Update: Cody Parkey is a disgrace to place kickers

Sun Nov 11, 2018 2:53 pm

I think it’s time to call this deal a bust. He’s useless.

They can’t have him around if they make it to the playoffs.

I don’t care about the money at this point. You can’t afford the losses from his inconsistency.

This.

The sucky performance is even more expensive than the contract. They need to bring people in this week for tryouts.

Consistent? Consistently hits the uprights. Why they handed over the $$ to him this off season is beyond me.

He sucks Donkey dicks.

Damn scary thought if we have a close game.

Maybe bring in the ex Cowboy kicker for a tryout.

Speaking to #Bears kicker Cody Parkey this week, he doesn't come down to Soldier Field during the week because of the commute issues, Maybe he should re-think it.

So making 4.5 million a year and you can't practice with your own team. WTF you gotta be kidding me.
Somebody needs to Uber his ass to the practice.

I only thought I didn't like him before that. I'm 6'1" and 235 lbs let me catch that puny son of a bitch in person and I will go to jail with a smile on my face.
Not from Illinois so how much time for bitch slapping a bitch back into his momma womb?

Parkey has to go. This shit can't continue. We're well on the way to being a playoff team and it's just not acceptable.

The team doesn't practice at Soldier Field, they practice at Halas Hall. He stays with the team when he should take a drive in town at least a few times a week. The wind is the problem in Soldier Field.

This is really frustrating.

" we cant have him around if we make the playoffs"

his kicking is looking like a real reason we might not even make the playoffs. you make the change like you would any other position, you find a replacement. Imagine missing another crucial FG in OT to send us through like in miami? cant risk it.

Not surprised for a couple of reasons.

1) Nagy doesn't seem like the kind of guy that is going to discuss this problem right after a game to the media, no less. This is an in house issue.

2) I think they believe in him and it is kind of like the Crosby deal in GB, let him respond next week. If he doesn't next week, then I believe it will happen.

Bring on the tryouts. Ideally you find a guy through tryouts like they found Gould back in the day. At the worst he kicks as badly as Cody Parkey.

I agree except I don't think Margarine is anything close to Crosby. Crosby earned a bad streak, Margarine hasn't earned anything but a 4.5 million contract and a phobia for traffic.

Guys. He had a bad day. He's actually not that bad. Statistically, he's one of the most accurate kickers in history. If he has another game like that, then launch him. You're not going to find a kicker on the street that will be better. That's why they are on the street.

Whether or not anyone beats him out bring in some kickers to scare the living crap out of him to get his crap right.

We will need him to be right as the season goes on. If not get rid of him. He is barely over 50% on the year. That is not acceptable.

He’s at 72% after today, which sucks. But it’s well above 50%. If he missed his next 8 he’d be at 50%.

I realize there's almost no choice for players to criticize after a game like today, but some of you guys are getting a little wacky with the Parkey hate.

He's hit an excellent % for his career, an excellent % last year, and a good % this year until today.

It's one bad (and incredibly bizarre) day, people. Sure, if it turns into a multigame skid, you need to start thinking, but not one day. He didn't even have a single miss that was off by more than a foot.

Robbie Gould hit 84.6% of his FG's the year before the Bears let him go. He was at 75% the year before, his lowest completion percentage while with the Bears. Was never below 96.6% in Extra Points made.

I find it it funny that the talk was Gould had the yips and had to go but Parkey's just in a funk and a great kicker in comparison. Also take into account Gould kicked in Soldier's Field in the Weather all those years and still compiled those stats.

Also take into account the distance of the extra point.

No one is saying that Parkey is without fault, or doesn't deserve a great deal of criticism. But to think you're going to go out on the street and find a better kicker than Parkey, at this point in the season is ludicrous. You want to bring someone in to push him...fine. But you're not going to find a better kicker, who's just sitting on his couch during week 10 of the season.
