Really?!?

Chicago Bears kicker Cody Parkey went on NBC’s “Today” show on Friday morning to talk about his botched 43-yard field-goal attempt that cost his team a first-round playoff victory Sunday.  

“I didn’t know it was tipped or anything,” Parkey said in an interview on the TODAY show Friday. “I saw it hit the upright and the crossbar and said, ‘Surely it will go in.’ Unfortunately, it bounced towards me.”

“I’m disappointed that I let the fans, my teammates and the whole organization down,” Parkey added. “I’ll continue to keep my head held high because football is what I do, it’s not who I am.”

Some Bears fans, angry over the loss, even sent Parkey death threats on social media. 

Example below: 

“Smart man,” TODAY co-host Craig Melvin said.

Parkey reportedly signed a four-year, $15 million contract last March with the Bears, with $9 million guaranteed. 

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the Bears owe Parkey $3.5 million next season whether he’s on the roster or not.

After this Today Show appearance, he probably has zero Bears fans left. 

At least he has his wife.
