    Magnum Force. One of my favorite all-time movies. And that's what Hester is at his best. magnum force.

    I agree with that too. But it does take a talented person to play KR/PR in the NFL.

    I personally would have cut Weems at the begining of the year and using Joe Anderson or Hester for PR.

    OH Really ...
    please tell

    Hester did most of his damage off of KO returns and not punts this past Sunday .

    Would you rather he be running back KO's or get his punt game better , THATs if they kick the ball to him on punts

    Yes averaging nearly 50yds a KO and giving the Bears great field position all day is a pure waste isn't it? Another Bears fan that's too dumb to even appreciate the contributions that Hester made against MIN. Let me guess, all those returns were a waste for the Bears because the great Jay Cutler would have just driven the Bears offense down the field, right? Idiot.

    Mr. D, stop with the personal attacks. If you wanna throw jabs at a fellow poster do so in the Bar Scene.

    Do not make me ask you again to keep things civil in the public forums. Calling someone an idiot is not acceptable in the public forums.

    When he is hot as a returner, he is one of the most beneficial players on the team. Even when he doesn't touch the ball, other teams must be cognizant of him, which leads to 5-10 yards better field position on most punts. This fact cannot be overlooked, as it is much easier to finish 60 yard drives than it is 70-80.

    David, I tried to find something on this, but couldn't. I'd be curious about who is on it also. Maybe tonight I could play the Vikings game (I've got it recorded), just to quickly jot down the jersey numbers of the guys during ST plays.

    But, I keep thinking there HAS to be an online place that already has this info. Anyone else know?

    I tried looking at numbers, too. I had to look up #37! Please let me know if you find an online source that has the info. It's encouraging that at least you understand what I am looking for.

    Yes ,I know. But it doesn't give a full list of the first team members of special teams -- the players normally on the field for kick return and kick coverage. That's what we are looking for, and it's not on that website.

    Sorry to be ignorant; what are the roles of Nate Collins and Henry Melton when Hester is returning? I would have never assumed they were on that unit. I hope they don't get hurt on a special teams play.

    You got me Strocks. I have no football IQ, that's why I read where I can. It is possible I made a mistake (not high def stuff I was looking at) because the #'s were so small but I spent some time on it because it was a good question.

    Also I think it would not be unusual to see different personnel throughout the game with special teams...

    Now someone needs to break down punts :p

    Thanks. This might be as close as we're going to get to an answer.
