MY CASE FOR DEVIN HESTER AS A HALL OF FAMER

DEVIN HESTER made history yesterday (unlike those who claim history will be made today when UConn women's team plays- don't get me started on that bunch of bull!). Hester's Return record does not include his return of a missed field goal. It also does not include his kickoff return for a touchdown in the Super Bowl! Despite that, it took Hester 74 games to break Stump Mitchell's record. It took Mitchell 233 games to set the old record!

Call him a specialist (that's like saying closers don't belong in baseball HOF) and I respond that he has a bigger influence on the game than most other "full-time" players. So if your a punter, you have to kick out of bounds (like Kluwe tried to constant boos of the crowd) usually resulting in decent field position for the Bears. How is that not influencing the game.

The same idiots who keep Ray Guy out of the Hall of Fame because all he did was punt, may try to keep him out of the Hall of Fame. But they may not be able to if he continues at this pace for the next few years. Plus his TDs as a receiver can't hurt (kinda like those voters who rationalize voting Dennis Eckersley in because he won a bunch of games a starter).

I think he belongs in the HOF right now. But, in any case, Devin Hester- "You are Ridiculous!"

DA BEARS- 2010 NFC North Champions!
