I was at that game.

Thought it was in the bag after the Earl fumble recovery/TD to start the game. 

Rest of weekend was a blur of drinks, costumes, and food. Think there was baseball playoffs going on as well, maybe?

Great weekend, great town.

@jtannenwald: Here’s a great photo from @phillydotcom staff photographer Yong Kim of Treyvon Hester reaching out to get a piece of Cody Parkey’s game-deciding field goal attempt: https://twitter.com/jtannenwald/status/1082104555255578625/photo/1

 

Here's an even better look:

So I guess this should now be called the Triple Doink Game???

Seems like most kickers suck now.  Not even a thing anymore.

Moving PAT's back has put them all on roller skates.

Huh? 

FG% was literally the highest its ever been in nfl history this year and 8 of the 10 most accurate kickers of all time are active players despite teams attempting field goals much longer than they used to. 

There are guys with FG percentages that are better from 50+ yards than what kickers were making 30-40 yard field goals at a decade ago.

If Bears fans are still harping on Parkey and not focusing on why the oline broke down on the FGA, the 2 point conversion, or the playcalling in general, then they’re missing what really happened.

That may be what really happened in that game, but I don't know of too many championship caliber teams who have a K making only 76% of his FGs. That is a problem.

Parkey outscored the rest of the team.  Bears fans should focus on that.  And the fact that their #1 defense allowed the Eagles to march down the field for the winning TD.

Huh? Bears allowed 16 points, 1.4 points under their league leading ppg average. O was off, no doubt about it, but Cohen and Mitch drove them down field with under a minute and put their K in position to win the game. 

Should Charger fans focus on the fact that the entire offense was outscored by Badgley. That Rivers only had 160 yards? That the the youngest QB ever to play in the playoffs marched the Ravens downfield in the 4th Q and was in position to win in the final seconds after being overmatched all day? No, they are moving on and people are giving them a legit shot at upsetting the Patriots. Winning is all that matters in the playoffs.

Yes, it was defensive low scoring game.  But the Bears #1 D couldn't stop the Eagles on a 12-play, 60 yard drive to win the game. Should have never come down to Parkey.  Where was Khalil Mack all game?  Bears had 1 sack. Where was the Bears' offense?  Jordan Howard?  Cohen with 4 touches?  Yes, Parkey's miss is the obvious, but whole team really came up small when they needed it.

I don't think anyone's denying that Chicago played well defensively. But they did give up a touchdown drive in crunch time. And Khalil Mack was pretty much invisible all game.  The fact that Parkey was viciously booed at the low point of his career and is reportedly getting death threats is unbelievable.

I get booing him at the end but you can't overlook their defense, the strength of the team, couldn't make a stop to win the game either.  Parkey was just their last chance but not their only chance to win the game.

I get it. There is a school of thought that kickers don't matter. Score more TDs, stop the other team and you don't even need them. I believe K's are important especially in post season play where chances are games might be tight and low scoring. Bears management didn't. 

Sure, in that game yesterday there were many factors that contributed to the loss including rostering a 75% FG kicker. Parkey hit his average yesterday, and it wasn't good enough.

No one was surprised in Chicago that Parkey didn't nail the winner. I even predicted it in earlier in this thread. If it came down to needing a FG to win I had zero faith in Parkey to deliver. I even turned off the TV before the kick. He missed 10 this year and clanked 7 of those off the post. Other than Boswell and Dan Bailey, Parkey was the worst K on a playoff contending team. 

In Super Bowl XXV the Bills should of scored more points too. They had the #2 O in the league. Having Norwood hitting 62% of his FGs shouldn't of made a difference until it did in a 20-19 game.

How good would NO fans feel replacing Lutz with a guy like Parkey for their playoff run? Swap a 93% guy with a 76% guy. Shouldn't matter as long as they score enough TDs and make stops. The Bills thought the same thing in 91. I just believe it's a poor personnel decision for a team trying to build a winner, but yes, not the only reason for losing.

I think so. I think the gods have finally evened up for that mishap 30 years ago.

I'm not saying the kicker doesn't matter. He should be able to make a 43 yard FG. But the Bears are known for their defense,  not the kicker. And the defense failed every bit as much as Parkey if not more. Parkey had 1 chance to win the game; the defense had 12. All we heard about was the big, bad, Bears defense and they didn't get it done when it mattered.

Yes. Letting a bad offensive team score 16 pts wasn’t good.

You seem to be letting the defense off the hook. Parkey scored more than half of the Bears points.  The #1 defense just had to not give up a 12 play, 60 yard, 4 minute drive. That was their first chance to win the game. 

But yes, he should be able to make a 43 yard FG.

Yo Flap, can you mark yourself as “safe”?

He's in the witness protection plan. Lol. That's the risk you take when you run your mouth all week.

I hope Bears fans lay off Parkey.

Do you know what Cubs fans did to Bartman?

No chance they lay off. They will ignore it forever and place the blame squarely on Parkey

The broadcaster's name is Rickie Ricardo (yes, really) and he's the Eagles Spanish language announcer.  I believe he also does Phillies games.

I was hoping for a Spanish translation of "doink" but "No señor! No señor!" was a pretty good line.

Yes imo. I will be shocked if the Chargers make a game of it. Rookie coach, hit-and-miss offense = trouble against NE in January. The Chargers will need to play a LOT better to have a shot to win Sunday. To their benefit, they're probably well aware of it and will try to adjust.

Nah, Rivers is a gamer. I expect a great game from them.

Plus they are a West Coast team traveling East for the second time in 2 weeks.  That will take a toll.

It may. But remember that the Chargers have traveled to Buffalo, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Baltimore this year and have won all 4 games. Plus they went to London and won.

Why don’t they just stay in the east coast and not fly back and forth?

It's that 'whats more important, not flying or the comfort of preparing at home" question.  Staying away from home, on a different practice field, away from all your staff, facilities, trainers, weight rooms, etc. can also take a toll.

Kick officially ruled as a blocked fg. saw mention of this yesterday, expected to see it mentioned here somewhere. not that it changes anything, or maybe Parkey's career doesn't end here.

Ya, was heavily discussed yesterday.  Not sure how much damage that finger did to the direction of the kick but either way it shouldn't fully be on him.  Guy has to feel pretty horrible right now.
