Chicago Bears Kicker Cody Parkey had a bad day. Four missed field goals against the Lions. The Bears won, but it still probably didn’t feel to good for Parkey in the locker room after.
I know his pain all too well. Going back to my glory days, I was also a kicker for my eighth grade JFL football team. To say we stunk would be an understatement. We went 0-12 and the only way we got first downs was by roughing the kicker penalties, which unfortunately meant that I was on my back every time I took the field. My buddy Brett who was also the long snapper, thought it was funny to snap the ball over my head sometimes to watch me run around and get crushed by the defense. Funny for him, not so funny for me. Kickin’ ain’t easy.
So I feel your pain Cody. Kickers have it rough sometimes. Better luck next week. Go Bears!!!!!!
