.

And that’s what running back Ray Rice was thinking about late Sunday night following the Ravens’ 34-17 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Rice was not happy with some of the tweets he was getting after the game, and I don’t blame him for his response:

Rice is one of just a few players who have taken to Twitter to express their thoughts on the tragedy.

Linebacker Ray Lewis posted his thoughts on Facebook Friday afternoon:

“We must wake up, the time is now evil is now attacking our kids. Lord please show us another way, why so much silence when so much pain exists everyday. We must come together, lets not let this be just another Tragedy. The only way to do it is together, if it takes a village to raise 1 child then it's gonna take everything we have to save our children. Lets start having real conversation to make our world a better place. Lord my Prayer today is please help thru this Storm. Me and my family will be Praying for the entire Sandy Hook Elementary School, you're not alone.”

A number of other players also expressed their emotions about the shootings on Friday.
