Some interesting stats on Hester
By the way didn't the Bears lower his reps at WR so he could work more on the return game again? It seems to be working, he's far more dangerous to other teams as a return man then at WR. Plus with Knox, Arom, and Bennett all getting better, they really don't need him as much at WR as they did the past few years.
- Hester is the only punt returner in the league to have 4 returns over 20 yards so far.
- Outside of Hester, no punt returner has more then 1 return longer then 40 yards this season. Hester has done that 3 times, which doesn't count 1 other called back from penalty.
