Insider Fantasy Top Performers chat!
We're calling them "Insider Fantasy Top Performers" and here's how it will work: After watching each weekend of playoff games, we'll ask some of the day's biggest stars to join us. These chats will be open to all ESPN.com users, but only Insiders are eligible to get their questions answered.
Curtis has been a consistent performer for the Eagles in the playoffs, catching four passes in each of the team's playoff games. His four catches went for 40 yards in the Eagles' 23-11 win over the Giants in Sunday's playoff win. The Eagles play the Cardinals in the NFC championship Sunday at 3 p.m. ET.

Kevin will be here shortly, everyone!
Kevin, Do you have any pre-game rituals?
Kevin Curtis (4:33 PM)
Nothing really too out of the ordinary. I try to prepare the same way every time--I do the same warmup, get to the stadium at the same time, but nothing out of the ordinary.
Who has the best facial hair on the team?
Kevin Curtis (4:33 PM)
Mine's the worst, I know that. I'd have to say Tre Thomas. I think he's got the best beard going.
What do you think it was that really turned the team around late in the season? Was there one play or one game that did it?
Kevin Curtis (4:35 PM)
I think after the Baltimore game was kind of when we hit our low point of the season. It's our job to stay together through those low times. I think we just rallied around one another as a team. A lot of people counted us out, but we can't pay attention to that. We played Arizona after that, came out, and played extremely well. I think we were able to take off from there.
Who is your favorite DB to go up against?
Kevin Curtis (4:37 PM)
Probably Anthony Henry from the Cowboys. I have a lot of respect for how he plays. He's a bigger guy and he is physical. He's a challenge to go up against. It's a battle going up against him.
Do you feel any pressure to match the success of the Phillies?
Kevin Curtis (4:38 PM)
No, we all enjoyed watching that though. If anything, it's good to see a hometown team come home with the title. If anything, it's inspired us to play at that level and reach that ultimate goal. There's always pressure in this game, and our number one goal is to win and bring home a championship, so we don't bring on any extra pressure.

What did you do with the ball that you scored your first NFL Touchdown with?
Kevin Curtis (4:39 PM)
My first NFL touchdown was in Seattle. I spiked it, and didn't even think anything of it. It didn't really register. I didn't think of keeping it, but Isaac Bruce chased it down and gave it to me later in the week. I still have it.
What are you guys going to have to do in order to beat the Arizona Cardinals?
Kevin Curtis (4:41 PM)
They're playing extremely good football right now. Defensively, they are creating a lot of turnovers. We have to take care of the ball, and obviously establish a good run game in order to do well in the passing game. Defensively, obviously they have a great QB back there and two of the best receivers in the league, and a good running game. It's important for us to limit the big plays and shut them down. They can put some points on the board, so it's important to keep them under control.
Kevin, Best of luck this weekend..How would you describe the differences working with Donovan and Marc Bulger.
Kevin Curtis (4:44 PM)
Thanks for the support. I think of similarities more than differences--they both are pretty amazing at keeping an even keel. They keep their cool no matter what. They don't get caught up in the highs and lows--they keep focused and keep the huddle the same way. You wouldn't know how much pressure is on them. Personalities are a bit different. Donovan is a bit of a character and more outspoken. Marc is more of a silent leader. But both of them lead by example. Donovan's also a little bit bigger, but they are both accurate and throw a good ball.
Kevin Curtis (4:45 PM)
Just wanna thank everyone for their questions, and I'm looking forward to the big game this weekend!
