Gore: 'We knocked the fight out of them'

By Mike Sando

San Francisco 49ers fans should enjoy this one. Philadelphia Eagles fans, not so much.

"I think the Eagles, they didn't want to play no more," Gore said on a video clip I just saw on ESPN. "We kept pounding and kept pounding and making plays and we knocked the fight out of them."

It's too bad the 49ers and Eagles do not play again this season. San Francisco's 24-23 victory has already produced fines against Eagles defensive end Jason Babin and 49ers tackle Anthony Davis.

Gore carried for gains of 4, 8, 4, 5 and 5 yards on five successive plays as the 49ers ran out the clock, supporting his contention that his team pounded away and, just maybe, took the fight from the Eagles.
