    Rozner: For Konerko, farewell just about perfect

    Paul Konerko has to be considered the second- or third-best hitter in White Sox history, according to Barry Rozner.

    Paul Konerko will probably be remembered most for his World Series grand slam, but he could just as easily be remembered as the consummate pro, a class act who cared about representing his uniform and his game at all times, a brilliant hitter who sought perfection at the plate, knowing it was at best fleeting and at worst impossible.

    Devin Hester became the NFL's all-time leader in return touchdowns Thursday night with a 62-yard punt return, and he also scored a touchdown on an end-around for the Atlanta Falcons, who have done a much better job of getting production out of him than the Bears did the previous two seasons.
