A.J. Smith has said he feels the Chargers now have a playoff-caliber team.

In New York, it was Coach Rex Ryan, not GM Mike Tannenbaum, who had positive comments about the Jets' prospects.

Hope springs eternal on both coasts
Aj smith didn't dip into FA more this year any more than any other year......

They have no 3rd (could turn into 2nd) next year.

Last year they had 3 selections.


This habit, over time, will sink that team imvho. You can not sustain long term success without a constant influx of young talent, and the Jets are not doing that. They are giving up draft picks to rent players. If they win it all, great gamble. But it IS a gamble.
Solid post

I didn't want to merge obviously with the "hot mess" thread, but had to look this old guy up.

Good times.

It appears it was, in fact, accurate.

This thread contrasted general managers Mike Tannenbaum of the Jets and A.J. Smith of the Chargers.

They shared a similarity. Both teams have been backsliding in recent years.

As of today, neither A. J. Smith nor Mike Tannenbaum has kept his job.

It will be interesting to see if they move on to other NFL teams.

Because the Chargers offensive line lacked depth, A.J. Smith signed veteran offensive linemen (instead of stocking the line via draft choices in rounds 1-2).

In the 2009 opener against the Raiders, Marcus McNeil was injured but could not be taken out of the lineup because there were no more offensive linemen available. The Chargers scrambled to find offensive linemen, signing Jon Runyan to play tackle, Eric Ghiaciuc to play center, and center-guard Dennis Norman.

When there was a contract dispute with left tackle Marcus McNeill, the Chargers signed Tra Thomas, who'd been released by the Jaguars.

In 2011, the Chargers didn't sign left tackle Jared Gaither when he was available before training camp. The Chiefs signed him but the Chargers were able to sign him up for a successful five-game run late in the season. His performance led the A.J. Smith offering him a contract for 2012.
