King Carl vs. A.J. "Lord of no Rings"Smith....$.99 PPV

Just an interesting point of topic....

8. A.J. Smith, general manager of the San Diego Chargers, is starting to remind me of former Kansas City Chiefs general manager Carl Peterson, and that's not a good thing.

In the 1990s, Peterson developed a solid reputation while the Chiefs won a bunch of regular-season games but few postseason contests.Peterson acquired Marcus Allen and Joe Montana and drafted Derrick Thomas, Tony Gonzalez and Dale Carter.

Eventually, Peterson's ego ruined his relationship with Neil Smith, Jared Allen, John Tait and several other key players. Peterson never won a Super Bowl. He never won a playoff game after 1993.

A.J. Smith carries himself like he's Bill Polian, the best GM in football. Smith has scrapped publicly with LaDainian Tomlinson, Donnie Edwards and now Vincent Jackson. Have the Chargers won a Super Bowl during Smith's tenure? Maybe I missed that.

I don't know who is right in the Smith-Jackson standoff. Smith probably is. I'm just tired of Smith's name being in the paper. Other GMs seem to handle their business with less publicity.

Pretty interesting take from Whitlock on the comparison of the two. I still don't understand NOT taking a 2nd and a possible late round pick for Jackson to Minnesota. I mean, Jackson will be able to go whereever he wants at the end of the season and the Chargers will get zip,nada,nothing then. Well, I guess the Chargers fans might see what we went through for 20 years with The King all too soon. We were contenders for a few of those years and never lived up to the hype (see the correlation). Here's 20 years to the Chargers ;)
