Several people are gonna burn me at the stake for this, but...
Jon Beason will become better than Ray Lewis ever was. To hell with any of you who would think different.
I love Beason as much as anyone, but this statement is insane.
Ray Lewis in his prime was the best middle linebacker this league has ever seen. I know Beason is an outstanding player, but he doesn't have the natural talent to be that type of player.
Having said that, I believe Beason is a perinnial probowl player, that is currently and will remain to be the heart and soul of this team.
