    Re: Devin Hester: Just Give Me the gol 'darnit Ball

    The link is broken because of the damn profanity filter.
    Just replace the "gol%20'darnit" in the url with the word that is supposed to be there to get to the article.

    I thought Bears were going to run some screens or trick plays with Hester but they didn't even attemp any last Sunday. Weird...they need to get this playmaker the frickin ball, agree.
    Because I'm a Vikings fan, they are that much sexier.

    I hope he doesn't get the ball much when they play the Vikings.
    It would be great if Longwell could kick it into the endzone to avoid any returns.
    Our ST vs. Hester = SCARY.

    Re: Devin Hester: Just Give Me the gol 'darnit Ball

    It seems like every other year some team tries this with somebody that had a big year in the return game (Dante Hall being the last guy), and it never seems to work out.
    I don't know why, but they just don't seem to make effective players on offense and their special teams performance degrades.
    Maybe they get worn out or beaten up, or maybe they just had a lot of luck the last year and it ran out.


    Of course, this is just based on recent memory, so maybe I'm forgetting someone.
    And I'm not including in this conversation the primarily offensive players that started their careers on special teams.

    In any event, until I see otherwise, I'm going to assume that moving Hester to offense is a mistake for the Bears.
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]

    A lot of "NFL insiders" watched Hester in camp and said he looked sharp at WR.
    I say poppycock!
    He is a return man and a guy who can take a screen pass and eat up chunks of yards.
    His skillset does not include route-running at this point.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!
