Things couldn't possibly get worse for the Eagles at the WR position. According to this report, Kevin Curtis will undergo surgery for a sports hernia. He's going to be out for some time. At this point, we have to start hoping that Anquan Boldin will make enough noise to force his way out of Arizona.

How grim has the situation gotten? Well, if the season started today, DeSean Jackson would probably be the #1 receiver and starting opposite him would be either Jason Avant, Hank Baskett or Greg Lewis. Your guess is as good as mine as to who would get the nod. At this point, if they can sign Joe Horn, he's probably a starter, and that's not a good thing.

If the Eagles can't pull off some kind of last-minute miracle trade this offense will sputter. Westbrook will get every last bit of attention from opposing defenses, safeties will cheat up, corners will have it easy. Things are not looking good. Curtis may not be a true #1 receiver, but he was the best they had. He's going to be missed, and the Eagles really need to fill this hole. A hole that's been glaring since T.O. left town, but never more so than right now.
