After a long, spirited discussion (read: Dane and I chatted briefly about it) we decided that while Hester did have the record-tying punt return to keep the Bears in it late, it was truly the breakout performance by Mr. Knox that deserves the game ball. What did he do, you ask?
5 receptions for 120 yards. For those who don't like to look things up, in 2009 he had 527 yards receiving. Total.
So kudos to you, J. Knox, and may you continue to make those strides and sometime get them to the end zone.
Leave your honorable mentions below, ladies and gents.
