Video: Ravens Still Inspired By Ray Lewis' Message

Posted Jan 16, 2013

Ray Lewis' speech after last year’s AFC championship fueled the Ravens to get back to this point.

The Ravens had just walked off the field at Gillette Stadium after suffering perhaps the most heartbreaking loss in franchise history.

That’s when Ray Lewis pulled his team together.

In an emotional message, Lewis told his teammates that he would return for another season, and challenged them to get back to work so that they could finish the job next year.

“We had a great leader pull us back together, and that was No. 52,” Ray Rice said at the starting of training camp. “Without him in that locker room at that moment, I don’t think the gelling would have come back. Ray Lewis brought us together as a team, and you’ll see a team come out here with pride.”

That speech fueled the Ravens to get back to the AFC championship, knocking on the door of the Super Bowl. And as they prepare to head back to New England for a rematch, Lewis’ message is still very much on the minds of some Ravens. Wide receiver Torrey Smith tweeted a link to the video Tuesday afternoon.

“This video reminds me of how we finished last year ... but also that life is bigger than football … it’s a blessing,” Smith tweeted.
