At a level of skill never seen before? More bullshit. People always gave him more praise than he should get, and I think it's a bit of a shame that some of his teammates are/will get forgotten.
To who, people that don't follow football? Who gives a shit? And which players? They couldn't mention Rod Woodson enough that season, Reed and Suggs have both won DPOY awards playing next to him, Ngata has been considered for several years amongst the best linemen in football, the Ravens inducted both Peter Boulware and Michael McCrary into their Ring of Honor. Lewis is hardly the only guy to have good teammates around him. Lambert, Lanier, Nitschke, Singletary, Schmidt all had just as, if not more help. Way more in some cases, so considering they don't really even approach Lewis on film and couldn't play in the league today, the '**** does that make them?
