Do you think the Bears should consider moving him back to Cornerback?
I understand coming out of college he played both positions
But with him becoming frustrated with his role on offense..
Thoughts?

He didn't look frustrated when he toasted Mo Claiborne for that TD on MNF.

I think the title should be "KR Devin Hester." He's nothing more than a #4 receiver on offense. Lets face it. He's only on the roster because of his special teams ability. And that's okay.

As a diehard Bears fan who has no love for Devin Hester and feels every snap he takes at receiver is one less snap for a young developing receiver, my answer is a firm no. He was a far worse CB than he is a WR and now that the Bears aren't hanging their hats on Hester being a starter and putting up production to match that distinction he can have a small impact in game as a #4/slot receiver.

He's nothing but a hybrid weapon in today's NFL, who can be utilized with the ball in space a few times throughout the game. A perfect example would be exactly how he was emphasized on MNF against the Cowboys.

Hester was only frustrated because he wasn't getting the ball....

coming from a die hard bears fan, I think he should be used five to ten snaps a game to give defenses a different look and solely used for returns otherwise. He is soft, he looks to lay down before big hits or get to the sideline and I honestly don't feel like he is as fast as everyone thinks, but his agility and acceleration are top notch.

No. Devin Hester is a punt and kick return man. Occassional WR. Not a DB. Good way to burn out talent.

Marshall and Jefferies are good. Need a 3rd WR.

He hasn't had to tackle anybody in years. Why would he want to start again now?

he's frustrated with his role on offense? he has never showed anything as a WR that would make anyone want to "feature" him on the offensive side of the ball. he has been at best a #4 type WR. with his skill set, you would think he would be a great slot type receiver, yet he simply hasn't shown it.

1. Make him a wildcat RB

2. line him up 40 yards behind center.

3. Have center side snap the ball and chuck it back there.

4. Pretend it's a PR

5. ????

6. profit. Or 25 yard loss

Just because he isn't a good receiver doesn't mean he doesn't think he is. He's one of the best returners of all time, but he can only help his team on special teams. He also probably wants the attention other receivers get. He's a great player who gets less attention than an above average receiver on another team.

Should have left him at corner all along imo.

(Return man still his main job, but part time corner instead of part time wr)

Using him wrong in the first place. He's not a proper WR so they need to think of other was to get him the ball. The OCs in his tenure haven't been talented or creative enough.

He should be used more like Percy Harvin has this season.
