Devin Hester has 10 punt and kick return touchdowns in his two season career, an average of 24.6 yards per kick return and 13.8 yards per punt return. Thats about as much as the next player in their career. If Devin's blockers do most of the work, then how come Nathan Vasher didn't put up these kind of numbers?
P.S. Don't bother giving a Christmas present to Hester, he'll just return it.

It's a shame my opponent didn't respond and attack Devin Hester, that's quite impossible I'm guessing. Greatest return man of all time on the greatest team of all time! Okay, maybe not the greatest team, but still something to argue I guess.

Okay, so wow. No one wants to debate this? I guess it its a little one sided, but still, this is really boring.

He is by no means in the hall of fame yet, and he has a ways to go. There's nothing we can do to judge his staying power and worthiness for the hall of fame until another couple years pass by. I don't recall any player that became famous for more than a half a season solely on returning. Luckily, they're starting to set him into the offense now, and he'll have other #'s to go by when considering him for future awards/rewards in the future. Umm... I'm not a bears fan. GO PATS!!!

Hall had half of a season, Hester is actually beating his numbers from last year, eventhough he has half the returns because no one kicks to him anymore. I think he has great staying power.

He is going to end up like Donte Hall produce nothing the next couple of years

Not only is Devin Hester the best returnman, he is the best player on the entire Chicago Bears team. Yes, I realize that Urlacher is still there, But Hester earned a spot in the Hall of fame his first year, and Urlacher didn't. Hester will probably go to the probowl every year he plays, and Urlacher may or may not. Go Bears!
