BALTIMORE, MD.- Ravens leader, Ray Lewis reminded the team this week to stay focused on the task at hand. NBCsports said that" Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that CBS brought the Lombardi Trophy to the Ravens Training facility for promotional pictures. Most teams take pictures with the trophy for the broadcast.
However,this was not a popular idea with the 17 year veteran. Lewis explained the reason is because" yeah you see everybody wants to have you take pictures with it,"Lewis said. "Like I told my team, don't ever take pictures with nothing that's not yours, nothing that you haven't earned." When we hold that Lombardi next Sunday, you've earned it when you touch it..."
Lewis adds, "The real prize is actually going to win the Super Bowl."Moreover,"It's great to get there, don't get me wrong, but to win it is something special."
The Baltimore Ravens stated that they already "have a plan for players' curfews and free time." Coach John Harbaugh mentioned to the media that players should enjoy the experience, but have their focus on game preparation as well.
With the AFC Championship having a 48 hour grace period, the Ravens have work to be done and preparation as the fans in Baltimore will send their team off on the road to Superbowl XLVII.
