Ratliff: 'We fought like hell for (W. Phillips)'

This is sort of a strange quote from Cowboys DE Jay Ratliff, but we’ll print it (or post it on the interwebs) nonetheless.

On the just-fired former Cowboys coach Wade Phillips, Ratliff told reporters (via the San Antonio Express-News ), “We fought like hell for him. Things just didn't go our way.”

That’s an interesting theory, especially if you watched Dallas lose badly to Jacksonville and Green Bay, acting much of the time like it wasn’t interested in playing at all. Hell, Jaguars QB David Garrard basically said as much after he beat the Cowboys.

Dallas backup QB Jon Kitna had a slightly different take on the matter.

“Anytime the head coach gets fired, it's an indictment of the team,” Kitna said. “I hope it serves as a wake-up call for guys. When they start making decisions like that and things like that happen, it's just a prelude of things to come as far as changes on the team.”

Either way, interim coach Jason Garrett has to hope his team doesn’t fight like hell for him as well. Apparently, that level of effort gets head coaches fired.

I like Jay Ratliff as a player and he seems like a great guy.  But I can't honestly believe this.  Maybe he played like hell.  I can believe that.  But everybody?  Not so much.
