5:53 pm
tom brady you know the guy expected to play after sitting out new england' first game last week. howard eskin dave spadaro expected to be there. >> i'm here with a brilliant mind of football that would be dave spadaro philadelphia and obviously part of our pre-game show on sundays. dave, here in foxboro in the middle of nowhere the eagles and patriotpate a if the ballgame. what do you think the eagles in the second game should try to accomplish? i think this week of practice with the patriots built confidence in the eagles after year when tom brady came down to the novacare complex and was perfect for one day of practice. they feel very confident going into game two. so i think they build off the week of practice, they work it on third -- they weren't good on third downs against the bears. i think against the passing game they want to go out there and slow, you don't shut down tom brady if they can him down. without nolan car recall they'll
5:54 pm
feel great defensively. this is great game to evaluate the dee finance seive backs again the quarterback like tom brady who gets the ball out so quickly. who is so accurate such great timing. keep it vanilla. remember the preseason. the objective of the preseason is not to win the games. it's to get the best 53 men for your roster. they're still in the evaluation process. >> you're coming off game one, and -- i think you probably feel the same way. nick foles i'm not worried about that. but don't you have to see something better or how much do you have to see from nick foles? was ton see the offense get into a rhythm and put some points on the board the first team offense needs to score points here and keep the ball and make decisions. what i think the formula will be against nick foles is pressure. they're going to come with the blitz. these teams are now seeing a little blueprint here. how will nick handle the pressure in the pocket? and i think that's what you want to see in this game. >> okay. the eagles and those cheaters, the new england patriots -- all right, cary williams. >> they were cheaters. that's right, they were. >> they were cheaters against
5:55 pm
those cheaters bill belicheck and the new england patriots that will be tonight. back to you, tom. >> coming up howard answer the question is it better or worse to cheat or worse to get caught different subject. phillies west coast road trip continues. phils are in san francisco for three games with the giants starting tonight. phillies lost the first two games of the trip both in los angeles and if you still care and still can look all the way down phillies are 53 and 68. a whopping 14 games out of first place in the national league east. the only hope they have these days comes every five days when cole hamels pitches. ham mims on the mound tonight. he wouldn't world series, been a world series mvp but the last five games might be the five game stretch of his career. how did c have they been? look at these number. 37 inning, three earned runs allowed. hamels averaged overstruck out an inning in that stretch. he's and unbelievable. phillies are three-two in those five games. they don't score any runs for
