    Granted, starter Drew Brees and first-round backup Philip Rivers account for approximately 18 percent of the team's salary cap, but it could prove to be the best damn insurance policy in the NFL.

    (Interestingly, by comparison, the Chargers' 10 offensive linemen account for only 8.43 percent of their $85 million salary cap.)

    Even after a playoff season, the Chargers couldn't trade away Brees even if they wanted to. And unwilling to do a long-term contract with him, they opted to pay Brees the franchise salary of $8.7 million this year. Smith is very willing to play out this season and then deal with the consequences.</blockquote>
