I think Ellerbe is turning into a star. Have to bring him back. I'd honestly be fine letting McClain walk. I was not impressed with him this year at all. Not sure what kind of cap hit that would be to cut him, which I'm sure we won't anyway.
He is one of the greatest but I will not miss the networks focus on that dance at all.
Couple things that have popped up are saying all the time with family while he was hurt made the decision. I know the rest of the AFC North wishes him well and are not sad to see him go. His HOF speech will probably be awesome.
Edit: Hopefully not too many folks are following Wilbo on Twitter.

Not worth it, it's what he wants. Let him be.
Alec Ogletree*, ILB, Georgia
Height: 6-3. Weight: 236.
Projected 40 Time: 4.61.
Projected Round (2012): 1-2.
12/15/12: Ogletree was suspended for four games at the start of the year because of a failed drug test. He has been excellent since coming back to the lineup. The junior has been a play-maker as a run defender and is always around the ball. Ogletree has 98 tackles, 8.5 tackles for a loss, two sacks an interception and five passes broken up in his nine games.
8/31/12: Ogletree really came on in the second half of the 2011 season. In the final seven games, he produced 52 tackles with 7.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks and two forced fumbles. Ogletree broke his foot in the season opener against Boise State, and that caused him to miss the next seven games. He really stood out with big games against Georgia Tech, LSU and Michigan State.
Ogletree had 34 tackles as a freshman in 2010. He is very fast and instinctive. The junior has the frame to get bigger and stay as a middle linebacker in the NFL. Ogletree has a lot of upside and it wouldn't be surprising if he pushed his stock into first-round consideration after the 2012 or 2013 season.
Kevin Minter*, ILB, LSU
Height: 6-2. Weight: 242.
Projected 40 Time: 4.63.
Projected Round (2012): 1-2.
12/15/12: Minter has been an animal for LSU and is the team's most consistent defender this season. He had 20 tackles and two sacks against Florida despite missing some time during the game with an injury. Minter has 111 tackles with 13.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks, five passes broken up, an interception and a forced fumble.
Minter is a good tackler with plus instincts. He also is a hard hitter and never hesitates to get physical. Minter had 61 tackles as a sophomore in 2011.

Nobody cares what failed athlete has to say against GOAT athlete...
Bears will snap one of those guys up before the Ravens pick, imo. Probably will be MLB by committee in Baltimore next year if no one knocks their socks off.
Eddie George would be wise to stay away from ESPN and the NFL Network tonight.
I've seen C.J. Mosley from Alabama mocked to us as well. Seems like an athletic kid who just flies all over the field.
I would be happy with any of those 3.
*edit - nevermind, Mosley is returning to Alabama

was on the 50 about 25 rows up for this SD game. This to me was THE best Ray Lewis hit of his career. That was one of the greatest endings to an away game ever.
sad day. most inspirational player of my lifetime. completely owned and dominated the team. a real leader.
that crap in Atlanta is so unfortunate - I really think he could have ended up a Senator or Governor or something given his amazing skill set.
Fair enough, I was just curious because Wilbon has a knack for being an idiot
That was the Clowney hit before Clowney.
Bowers not Wilbon
Not Wilbon. Will Bowers.
I'm quite sure Wilbon loves Ray.
Honestly I'm pretty disappointed in Willbo's efforts here. That's all you got?
Anddddd I'm an idiot!
I thought for sure Wilbon would have something dumb to say like always

Lol, obvious troll is obvious. Though it doesn't take much to get the majopas of the world fired up.
as a bengals fan, respected the hell out of his play
respected him even more after i learned he was helping the Baltimore PD get in shape:
Yeah that was pretty weak tbh
I have great respect for Ray Lewis, but as a Steeler fan, I am just happy we won't have to face him anymore. He earned all the respect in the world on the field and with his ability to speak motivationally. I'll like him even more retired though.
Had a friend make a post on Facebook about Ray, to which someone responded in the comments "He was a great player... the poor man's London Fletcher", to which he was immediately attacked. He then posted the career numbers, and I must say, based solely on numbers, the argument could be made.
I don't agree with it or think London stacks up to Ray when it comes to impact on the game, but just to start the discussion and collect my down votes:
------------------------Combined Tackles / Solo Tackles / Assists / Sack / INT / FF
London Fletcher --------1,546 ----------------1,056 ---------490 -----34 ---18 ---17
Ray Lewis---------------- 1,279 -----------------928 ----------351 ----40.5 --31 ---16
Ask yourself this: As good as London Fletcher is, has he ever been feared? Did he every chase running backs into retirement? Did he have game-changing abilities?
The thing that I will always regret with Lewis is the one year he was really dominating people, he got hurt early on during a night game against the Browns. He was never that kind of terror again.
now see, this is how you troll correctly. majopa should take notes.
