Dwayne Wade Commends Bears Kicker Cody Parkey After Heartbreaking Loss

1 Min Read

It’s always good when professional athletes support each other through thick and thin, and that’s just what Miami Heat guard and noted Chicago Bears fan Dwyane Wade did after witnessing kicker Cody Parkey miss a potential game-winning field goal on Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles.

After Parkey’s miss, which hit both the left goalpost and the crossbar before dropping into the end zone, Bears fans rained down boos as the kicker exited Solider Field. Following the game, Parkey sat through what was likely to be the toughest media session of his career, answering questions respectfully and eloquently.

Wade, who is no stranger to difficult media sessions, took notice of the kicker’s professionalism during such a rough time.

The missed kick ended the Bears first playoff run in eight years earlier than many expected. That will certainly sting for a while.

Hopefully, Parkey’s teammates take notice of Wade’s words and lift up the kicker during an offseason where many will tear him down.
