Ray Lewis says health is key to Ravens' chances

Ray Lewis recently took time away from working out, screaming and eating his mom's turkey spaghetti to chat with Yahoo! Sports. In a wide-ranging interview, Lewis talked about Under Armour, his martial-arts-heavy workout routine, his longevity and his legacy. You'll probably be relieved to hear that he didn't question the Marc Bulger signing or request a new contract.

Lewis reluctantly touched on the Ravens' Super Bowl chances when asked about them. "I don't know — so much has to happen," said God's linebacker. "You can only play one game at a time, and if you jump to the Super Bowl [conclusion] too quick, it won't happen."

Lewis liked what the team did in the offseason, but said the Ravens will have to "get to the end of the year completely healthy" to win another Lombardi Trophy.

"Are the additions that we picked up good ones? Absolutely. We picked up some quality people," Lewis said. "But at the same time, if you look at the Saints last year, I think they had one injury that was reported [through the whole year — left tackle Jammal Brown].

"If we can get into January and February with something like that, I think we have a good chance. But we just have to go into our opener and try to get that out of the way. Week after week, just bang 60 minutes out, and at the end of the day, we'll see where we are."
