Cody Parkey had a rough season in 2018 that ended on the worst note possible last week, but the Chicago Bears kicker seems to be handling the adversity better than you could expect him to.

Parkey made an appearance on the “TODAY” show Friday morning to discuss his infamous kick in the NFC Wild Card game, which would have resulted in a win over the Philadelphia Eagles but instead hit the left upright, bounced off the cross bar and out. The 26-year-old opened up about some of the emotions he experienced before and after the 43-yard attempt.

We know how cruel fans can be on social media when athletes make mistakes that cost their team a game, and Parkey was certainly no exception there. However, he says he has been able to avoid going on Twitter or Instagram.

Parkey had to have felt a little better when video evidence showed that his kick was tipped, but unfortunately many fans did not give him the benefit of the doubt. He missed several extra points and field goals during the regular season, and a handful of them hit the upright just like his kick against the Eagles. Whether right or wrong, fans always expect kickers to deliver in big moments. Parkey wasn’t able to do that, but he deserves credit for the way he has handled the backlash.

You Have to Feel Absolutely Terrible for Cody Parkey After Most Important Field Goal Miss Yet.
​Every ​Bears fan, whether in the building or at home, knew exactly what was coming as time expired Sunday night. They just didn't want to believe that it was possible. How could Mitchell Trubisky really fight all the way down the field with under a minute remaining, hand a clear path to glory off to their ​kicker Cody Parkey, only to watch an entire season go up in smoke? All year long, Parkey's been the weak link in the chain. The pimple on the face of the vaunted defense, a special-teamer with a propensity to hit crossbars with regularity. Of course, that wart showed itself in primetime. And, unless you're a blind-to-trauma Eagles fan, you have to feel absolutely horrific for the man.
