(670 The Score) Five days after heartbreakingly missing a potential game-winning field goal in the waning seconds of a season-ending loss to the Eagles, Bears kicker Cody Parkey on Friday appeared in front of a national television audience on NBC's "Today Show" to relive his failure.

He said little, if anything, new that he didn't mention in his postgame comments Sunday. And the entire decision and scene was puzzling, including in the eyes of former Bears long snapper Patrick Mannelly, who joined the Bernstein & McKnight Show to discuss it.

"I don't get it," Mannelly said. "I just don't understand it.

"If it was Robbie Gould, Brad Maynard, Adam Podlesh -- three teammates I respected a lot and we're good friends -- I would honestly say, 'What the heck are you doing?'
