    Gawd gets his due

    Sportsline NFL - Clark jUdge

    San Diego Chargers: I don't care if you love A.J. Smith or hate him. You can't help but admire how the general manager keeps San Diego on its feet. Smith entered March wondering how on earth he could compete with Seattle for guard Kris Dielman when the truth was he couldn't. The Seahawks would offer more money. But Dielman pulled the upset, staying in San Diego with a six-year, $39 million deal that is nothing but good news for new coach Norv Turner.

    With Dielman re-signed, Turner has his offensive line intact ... now and for the foreseeable future. All five of San Diego's starters are signed through the next two seasons, including three -- Dielman, center Nick Hardwick and right tackle Shane Olivea -- who are locked down through the next five. You won't find many clubs with that sort of continuity up front, but then you don't find many teams that run through a season with only two losses -- and both of them on last-minute scores. San Diego is deeper than almost everyone in talent, and the Dielman re-signing is a reason: Smith finds a way to keep key players from moving on.

    Kevin McHale #1? The guy sucks and hasn't gotten any help for Kevin Garnett.

    They look at the GM's from a business standpoint and compare them to how the previous GM did before him. So it doesn't really show who's the best GM as in finding players, building teams etc.
