Ravens | Former player thinks Ray Lewis is setting wrong tone

Thu, 31 Jan 2013 15:03:53 -0800

Former New York Giants WR Amani Toomer said Baltimore Ravens LB Ray Lewis is setting the wrong tone for his team as the Super Bowl approaches, making it all about him and his retirement. "It's definitely all about him. Once a guy goes to the center of the field, goes into the victory formation on the last play of his last home game …" Toomer said "I just don't think the Giants or any organization I've ever been a part of, even growing up, would allow somebody to single themselves out like that. If you single yourself out after you make a play, that's one thing. But to walk out on the field reminds me of the WWE, like The Rock coming out. You're becoming a caricature of yourself. It's exhausting. I don't know why somebody would want that."

Cowboys | Jason Witten glad Tony Romo getting respect

Sat, 14 Jul 2012 06:29:25 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten said he is glad QB Tony Romo has received praise from observers, particularly former NFL WR Amani Toomer, who said Romo is a better quarterback than New York Giants QB Eli Manning. "I think he's an elite league quarterback," Witten said of Romo. "Many people have said that. I think that's great that Amani said that, but at the end of the day, Eli is a Super Bowl champ. He's won two out of the last five years. They're doing a lot of good things right up there. They're the poster boys of how you do it and not let adversity get in the way because of where they're at."

Cowboys | Tony Romo better than Eli Manning?

Sat, 07 Jul 2012 05:24:34 -0700

Former NFL WR Amani Toomer stood by his comments that Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is a better quarterback than New York Giants QB Eli Manning, his former teammate. "I love Eli, and I respect the hell out of him as a person," Toomer said. "But I have to do my job, and I have to look at him beyond what the perception is because the perception doesn't always go hand in hand with the reality." Statistically, Romo is better than Manning, according to Toomer. "I was all set - Romo's no good, he's a fourth-quarter choker - and then I started doing my job," Toomer said. "I started looking at the numbers. I started looking at the statistics. I started looking at the quarterback rating. And I was shocked. I was shocked at how good Tony Romo's statistics really were. This guy is really impressive."

I've seen it happen many, many times before to other players. It's part of the business. We have a disagreement. They have one opinion of me, I have another. When the relationship's good it's good, when it's not, it's not," Toomer said. Toomer is unhappy how the team phased him out of the offense at the end of the season.
