Colts Will Kick To Hester

Only in Chicago does the busniess of punts and kickoffs become a big issue.  Despite getting burned in the Super  Bowl by Devin Hester and having a questionable special teams, the Colts will at times kick to him.

'There are going to be times when you have to kick to him,'' Dungy said. ''And we're going to try to punt well and punt high and make him move around to catch it. We're going to try to make him move to catch the kickoff.

''We certainly don't want to kick it out of bounds on the kickoff, so there's going to be a chance he's going to get the ball. I don't think we're just going to kick it high and down the middle to the 1-yard line to him.''

The Bears need all the help they can get to win this game and Coach Dungy just gave us of a bit.  I don't know if this is being cocky or stupid.  In the two years Hester has played the Bears have showed no ability to take advantage of the field position he provides us.  The Colts have a strong defense, to put the ball in the hands of a guy who can change a game in 5 seconds doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
