Feels Like A Dave Spadaro Article

As I type this post, I know people will instantly give it the label of a Spadaro-type piece, that I need to take off the green beer goggles and put down my glass of green kool-aid.

And yes I know that when looking at the whole picture the Eagles are still lacking a number one receiver.

But...Kevin Curtis does come awfully close to filling that void, just look at the below 2007 numbers and the WRs he is ahead of. And we can't forget, A.J. Feeley was throwing him passes for three games!

Receiving Yards
Curtis: 1,110 yards
Better Numbers Than: Steve Smith, Plaxico Burress

Yards Per Catch
Curtis: 14.4
Better Numbers Than: Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, Roy Williams

Yards Per Game
Curtis: 69.4
Better Numbers Than: Steve Smith, Plaxico Burress, Isaac Bruce

Yards After Catch
Curtis: 4.7
Better Numbers Than: Terrell Owens, Reggie Wayne, Braylon Edwards

Ok, so his 6 touchdowns place him 22nd among wide receivers. But the rest of the numbers stack up nicely when compared to other #1 receivers. Good chance the numbers improve this year with a healthy McNabb and another year in the Eagles system.

Just throwing this out there...
