♪ >> the eagles continue to get ready for their toughest test of the year on the road and it's at san francisco. actually in santa clara. now i'm told it's unlike until linebacker michael kendricks will play again this week. three backup players on the offensive line. that makes it tough as well. last sunday the redskins chris baker clearly took a cheap shot at nick foles. now the rule seems simple to meche you cannot hit a quarterback after a change of possession and it appeared he through an interception on the play but tonight i got multiple responses from two people in the nfl office that is made a convoluted excuse and the nfl had no fine or suspension of the don't tell the eagles it wasn't a cheap shot. >> it was cheap shot.
as you can see, he look at nick before he hit him. >> it was cheap shot. >> my understanding was you just can't hit starting quarterback that hard. you know, unless you hit them perfectly while they're throwing the ball. so i was surprised to see that. >> now you know you can hit quarterback and nothing will happen to you because you've already seen it happen. >> no, no, i'm going to play with the -- whatever the rules is i'm playing within the rules. >> okay. >> because i want to keep my money in my pock. >> tell me if tom brady or peyton manning is hit the guy doesn't get suspended. >> eagles offense is is averaging 33 points game in the first three games. somewhat amazing lesean mccoy averaging 2.9 yards a carry. the other teams are obviously trying to stop mccoy but does shady see any other problems? >> we can't call it. just got to keep, you know, fighting and getting at it and hopefully, you know, the passing game opens some things up up and that's kind of threat back off a little bit. >> one thing i know about lesean
everybody loves he wants to win. i know he knows we're three three-zero. he's actually had more carries this year in the first three games than he had last year. i think obviously the same five guys blocking for him is part of to do with it. >> more on the eagles and 49ers coming up this sunday at 11:00 on fox 29 "game day live". i will be live in santa clara. then it's fox nfl sunday at noon followed by our double header, packers and bears at 1:00. eagles and 49er at 4:25. >> the phillies not in good spot playing out the season and not even in position to play spoiler again the possible play off team but tonight starter becomes the top winner on the staff. this is ridiculous actually let's go to -- this is ridiculous. you go to a ballgame, right. >> that guy has good company. they're mind less people teching everybody else. >> don't put it in the microwa microwave. >> okay. kyle kendrick had three hits tonight. knocked in run. and marlon byrd knocks in what proved to be the winning run in the eighth inning phillies win
it two-one. kyle kendrick has 10 wins, that's the tops on this wonderful phillies staff. and the phillies will probably sign him for next year. and that will be another mistake in the signing. >> thank you howard. >> remember to watch tmz at 11:00. we're back here at 4am for the fox 29 morning news and "go
