If your Scouts knew what the F they were doing, GM Ryan Pace then why are you insisting on a clause that IF Roquan does not make the team, then you can reduce the $18 million the NFL says you MUST PAY Roquan ? And what is this shit that you want to pay Roquan in LATER YEARS when you OWE Roquan NOW the mandated $ 18 million ?

-decreases the Bears’ financial responsibility if Smith is cut and signs with another team

-decreases the money in earlier years and increases the money in later years

-decreases if Roquan Smith is charged with lowering his helmet making one tackle

-gm Ryan Pace 14 wins 3 years


The Bears wouldn’t owe Roquan Smith the full amount of what their contract of $18 million says in a host of different situations if Roquan signs what Ryan Pace is offering.


Well yeah they do. And they have to pay Roquan that $ 18 million earlier not later.


The Bears want to be able to kick Roquan off the team and not pay him the total if he is cut by the Bears and gets another job with another team. What Roquan haggles with a new team in that scenario, is Roquan’s business – not the Chicago Bears’ business. After all the Bears fired Roquan in that scenario.


That is what this is all about.


For the Bears to put THAT CLAUSE in the contract for Roquan to argue about, the Bears have to fire Roquan – and still think they can reduce what the Bears pay Roquan.


That is just wrong. Look this Bear’s GM Ryan Pace has gone 5-11 last year without Roquan. They need him.  Bears need difference makers.  Instead he is playing on Roquan to just cave-in and sign anyway.  What if Roquan gets injured ?  He would be getting the lesser amount up-front and he would let the Bears off the hook for part of his $18 later-on too.


That’s bullshit.


2016 Ryan Pace was 3-13 for the Bears.


And 2015 Ryan Pace was 6-10.


Ryan Pace hasn’t done shit since taking over as GM for the Chicago Bears and now he has a new unproven head coach too.


The Bears are doing all they can to get better than 14 wins the last 3 years?


I do NOT see it personally.  Not in these negotiations.  The bears are trying to get out of paying Roquan what the NFL mandates they must pay Roquan.


Now the NFL is TELLING Ryan Pace that he MUST pay Roquan Smith $18 million. The players negotiated for this in the latest bargaining agreement with the NFL and the players’ association.


Now Ryan Pace is trying to send the message to the world that he’d like to NOT PAY Roquan $18 million if he can get Roquan to sign that.


I am NOT signing that if I were Roquan.  It is too easy to get injured.  Now he has MISSED time to learn his LB position and how the new coach plans to fix the team.


And make no mistake the Chicago Bears with 14 wins total in the most-recent 3 years, need fixing.


That is not my fault that I say Roquan should NOT sign this bullshit contract from this loser GM Ryan Pace.




Ryan Pace has ADDED WORDS to Roquan’s contract that Ryan Pace does NOT have to pay Roquan the signing bonus in a timely manner EITHER.


Pay the mandated signing bonus but over a longer number of years.  That is bullshit too.  Pardon my God Damn English.


It’s a bad contract.


Everyone knows that.


So here’s the argument : I scouted the nation and determined our pick would be Roquan but if he doesn’t make the team I don’t want to pay him the full $18 million NFL says I must. I also want to pay him the $ 18 million not in today’s money but in 2023 money. There is a time value to money. Pay Roquan later. Now whose damn fault is that Dave Wannstedt that Roquan hasn’t signed such a silly-assed worded contract ?



Dave Wannstedt you’re a fool of the highest order to criticize Roquan Smith on this you God Damn idiot.


And Roquan takes exception to MORE in the contract offer from Ryan Pace such as the helmet rule.  The Bears want to be able to not pay the $ 18 million if Roquan ever is called with that penalty of lowering his helmet.  That was not a concern in his college days but Ryan Pace wants to MAKE IT ONE now.


This is the 14th day of hold-out and 9th missed practice with Bears in dire need of a linebacker today.  Don’t expect Roquan anytime soon unless the Bears fix this shit.  The season starts this week for the Bears.



I am RIGHT. But I am way too mad to tell folks to STFU making EXCUSES about how Mark Richt was mistreated here ?



We played in the national championship game.


We WON The SEC Championship.


We recruited the consensus # 1 recruiting class in the nation.


We are ranked # 2 in the nation consensus in EVERY poll.


We WON the Rose Bowl.  We beat Oklahoma. We beat Auburn.


We beat Notre Dame at Touchdown Jesus.


We lost to no cupcake and beat Mississippi State.


We have 2 really good quarterbacks.


We have 10 really good OL.


We have 4 top-notch running backs.


We recruited some really good wide receivers.


We have 3 of the top TE in the nation.


Our Assistant Head Football Coach and running backs’ coach Dell McGee kicked Mark Richt off his high school program’s campus and told him to never come back.


So I have to hear excuses 3 years later about our offense 2015 ?  Forget you.


And DAILY some bullshit dumb shit wants to tell us that :


“2015 Chubb was hurt, Andrews left for NFL, Schotty only had 1 year, nothing to work with, Keith Marshall was hurt, Ramsey sucked worse than Bauta, Bauta couldn’t even start for Bobo at CSU. Not fair to use unnamed player/coaches quotes. Should use professional coach critics”


And admitted Mark Richt could not win the big games after 2007 with Mike Bobo as Offensive Coordinator.


Failed to point-out the dozen losses to unranked teams after 2007 until he was FIRED.


Failed to point-out that 63 of his last 146 signed scholarship recruits were GONE for various reasons but not on the team for Kirby.


Failed to point-out that he only won 53 % of the games against teams who played as one of the 80 bowl teams the year he played them after 2007 three games over .500


Mark Richt’s staffs were horrible and with his “let them do whatever they want attitude” the players and his staff made sure that Mark Richt was seen as running a program which was OUT OF CONTROL.


Daily all we get are post after post about how Mark Richt was treated unfairly and was the best coach ever when Kirby has a higher win percentage and a better average recruiting class.


I really frankly do NOT give a shit what you think about how I hate Mark Richt and what he did to our program from 2008 until 2015 when finally folks read my blog and fired the dumbass.


I was right and proven right.




Here stick THIS up your God damn novice assholes 3 years after I was proven correct that Mark Richt had to be FIRED with reason that you still write pieces MAKING EXCUSES FOR HIM.


There is NO EXCUSE for what he did to my alma mater for his last entire 8 years here.


FU and F him.


And CB the writer of RiverbendRunDown blog is full of shit to TRY to make EXCUSES for 2015 for Mark Richt 3 years later.


I could care if you can be bothered to read THAT or not either.


We’ve MOVED-ON.  The Mark Richt Apologists who say they are Miami of Florida fans now can kiss my ass.




Y’all will never one-line Mark Richt’s career here at UGA or after other than that he was good 2001 to 2007 and then gave-up on football to be a God Damn preacher man.  Stephen Hawking said that God did NOT create the universe and there is no afterlife.  I am not here to live up to your expectations.  I am here to give hell to dumbasses.  I graduated in the top 5 % of my graduating class at UGA honored at Foy Fine Arts for such.  Every word of what I have said for the last 11 years has become total vindication of my facts as presented on these blogs about Mark Richt.  So you can STICK it up your ASS !
