    It was Phillip Tanner that delivered the blow that ended Ray Lewis' career.

    Tanner talked trash at Lewis after bowling him over. Now he's the answer to a trivia question as his own career is getting iffy itself.

    He's going to give it a go, but I don't think he was planning on retiring yet. That's what he said earlier this season.

    Best linebacker I've ever seen.

    That Tanner play was when Ray finally conceded and took himself out. He was reduced to trying to tackle Tanner with one arm. If you watch closely, Ray's arm was dangling several plays before that.

    If he's playing today, then Tanner didn't end his career. And it's a huge stretch to say that injury convinced Ray to retire. If so, he likely wouldn't be playing today.

    He has announced his retirement at the end of the season. He was likely waiting until the Ravens made it to the playoffs so he could go out on a high note. There's a chance that if the Ravens missed the playoffs, Ray may have given it another year. So if you combine that with the fact that he's on the field, his career isn't over yet.

    So yeah, considering how great he played in his final hurrah at home. Safe to say Tanner didn't end his career. And nothing to support Ray coming back next season had he not been injured this season. Not sure why you would even want to take credit for ending somebody's career. That is as bad as the idiot Skins fans hailing Arrington for his hit on Troy.
