Bears coach Matt Nagy, GM Ryan Pace critical of kicker Cody Parkey after Today show appearance

The heat is officially on Cody Parkey.

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace confirmed the team's concern about the kicker position after Parkey's potential game-winning field goal was tipped and hit the field goal post twice in the final seconds against the Philadelphia Eagles in the wild-card round of this year's NFL playoffs.

"We know we need to get better there, and it's an area of focus," Pace said at his season-ending press conference. "There will definitely be competition."

During Monday's press conference, head coach Matt Nagy was critical of his kicker's appearance on the Today show. 

“I didn’t think it was a ‘we’ thing,” Nagy said.

Nagy also claims Parkey didn't tell him about the television appearance in his exit interview. In reference to Parkey's field goal attempt against the Eagles, Nagy said “The end result was, we didn’t make it."
