I think there are plenty of footballs (also, Greg Lewis can have a seat)

With the ostensible return of Kevin Curtis and Reggie Brown to the Eagles' lineup this weekend (though there's still plenty of time for Brown to strain a groin before Sunday), talk has turned to the Eagles', hold on, deep breath, suddenly deep and talented receiving corps.
With the what now?
Are we actually using phrases like "There are enough balls to go around"? Really? Because of a win against the Niners? What about the two weeks of lousy against the Skins and Bears? Personally, I think the Eagles' receivers are just fine -- certainly not elite, but definitely competent when healthy. But this isn't the 1992 Dream Team; I expect most fans will be content if the Eagles can muster up just a few big plays from their wideouts. I certainly don't think we have to worry about hurting these guys' feelings.
Of course, a healthy Curtis means that someone among Baskett, Avant and Greg Lewis is likely going to sit this week. Um, again, I don't think this is an advanced-placement-level question: the answer is Greg Lewis. I guess he and his 172 lbs. play a little special teams, but so do brand-new linebackers.
Of course, the larger question here is what happens to young Master DeSean. I really hope that having Curtis and Brown healthy doesn't land him on the bench, and instead is used "as an excuse to find him deep in single coverage." That'd be sweet.
