Gore, Weaver, Curtis...

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

You have to believe the Eagles will get a heavy dose of 49ers RB Frank Gore, but Philadelphia's weakness, especially during the loss of LB Akeem Jordan, was their inability to cover a tight end. In the past 10 games, opposing tight ends have caught 70 passes against the Eagles, and that means Alex Smith should be looking for TE Vernon Davis, who leads the 49ers with 11 TDs.

The Eagles should have WR Kevin Curtis back to make up for the loss of rookie WR Jeremy Maclin (torn plantar fasciitis) and RB Brian Westbrook, who still hasn't been cleared to play following two concussions. Eagles FB Leonard Weaver is averaging 6.8 yards per touch in his past seven games; the 49ers will see a lot of Weaver with rookie Lesean Mccoy mixed in.
