7:33 am
of the national guard is natural disaster. we knew they were huge storms. more than those states could handle by themselves. so, in concert with those states, their generals and they're mergecy planning managers, the national guard bureau started right away making contingency plans for other states to come and aid their relief efforts all throughout. so pennsylvania right off the bat, we're as heavily involved in the planning and we were able to send quite a few assets to texas and new to florida to help. >> when you say quite a few, more than 200 guard men were sent from our area we had more than 200 guard men go to texas for that effort. we have about 20 guard men in florida right now with our heavy lift, helicopters doing relief efforts down around the florida keys. >> that is crucial because i know we have video of the rescues but because of the water. we have not seen something like this in years, and years. but there is no way to get to these people. that is why it is so crucial to have these helicopter. >> lou at the extensive flooding in both areas, from
7:34 am
both of those storms, the only way to get in and out, to provide relief, to provide rescue was through rotary aircraft. so national guard of course has a huge helicopter capability. we were able to get those down into the texas area down in the florida area. we are able to get the relief where it was needed. some of those towns and solve those small villages cut off if you weren't putting a helicopter in there you weren't get anything kind of heavy supplies in there. >> or even just being rescued in general. >> yes. >> we have seen some of the videos of the damage and of the flooding, and it is just amazing to see, you know, what you guys are dogging out there sometimes you cannot tell if someone is there, or not and just trying to get to them. >> that is the, you know, it is a disaster, and, a lot of times it just whether it is first responders, police, fire , guard man, other service members sometimes it takes going door to door to make sure everybody is okay.
7:35 am
we will do whatever is necessary as long as it takes to make sure that our fellows citizens and our other communities are safe. >> when you say as long as it takes, we have been talking about some of the damage, they say it may take years to recover from this. for some of our guys sent from our area does that mean when you say as long as it takes do you mean as long as it takes. >> yes, we will be there as long as the mission requires us. and we are already doing contingency plans for other things. the rescue was first phase. recovery is part of the second phase. rebuilding f guard assets are needed and they need our engineers and equipment to help do that, we are ready to respond and we will there been for the fellow citizens of the united states. >> we are so grateful. thank you so much. we appreciate all that you do. we are thinking of you guys especially as you talk about another hurricane that is coming up. it is that time of the year, it that is season. >> it is hurricane season. a perfect example of that was two of our crew where is down

7:49 am
tuesday. and then wednesday, of next week. mike and alex, what is going on out there? are we having a party or something? you can call it that. >> party or pep rally. >> that was kind of dull, just to start. we are trying to drum up some support for the eagles. >> yes. >> go. >> ♪ >> okay, that is good, i have a headache. by the way, carson wentz stayed in philadelphia to play drums right here, and then he will fly out to kansas city after this thanks, carson for being here. >> absolutely. >> you forgot your 11, it is double zero. >> matt's here, g is here. >> is what up, mike. >> cheerleaders are here. >> yes. >> do we have eagles fans.
7:50 am
>> yes. >> okay. the fans are here, that is for sure. >> alex, the eagles are in kansas city to meet andy reid. >> it is like we have been calling it this guys, the student faces the teacher. what do you think. >> i think that is a lot of it you know andy reid wants to win this game. he does not want to lose to doug pederson. on the other hand doug would like nothing better then to go out there at the end of the game and you give that cordial thing and wink and maybe elbow in the ribs for and i. it is a big game. it means a lot to both teams. eag would also love to get off to a two-zero start. it would put them in great position, this is a big game. it is a tough one though. you're playing down there. it is one of the loudest stadiums in the season. they are very loud. of course, you are playing an outstanding team with an explosive offence and outstanding defense. they will be tough to beat. >> mie, was talking about carson wentz here. it is carson wentz verse alex
7:51 am
smith. >> okay. >> matt, let's do the running game and the passing game, alex, great game against the patriots. >> you look at that game kansas city looked like a super bowl contender. they will have their hands full with kareem hunt and ty rick hill a lot of speed and weapons on that kansas city owe even if. where eagles have one advantage that is defensive line, four sacks, four turnovers with the redskins last week. fletcher cox, tim journigan, brandon graham, if they can get kind of pressure on alex smith then they did against cousins they will give them a chance to win. alex smith is more mobile, gets rid of the ball quicker. they have their handful. this team can play for a super bowl out of the afc. >> everybody hang around. feel free to cheer or boo the predictions, okay. >> okay. >> see you. >> turnovers is the different of the game, mike, whoever takes care of the football will win. team that turns the ball over will lose. thing about alex smith is, he
7:52 am
is very could be servetive. they call them check down charlie because he throws short passes. he takes care of the football. carson has got to take care of the ball. one of the things i see in him now as a young quarterback sometimes he is a little careless with that football. >> g, did you talk to nelson agholor in the off season. he has confidence. >> i wore my u.s.c. hat up there. >> yeah it gave him some confidence. >> nelson is in a great spot because if you think back to last year this offence funnel through zach ertz and jordan matthews. it is middle of the field. carson loves throwing in the middle. nelson agholor six catches on eight targets. zach ertz eight catches on eight targets. they are 29 focal point of offence. >> you have to take care of the football. it will be loud. the crowd noise, messes with the owe even if. very, very loud. i don't know if these people can be loud though. >> can you be loud.
7:53 am
>> yes. >> i don't know if that is a good thing. >> yes. >> today, eagles will have all of that noise, they have had split all week so they will get used to the noise because owe even if a lot of times you are trying to talk and communicate, and guys don't hear because of all of the noise, and it messes up an owe even if. >> i talked to torey smith about this. he said there are times you feel your helmet ringing out split is so loud and in seattle, that is notoriously one ofthe loudest stadiums in the league. kansas city beat that by 30 death bells. it will be loud, it will be a hostile environment. chiefs are good at home. >> i used to work in television in kansas city, arrow head is unreal. >> very loud. >> are you ready for predictions. >> yes. >> here we go. >> can our d beat their o, and vice verse, g. cobb, is what final score. >> i think you're looking at a tight game, it will go down to the wire, i think kansas city
7:54 am
is going to win. >> oh, come on. >> i want eagles to win but it will go down to the wire but i pick kansas city but eagles will have a chance to win it. i see a close game, something like 27-23. >> i think it is a close game. is there just too much talent on owe even if. i like the chiefs 34-27. >> the chiefs. >> both of you, really. >> both of you. >> i didn't mean it. >> all right. >> eagles cheer, do you want to start it. >> e-a-g-l-e-s eagles. >> ♪
