I think trying to make a WR of Hester is going to hurt his returns.

I think you meant... Hilarious. As in it's hilarious that you're recapping the first play of a Super Bowl in which you were dominated! Bears suck. ha ha ha

the new format is really bad. and the chicagosports.com was a much better name the current. I have to say it is really a down turn in the product.

he actually returned that kickoff to make it 6-0. Gould made it 7-0. by the way, this Bears team is horrible. can you say 4-12? hopefully, Angelo and that liar Smith will get canned and we can try to bring some respect--not to mention some offense--back to Chicago football.

HEY, let chicago fans have something to fantasize about. And besides it is a distinct and perhaps only advantage for this game, so lets have something to be glad for.

What i don't really understand is how big of a disadvantage is it for Hester to run extra yards to grab a squib compared with catching a straight on kick? I have seen plenty of those off-line kicks returned in the NFL for long gains. If it was such a great strategy why doesn't every NFL kicker kickoff like this, everytime? If it was my team, i would kick it straight out of bounds and take my chance with Orton et al, at least until I had a lead.

"He was like ...."

"We were like ...."

So, like, NFL coaches girl-speak like teeny-bopper mall rats? Who knew!!!

Why can't the dumass Chicago beat writers wordsmith around such STUPIT quotes?

Good-bye grammar. Hello the United States of Dum-erica!

The morning before the first Sunday of football and you are talking about the glory days of how the Bears got killed a couple years back in the SuperBowl. Man, it's gonna be a long, painful year for Bears fans.

"the bears have no business winning", what the h3ll? this matchup is almost even in terms of strengths and weaknesses. you act like they shouldn't even take the field.

listen, the colts are stupid. thats fact. so they could very EASILY be STUPID enough to kick to hester again. nobody in their right mind would have kicked to devin, opening kickoff...superbowl. thats common sense.

if the colts are that stupid, then lets hope that stupidity carries over to the rest of their gameplan. if they're stupid enough to HONESTLY think kicking to the sidelines or kicking a squib kick or not "putting it in his wheelhouse" as father of the year states...then they're idiots and we better win cuz he has no wheel house. the ball, in his hands...is as smart as sleeping with a chic with gonerrhea and not wearing a rubber, "you're going to get burned". shouldn't even be a discussion. this is as logical a question to ask as...uh, its bases loaded...we're up 3 runs, bottom of 9, 2 outs...babe ruth is up. do we pitch to him? if you think more than .0004 seconds on that...you're a moron.

Let's go Bears!!!! We're taking this one. The score will be somewhere around 23 - 17. And a lot of you will be dumb-founded. HAHAHAHA
