Devin Hester looked like the old Devin Hester last night with his 54 punt return last night against the Broncos.
I’m sure the Bears announcer was saying his favorite line “Devin Hester you are ridiculous.”
This is what Hester said about his return last night:
“I saw more things [that] you normally don’t see as far as just in the huddle, we got a little rowdy, a couple players got into some altercations with some fights on the field, and he was the guy who was like, ‘Hey, chill out, let’s get down and put these points on the board and worry about that later.’ You see a quarterback [taking control of the situation] like that, you know you got a good leader going forward, I got a little rhythm; I never score in preseason games. I did that on purpose.”
I hope Devin Hester does what he did last night all season, but he has to continue to do what he does best run up the field, don’t dance around and wind up losing yards.
Anyway, Devin Hester will never be the number one receiver the Bears coaches are saying he will be, but if he goes back to returning punts for touchdowns and contributing on offense with Jay Cutler under center he will be very valuable.
Hopefully I can say all season that Devin Hester is very good player. Good luck this season Devin, keep up the good work.
