A beer company brewed up some defense for Cody Parkey and issued a challenge for all the “haters.” Buzz60’s Mercer Morrison has the story.
A Chicago brewery is giving anyone who believes they could have made the field-goal attempt Chicago Bears kicker Cody Parkey missed against the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild Card Round on Sunday the chance to prove it.
As the Bears trailed by one point with 10 seconds remaining, Parkey had a shot to be the hero with a 43-yard field goal. Instead, doink…doink.
It was initially called a missed field goal, but the NFL later ruled Monday that Philadelphia defensive tackle Treyvon Hester got a hand on the ball, and the league changed the official designation to a blocked kick.
Regardless, the Bears’ season ended with a heartbreaking 16-15 loss.
And the kicker who missed the crucial attempt received no shortage of criticism. As a result, Goose Island Beer Company wants to give Parkey’s critics a chance to back up their talk.
