Default Devin Hester

Maybe the steelers should of looked at drafting this kid for punt return and kick return duties because he is lighting up opposing teams. He has taken it to the house 5 times this year with a 21.0 yd avg for kick returns and 14.0 yd avg for punt returns and hes only in his 1st year...wow.

Default I WISH we had Devin Hester!!!!

This kid is UNBELIEVABLE as he just ran back his SECOND kick tonight on MNF..I dont know how this kid does it...The Bears had their hands team on the kickoff in the 4th qtr and he still managed to find the hole and run it back giving him 5 on the year..I doubt he will get rookie of the year but boy has he made a difference on a team where the offense and Rex are so inconsistent. I really hope Reid can come back next year and give us a spark on ST because we absolutely blow this year..

** -1 - dropped an easy interception..lol

Dante Hall, anyone? Yeah, he's having a great year returning kicks, but what about next year? And the year after that? I think folks are overreacting because of Holmes' propensity to muff kick returns. Personally, I think we have more pressing needs - OL, DL, LB, CB, to name a few.

sure we have more pressing needs and our ST will come around but im just expressing my awe and of course venting some frustration since our ST helped lose numerous games

i think the outrage is we drafted willie ried for the exact same reason devin hester was picked by the bears. ST returns..

reid was a 3rd round pick and hester came after. while hester was on the field and building on a record breaking season reid was rotting away on the bench. (oh and colclough was handing the ball to the bungles)

As long as we don't pull an "Al Davis" and pay big money to a complete bust (Desmond Howard) because he won the SB MVP for returning kicks....

again, the bears drafted hester to replace j. gage. the steelers drafted s. holmes (for the recieving game) AND w. reid (for the return game) to replace a. randle el.

hester and homes have upheld their end of the bargain. its a shame reid didnt get his shot until the san diego game.
