Nose tackle Jay Ratliff, who has talked to the media only once this season, called the Star-Telegram late Friday afternoon to make it known that he was not giving up and he was not going to let his teammates give up on themselves and embattled coach Wade Phillips.
"I'm going to continue to fight," Ratliff said. "I'm fighting for me. I'm fighting for my teammates and I'm fighting for Coach Phillips. He is not going to give up. I'm not going to stop fighting."
