"Ray-Ray" on "Reggie! Reggie!"

Here's an interesting tidbit from none other than Ravens' middle linebacker and heart-taker Ray Lewis about the Saints' star sophomore, Reggie Bush:

"You can be the most athletic person in the world, you can be good or you can be great. Great are the ones who go beyond. That's the thing these kids don't care about these days. Why would they care about it? The business of football isn't set up like that. Why would they go and say let me go push myself. When we got ready to go play Reggie Bush last year I was like, 'Cute kid. Love him but he isn't ready for this because he isn't built for this yet.'

"It's not supposed to be pretty but everyone today wants to be the fastest, the quickest, the prettiest. It should be, there's one football and I'll find that football by any means necessary."

Lewis was going on this old-school diatribe to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer recently. You can read more about it here at http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/7095056.

In their late October matchup last season, by the way, the Ravens knocked Bush from the game in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. The rookie star finished the game with 16 yards rushing on 5 carries and 5 yards receiving on 4 receptions.

Guess Ray wasn't all that impressed, was he? Sounds like he still isn't.
