Ratliff calls Cowboys matchup “just another game”

The artist formerly known as Jay Ratliff said he’s not getting in any back-and-forth with his old team this week.

Now going by Jeremiah Ratliff, he made his Bears debut last week and had an assisted tackle, which is more than the Cowboys got out of him before his ugly departure this season.

It’s just another game. It’s just football,” Ratliff said, via Michael Wright of ESPN.com. “I don’t get caught up in all that silly rivalry stuff or some payback. The thing is we’re here to win, and we’re going to give every effort to do that.”

Of course, his old team has been uncharacteristically quiet about his departure (which is likely setting the stage for legal action) as well.

Ratliff signed with the Bears in November, and made his debut against the Vikings, playing 23 snaps. They’re hoping he can continue to do more, to try to shore up the league’s worst run defense.

“I thought he played well,” Bears coach Marc Trestman said. “We had him at 20-something snaps. We stayed true to that. I heard him come off a couple of times and say, ‘Let me stay in my rhythm.’ He felt he was mixing it up in there. So we felt pretty good that he’ll be able to play much longer this week.”

He’ll certainly be motivated, which the Cowboys would likely contend that he was not while there.

    He’s a poor mans Albert Haynesworth. So that really doesn’t say much.

    The Bears have owned the Cowboys the past few meetings.

    Not this time.

    I would think that Ratliff is giving the Bears information regarding the Cowboys’ line calls, audibles, etc, but who am I kidding – I know darn well that he was too busy faking injuries and spending his money to waste time on anything football-related while he was in Dallas.

    We believe him as much as a Von Miller denial that he didn’t try to cheat the drug test.
