Rex Ryan: 'We're not dead. We ain't quitting'

The New York Jets aren't rolling over and giving up.

Although the Jets have lost five games in a row, lost cornerback Dee Milliner and guard Brian Winters for the rest of the season with injuries, coach Rex Ryan is sticking to his guns.

Now, the Jets play the New England Patriots on Thursday night.

“The message is pretty simple,” Ryan said,. Hey, we might be counted out. We’re not dead. We’re going to fight our tails off. It’s a resilient bunch. As I told our team, a team that doesn’t quit is hard to beat. If you’re fighting a guy that never quits, he’s hard to beat. Our guys, we ain’t quitting. As we say, we’ve just begun to fight.”
