Chicago Bears' Devin Hester to Make History in Miami?
<snip>

"The Chicago Bears' return specialist, Devin Hester, is currently tied for the most combined kickoff and punt returns for touchdowns, along with Washington Redskins' great, Brian Mitchell, at 13.

Playing in his home town of Miami, FL Thursday night, against the Dolphins, Hester may have a chance to break his current tie with Mitchell.

But, if you're keeping score, Hester's on-pace numbers not only best Mitchell's, but they put Hester in-line to blow virtually every recordable return statistic out of the metaphorical water.

While Mitchell also has 13 career returns for TD, that number is through 223 total games played. It took Hester just 69 total games to achieve that same number. To put that into perspective: If Hester stayed at his current pace throughout his career, he'd finish with approximately 42 career return TDs, to Mitchell's 13.

Now, let's be realistic, Hester won't achieve that. His numbers will - likely - steadily decrease when he does start to enter the tail-end of his career. But, to be fair, 13 is not even close to 42. Hester will be labeled THE all-time great return-man for many years to come."

5. More importantly, he still trails Tiger Woods
13 returns to 14 majors.

What happened to that thread, anyway?

Other than it was deservedly dormant for 2 years.

Mouldering away in the archives.

I was thinking of reviving it after Hester's latest spurt.
