Wtf Was Chicago Thinking?

Granted he became the best PR/KR in NFL history in Chicago but holy crap did they waste most of his career their on offense.

How do you not use him properly? How do you go the entire 2013 season and not throw to him once as a WR?

If our coaches can find ways to use him how on earth did he last so long in Chicago being wasted only on Special Teams?

Hester has quite easily made up for TG leaving and that strip play to get the ball back was a great heads up and smart play.

Hester is still super fast and he is also really smart as well. Why did Chicago waste his talents so much? Imagine if we had got Hester coming out of college and were able to grow his WR skills over time.

Now, I want to see how we play outdoors after the whooping we just laid down last night. I never worry about the "Dome" games however, what worries me are the open air stadiums. We always play well in Domes, home or away, it's the open air stadiums that worry me. Vikings should be a win for us but, we only have one home game left before our bye and the second one is to be played in London. Easy opponents though, minus the Bears, Lions are kind of hit or miss.

You do have to think Hester is probably also playing with something to prove. And boy is he proving it well. He wants to prove he has not lost it and he is still a pro. At this rate, he is going to be a pro-bowler.

Sometimes a guy just needs a change of scenery.

He actually wasn't that great of a receiver. His route running was mediocre and his hands were suspect... I saw a couple of Bears games on TV and that's what I noticed.

That is kind of the point, he wasn't a great WR, now after ONE off season with our staff he is a world beater.

With a little teaching and patience he could have been a great WR much earlier in his career.

Chicago pissed away alot of his career.

OP, as a huge fan of Hester who has watched him for his entire career, understand that it isn't that the bears didn't use him...

It's just that Jay Cutler sucks when using players like Hester. Cutler has no idea how to put touch on his throws. He throws the ball with no "soul". Cutler had no idea how to use Alshon Jeffery until McCown took over after his injury. Before then, he only threw the ball to Marshal. I'm typing on the phone right now so I can go into detail like I want. But Cutler is a inaccurate QB who throws jumpballs rather than work on timing with his receivers.

While Cutler is a huge ***** and is horrible inaccurate and obviously shied away from Hester, Devin was drafted in 2006 and Cutler got to Chicago in 2009. Chicago wasted Hester even before Cutler got there.

Obviously Cutler did not help the situation at all.

They are a bunch of idiots. I can't imagine how good a WR he would have been had he played here from the start and work around Roddy.

After 3 games Hester is one of the best FA grabs of franchise history,

Well, Roddy wouldn't have been a very good influence in Hester's first season. Neither would Mike Vick have been. 2008 would have been a good time to pick him up.

Well.....wasn't Hester a CB coming out of Miami. I don't think they had used him at all in the passing game until Cutler arrived.

Same reason the former Bears coach kept punting the ball to him - dumb.

Seriously Hester thrives as a 3 or 4 option and Ryan does not try to force throws to his primary nearly as much as Cutler.

Hester needs some space for a release and to find holes in zone and open space and is then "electrictrifying" to use a Roddy-ism.

I think Hester could lineup the same with Marshall and Jeffrey's outside in Chicago, but Cutler is too impatient and would not wait for Hester as 3d option to come open.

Lovie tried to use him. That clueless mofo up there now, well he's clueless. He didn't give him ONE snap on offense and replaced him with a clown that had less production than he had in his last year under Lovie. And he made all the Bear fans think he was not a WR. LMAO. Kudos to Dimi. One of my favorite acquisitions of his.

It had to have a lot to do with the coaching though. I'm guessing their receivers coach wasn't a fan because Lovie obviously was.

My understanding is it was pretty much a personal feud between Cutler and Hester at the end. Jake threw a pick and got upset because Hester improvises on routes. Atlanta's offense comes with a lot of option routes built in. It is just a better fit for his natural desire, as a return specialist, to run to space.
