Ray Lewis is my number one favorite NFL player and undeniably one of the greatest linebackers in the league.  If I was ever given the chance to interview him one day it would be a great honor and dream come true. Below are some of the questions I would ask in a feature interview.

First of all, I would like to say thank you for being here and congratulations on a highly successful season.

Question One: How do you feel the 2008-2009 season went for the Baltimore Ravens?

Thankfully, you were re-signed with the team Ray, Terrell Suggs franchised and there was a lot of speculation about what could have occurred or may still occur with the team and possible moves that are yet to be made.

Matt Stover was not re-signed, McAlister was released, Bart Scott and Jim Leonhard went to the Jets. Lorenzo Neal is gone as well.

Question Two: How do you feel those moves as well as others that were made may affect the team in the upcoming season and overall?

Rex Ryan is now the Head Coach of the New York Jets. That left big shoes to fill here in Baltimore.

Question Three: Do you think the team will be able to easily adjust to Rex Ryan's successor, Greg Mattison?

Question Three-A: Because I am sure you had a close relationship, how were you personally affected by Ryan's leaving the Ravens?

Your team has always performed well in the draft and Ozzie Newsome does an amazing job. With that said...

Question Four: How do you think the team did on draft picks?

Question Four-A: Would you have made different selections in the draft?

I know you are the emotional and spiritual leader of this team, especially on defense. But if you were the Head Coach...

Question Five: Would you make any changes on offense and defense and why?

It may be too early to say but

Question Six: What do you see happening in the 2009-2010 season for the Ravens?

Last but not least, you have had an incredible 13 year, going on 14 year career in the NFL. Numerous victories, countless phenomenal plays that you have made and the list could go on.

Question Seven: What are some of the most memorable or favorite moments of your career?

I look forward to the day you get inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame and I know that is bound to happen in the future. But for now I anticipate the start of the season and to watch and see what the men of purple and black have in store. Good luck to you and your team and thank you for joining me today.
