Sorry if this has been covered but Hester will no longer return kicks

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/12035856

 

Color me pissed off.  Hester was the best return man in football, and possibly one of the greatest ever.  He changed the game with his abilities.    And while a punt return td is rough on the opposition, (IMO) mentally the kick return is a back breaker.  

 

You see, (again, just the way i see it) the other team works hard on a drive in order to score.  It takes a lot in this league.  After the score you feel good and your status has changed in the game.  Then you kickoff and just like that you are right back where you started.  I find it demoralizing.   The punt is different, your offense just failed and were giving it back to the other team regardless.  

 

Lastly, teams can force a fair catch or kick out of bounds.  While this may give the Bear slightly bette field position, it doesn't compare to the kickoff where you can't do that.  But then again, that's just me.
