While Bear fans are anticipating the pro bowl Brandon Marshall to make plays this upcoming season, Marshall thinks Devin Hester will be making those plays as well. Marshall thinks that Hester is going to have an even bigger season than him.
With the addition of Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall into this offense, finally Hester will not be keyed in on. I am right with Marshall on his thinking. Hester is going to receive a lot of 1-on-1 match-ups and match-ups with linebackers. To quote Bart Scott….”CAN’T WAIT”.
Marshall’s quote on Hester…
“I’ve never been around a receiver, never seen a receiver who runs routes like Devin Hester does outside,” Marshall said Monday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “He has all the skills to be a Pro Bowl receiver, not a punt returner — we all know what he can do there — but a Pro Bowl receiver.
“Honestly I think he is going to have a bigger year than me this year. I just don’t think he’s been in an environment, a situation offensively that catered to him as a player. I think with [quarterback coach] Jeremy Bates and [quarterback] Jay [Cutler] growing and maturing, I think they will be able to put him in a better position this year to where he can probably do damage. I’m excited about everyone else, but the person I’m more excited to see is Devin.”
