    Robbie Gould downplays spat with Bears' Devin Hester

      Chicago Bears kicker Robbie Gould and return man Devin Hester engaged in a verbal spat with 5:12 left in the second quarter of the Bears' 27-21 victory on "Thursday Night Football." The incident occurred following a 46-yard kickoff return by New York Giants' Jerrel Jernigan.

      Gould said the incident was just a quarrel among brothers in the heat of battle.

      "I love Devin like a little brother," Gould said, per ESPNChicago.com. "It was just (that) my emotions got in the way. I was at fault. I was the wrong party in that. I love him like a brother. Once it was over, it was over. ... We both want to win. I don't want to put my teammates in a situation where I hit a [bad] kickoff like I did. There are no hard feelings. It's like a fight with your little brother."

      We've seen sideline spats before, but one with the kicker? We'd love to know if Charles Tillman was saying, "Man, don't hurt the kicker" when he dragged Hester away.






      Both Hester and Gould achieved milestones Thursday night. Hester's three kickoff returns for 73 yards made him Bears' all-time leader in kickoff return yards (4,643). Gould's 52-yard field goal in the third quarter tied the NFL record for most consecutive field goals made from 50-plus yards. It was Gould's 12th straight make, matchingMinnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh.

      Brothers argue, brothers get records and the family wins. All is A-OK in Chicago.

    I saw this fight, but couldn't figure how or why it started. Did I miss something?

    I heard this, he said he started it and it was no thing, Hester basically downplayed it also.

    I think Hester didn't want to be outshined in his own building by the opposing Kick Returner... Out of all the Bear players he was the won to get in Robbies face...? Wonder why......

    Devin needs to stop being terrible before he cuts into anyone on the field. The whole wedge could easily grab him every other return and yell at him for improvising into closed alleys.

    To me this isn't news.

    Players need to get more heated. Today in society players get too much attention for getting fired up. Thats part of the game.

    It happens, players get passionate. Without passion they may as well be playing Frisbee.

    No, he's not. If you'll recall, he set the NFL record for return yards in a game this season, he's having the second highest KR average of his career, and teams are punting away from him. He didn't get the chance to field a punt in the Minnesota or Pittsburgh game. Not to mention our ST play is considerably down this year, which means the people blocking for him are playing like crap too. I will say Devin had one mediocre performance, but he is absolutely still a threat to opposing teams.

    Devin Hester won't be a Bear next year. Gould will.

    The Hester Rule isn't helping either. But we are also missing Toub a lot IMO.
