Cody Parkey had a bad day at the office. Do you have faith that he can bounce back for the Chicago Bears?
While almost the entire game was executed perfectly by the Chicago Bears they did have a big issue when it came to kicker Cody Parkey. Cody Parkey missed two extra points, going 2-4 on the day. He also missed two field goals, going 0-2. Cody Parkey hit the goal post more than he hit the wide netted area in between the two posts. That is nearly impossible to do.
It is tough to have faith in a kicker that erratic. After the game head coach Matt Nagy expressed nothing but confidence in his kicker. Coming into the game had not missed an extra point on 28 attempts. He has missed three field goals, but was a respectable 13-16 on the year.
Still, 28-30 and 15-20 is not a great look. Robbie Gould is 17-18 and 18-19 respectively for what’s it worth.
So, do the Chicago Bears do anything? Do they continue to roll with Parkey? Do you have any confidence in Parkey?
To answer the first question, unlikely. It was a bad day on what has been a good year. They have to continue to roll with Parkey. Of course, the idea is that this was a bad day. It ends with day. When things string on top of each other problems happen.
With that in mind, his play over the next few weeks will be under watch. As for the confidence, I would go into next week with the same confidence as this week. However, next week, I would have every intention of losing confidence a lot with another poor day.
