Bears fans relive the horror of the infamous “double doink”


It’s hard to believe it’s been three years since Cody Parkey’s infamous “double doink” forever changed the trajectory of the Bears franchise under head coach Matt Nagy.

The Bears hosted the Eagles in a wildcard playoff game on January 6, 2019, which was decided by a 43-yard field goal attempt by Parkey when time expired. And since then, he has haunted the Bears.

We all know what happened. Parkey’s kick didn’t fall once, but twice, off the crossbar and didn’t enter, cutting Chicago’s playoff run far too short.

Bear fans would like to forget. But they haven’t had the chance yet as Parkey’s infamous “double doink” will forever be anchored in the minds of the NFL world. (Kind of like I’m reminding you now.)

But the drama did not end there. It was Parkey’s appearance on NBC’s “Today Show” the day after his disappearance that sealed his fate with the Bears. Nagy described Parkey’s actions as a “me not us” move, and he was released by the Bears on March 13.

As the NFL world laughs at Bears fans on the third anniversary of the “double doink,” here’s what Bears fans are feeling:
