Kevin Curtis will enter his third season with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009. He signed a six-year deal worth $32 million in hopes of providing McNabb with a No. 1 wide receiver. If I had the opportunity to interview Kevin Curtis, here's what I would ask him:

  1. After high school, you started your college career in the NJCAA (junior college) at Snow College. Did it ever bother you that you were never highly recruited to a high Division-I football school?
  2. How did it feel to lead the nation in receptions during your junior year at Utah State?
  3. Despite your accomplishments at Utah State, did you ever wish that you had the opportunity to play at a big-named Division-I school?
  4. How did it feel to play alongside Pro Bowl wide receivers Issac Bruce and Torry Holt? Do you feel that these guys helped establish you into the type of player you are today?
  5. What made you sign with the Philadelphia Eagles? Did it have anything to do with their lack of a No. 1 wide receiver?
  6. In your first season with the Eagles, you became only the second wide receiver in the Donovan McNabb-era to record 1,000 yards receiving. Did this make you feel that you were the wideout he had always been looking for?
  7. Last season, you suffered a sports hernia injury that forced you to miss the beginning of the season. How do you feel about the emergence of rookie DeSean Jackson as a wide receiver, considering it may not have happened if it wasn't for your injury?
  8. When the Eagles entered the final week of the regular season, the only way the team would have a shot at making the playoffs would be if Oakland beat Tampa Bay. When the Raiders shocked the Buccaneers on their own turf, giving the Eagles a chance at a wildcard berth, what was the excitement like in the Eagles locker room?
  9. As a wide receiver in the NFL, what would you say is your biggest weakness? How will you work on this weakness in 2009?
  10. This season, the Eagles are being picked by some analysts as favorites to win the NFC. With you, Jackson, and rookie Jeremy Maclin at the wide receiver position, some analysts say McNabb finally has the weapons on offense he has always wanted. If Jackson and Maclin play at the No. 1 and No. 2 spot, how would you feel about playing as a No. 3 wideout again?
