    That was heartbreaking. I knew Parkey was going to cost them a playoff game.

    For a neutral, that was top-notch entertainment value.

    Insane , then 20 seconds before he makes it with ease.

    Might of been the plan from the beginning , call a time out just before the kick to rattle him

    It was definitely the plan. It's called "icing the kicker" and coaches do it all the time. I'm not sure how effective it is statistically speaking, but it appeared to work yesterday.

    It doesn't work all that much . I watch a fair amount of games and would say maybe 25%

    It was slightly tipped by an Iggle, NFL counted it as a block instead of a missed FG

    An old analysis found that icing the kicker is not really effective, in fact it generally increases the chances of success of a kick. http://www.espn.com/blog/statsinfo/p...ctive-practice

    It was obvious which head coach had coached in the playoffs before. The Bears shouldn’t have gone for 2 points on their TD that early in the second half. Game would have been tied even with Parkey’s choke job.

    not really, as the Eagles then would have kicked instead of going for two, would have been 17-16. Still would have needed to get the FG.

    Stranger two point was the Chargers going for it to go up 17 instead of 16. Sure I get it made it a 3 score game but if you missed, then it is just a 15 point game so only one 2 point is needed.

    All coaches now seem to want to pull out their dicks to show they are aggressive.

    Even stranger was Seattle not having anyone else on their roster who can place kick, especially since Janikowski is 90 years old and weighs 300 lbs.

    true but odd as it might be, it made the game closer. Two 2 point conversions and went for it 4th and 6 when normally Carhole would have kicked a FG

    Heh. Indeed.

    I guess the 2nd worst FG pct in the NFL was a bigger factor.

    But, c’mon. 43 yards should be almost automatic for a pro. And there was no wind at Soldier field yesterday.... maybe that threw him off?
