I wouldn’t even know where to begin with Devin Hester quest to get the football more.

In my opinion he’s between a rock and a hard place.

What exactly do you do with a guy who’s not talented enough to be a starting receiver, yet not big enough to be a running back.

Well according to Devin Hester via ESPN Chicago, the Bears need to figure it out.

Hester is frustrated with his role and how the Chicago Bears use him.

“It’s hard being one of the top electrifying players in the league and you’re not able to get your hands on the ball as much as you want.”

Hester has 2 catches for 27 yards total on the season.

Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice wants Hester to know he’s trying.

“We try to get him the ball. It doesn’t always work out, like that one in the end zone (against the Rams on Sunday) that was designed for him,” offensive coordinator Mike Tice said Thursday. “Basically it was a one-man route. We’re trying to find ways to get him the ball. Sometimes the coverage dictates we’re going to go to him, sometimes it doesn’t.”

Hester to his credit has remained optimistic and avoided being a distraction.

“Hopefully it’ll come one day, but for right now I’m in the same boat as you guys,” Hester said. “I’m trying to figure out when it’s going to come. It’s a disappointing feeling. I know what I’m capable of.”

In my opinion I’m not sure where Hester fits in any package.

He can’t play on the outside with the big boys as Roddy White likes to call them, yet I’m confused as to why the Bears can’t even use him in a Wes Welker role from the slot.

What does that say about Devin.
