DeSean has had a huge impact on Philly. Maybe not as big as Donovan, but way more that 1/10th of what McNabb has given the city.
From his very first game, he proved to be a playmaker. He did all these crazy things. In fact, the Eagles wouldn't have made the NFC championship game in DeSean's rookie season without him.
He made a floundering Donovan look better than he was.
His speed has also opened up the offense to other players.
NFL Films voted DeSean's punt return for a TD the No. 1 play in Eagles history, beating Herm Edwards' Miracle in the Meadowlands.
There's a reason that DeSean and his contract have been national NFL news.
It's because he is pretty damn good.
