It's all about who you replace with him with. As I said in the chat, he hit 91% of his kicks in 2017, top 8 in the league. Thats why he got the money he got, and many of us around here were happy at the time to have him replacing Barth. I get the raw emotion of it, and he wasn;t great this year...but the facts are the facts. Those longing for Gould need to remember he was essentially Parkey this year before he left.
As for cutting Parkey, it's a 4 million dollar hit. We have 20 mill in cap space and I can see ways to create 9.5 million more in space. Here are the free agent options: - Gould - Aldrick Rosas(we should know him well) - Will Lutz - Jason Meyers - Josh Lambo - Harrison Butker - Kai'imi Fairbirn
Ugh... of course it came down to a missed FG. We Vikings fans know all about that.
Maybe they should have picked up Forbath back when Parkey had that nightmare of a game? It does go to show you that when you need to pick a bunch of FGs to win a game, you don't deserve to win it. Score TDs if you want to win.
