This is just going to hurt Chicago Bears fans even more than they already are right now.
Bears General Manager Ryan Pace’s decision to cut kicker Robbie Gould has always been questionable, but never more so than now, after a missed field goal cost the Bears a Wild Card victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Cody Parkey has been slandered and threatened since Sunday night at Soldier field when he hit a potential game winning FG off the upright and then the crossbar to end the Bears dream season and hopes of geting to the Super Bowl.
Since Pace cut Gould just before the start of the 2016 regular season. Since then, Gould has played for the Giants and 49ers and gone a combined 82-for-85 on field goals, the best accuracy rate in the NFL over three years.
Bears’ kickers, meanwhile, have gone a cumulative 60-for-79 over the last three years, the absolute worst in the NFL. Ouch.
