Five things we learned from Saturday’s game against the Titans

1. We are not the team we saw against Houston, and that Falcon fans is GREAT news. 2. Devin Hester is showing signs of life on offense. Could he be in store for more offensive snaps? I believe so, the loss of Drew Davis has trusted Hester into the spotlight at the #4 spot. If Atlanta wants to be explosive, keeping #17 on the field provides that chance. 3. Matt Ryan looked comfortable...

VIDEO: Undeniable proof that Devin Hester is as good as he’s ever been

A few weeks ago I warned you that despite everything you may have heard, Atlanta Falcons receiver and return man Devin Hester has not lost a step. Last year with the Chicago Bears he tallied up a career high in return yards. Critics who think that he fell off either weren’t paying attention or simply don’t know what they’re talking about. Last night Mr. Hester proved me right...

VIDEO: Devin Hester Catches Slant, Jukes Safety and Scores Touchdown

Devin Hester has finally scored in Atlanta, and the play was dirty. Hester catches what appears to be a slant/skinny post and then shakes Bernard Pollard out of his socks on his way to scoring a touchdown. Check out the video: Everyone anticipates Devin Hester breaking the “All-Time Return Touchdown Record” this year in Atlanta as he sets his sites on greatness. Hester needs...

Devin Hester’s Preseason Off To Rough Start, Ready For Hall of Fame

Devin Hester, the new kick returner for the Atlanta Falcons, has had a rough start to his preseason so far. Hester fumbled his first punt return attempt which resulted in a turnover and his second attempt was a 2 yard loss. Hester did return his first kickoff 21 yards though. As a Bears fan, it tough not to root for Hester to succeed as most think he has a legit shot at the Hall...

Devin Hester: I Hope the Hall of Fame is Open to Special Teamers

Devin Hester is widely considered to be the best kick and punt returner in NFL history. The former Chicago Bear and current Atlanta Falcon owns just about every major return record, including combined career special teams touchdowns, kick return touchdowns in a season and punt return touchdowns for both a career and season. Hester, 31-years-old and likely trending toward the end...

Devin Hester is ‘weapon’ for Falcons’ offense

The Bears eventually gave up on using kick returner Devin Hester as a wide receiver but Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said Hester’s “play-making ability” has him excited to use him in that role. In 2013 Hester didn’t play an offensive snap for the first time since his rookie season in 2006. The Falcons signed Hester, 31, during the offseason and have run plays...

No, Atlanta Falcons returner Devin Hester has not lost a step

There are some people who believe that Atlanta Falcons return specialist Devin Hester has lost a step and is no longer one of the most dangerous weapons in the NFL. That simply isn’t true. Some may point to Hester’s age (31) or his stats as a sign that his ability is on the decline. For example, Hester scored 11 return touchdowns in his first two seasons and has “only” run...

Devin Hester Likes Weed

Posted to Chicago BearsDevin Hester posted this photo with the title: “Chilling” This was posted to instagram today, notice anything odd? (should have said “Chilling, high as **** smokin’ this blunt”) Out of all the things in your closet that you could wear, then post later – why did he pick the weed socks? Is it because Atlanta likes to get high? After listening to...

Devin Hester looking to add flare to the Atlanta Falcons this season

The Falcons scored big with the offseason acquisition of Devin Hester. Hester, even at 31, can still be an explosive asset to any roster including a youthful squad such as the Falcons. Outside of being the best return specialist in the modern day era, Hester has proven that he can play a solid role on the offense as a wide out with his former team the Chicago Bears. However, Hester’s...

10 bargain NFL free agents still available

All too often, front offices around the NFL try so hard to scoop up what they think are the missing pieces to their Super Bowl puzzle on the open market that they wind up bending over backwards for overpriced big-name free agents that fail to live up to expectations. Unfortunately for these teams and their fans, dishing out loads of money in free agency rarely leads to championships...
