Parkey's kick was partially blocked

Didn't see this posted. I don't know if this will vindicate him in history, but certainly seemed to make the difference.

stopped the video before it gets to the player's hand so you cannot see any deflection.

in that twitter thread linked in the OP. It clearly shows the ball getting tipped by two fingers, at least. I still feel bad for Parkey.

Saw the pictures of Hester's fingers - bruised pretty badly.
Thanks
So good play by the Eagles

and gets the kicker off the spot (this would have been in his head). Shit happens.

Haha. Holy shit, bravo
lol...funny about fans arguing if it was blocked...  
BillKo : 1/6/2019 10:23 pm : link
...Eagle fans can't even take a good luck break without arguing that their team had something to do with the miss.............
If that kick was against us...  
jnoble : 1/6/2019 10:29 pm : link
..it would've hit the upright, hit the crossbar and then flipped backwards over it making it good
Or...  
jnoble : 1/6/2019 10:30 pm : link
...just would've been good straight and true down the middle with yards to spare like normal
I'm not even sure a block...  
BillKo : 1/6/2019 11:10 pm : link
...vindicates him. It's not like there was a defender busting thru.

If it was blocked, guess what, kick it higher......Parkey didn't look to be swinging it all that well on his attempts anyway.............

Yeah, no penetration at all. Have to kick it high enough to clear the line. No great leap or anything either just your basic reaching of hands in the air like every FG attempt ever.
Last-second timeout.

When is the NFL Rules Committee going get some sense and rule out the last-second timeout when opponent is going for a field goal?
Silly. If blocked at that point  
Stan in LA : 1/7/2019 1:00 am : link
It was kicked too low. 100% kicker''s fault.

He would have kicked it 63 yards straight down the middle would have been good from 73 yards and than miss an extra point the next game.
It looked like the guy  
St. Jimmy : 1/7/2019 5:15 am : link
didn't jumped at all. The kick was low to be tipped like that. Good to a see another Eagle with a horseshoe up his ass.

Agree. You should have to call the TO before the teams are set, not before the snap.

Not as simple as it sounds when you try to make one play the exception to rules that otherwise apply.

How do you define "going for a field goal"? Does a team have to notify the officials that they will really kick the FG and not try a fake?

And do the officials then notify the other team that, hey, they said they're going to kick the FG, so you can't call a timeout?

And is the supposedly kicking team then precluded from a pass or run even if, say, the snap is bobbled?

Also, NYG fans should have fond memories of the timeout maneuver. Coughlin loved it and famously used it to great effect in the "JPP-blocked-FG" game in Dallas that propelled Giants to Super Bowl.

I agree, but isn't there an exception for 12 men on the field now that states "when the snap is imminent" (I think it was applied yesterday in one of the games actually). The idea being to limit the # of meaningless plays to reduce injuries. You could make the icing the kicker something like that, but I don't see it happening.
I can't tell from those videos

Anyone see Hestor's reaction afterwards? Seems like if he got a finger on it, he would have wanted everyone to know
Parkey said he thought the wind was going from left to right,  
Ira : 1/7/2019 12:35 pm : link
so he kicked it left of center. But the announcers said there wasn't any wind. So he kicked it to prevent a wind that wasn't there from blowing it and it hit the upright.

He should have judge the wind based on his first kick. First kick started in the middle and drifted left, if he started right-center on the 2nd kick, it would have been good
per ESPN, officially changed to a blocked kick from a miss
