For week 2. Don't have a link, just saw it on NFL Network.

Pretty nice way to show up Patterson after that kick return TD.

It was an amazing game by Hester. It would have been embarrassing for the NFL if he wasn't the STPoW. Glad to see he's seeing the running lanes like he use to again.

His first kickoff return of the game was crucial for us. That touchdown return from the Vikings totally silenced the crowd. Before the next kick even happened, Hester was dancing around in the endzone like he knew he was going to have a big return, pumping up the crowd, getting them back into the game before he even made a 70+ yard return.

This is Hester's true danger that should have been realized all along: fresh off the bench, WITH an offense that is a threat to move the ball. Big difference from his early years, coming much too late now.

I think he got some really good advice, and realized this is the way he can extend his career in the NFL. He probably won't be returning kicks for touchdowns often any more, but if we can get a few more years of having performances like Sunday, I think everyone here will be very happy and Hester can help us win a lot of football games.

It is ludicrous to say Hester is not Hall of Fame material. If he is not inducted the whole idea is a farce.

During that last Hester return, it looked like he would have taken it to the house if he wasn't tripped up by the grass during a cut. That would've added another 65 yards to his return total and set the all time single game record (currently 304 yards by Tyrone Hughes).

Dude that's actually a really good average! Like, a lot of nfl returners only average like 20 a kick, so dh is doing pretty good so far!
