I watched Ray Lewis do his final dance as a player on the field at M&T Bank Stadium immediately after the final play of the game ("Ray's day," Jan. 7). That was great to see. He is leaving the game on his own terms. I hope his head and his heart are in the right place, and that 20-plus years of hard-hitting football has left his brain in reasonably good condition. Baltimore's fans, individually and collectively, need to be aware of warning signs of ill health and be prepared to take better care of Ray Lewis than San Diego took care of our retired star linebacker, Junior Seau.

We may never know exactly why Junior Seau died, of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest, at his home in San Diego on May 2. Suicide is commonly the result of depression, and perhaps Mr. Seau had a mood disorder that had nothing to do with his 20-year football career in which he played hundreds of games, made thousands of tackles, and hit - was hit - many more times than that. On the other hand, a career like Mr. Seau's - a linebacker with a reputation as a hard hitter and a "warrior" on virtually every defensive play, using his body as a weapon, and "playing hurt" - almost certainly included dozens of concussions, whether or not they were reported to his team or to the league.

Tennessee at Miami Time: 1 p.m. Trends: The Dolphins are typically fast starters, but this season might be the exception. Losing RB Ricky Williams and WR David Boston rocked an offense that essentially has replaced them with Lamar Gordon and Marty Booker. This is basically the same Miami defense, however, that was shredded by the Titans, 31-7, in Nashville last November. Tennessee quarterback Steve McNair is 0-2 on the road against Miami with four interceptions and no touchdowns. Attraction: RB Chris Brown gets his first crack at replacing departed Titans hero Eddie George after a solid preseason.
