What? Worse. Not even close. At the moment, of course, I was stunned after the Diggs miracle, but I was over it pretty quick. All that fate and karma stuff. Bang bang lucky play.

This was a 41 yard FG, at home in front of fans, and the way the guy missed it after the same recent misses - it would be much harder for me to get over.

Minny got completely lucky = doody like that happens. This had nothing to do with luck.

Nah. Field goal missed happen all the time. Parkey missed 11 kicks this year. See Windy's reaction. Bears fans expected him to miss. Yeah, it sucks, but the saints ending was way worse

After he made the one before the ice the kicker TO I knew we were screwed.... The kick may have been tipped a bit which again does me no good

Sounds about right. Survive and advance. I thought we had lost seeing the long Bears KO return and the long pass completion down the sidelines.

But one caution to Saints fans pointing to the regular season drubbing. This does not appear to be the same team that got smoked by the Saints in New Orleans. This is still the Saints’ game to lose but somehow the Eagles are finding a way.

I think that thought is being whispered in Philly but keeps getting kicked down the road. The Wentz injuries don’t help.

Replay shows that the kick was actually tipped/partially blocked, so the line deserves some blame here, rather than just Parkey.

Also, I'm just gonna leave this here....

Saints aren't exactly the same team either (and not in a good way).

I’m just now seeing some of that frame by frame analysis which seems to indicate a wisp of a tip by the Eagles which shifts some of the blame away from the Bears kicker and makes it more of “Eagles won” and not just “Bears kicker choked”. Still, it wasn’t enough to notice in real time nor by any of the commentators I heard.

I expect to see windy all over national TV and social media this weekend when he kicks the 43 yard field goal and wins a free year's worth of Goose Island...

(lemme guess, Goose Island isn't good and it's not worth trying?) :lol:

I bet Kevin Butler can still hit a 43-yarder

(obscure?) 8)

In all seriousness, I bet a lot of former high school and college kickers show up.

Eddie Murray, Brad Palazzo and I'm sure Seth Marler could all still hit it too. I'd wonder about any eligibility rules.

My first thought was, "they're gonna be giving away a lot of beer". Makes me wonder if there will be other qualifying restrictions that are not mentioned here. The average Joe isn't making one from that far, but there are likely dozens of former kickers, and a lot of soccer players, who will drive a decent distance this weekend to participate. Another thought, how the weather looking? We're supposed to get a little snow, so if you are getting more (plus wind), that's another wrinkle...
