Desean had one of the worst games of his career tonight, he knows it, we know it, everyone knows it, and he's gonna hear about it. I don't usually fanpost and I'm gonna get blasted for this and I'm just winging it right after the game ended so it'll probably have a ton of mistakes, but I really don't care. Before we start saying how much we hate Desean, lets all remember why we love the Eagles, please take the jump to "happier times."
Desean was a rookie, but at this point I think we all knew he was special.
All throughout 2009 the Eagles had the odds stacked against them, with injury, shady vans, and certain Andrews whose hair looked like female genitalia striking. However, time and time again, Desean was there to pull through and deliver when necessary.
The Eagles came back next season with a new QB, but Desean continued to make plays. He pulled us out of a close game in Dallas with a 91 yard score, lead the Monday nighter vs Washington off with the memorable 88 yard TD, and he had one of the most memorable plays in the history of the Eagles, a walkoff punt return to win the game vs the Giants as time expired. Not many people remember this, but Desean left the playoff game vs Green Bay with the same injury that knocked Jay Cutler out of a game, and even had a long catch on the Eagles last drive.
Not only is Desean a great player, but a great person as well. He went on Oprah to meet a boy who was beat up in school, and he runs a foundation for donating money to cancer research. Does he make some boneheaded plays? Absolutely, but before you all rip into him in the fanposts and comments, stop and think what it would have been like the last few seasons as an Eagles fan without him.
