Default My Rant

Ok, since the people at most Chargers boards seem to think that Aj Smith is a genious and all, I can't really get an honest opinion, so maybe I can get it from Steeler fans. Here's what I posted at a Chargers board:

Quote:
Is it just me, or is Aj always looking WAY to far into the future. With the way he handles things, it doesn't really look like the Chargers will ever be fully re-built SB caliber team before Tomlinson retires. Last year we were SO close. So what does Aj do? Refuses to sign one of the biggest peices of the puzzle, Brees. And I really doubt he'll sign a veteren like we need, instead opting to get a ****ing young player that doesn't know what the hell he's doing. Whenver he does get a young player, right when they are FINALLY developed he RELEASES THEM. I know some people call him a genious when it comes to being an owner, but i'm sick of it. GOD DAMNIT AJ

I think we need Marty to stand in his face for a half hour yelling "ONE SEASON AT A TIME, ONE SEASON AT A TIME, ONE SEASON AT A TIME, ONE SEASON AT A TIME..."
Please, tell me i'm not crazy.

You don't sound crazy to me but then again I don't know the history of the Chargers. I do know that this past season they came out on fire but then kinda fizzled out towards the end of the season and I wondered what happened. So......what did happen? I heard on this board that Miami is looking into Brees. Where is he from and how well does he play?

Actually, we started out slow, caught fire. Got extinguised.

And as far as Brees: He doesn't have a cannon by any means, but his accuracy and great leadership make it a much better QB than one that just bombs it ever play. I'd rather have him than someone with a long throw and no accuary. [sarcasim]I can see why Aj wouldn't want to resign him...[/sarcasim]

i dont think youre crazy. hes had 1 12 and 4 season thats it. i thought he made a great deal to land lt and d. brees by giving up m. vick. even if vick does finally live up to the accolades i still think its a better deal for the chargers. all that he did that was great with that deal was undone by drafting rivers.

last season (im taking a guess here) they had about 17 million tied up in 2 qb's and he wanted to be a cheapskate with a. gates. i could understand if their backs were against the cap but that wasnt the case. letting gates be suspended against dallas cost them revenues of an extra playoff game. iven more if they wouldve had a game at home.

personally i dont think ive ever heard a.j. referred to as a genius. infact i dont really recall dan rooney being called a genius on theis board (although he certainly is)

I'm pretty sure it was 15 mill, but i'm not sure. And I love Aj's solution to it: Drop the proven veteren, go with the unproven potential flop and get nothing out of it. Awesome.

Oh, he's called a genious on SD Boards. It's like Tom Brady on NE boards, it's rediculous.

it took 3 years for brees to come around. what if it takes rivers that long? will they get rid of him after 2? if not they have and will be paying a #1 pick millions to sit around/ struggle with on the job training for 5 years.

hopefully he works out for you all. as a 3rd year player i dont think he deserves too much of a learning curve if the same wasnt extended to brees.

mike tyson has won heavyweight boxing titles. i guess hes a genius too

but yeah, really retarded. sucky thing is im not sure the chargers could even get a top 15 pick in a trade for rivers. they would have to swallow some pride to get rid of him. maybe a.j. is more concerned with this "genius" rep he has "earned" from the fans.
