Well Ray Lewis - who is one of the greatest team leaders thee are - said he did not become a leader UNTIL he won his first Super Bowl.
He said that up until then he was just a follower. It's noteworthy since many here have said that Dallas needs leaders to get the big dance and win it, but Ray Lewis is basically saying that leadership is not what made him a Super Bowl winner, but rather that winning the Super Bowl made him a leader.
Theres a lot of wisdom and irony - in that!
The flaw here is that not all things are equal in this league. To assume because Ray Lewis thinks he was not a leader that every time it goes down like that is ridiculous.
Sorry, but one size does not fit all.
And as someone said, there were leaders on that team.
And on the defense, the leader we truly have is Lee and he has been on the sidelines a lot.
