    Is he worth having so that we start at the twenty yard line every time we get the ball? It may be.

    Not likely.

    The day is coming when kickoffs are eliminated completely. Who knows when that will be

    If he returns to form this year he'll be back.

    Yeh, QBs will be just texting TDs and not throwing them at that time.

    The NFL does not like kickoffs. Because they are one of the most dangerous times in the game (according to some reports) they are going to do all they can to limit returns. Already started by allowing the kickers to move up. More Touchbacks equal less returns, equal less injuries.

    It is only a matter of time before they decide to just allow teams to start at the 20 and eliminate the kickoff all together.

    I don't think it's that Benj, but I do agree that Hester is likely gone next year. Next year there will be a lot of familiar players that will no longer be w/the team. I don't think the team is planning on returning more then a few of the guys on 1 yr contracts; and I think a few that are coming to the end of their contracts might get cut or traded.

    The elimination of kickoffs likely does not come next year. But Hester is going to want more than a return man is worth. So he will be gone.

    But mark my words, a returner is going to go away. Become a thing of the past

    Well, thankfully his forte has been the punt return game, but Cincy's guys were down there in a hurry. Agree completely about kickoffs, it almost seems like they're slowly preparing us for no kickoffs by having just about every one end in a touchback, lol. Do I think Hester will be back? Only if he comes cheaply AND performs well this year. If he doesn't perform well, it doesn't matter if he's paying us, there's no reason to have a 31 year old return man who lost his stuff years ago. I'm hoping against hope that he shows a little of that spark he had early on in his career.

    Do you want to put our O at the one yard line?

    I'm going to say no and even he says so his home is for sale in Gurnee.
