Do Bears fans owe Cody Parkey an apology?

When Cody Parkey missed a potential game-winning field goal for the Chicago Bears, fans jumped at the chance to boo and even lob death threats at him. As it turns out, the kick was actually tipped by a Philadelphia Eagles defender, and many are calling for Bears fans to give their kicker a break. Some fans, however, are saying it's his job to hit those kicks and he deserves the boos. What do you think? 🏈

With the game on the line, the Bears turned to Cody Parkey to hit a 43-yard field goal to win. He missed with a double-clanger off the left upright and crossbar.

Parkey jogged off the field to boos and online death threats. Even when it was revealed the ball was tipped at the line, some Bears fans still justified Parkey's treatment. Should they apologize to him instead?

People jumped down Parkey's throat like he was the only one responsible for this loss. Where was the defense when the Eagles scored the go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter? Where was the offense the entire game? 

Hell, not even the missed kick was really his fault. It was obviously tipped at the line. Fans expecting perfection should look at themselves in the mirror. Parkey deserves an apology.

Whatever happened to accountability? Parkey's only job is to kick field goals and he failed when it mattered most with the season and a divisional round spot on the line. That's deserving of jeers.

It's not like this hasn't been a trend all season. He missed 10 kicks this year, including three PATs that are about 10 yards closer than the kick he missed against the Eagles. He's been bad all year and he needs to be called out on it. He deserves the hate.
