Frank Gore Told ESPN's First Take Eagles "Didn't Want To Play No More"

The comeback put together in Philadelphia last Sunday by the San Francisco 49ers won't be forgotten by Niners fans (or Eagles fans for that matter) for a long, long time. And when given the chance to reflect on the win during an interview on ESPN's First Take, running back Frank Gore said that the Niners essentially beat the will to play out of the Eagles, to the point that they essentially threw in the towel.

"I think playing that second half and the way we came out, the Eagles didn't want to play no more...We just kept pounding and kept pounding and making plays and we kind of knocked the fight out of them," Gore said.

To say an NFL team quit on themselves before the final whistle says a lot about how they're coached, possibly signaling that Andy Reid is losing his grip with the squad formerly known as the "dream team." Gore finished the day with 127 yards and the game-winning touchdown, moving San Francisco to 3-1 on the season and the Eagles to 1-3.
