Quote: "Life ain't about what people see on the outside, life is about what comes from the inside."
After the passing of former teammate Steve McNair, Ray Lewis gave a moving speech at his funeral. Despite only playing with him for a couple seasons (2006-2007), the respect level the two had for each other was clearly evident with his words and emotions. Lewis vowed to be there for McNair's family and let them know how exemplary a man the late QB really was.
