Almost half a year has passed since the Eagles narrowly advanced in the playoffs thanks to the infamous Double Doink by Cody Parkey resulting in a loss for the Chicago Bears. And, while it’s a moment that Eagles fans continue to celebrate, it’s something Bears’ head coach Matt Nagy isn’t willing to let his team forget anytime soon.
Bears’ running back Tarik Cohn was on Mad Dog Sports Radio earlier this week and told host Adam Schein that Nagy will often throw in clips of their brutal loss during team meetings.
“He just shows us the last seconds of the game. He shows us the crowd’s reaction, our reactions from the sideline, and he just tells us never forget that hurt, you know, and that we want to get back to that place and have a different outcome. So that drives us and motivates to get through the practice every day.”
The Bears had a lot of opportunities during that game to avoid even coming down to a last-second field goal, but while Nagy is hoping the clips of the loss fuel his team heading into 2019, Eagles fans can continue to watch the footage with great joy.
