    The look on #Bears coach Marc Trestman's face when asked about Devin Hester playing DB. "You never know," he said: pic.twitter.com/pH4400LVC

    I said this a while back when frick n' frack looked so pathetic. We have nothing to lose here and this could be the way he saves his last chance of being with the Bears. Win win win with nothing to lose, I say it happens Trestman always thinks outside the box or in his box.

    well he's not really HESTER impressive in PR/KR so why not put him in the room w/the DB's and see if he can figure it out. hard thing to try and learn so many years after not doing it though.

    Let's hope it doesn't come to this. It would only mean that some one else has gotten injured and more chaos on defense. Everytime it seems the D gets a little stability, somebody else goes down. While I love Hester as much as the next guy, he hasn't played CB in a long time. The chances of him walking on and having a big impact is slim.

    Hester should have been perhaps only a dime defender or 3rd and 4th and very long situations. Never should have been a WR. At least as a DB he could have had a chance to run int's and fumbles back and have much fresher legs which would have helped his KR/PR back in the day.

    I'm afraid that Hester as DB ship has long since sailed...

    I still think he could have been a good or 4th or 5th WR, a guy that ran simple hooks or posts or go routes that was thrown to only if everything broke down and he was left open in the field. But not as a #1 or 2 hell not even a 3rd.

    Well, if he by some miracle grabbed an INT, he'd have a good chance for 6.

    That is definitely true. He never had a problem running after he got his hands on the ball. The problem was catching the ball.
