Cody Parkey double-doink replay analysis shows Bears fans have another player to blame

This won’t absolve Cody Parkey.

Bears fans just have another man to pin their misery.

Further examination of the double-doink — a phrase that will haunt the Windy City for years — shows the Eagles’ Treyvon Hester tipped the botched 43-yard field goal attempt in the dying seconds of the Sunday night wildcard matchup.

“Tipped off my fingertips,” the defensive tackle told reporters after the 16-15 shocker. “Felt good … [but] actually, I thought I didn’t get enough of it, I thought it was going to go in. When I saw it going in, I turned back around [away from the goal posts]. Then I heard everybody screaming, I was like, oh, [bleep] … he missed it.”

Just enough of it to send Parkey off the field to a chorus of boos from the depths of Soldier Field.

To only exacerbate matters, Parkey had made his initial attempt, though it was waved off as the Eagles called timeout to try to ice him.

"You can't make this up," Parkey told reporters. "I feel terrible. I let the team down. That's on me. I have to own it. I have to be a man. Unfortunately, that's the way it went today."
