I think the competition is all but over.

Bears’ hilarious kicking saga takes another turn with Eddy Pineiro

Quote:
If it seems impossible, believe it. The Bears’ kicking situation has only gotten more hilarious since cutting Cody Parkey.

As soon as this NFL offseason began, Chicago rid itself of the kicker who double-doinked a 43-yard field goal in an NFC wild-card game against the Eagles in the closing seconds, losing the game for the Bears.

That did not solve their troubles, as emphasized by their recent minicamp.

On Friday, coach Matt Nagy brought in the eight wannabe kickers for the same 43-yarder that Parkey could not convert.

They went 2-for-8.

“That’s not good enough,” Nagy told ESPN. “Now I will say this: We always look at the end result of what happens, which is 100% what matters, right? But as we’re learning, two of those eight holds and snaps, it wasn’t 100%. All right. I’ll leave it at that.”

The next possible solution: a kicker with zero field goals to his name.

Chicago traded for Eddy Pineiro on Monday, ESPN first reported, in exchange for what will be a 2021 seventh-round pick if Pineiro plays at least five games this year. Pineiro, a former Florida Gators kicker, went 3-for-3 in field goals in his only preseason game with Oakland last year before going on injured reserve.

He’ll compete for the job with Elliott Fry and Chris Blewitt, and the world is surely rooting for Blewitt.



I guess this is progress if the only thing on the Bears being laughed at is their kicking situation

Pre-Piniero, but gives some detail about the 8 guys. Kinda fun.

More from Matt Nagy on the kicker situation: “That’s about as real as it gets. They were 0-for-3 out there. And for today, that’s not good enough. I mean, we can’t have that. It’s... you just… that’s... we’re going to figure this thing out, but 0-for-3 today, no good.”

Each #Bears kicker missed from the 42 today when they kicked back-to-back. Matt Nagy was unamused. "For us, as evaluators, if they all went 3-for-3 today, we wouldn't be talking about it."
