Ray Lewis gets a lot of credit for being a profoundly expressive motivator. But take away the preacher effect and menacing face paint and you're left with a crazy person speaking in cliches and gibberish. Mostly gibberish.

Before Super Bowl XLVII, he addressed his 2000 homicide case by saying, "To the family, if you knew, if you really knew the way God works, he don’t use people who commits anything like that for His glory. No way. It’s the total opposite." In one grammatically butchered sound bite, Lewis managed to marginalize a grieving family, ordain himself as a prophet and, rather inexplicably, endear himself to the press and public for it.
