Devin Hester looked useless on Sunday. Hester had one catch for 17 yards and averaged 3.4 yards per return on his five punt returns. Hester was said to be a starter along with Johnny Knox during this off-season, but it seems like Devin Aromashodu has taken Hester’s playing time.
Mike Martz and Jay Cutler seemed to be excited about Hester being part of this “high-flying” offense. By the way this “high-flying” offense ran the ball 31 times, so it still seems like they are a run first team.
But back to Hester, he was being groomed by former Rams great Issac Bruce this off-season. Hester had pretty good stats last season and this year I thought he would be even better.
If Hester can’t get things going soon, Rashied Davis will see more playing time. Hester has the talent and experience to be a solid slot receiver in this offense, but it just seems like he doesn’t fit in.
Hester’s special teams value has diminished because he thinks way to much on what he is going to do with the ball instead of just doing it and going down the field.
Maybe I am overreacting about Devin Hester. I mean it’s only been one game, but I hope Devin Hester knows he needs to step his game up a couple of notches, because he seemed to be invaluable to this offense on Sunday.
So come on Devin Hester play to your ability on offense and special teams because we all know what you can do. Just show it on the field this Sunday in Dallas and you will be known as a good player rather than an ordinary player.
