The Chicago Bears’ resolution to kneel the ball sooner than Eddy Pineiro’s passed over field aim in Sunday’s one-point loss to the Los Angeles Chargers took an eyebrow-raising twist Tuesday.
Mitchell Trubisky’s kneel place aside the ball on the left hash, but became as soon as that the kicker’s most in model space?
“Or now no longer it’s perfect the aiming functions,” Pineiro said Tuesday, by the Chicago Tribune. “I imply the left hash goes to be a obvious kick than (from) the excellent hash. And it be going to be a obvious kick within the guts.”
The kicker became as soon as requested if he wanted the ball on the left hash to strive the flexibility-packed boot.
“Ummmm,” he said. “I did no longer. But, I imply, it’s what it’s.”
Pushed as to whether the guts of the field would comprise been his need in that be troubled, the kicker shrugged: “I say. I assemble now no longer know.”
The kick slid perfect extensive left. These few feet may comprise made the incompatibility between a accumulate or a loss.
Pineiro looked as if it may well be pleased that his tiny but distinguished admission may compose more anxiousness for his head coach, who has been avoiding questions concerning the resolution to kneel.
“You perfect bought me on that one,” he said. “Damn.”
Or now no longer it’s unclear whether the kicker expressed his need of where he’d admire the ball at that moment, in that be troubled to coach Matt Nagy. Whether or now no longer he did and became as soon as uncared for or did no longer, Pineiro’s admission added one more excruciating detail for a Bears fan imperfect lamenting what may comprise been one more time.
