    Interesting for those that thought (wrongly) that AJ fired Marty

    A year ago, Spanos had to make a major decision about the direction of the team. Marty Schottenheimer was the head coach, Smith was the general manager, and the two weren't getting along very well. Spanos initially decided to give Schottenheimer a one-year extension but decided to fire him after several top assistant coaches were allowed to leave. Schottenheimer was under a lot of heat for not winning a playoff game in San Diego.



    For all the AJ haters who thought AJ was behind the firing :tounge:

    :lol:

    How does Matt Millen make more than AJ and 31 other general managers?

    Great move. There are about 29 other teams disappointed in this news.

    Matt Millen makes the second most salary as a GM?!!!!

    Talk about getting the least for your money.

    Wow. No wonder the Lions are always doormats..... it starts at the top. How do you even justify that?

    Glad to hear we have AJ for the next 5 years.

    AJ signs for the 3rd best GM contract and has the 3rd best record in the last 4 years.

    If anyone thinks his ego is out of line, then it would have shown in his paycheck and negotiations. Apparently, it did not and GOD has shown he is a fair man.

    AJ rocks.

    Great move my Dean and the Chargers. I've been a huge AJ fan since he pulled off the Sheli trade and with all the great acquisitions and pickups this guy has made. He definately deserves it.

    Now let's get that 1st win for him this Sunday!!!!!:abq2:

    WE've come so far since A.j. and big john came on board. Now were looking very strong for the next couple of years. I've always thought it a minor miracle that big johns best friend was A.j.. And that when big john passed on that Spanos hired A.j. to fill in possibly temporarily. And its been one of the best things to happen with the chargers for quite a while.

    Hey brainiac.

    Only Spanos can hire or fire somebody and everybody knows that.
    ie: If AJ decides that a certain individual should not be with the team any longer, Spanos delivers the pink slip. THAT IS WANT A GM DOES!!! THAT'S HIS JOB!!!

    If somebody says "AJ fired somebody," it's just shorter than saying "Aj decided and Sponos delivered."



    On the other hand... I'M GLAD ABOUT THIS SIGNING!!!!:bolt:
    With that said... if AJ's current experiment does not work out, I expect a change! :yes:

    Another reason to stay clear of that place, but I had to go look. Seems Old Fool is in true form as well as a few other educationally deficient posters.

    "Big John" was NOT a good GM for us. He left a huge mess behind, due to terrible free agent signings and an uneven draft record.

    AJ deserves major props for acting decisively to undue the damage wrought by John Butler, and I am very pleased that AJ will be our GM for many years to come.
