According to 49ers Running Back Frank Gore more than 2nd half 49er brilliance played a role in the 49ers comeback win Sunday vs Philadelphia. Gore thinks the self anointed “dream team” 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,” Gore said in an interview on ESPN’s “First Take.”
“We just kept pounding and kept pounding and making plays and we kind of knocked the fight out of them,”
Now I’m not claiming to have anymore insight than someone that was actually on the field playing. I was however in the stands and it didn’t look to me like the Eagles quit. In fact the Eagles did put together 3 nice drives during the 2nd half the problem was it only resulted in 3 pts as they missed 2 Field Goals.
To me the defense looked worn out and beaten by the 49ers Offensive Line and in the end Gore was too much to stop as he ran the ball down the Eagles throats on the last possession capping it off with a 12 yard TD run.
This is just another sign that the 49ers confidence is growing after a big win in Philadelphia. 49er fans are just hoping Gore and the 49ers running game can match their dominance vs the Bucs on Sunday at home.
*UPDATE* Michael Vick Responds to Gore
Michael Vick responded to Gore’s comments earlier this week that he felt the Eagles quit vs his 49ers as the team came roaring back in the 2nd half.
“I don’t think the team quit,” Vick said. “I think we put up the effort for all four quarters. I don’t know, maybe, I mean he can say that but we can’t dwell on last week, it’s over.”
