Smith is deified by some, and demonized by others but as far as I am concerned, AJ Smith is one of the best evaluators of talent in the NFL and should be considered one of the best GMs in all of sports. Indeed, I was worried that at some point the Chargers might lose Smith from either his continued success or from a dramatic failure. But on the first day of the year 2008, the San Diego Chargers' President Dean Spanos has announced that AJ has accepted a contract extension that will keep him here through the 2014 season.
I think this is a great decision and is going to help ensure that the Chargers will remain competitive for many years. There are bound to be some touchy situations down the road under the direction of AJ Smith, and even as a fan of his work I am sure there are going to be decisions that I will question, but the fact of the matter is that since 2004 only the Patriots and Colts have complied better regular season records than the Chargers' 46-18 and a big reason for that has been AJ Smith.
