Bears Think WR Hester Will Take Step Forward in 2009


The Bears are confident WR Devin Hester will be able to progress and make the next step at wide receiver. Head coach Lovie Smith said, “At times he played like a [No. 1] receiver. If you just look at the progress that he made from start to finish, locking in at one position for the first time in his career … we like the progress he made, so there’s no reason to think he can’t take another jump.” Hester led Bears wide receivers with 51 receptions for 665 yards and 3 touchdowns, including a 65-yard score at Minnesota that was the team’s longest play from scrimmage all season.

    Hester is not the answer at WR. He needs to catch the not so easy ones, and remember how to break tackles. Look at the kid from North Carolina in the draft. Or play Bennett
