Fairly easy to tell you who to watch here, and that’s Devin Hester. Hester is one of the most dangerous return men in the NFL of all-time. The Saints have a great deal of respect for Hester. Hester hasn’t run one back in a while (2011 season), and while many of you might have just cursed me for bringing up a stat curse, he’s one that can’t be allowed to get space. You can only look for Thomas Morstead to play a huge part in helping pin Hester where he can’t have the ability to break a big play (similar to what was done against Patrick Peterson).

Hartley did miss a field goal last week, whcih would have given the Saints a 40+ point showing Monday Night, and kicking at Soldier Field is like opening up a Christmas gift from a relative you don’t see much, you seriously have no clue what you are going to get. We can only expect Hartley to boot it through when we need him too.
