Chicago Bears kicker, Cody Parker had a chance to kick a game winning field goal against the Philadelphia Eagles in the playoffs and just missed.
While the Bear’s fans rained boos on the devastated kicker, his teamates raced towards him to console him, knowing he did everything he could to prepare, and gave it his all.
They understood more than anyone how hard he worked and how difficult his job was.
The next week, the Philadelphia Eagles seemed on the verge to score a game winning touchdown when quarterback Nick Foles’ pass went through receiver Alshon Jeffery hands and was picked off by the New Orleans Saints, effectively ending the game.
Philadelphia’s quarterback Nick Foles immediately raced towards Jeffery to console him. Jeffrey said Foles told “me he loved playing with me and we wouldn’t have won a Super Bowl without me."
Jeffery had never dropped a pass in the playoffs before.
Media outlets rightly focused on how great teamates showed leadership, supporting each other.
On the flip side, the devastated fans vented their frustration on the team they loved, right when the team needed its support the most.
What would happen if the next time a co-worker or family member makes a mistake, we race towards them to console and support them?
Thanks for caring!
