Jackson was dressed but didn't see the field. Why?

Because they had an extra spot available with Burton's inactive, and felt if multiple injuries struck he'd be better than a player out of position, but not better than a healthy deon bush.

The kicker blew it at the end, but at the end of the game your offense gives you the lead in the 4th.  The Bears defense has to step up on that last Eagles drive.

Blaming Parkey is the lazy fan response. Everyone deserves a little blame. The last 6 minutes you had the offense blow a chance to ice the game with a long drive (had a quick 3 and out). The defense allowed Foles to march down the field and score a TD. And then Parky kicked the ball too low and/or the line allowed too much pressure so the ball got tipped. 

Having said that, if there's a better option out there, the Bears need to go another direction. I don't want them to be in this same position next year and have to rely on Parkey under all that pressure.

The difference between the Eagles being super bowl champions last year and the falcons beating them 16-15 at their stadium was a failed goal line pass. 

Yes, I too would like the bears to have done all the plays that work and none of the things that don't, but sometimes the other team plays well too, and in a close game the thing that happened last went against the bears.

The Bears defense not “stepping up” is like reason No. 72 why they lost. 

Looking at the box this morning, Tarik having four total touches, (1 carry, 3 catches) is criminal. All he does is make plays and probably your most explosive weapon. We saw that on the last return. That’s on Nagy. 

The eagles linebackers have some serious speed. I honestly don't know if Cohen would have been very effective.

While not blaming parkey probably seems high minded, where would so many of the dominant playoff teams be if their kicker missed the last kick of the game? Patriots aren't patrioting so often that's for sure. Ravens aren't ravening. Bears don't get to super bowl in 06. But nobody in those games said "well if the patriots did this prior then they wouldn't have need the kick"

Yeah bottom line Parkey hit the uprights yet again on a reasonable field goal. Nobody played perfectly last night but obviously the big dramatic double-doink is going to be the focus, and Parkey does deserve plenty of blame for continuing to suck all year long.

He needs to be cut. Maybe he can resurrect his career somewhere else, but he's not going to get redemption in Chicago.

I would have really enjoyed finding out, and not guessing about it today.

I do think he was the guy philly zeroed in on stopping and burton being out helped it be even easier.

The fans are going to go overboard on the placekicker, all fans always do, but he should have made that kick.  Was from a reasonable distance, wasn't too cold, no wind.  You have to make that.

I don't know why anyone would want to be a kicker.  I know the money is nice, but you have the chance to be remembered in the worst way for the rest of your life.

I would be a kicker and if I had a parkey moment I would just retire and move to Mexico.

I agree. I think my one big gripe last night is that Nagy was too conservative to start the game. I think if they come out and play their typical varied offense (like in the 2nd half) they win easy. But for some reason, maybe to play safe with Mitch, they were super conservative. The Eagles using a spy really helped them, as did Mitch's hammy tweak or whatever he had, but if they had gone vertical more to start I think that would have opened up more of the running game.

Millions + you move to a different city and 90% of the people there have no idea who you are or what you did in your previous job. Plus, if you end up making a FG to win a game, all that crap is usually forgotten.

Hopefully Broncos hire Munchak this week, but I won't feel safe until all 8 spots are filled.

Speaking of kickers, O'Donnell sure shanked that 4th quarter punt giving the Eagles an extra 10-20 yards of field possession on the winning drive.  Although his coffin corner punt in the 1st after the offsides was amazing.

Browns - Kitchens

Cardinals - Gase

Packers - McDaniels

Bucs - Arians

Pretty tough year to figure out.

I agree with this. Watson has worst oline of any QB not named manning.

And my comment has nothing to do with potential...Trubisky has just as much, if not more potential.  Watson played horrible over the weekend but he has been one of the better QB's in football from day 1.

Parkey's kick was blocked. Why are Bears fans still blaming him?? Easier than blaming the offense that only scored 6 points I guess??

It was tipped, not blocked. 

He missed 11 kicks this season. In the biggest moment of the game, he failed to put the ball through the uprights. It's a very simple concept.

Aside from the kick, I'm still wondering where Khalil Mack was.

Do kicks that defensive players get their hand on and redirect the ball not count as blocks? I agree though, he sucks because he should kicked it so hard that he blasted Hester's finger off without the ball changing course. He only made all 3 "untipped" kicks that game.

Or, you know, maybe a playoff offense scoring only 6 points against an average defense deserves some blame too?

Simple concept to just blame the kicker who had nothing to do with the loss though. Makes sense.

Parkey seemed to be kicking shorter all day, as if to not overkick.  On the kick he made when Pederson iced him, it wouldn't have gone longer than 47/48 yards.  Then the missed kick went halfway up the upright, he tried way harder. (And the ball getting tipped wouldn't send it further)
