If you think Ray Lewis is going to cut his old team any slack in his new role as an NFL commentator, think again.

For starters, he's saying the Ravens won't be repeating as Super Bowl champions.

"It's going to be very hard, after you lose that much chemistry," Lewis told USA Today this week. "But who knows? It's unpredictable, as always.

"Hopefully, they try to pull enough together, use their youth and try to make a run. But it's hard to try that formula. That formula usually doesn't work."

Did you note the use of "they" to refer to the Ravens? To hear Lewis call the team he led for 17 years "they," doesn't that tug at your purple-and-black heart?

Oh, and in case anyone is concerned that Lewis is struggling to try to find things to fill his days as a retired football player, there's no need to worry. He'll be just as busy as he wants to be.

"It was never like, 'What am I going to do?'" he said. "It was more, 'What will I not do?'" I had all these opportunities coming from so many different directions. And I told my team, 'We're going to go slow, take our time, and get involved with the right people.'"
