    The draft is a crapshoot? Then why do we need the EGO that is AJ? Not many other GM's in the league desire the limelight as much that have accomplished as little. AJ Smith is a household name and it isnt because of what he did in the 05' draft. You know.. the last time he showed his guru on draft day.

    We were in a position largely due to the players drafted in 05' or previous. If we had to make a run with 06' and on we wouldnt be talking about playoffs at all.

    The Lions, Browns and Rams never had LT, Gates, Sproles, VJ and PR on the same team for a number of years. When the Rams did have talent they went all the way.

    Our depth was exposed when we played in the playoffs.

    Our depth caused Kaeding to miss three field goals? Our depth caused Rivers and Gates to have a mix up that resulted in a pick? Our depth caused a fluke *** pass to bounce off of Jackson's foot and land in Revis' lap, while he was lying on the ground for another pick? Our depth caused Cromartie to play like a kitty?

    The Jets had just as many miscues.

    When the game was on the line and it was their best vs. our best, our patchwork DL didnt get it done. They didnt push back, they didnt dominate. They got stood up and the result was a p$$y CB going ones against a RB with a head full of steam.

    A team that wasnt supposed to beat us in our house muscled up on our depth and advanced. Our depth was exposed.

    Really? You really need specifics? haha. Ok.

    Personal beat writer on hand to fluff his tommy bahamas in the press whenever he feels like going public.

    Has put himself before the fans by taking the state of the Chargers Address away from them. He didnt want to answer specifics about his questionable moves the past 3 years and the pathetic letdown that was last years playoff game.

    Says that he needs to do a better job evaluating talent but then goes on to keep guys like Buster (I havent done chit as a 1st round pic) Davis on the roster.

    Let his ego ruin the relationship between Marty and the Chargers over a whole season. Wouldnt even talk to Marty. Fired him for playoff losses but then backed up his guy Norv with a contract extension. Norv hasnt made this team any better and the pro bowl caliber team he inherited isnt even here anymore. But AJ selected him and much like Buster Davis he will ride this one out until it is painfully obvious it didnt work.

    This is just off the top. I'm busy and really dont want to argue these points to the depth we could so I'll start with these and you can dispute them all you want. ;)

    #1. All GMs have beatwriters waiting for a quote. AJ isn't any different in that regard 'cept he maybe doesn't talk as much to the press, and when he does, it's very matter of fact.
    #2. GM > fans when it comes to matter of the team, you whine about him talking to the press in 1 sentence, then cry because he doesn't the next. Make up your mind dude.
    #3. You don't get rid of guys before they have a chance to get on the field regularly and either show or suck. We've had Davis for 3 full season and he's been injured alot during that time, it took VJ 4 to prove he was something more than a just china doll who couldn't catch with his hands. Davis has made some good plays, he just can't stay healthy. Besides, what are we gonna do, cut/trade him? Who would trade for him? Keep him for depth, you never know.
    #4. Marty is a douche.

    AJ > you

    stfu n00b and watch the master work this weekend

    you need to repent heathen

    I just want to point out that Philip Rivers sat on the bench for 2 years when we had Brees. You don't think it's a good idea for these guys to learn how the NFL works before getting tossed into the fire? Vincent Jackson is another example. He sat for a few years and look at him now. Sure we have needs, which team doesn't, but we have a lot of talent and it takes time to evaluate draft picks. Buster has looked decent when he's played, he just has the unfortunate luck of being behind our other awesome receivers. When Buster starts playing at a high level are you going to admit you were wrong and that it's better to learn to adapt instead of just starting from day 1 all the time?

    PS: The draft is a crapshoot as others have said, you can't expect every draft pick to be a gem.

    PPS: I'm not even going to address the inanity of this post or the rest of your posts.

    The Chargers are the only team in the NFL that have a beat writer who prints things from the team's GM?

    How does his decision to discontinue a State of the Chargers press conference bolster your argument that he seeks the spotlight?

    What does this have to do with A.J. Smith seeking the spotlight?

    What does this have to do with A.J. Smith seeking the spotlight?

    You have not demonstrated through these examples that A.J. seeks the spotlight, which is what you claimed.

    Through your various posts you strike me as Likes To Piss and Moan Guy.

    Wow, the maturity on these boards is amazing.

    if you guys just want people to circle jerk you and tell you how right you are why even post on a public message board.

    Beating your chest as if you have anything to do with the Chargers. Your opinion is out your *** as is mine.

    This message board is no different than the CMB and SOSD. I suspect some of the same people as the excuses and tired backup of AJ is suspiciously typical.

    Sorry, I came to have an opinion. Not be "Coached" as to what to say.

    Thanks for the debate.

    dood, you're being coached? better grow some thicker skin if you want to bring a strong opinion and not get beat up over it.

    Better to stand your ground than to come back with the above weak assed argument.
