Devin Hester: I donít know if I want to play anymore
 
Maybe he will want to play indoors!

************************************************** *******

Devin Hester has only played for one coach since he entered the NFL and he said Monday that heís thinking about keeping things that way by retiring before the start of next season.

Hester spoke to reporters after Lovie Smith was let go by the Bears after nine years as their head coach, a move that Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports Hester blamed on ďfalse fansĒ and media rather than the fact that the Bears have advanced to the playoffs just once since 2006. The firing left the NFLís all-time leader in punt return touchdowns talking about renewed thoughts about retiring from the sport.

ďI donít even know if I want to play again, man. You know, thatís been on my mind for two years now,Ē Hester said. ďItís not (as much fun anymore). It ainít. So, I have my workersí comp papers in my pocket. See how I feel, go home and talk to my wife, my family. See where we go from there. Iíve got two beautiful kids, man, young. Two boys. A lot of stress has been on my mind lately.Ē

When was the last time he actually played.
A bears fan i know has wanted him cut for the last couple of years.
He offers nothing as a WR and teams just punt and kick away from him.

He played Sunday against the Lions ... unless you mean when was the last time he played with any consequence, in which case would probably be when he played against the Lions last season and ran one back for a TD, :mrgreen:.

I'm a little surprised Lovie was fired, the past two seasons he's been deprived of Cutler & Urlacher much of the time.

Hester needs to realize he's not playing at the hs/college level anymore and there are coaching changes, ie <click heels 3x> "I just wanna' go home, I just wanna' go home ... "

I meant actually put in a performance.
I agree it seems harsh on Smith but sometimes things just need freshened up.That defence is getting old and maybe a new face to construct a new D is needed.He will get plenty of offers though,Eagles would be a good fit IMO.

To me its not about them changing as much as it is about them being to stingy to give Lovie an extention.

Yeah, of all the ones who got the axe, I figured he had the best shot at finding meaningful employment, :lol:.
