Captain Morgan

How big is the difference between KR and PR?

Hester has never been a DB...also, another advantage of using a db for returning would be that they get a chance to rest before getting on the field again while some WR's are out on the field immediately playing after returning.

Yeah u might wanna check that again. Everyone except you knows that Hester was a DB coming out of the U, whom the Bears converted him to a WR.

We do have a DB that has handled PR duties. As atrocious as AE was last year I thought they would have put Captain Munnerlyn in there to give PR duties a boost. I know he wouldn't have been that much more effective but he did it consistently at USC and a little bit his rookie year.

Y'all are both right, sort of. Hester was drafted as a DB but never played DB.

now it could be said that he was never good as one which is a lot of the reason that they moved him to WR, but he most certainly was a CB for his first year and through college.

He may not have been given the opportunity to return punts due to the four fumbles he had during punt returns in 09/10. Given the efficiency of our offense last year, the staff may have prioritized ball security over a potential 5 yard return variance.

PR give me a Hester/Smith type player with lots of "wiggle".

KR give me an Antonio Cromartie/Megatron with tons of top end speed and great vision.

Obviously the only player in this post that is played there all the time is Hester, and that's because he isn't a good WR yet.

i think he's peaked in that category. he's had plenty of time to develop there and they went out and drafted alshon and also picked up marshall. i take that as a sign that they didn't really like hester's potential as a WR.

he's only really ever been good at returning the ball and that's probably going to be the extent of his role there in chi-town.

The fact that that is going to be the extent of his role in Chicago and they'll keep him around for it is a testament to how spectacular he is at that role. I can't help but lean forward whenever he's lined up a field the kick.

And yea, I don't think he's got much going for him as a WR. At best a #3, but a #3/#4 that is holds NFL records relevant to his position? Yes pls.

Maybe I'm just so desperate to see a quality return game after so many years of missing one that I'm overly impressed. Like when TheOracle's girlfriend (read: his hand) meets up with an average stranger at a urinal. Sometimes when you've got nothing to work with you'll take anything you can get your hands on :P

no. he played DB his rookie season.

I think, though I could be wrong, he never actually appeared in a game as a DB. No career tackles, no INTs, no pass breakups. That's what I meant when I said he was drafted as one but never played.
