    Devin Hester Appreciation Thread

    Devin Hester won’t play for the Bears next season.
    Perhaps the game’s greatest kick returner of all time acknowledged Wednesday night what signs had pointed to all offseason.
    “From my knowledge,” he said on NFL Network, “I know Chicago wants to go a different route with me.”
    That means letting Hester reach unrestricted free agency Tuesday, and then watching him sign with another team.

    Wednesday night, Hester reiterated his desire to return and retire as a member of the Bears, whenever his career ends.
    “All I can say is, ‘Thanks to the fans and the support,’” he said; “Always been great to me, always been loyal. Couldn’t want to play for a better city than those guys.”

    I think the Hester Super Bowl kickoff is my favorite play of all time, watching it at least. The dude is the greatest returner of all time, and as much as I'd like to see him return a couple more in a Bears uniform, this is probably the right move at the right time.

    Lets face it, he is/was arguably the most exciting Bear since Sweetness.

    He's the GOAT. I knew this was coming but still sucks to see him go.

    Phil told Devin to catch the next flight out of O'Hare.

    He took the wrong route there and missed it.

    GOAT. One of the most electric and exciting players I've ever seen.

    It'll be strange to see him in a different uniform next season, but it's probably the right time to move on.

    Oh, and thanks SD for posting that highlight video, it's fun to go back and watch some of those. That game in Arizona, the Super Bowl & the MNF game against the Packers a few years ago are some of my favorites.

    I'll never forget that epic fakeout vs. the Giants. That, to me, was the essence of Devin Hester.


    OH! And that ****ing INSANE fake return with Knox in 2011. That play singlehandedly demonstrated why Dave Toub is a goddamned genius.

    Hopefully wherever he goes he gets to burn the Vikings one last time.

    He was definitely exciting. Not all that sad to see him go though. For whatever reason, it hasn't felt like he was really part of the team for a couple years now. Maybe I was just spoiled by his dominant seasons. I kind of compare him to Forrest Gump....just give him the ball and he'll run with it and make people miss. Nothing complex. Anything beyond that is a little too much for him (running routes, catching passes, talking etc). Don't know what the **** Lovie was smoking thinking he could be a number 1 receiver.
