    Either way, he did bring a lot of excitement to the Bears. Sometimes I thought my heart was going to stop watching him. Here's his Super Bowl TD return.

    Really sucks he didn't get the record as a Bears player, I really hope it gets it regardless. That Rams game will forever haunt me.

    Bye, bye Lovie guy! :(

    You all can debate it all you want but if Phil Emery isn't doing all he can to rid himself of Lovie's guys then he's doing a damn good imitation of it. Even at age 31 the guy can still make ST Coordinators sweat and he had one PR for a TD last year, one called back and two KOR that nearly broke for TDs but didn't because teams kept a spy back to make sure he didn't. That's still how much respect he commands. At the very least they should have made him an offer before they shoved him out the door. :mad:

    Another guy welcomed back with open arms by Uncle Phil. Now he sleeps with the fishes.

    I don't think this is a 100% "getting rid of a Lovie guy" move whats soever.

    Da Bears cannot afford to have a 30-sum year old KR/PR specialists on their team anymore especially with how many starting defense positions are need to be replaced, as well as, adequate depth added to the roster so there isn't such a talent gab vs first string and second.

    If he was still a mediocre CB or WR it might be a different case. Plus I highly doubt Hester would be giving the Bears any kind of home team discount to stay in the navy & orange.

    Sad to see him go for sure, but time to turn the page.

    "Alligator Phil" strikes again. It's just business Sonny, it's not personal.

    Brando as Phil; "Instead of making him and offer he can't refuse I'm not gonna make him an offer at all.....fuck him".

    How would we know that if they never even approached him about returning? The guys still scores points and provides great field position. Can you say the same about Adam Podlesh. He can't play CB or WR either. He was one of the worst punters in the league last year vs one of the top PR/KOR men and he makes more than Hester but he still has a job. Funny huh?

    I'm not so sure it's a "Lovie" thing but rather a simple business move. Too much $ involved and maybe they want to give him the chance to test the waters first to see if some team WILL give him a better payday. Love Hester but Lovie & JA screwed the pooch when he gave him the big $ to be the "#1" WR.
