The Bears gave up 16 points; that's nothing in the big scheme of the playoffs games. The Defense did great. Chicago should have won!!!
A lot of unflattering jokes floating around social media about Cody Parkey; let’s remember he completed the first three field goals. As good fans, we can't blame him for the game loss.
The Offense should have been able to score more touchdowns! Parkey signed a three year deal with Da Bears organization for a guaranteed $9 million smack-a-roos; he gets $3.5 million next season and if the Bears waive him, it's a $5 million in dead cap so it’s more affordable to keep Parkey. Pace brings competition for Parkey but ultimately, Parkey may be the kicker for the 2019 season. If your one of those grumpy "I Blame Parkey" fans, there is a campaign you can put money into and buy out Parkey's contract, https://www.gofundme.com, BUT really, give the guy a break!
Who is Chuck Pagano, the Bears new Defensive Coordinator? Nagy hired him, and we can all agree, Coach Matt Nagy is the real deal, a good coach, respected by his players and the fans. Nagy had the ultimate final decision on all coaches on his staff, this decision to bring Pagano in is a Home-Run hire!! Pagano is extremely respected by players and coaches in the NFL for his six years of experience as a Head Coach for the Indianapolis Colts. In his first season with the Colts, Pagano was diagnosed with Leukemia, went through treatment, beat the Cancer and took the Colts to the playoffs #ChuckStrong.

Until next season.... Goodbye Bears, we loved watching you all season, we will miss our half time swims in Lake Pacific; drinking Little Ditka's via Eco-friendly straws; listening to Denise, Jim and Kurt yell at the announcers; Scott’s hilarious commentary; singing the Bears Fight Song; the amazing bar and kitchen crews that provided fresh drinks and delicious food; and the 710 Chicago Bears family!
