This, friends, is must-watch video. In an exclusive sitdown with Deion Sanders, Ray Lewis discusses how he maintains his high level of play, the Ravens’ standing in the AFC and what advice he would offer to the locker room if he were a member of the Cowboys.
“I don’t think it’s about what you say to the guys, I think it’s about fitting the pieces on what works,” Lewis said. “So you ask yourself, ‘Who is a Cowboy?’ When you turn on the film, who do you see really fighting?
“I don’t blame coaches for nothing that a player controls. It’s hard to blame a coach for effort. I can have a mental mistake, but when you’re talking about pure effort and then I turn on the film and I see somebody not running to the ball, not taking the hit, that’s the coach’s fault? That’s on me. If I’m the leader of that team, that’s on me.”
