Are you out of your mind!? Curtis is terrible at PR/KR. We tried him back there but he's to scared to do it, he was slower than hell and didn't get past the 20. And I thought I was a homer!

very underrated returner who shoudl get much more credit is Joshua Cribbs

I think Hester's return in the Superbowl pretty much gave the Bears great field position for 2007. Either that or a whole lot of squib kicks. =(

If the Colts had two weeks to prepare for him and still couldnt stop him without completely kicking away from him, I don't think anbody will risk it.

Same goes for Wes Welker.

He's only a decent KR, but he's one hell of a PR. One of the best I'd say. Not saying he is the best, but you should throw his name in there for sure.

McGee not in the top 5 is inexcusable. Most consistent, and consistently great. Rarely does punts anymore but is for sure a top 3 KR.

Actually, Justin Miller is arguably a better KICK returner (not punt) than Devin Hester. I don't think he is, but a case can be made for it.

In the regular season, each had two kick off return touchdowns. However, Miller had over twice the attempts, Miller averages a little more than 2 more yards per KR than Hester, not that it means much. Hester is better, but Miller is I think the closest one to him.

Rashean Mathis is not our Kick or Punt returner. Alvin Pearmen handled the punts, while Mo Drew returned Kicks.

**** no you couldn't. Hester had the best season for a returner than any player in the history of the NFL last year. Anyone that even attempts to make an argument that doesn't have him as #1 is just blowing in the wind.

Tyson Thompson is very underrated he was leading the NFC maybe NFL in average kick return yards, but he was hurt vs carolina and missed the rest of the season.

Devin Hester is to returning what Edison was to inventing.

Or what Edison was to stealing other peoples inventions. Anyways, maybe it's just the baltimore fan in me but I have to wonder why BJ Sams is getting no love. Perhaps because he got injured.

MJD did in fact return Kicks, and did a very good job at it, capping the year by taking one all the way against Indy.

He did have to recover from his motorcycle accident in the off-season. I didn't watch enough of the Texans to see how/if he returned to form by the end of the season.

getting hurt really take him off people radar. he was a really good PR. not that many TD persay but really good yards on each return. it was a BIG loss for our offense when we lost him

He used to I thought?! Didn't he make it as a Pro Bowl return man?

i know i might get laughed at but i think that willie reid will be a realy good returner. he was one of the best returners in the draft last year but was injured. watch out for him

heh, he would have broke a punt return for a TD on the cowboys also if your guy didn't throw his legs back and trip him as he was being blocked. Of course it wasn't called, good job.

Just KR, Justin Miller is the best but Hester is close.

Punt returner it is a toss up between PacMan and Hester.
http://www.nfl.com/stats/leaders/NFL/PNTRET/2006/regular

Overall Hester because he is good at both KR and PR and Field Goal returns.

Plus you have to factor in a little thing called blocking. Without great blocking, no tds would be scored. Most of the time the returner has to juke out one maybe two guys and then outrun everyone.

I know the worst PR is Keiwan Ratliff... Although I'm sure he's spent more yards running side to side than any other PR in the league.

Tab Perry (when healthy) is one of the more consistant however he's not in the top... Not nearly as much homerun ability as the top guys but he gets to the 25-35 every time.

Stats do not tell the whole story. Anyone that actually thinks that Miller or Cribbs is better than Hester is out of their mind. Teams don't kick straight to Hester anymore. They would rather squib it or kick it out of bounds and take it at the 40. This is in part why his average isn't off the charts. Often he gets the ball on the bounce at the 15-20 yard line.

He came back for a game or 2 and then injured a hamstring, but in those game he returned 1 to the 5 yard line and broke another long one.....I think as a KR he is one of the best in the NFL...he has crazy straight line speed...

Yeah, Hester is better, but at the beginning of the year it was Miller. Around the first half of the season Miller had 2 touchdowns and an average OVER 30! He was just sick. But I don't think Hester returned much in the first half, correct me if I'm wrong.

Reggie Bush is NOT a top 5 return man, he should not even be returning punts, he tries to many jukes and ends up faking one or two people and then gets hit by the next man

1) Hester
2) Jerome Mathis-when healthy
3) Miller
4) Pacman
5) Hall
Also is Rossum still playing, not that id consider him but I havent heard his name since '04

"Bucs" and "Good kick returns" are antonyms.
