Not to take anything from ARE, but D. Hest special. Even more so than Dante Hall. Blocking has obviously played a role, but this guy is simply amazing.

Lol! I was thinking of that as well and was going to post something similar but thought (mostly) no one here would get it.

Youre crazy, flat out crazy. You know that drill in basketball where you run the wohle way down the court, and touch the line with your hand then run back. Hester could run 100 yards, touch the goal line, turn around, and damn near get back to midfield before rock gets there.

Reggie Bush is far better at moving laterally (jumping sideways to get around defenders), but Hester is much much faster and also has good open field moves.

Re: Devin Hester

You know, I saw the first return, and today I saw an article that said he had two TDs in that game (I didn't watch the whole thing). But, I checked NFL.com and it says Chicago only has 5 total ST TDs, so I thought the other one might have come on an INT. I guess NFL.com is a little slow for updates.

You have to absolutely give credit to the entire special teams unit -- even their kicker has played lights-out. However, Hester has done something nobody has ever done before.

I still dont agree. The second one he ran back, they were set up to return an onside kick. He had no lanes setup, everyone was already at mid field. He just found holes and ran faster than everyone.

And what about the missed field goal that he ran 108 yards, there were no lanes there, thats not even the normal special teams unit.

And the other one he has peopl etrying to tackle him and he kept spinning out of things.

Great blocking doesnt get you 6 return tds in a year, otherwise it would have been done before.

The Field Goal shouldent even count they didnt even try to tackle him

I just feel that Donte Halls returns were more impressive of what i have seen of hester although i dont deny the guy is somehting special. Hes also fumbled 4 times and hes lucky he only lost 1

Re: Devin Hester

Vasher did the exact same thing last year I think, returning a field goal for a td. All you need is speed to do that, because the field goal kicking unit is all O-lineman who think the play is over.
