The 100 Greatest Athletes of the Complex Decade

40. Devin Hester

Sport: Football
Bonafides From 2002-2012: 3x Pro Bowler, 4x All-Pro First Team
Devin Hester has destroyed more records over the last three years than Pitbull. The Bears returner has single-handedly turned special teams into the most important phase of Chicago's game and made coordinator Dave Toub one of the most coveted coaches in football (watch your back, Lovie). When the Bears struggled to create offense during their 2006 Super Bowl season, there was actually talk of having D-Hest line up in shotgun and just create with his feet. Yes, Rex Grossman is that bad Devin Hester is that good. Twelve punts, five kicks, and one missed field goal, all taken to the house. The greatest returner ever, Devin Hester you are ridiculous.
