A.J. MOCKS L.T.

Things are gradually escalating in San Diego.  And if we had any popcorn left after watching that slo-mo train wreck in Dallas, which is still unfolding nearly a month after 44-6, we’d have it ready.
On Wednesday, Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson posted the following message on his personal web site:  “I have been getting a lot of messages on my site regarding me leaving San Diego.  I feel that I need to make it very clear that I have no intentions of leaving San Diego.  San Diego is where my career started and where I’d like it to end.  I have nothing but love and the upmost [sic] respect for this team, the players, and the Spanos Family.  Me being traded is completely out of my hands.  I have ABSOLUTELY no control in that decision making.  All I can do is wait and see how it all plays out.  As for now, I am a Charger and will be until I am told otherwise.”
Informed of the statement from L.T., Chargers G.M. A.J. Smith didn’t take the typical, “We respect LaDainian and everything he’s done for the organization” approach.
Instead, Smith mocked Tomlinson.
“My first reaction was we both have similar feelings,” Smith said, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.  “I have no intentions of leaving San Diego.  San Diego is where my GM career started and where I’d like it to end.  I also have nothing but love and the utmost respect for this team, the players and the Spanos family.  I have absolutely no control over how long I will be with the Chargers.”
Though on one hand we love it, on the other hand we suspect that one or more folks named Spanos are a tad uncomfortable with the remarks, which clearly were aimed at getting under L.T.’s skin. 
Smith also addressed the broader question of what will happen with Tomlinson in 2009.  “My recommendation to Dean Spanos will be what’s in the best interest of the team – both short and long term.  That’s my job.  That’s what Dean hired me to do.”
L.T.?  The ball is back in your court.
But first give us about 30 minutes to buy a new box of Orville Redenbacher.

  1. If L.T. is looking for a divorce with the Chargers he should call Larry King. He knows a thing or two or seven about those.

  2. axe hair product…I nearly blew my diet coke through my nose as I read that one…give him the pepsi fan pack.

  3. A.J. Smith should be fired immediately. He appears to be a first class jerk, not only in private but in public.

  4. A.J.,
    It is a good idea to release the face of your franchise when his best days are behind him and has nothing left in the tank.
    Sincerely,
    Kurt Warner

  5. is it just me or have the GMs in the NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE developed some of the strangest egos of late. this moron makes ted thompson of green bay look classy.
    I’m not one of those fools who thinks LT is the classiest dude in the world. I mean when you stomp around like a petulant child when the Patriots beat you down, even though your own linebacker mocks every single team in the league with his ridiculous sack dance, how classy can you be? but he sure as hell doesn’t deserve some suit mocking him either. the guy gave his life to that team which was crap before him. he’ll probably die 10 years earlier because of all the beatings he has taken, and the 20 years prior to that will absolutely suck because he won’t even be able to get out of bed without 10 pain pills.
    stay classy asshole!

  6. As a Bengals fan, I would love almost any GM. But, this guy seems like a prick.
    Now they are guaranteed issues between now and whenever LT’s career ends. It could also piss off the people in the locker room who are loyal to LT.

  7. So….maybe I’m missing something here.
    In what way is Smith mocking LT???
    He simply states that he wants to stay too, but he has no more control over that than Tomlinson does. A pretty benign statement if you ask me.

  8. I actually think AJ is making fun of the media who keeps asking the same question over and over. LT gave a standard answer and AJ gave the standard answer. This is a non-story until something actually happens.

  9. A.J. Smith is such a freaking douschebag….this from a guy that fired a head coach that went 14-2 for him?

  10. A.J. Smith is an arrogant little yuppie, and him driving out Marty Schottenheimer was a big mistake. I honestly believe that Schottenheimer would have won a super bowl with this group. I think that he could have gotten much more out of this roster than what Norv Turner has. Norv is a great coordinator, but I don’t think he had the personality to make 53 grown men buy into his philosophy. Until they can get a GM that isn’t a dick, and a HC that doesn’t like people, they won’t get over the hump.

  11. Nothing attracts quality free agents like treating Hall of Famers like trash – first Marty, now LDT. Michael Turner must love life right now.

  12. Way to fan the flames there, A.J.
    Why are so many GMs today turning into such idiots? Can’t any of these guys keep business in house? I know players like to air out their grievances, but you’d think a guy at the upper management level would be smart enough to not say things publicly that only make thing worse.

  13. A.J. sounds like the fellow in “Office Space” who shouts, “I HAVE PEOPLE SKILLS!” after being fired.

  14. Is there really any point to this? Like it or not, Tomlinson is gone. He’s not going to receive $6+ million as a running back who turns 30 this off-season.

  15. In unrelated news, LT also posted on his website, that he is a very classy individual, he is a tremendous running back, might be the greatest player to ever step on a football field, and when he retires, he is going to displace God and take on a new challenge

  16. Wow. AJ is so stupid.
    Way to win over a fan base (that has already been sketchy on the team) by mocking the teams most beloved player in franchise history.
    AJ needs to realize….in SD there are a lot more LT fans than AJ fans. It is your job to do whats best for the team. But I can’t imagine ridiculing the face of the franchise for the past 8 years as “best” for the team.
    Try to show some class and keep it behind closed doors like LT said. If you let him go, do it with dignity and stop acting like you are simply replacing a bus boy at a restaurant.

  17. So…Yoo-hoo, Lucky Charms, and now Orville Redenbacher? Do you just put there name in stuff and then send them a bill or what?

  18. “My recommendation to Dean Spanos will be what’s in the best interest of the team – both short and long term. That’s my job. That’s what Dean hired me to do.”
    Let’s review: Let the Offensive Player of the Year leave; the runner up to the AP MVP leave; fired a 14 win coach; won’t fire an 8 win coach; allowed his star linebacker to go an entire offseason without surgery only to have it week one; tried to call Antonio Gate’s bluff and failed…..Great Job there AJ

  19. If I were one of the aforementioned Spanos’ that everyone seems to have respect for…I would fire AJ Smith’s ass on principle alone. Yeah, go ahead and mock one of the greatest running backs of our time. Mock one of the classiest guys in a league with increasingly classless players. Nice work Smith. You win a Pepsi!

  20. Was AJ sitting at his desk with a visor on pouting? Taco Bill?
    Also,
    Why are half the comments on this site about spelling and grammar errors? If someone invented a cure for cancer, would you critique the spelling? Get a life.

  21. “And if we had any popcorn left after watching that slo-mo train wreck in Dallas, which is still unfolding nearly a month after 44-6, we’d have it ready.”
    But…but…but…we’ve won 5 Super Bowls!!

  22. Eli Manning had this to say about the comments made by AJ Smith and L.T. “I have no intentions of ever playing for San Diego. San Diego is where my career almost started and is certainly not where it will end. I have zero love and respect for the team, the players or the Spanos family. I was able to completely control, well maybe with a little help from Dad, how long my stay in San Diego was”

  23. A.J. thinks he is the football God in SD.
    Look at how he treated Drew Brees, Marty S., Turner, and now LDT. No matter what he does LDT will count towards this years Salary Cap. So cut LDT and let him go to another team, like the Pats, Broncos, Chiefs (if their GM ever does something), or any other AFC team. Then watch LDT comeback to haunt A.J. Smith.
    Yes LDT appears to be declining – YET 1,100 yards is still pretty good.
    Treat LDT with respect and behind closed doors.

  24. Look just because a cynical mind interprets the remark as mocking doesn’t make it so.
    I read the quote on a local San Diego paper’s site before I saw it here and thought it was pretty benign. He’s just saying everyone is in the same boat. That doesn’t really sound mocking to me. These are not exactly high school or even college kids here. AJ has also freely acknowledged that “fan relations” or whatever you want to call it are a clear weakness of his. However, that’s not his job. His job is to make the best decisions for the Chargers future. To me he seems to do better at that than most GMs.

    ***
    What you are missing, is a clue.
    He repeated Tomlinson’s statement almost word for word – with the exception of using utmost instead of upmost.

  26. It’s an interesting back and forth – there’s an article from ESPN (uhoh)that spoke of AJ telling LT after Marty got hosed that LT had to “trust the plan”. Now here’s the deal: The GM is looking to protect his gig and get the most value from the player. The player signs contracts and most of these contracts are heavily loaded with performance incentives. The player has to hope that the conditions under which he signed his contract remain the same or improve. In LT’s case, depth was not added to the O-line and the team went through a succession of line coaches. When Hudson Houck left SD, that O-line was performing at an incredible level. The next detrimental move was the cost cutting manuever of letting Lorenzo Neal go. There’s three pretty big factors that have incredible impact on LT’s ability to perform under the contract he signed; the constant flux over the last four years of the OLine coaching, the lack of depth at O line and the release of Lorenzo Neal.
    It was a mistake for LT to “trust the plan”. Depending on who you root for, AJ Smith brilliantly exhausted an hall of fame back, got more than the team’s money’s worth by ditching LT in these waning contract years.
    It’s devious and shrewd. If you like devious and shrewd, you like AJ. If you like the loyalty and work ethic LT showed through the lean years, you don’t care of AJ.

  27. What a jackass AJ is, he obviously used the word utmost on purpose to piss off LT. What an ego this turd has! The fact that he just let Brees walk a few years ago shows how bad he is at his job.
    Also saying that LT is done is a bit premature. The fact that he got injured and missed the last 2 playoffs to me does not reflect on his apparent lack of heart. He’s a running back, his legs are his game. He had leg issues, not a shoulder, rib etc…not that i love the guy but give him a break, he’s the best rb we’ve had in the league in years.

  28. AllSeeingEye – “His job is to make the best decisions for the Chargers future. To me he seems to do better at that than most GMs.”
    You are kidding, right?
    2006 = 14-2
    2007 = 11-5
    2008 = 8-8
    What future is reflected in these records?

  29. “when you stomp around like a petulant child when the Patriots beat you down, even though your own linebacker mocks every single team in the league with his ridiculous sack dance, how classy can you be?”
    Especially in a year that the Pats had no players arrested or suspended by the league while the Chargers had 8 players arrested for everything from DUI to shipping purple drank street drug components to Texas and Merriman suspended for steroids. Yeah, the Chargers were a REALLY REAALLY classy bunch of guys that year.

  30. hey Jlyng. The guy who figures out a cure for cancer is going to know how to spell. Proper grammar and spelling are signs of intelligence. Like it or not, those are the facts.
    Its ok, the world needs ditch diggers too my friend.

  31. AJ Smith and LT have a lot in common. When the chips are down, they both bow out. LT fakes injuries, and AJ Smith lets all-pro players walk.

  32. This is exactly why Manning didn’t want to play in that organization. A.J. freakin’ Smith. Are you proud of yourself big guy? Way to mock one the NFL’s good guys. Force out a 14-2 coach, dump Brees, let Turner go for nothing and now this. What a guy..

  33. Yeah firing Schottenheimer was a horrible move…that guy has been to so many Super Bowls. A man who 3 times has had the NFL’s best record and couldn’t get even one of those teams to a Super Bowl.
    A.J. is a businessman and the NFL is a business. Many fans are too ignorant to see the business side of things and only “think” with their emotions. The guy had 11 pro bowlers last year and since he was named GM in 2003, the Chargers have been to the playoffs 4 out of 5 years after a 9 year absence.
    LT should be kept around only if he will reduce his cap number. Look at the numbers for RB’s over 30…they aren’t reassuring for a guy who has had serious injuries the last 2 seasons.

  34. I love to see the pre-divorce altercations. I’m actually surprised that this hasn’t started earlier between the Chargers and LT.
    Lets look at the Chargers illustrious history in regards to their aging markee players since AJ Smith was appointed to the front office. The same tiptoeing whent on with these players.
    – Rodney Harrison – released 2003
    – Junior Seau – traded 2003
    – Flutie + Fisk released 2005
    Drew Brees another mess but thats another angle.
    Since AJ Smith has been involved in decision making the high earner injury prone superstars have been either traded or released. Why would LT be different? The NFL is about business. Do I think that you have what it takes to take my team forward or can I find someone else that can offer me a better chance of winning.
    LT has a small portion of “juice” left but is he the long term solution? Injuries, capsize, available free agents and draft projects go into the picture here.
    IMHO to many of the boxes on the negative side can be ticked on LT nowadays and he will not be back with the Chargers. He will be either traded or released before training camp starts. Look for the Chargers to draft a promising RB that they can take a look at during minicamps, sign a free agent RB that will be availabe as a security blanket (Morris/Jones) from Seattle and LT will be playing in a different uniform.
    That has been the Chargers mantra the last 5 years. Why would you change a successful concept?

  35. Wow, what a dick. AJ Smith may be a decent evaluator of talent, but hes apparently a real scumbag of a human being.

  36. A.J. Smith is a jerk – you should have seen what he did back in Buffalo in the day… 4 Superbowls, and he showed everyone of those guys the door… He’s a classless guy – but he has been successful, not sure what to make of that.

  37. A.J. Smith is a schmuck that has made his reputation of the good things that the late John Butler was able to do before he died. LT deserves to be treated better than this.

  38. I wonder how this thing will pan out. I mean will AJ Smith have a heart attack before he has to make a decision about LDT? If LDT gets cut does he put his helmet with the visor on full-time?
    Also should we really be surprised that AJ Smith is a greasy d-bag? He does look like Roy from “Wings”…

  39. LT should ask for a release, then go to the Raiders or Broncos and routinely jam the Bolts for 200 yards and 3 scores. Then AJ can resign his new ‘franchise’ Sproles who will get 5-6 touches a game. If you are more ready to sign that mouthy whiny bitch Rivers than LT, well, you have a Masters Degree in Suckitude!!

  40. “Look just because a cynical mind interprets the remark as mocking doesn’t make it so.”
    There’s no other way for a functioning mind to interpret it.

    _____________________________________________
    hahahahhahaah it must have taken you 20 trips to dictionary.com to be able to put that sentence together if you think spelling and grammar are not important.

  42. Mbehavin2,
    Records aren’t everything. A couple of years ago the Chargers rode fantasitc offensive line play and a soft schedule to a 14-2 record and promptly got punted out of the playoffs.
    And this year the 8-8 Chargers > 12-4 Colts. That’s really all you need to know about the potential “future” of the Colts. Give them a year without injuries to their offensive line, best defensive player, and best offensive playmakers in Gates and LT and then pass judgement.

  43. LT should be traded if possible. Or cut. LT was something else but he has jumped the shark.
    AJ should have kept his mouth shut, however. Just let it go. Everyone knows his options, and altho these guys probly traded unpleasantriesd in private… stfu and general manage. There was NO need to respond.
    mocking the media – doubtful. mocking LT – surely.

    Wow! LT invented the cure for cancer? Who woulda thunk…?

  45. Typical Florio, trying to make a story out of nothing. If it took this for you to realize that Smith was a jackass, then you haven’t been paying attention. Smith will run him out ouf town and the Chargers will suck just like they did this year. Remember the team went 8-8. I know they made the playoffs, but c’mon.

  46. I was going to post something and then read this post. Sums up my thoughts exactly:
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  47. It would appear that A.J. Smith has read the book, “How to Shit on the Face of Your Franchise and Not Lose Your Job”, by Ted Thompson.

  48. Only thing better wouldve been AJ sitting at the podium wearing a Chargers helmet with a black out visor. Tears rolling off his chin would make it Epic.

  49. Dear AJ,
    First you fire your 14-2 coach over a pissing match, now you mock the best player your team has seen in years. Doesn’t make me look so bad telling a fan to go root for Buffalo.
    Stay classy!
    Phil Savage

  50. I am a Bolts fan and I hope LT goes to Denver or the Pats and when
    they play SD LT runs the ball down their throat and after each touchdown LT scores he points to were AJ sits and says that was for you. I really hate AJ.

  51. It’s a time-honored tradition:
    Coaches Coach…
    Player’s Play…
    and G.M.’s… piss-off (or on) their players…?
    But,what no-one’s talking about is, could there be something more sinister behind “A.J.’s” comments? The way I see it, A.J.’s grown tired of being upstaged by L.T…
    A.J.’s a man who took that step… No?! ever bigger than that… made that leap… to using “Initials” in place if his given name… Think about it… FDR?!… JFK?!… A.J. changed his place in history by changing the way people address him from a name… to initials… then along comes this snot-nosed punk… trying to upstage him with his this “L.T.” business…
    I think that If L.T. went back to just calling himself LaDanian… this whole thing woud blow-over…
    But, this is just one Chargers fan’s perspective…
    C.J. in La Costa

  52. AllSeeingEye – Sorry dude. The records reflect the teams each season.
    As Don Meredith used to say “If ifs and buts were candy and nuts what a merry world it would be.”
    To follow with just one example of the above. If none of 7 Bronco RBs had gone on IR do you really think the Chargers would have even sniffed the playoffs after the 2008 season? Like I just said there are many of those for each team each year.
    The fact remains the Chargers record has gone down by 3 wins each year the last 3 seasons. They (AJ) let Lorenzo Neal go, Michael Turner, and Drew Brees all walk with virtually no compensation. If they play better in 2009 fine. Yet to continue to loose people via AJ is not a good trend.
    Your team still ended up 8-8 which is middle of the road.

  53. Robbbov… I’m not sure if you were being sarcastic or not, but do you really call that a “successful formula?” As much as it pains me to say it, was letting Harrison and Seau go really such a bright idea? They both seemed to have quite a bit of gas left in the tank after being let go…..

  54. Mbehavin2,
    Let’s look at the facts here, with the reality that there is a salary cap in place and only so much money to go around.
    Why would you keep Michael Turner when you have one of the best backs ever coming off of leading the league in rushing? There were no signs that LT was slowing down at that point. And the fact is that LT was just a better RB than Turner. 50 yards and a playoff loss. That is what Turner gave the Falcons. You forget that Turner also didn’t get the job done against the Patriots for the Chargers last year either.
    Lorenzo Neal just didn’t fit the mold of what Norv wants out of a fullback. That was Norv’s call not AJ’s.
    And behind Drew Brees, they had some guy named Philip Rivers who’s 3 years younger, 3 inches taller and has a stronger arm. I forget, how many playoff berths has Brees led the Saints to in the last two years? Rivers led the league in passer rating this year without a superstar wide receiver and with Antonio Gates hobbled all year. Although it’s very close I’ll take Rivers over Brees, thank you.
    We’ll see what the record ends up being next year. I like the direction of the team, assuming they END up treating LT with SOME modicum of respect.

  55. Ya know… it sounded to me like empathy, not mockery. When I read Acee’s article, it came across to me as if A.J. was just saying he understands L.T.’s position because most of what L.T. said applies to him too.

  56. If Jerry Jones had half the stones that A.J. Smith does in not letting the players run the “team” then the Cowboys would not be a laughingstock.
    Say what you will about A.J. (and I agree that his statement was a bit crass), but he leaves no doubt that he will put what’s best for the team above pampering any player.
    That’s a good message to send, IMO.

  57. AJ is the guy who in 2003 traded down from 14th pick to select Sammie Davis in the bottom of the first round, and missed Troy Palumalu who went at 15 (your are welcome Stiller fan), and in taking Davis, left Nmamdi Asomonghu for the Raiders to take with the next pick. They also picked up Terrance Kiel and Drayton Florence (i know, who?) and left Asante Samuel on the board for both of them. He was part of the regime that let Rodney Harrison and Junior Seau leave too soon. He picked Merriman, true, but it was not genius, rather because the Cowboys picked Demarcus Ware, and Derrick Johnson was also available, that pick would have worked out no matter. Picked up Luis Castillo the same year, left Justin Tuck….just to name a few…. So, he is no genius, his has failed in significant ways in his drafting, and now he is once again going to make a bad decision that hurts the franchise. At the end of the day, the bad choices made by AJ Smith to date are the reason there are troubles….Brees, Shottenheimer, Houck, Welker, the list goes on of missing persons deemed unnecessary by the Genius AJ. He should be the one to go.

  58. aj smith is indeed an a-hole, but he has done a good job in san diego. those of you who bash him and ted thompson should realize that they have both set their organizations up to be competitive both now and in the future (green bay is loaded with young talent and will bounce back from this season).
    to those sucking on ladanian’s nutsack…stop. please stop. the guy isnt one of the good guys of the league. while he certainly isnt as bad as many of the criminals he calls teamates, he has proven to be somewhat petulant and distant from his teamates when things dont go his way (ie refusing to sit next to rivers after an interception), qualities unfitting of the “face of the franchise”. also, the history of running backs past 30 speaks for itself. tomlinsin just MIGHT have 2 decent years left, and after that he is likely to severely decline. it makes football sense to let him go, get compensation, and add more young talent.

  59. oh and sayhello, you’re a retard if you don’t remember how AJ and Marty both decided welker was to be PS’d till after week 1, and how wes decided that wasn’t good enough for him so he jumped to the fish.
    you’re also retarded if you don’t know sammie was the dying butler’s draft board, it’s well chronicled moron
    as for the other picks, every GM in the world is a retard then because they’ve all passed on great talent, in every round
    (terrel davis, tom brady) to name a few

  60. There was an article in the San Diego Tribune about how after John Butler died (The G.M. that picked LT and Drew Brees by giving up on Mike Vick, and was AJ’s boss) and AJ was promoted the first thing he did was put his nose into LT’s ass and begin to kiss it all over the place. His thinking was as long as he was in good with the team’s superstar he’d have a job. Now he’s a tough guy???? Come on AJ put that nose back in that ass….

  61. Facts:
    AJ didnt fire Marty. Dean Spanos did because Marty wanted to bring in his kid as a asst coach.
    AJ gets paid to make very hard decisions.
    AJ let Brees go because the Chargers would not guarantee big $$ to Brees. The Saints were the only club who would.
    Marty wanted to get fired.
    AJ knows what he is doing, and will continue to do what he thinks. Dean makes the ultimate decisions.
    AJ is not going to take shi# from ANYONE other than Dean Spanos.
    AJ is God!

  62. One other thing Marty let welker go for kick returner Tamarik Vanover. This was the one of the first things to heat up the MArty AJ fued. Please know the facts.

  63. oh and it was marty’s brother to be DC that got marty fired by dean spanos
    but in marty’s defense, he was trying to get fired after yet another playoff chokejob and he was genius enough to make 4.5 mill without having to earn it
    you know marty wanted to be fired simply because he hasn’t decided to come back to coaching yet
    there’s always one desperate team who needs to rebuild, and marty was great at that at least…….too bad he was a playoff cancer

  64. Classless D-bag. While I hate the classless idiots that play the game, their is no excuse for an executive to be such a douche. Have a little professionalism.

  65. hey there jcdavey boy…so smart you are….sounds like you are an “insider” on the Bolts…….ooohhh……. school you: Wes Welker started as kick returner in week 1 against the Texans. But I digress to toy with you…… think about context of this discussion my little friend…this is about AJ and LT, and whether AJ has shown good judgment, because his judgment is now at issue as he decides LT’s fate. It is no about whether you want to give AJ a lap dance. AJ could have made the call on Welker. Let him go…….. AJ could have made the call on Palamalu. His needs were defensive backs mo-ron. Instead, he did what he did, and we are here years later without ever having a quality safety, and struggling with cornerbacks. What else do we have to judge the man on. He drafts players. Not each team has the same needs, so everyone passing on Brady does not address the problem, that is teams that needed a QB who passed on Brady. Oh, blame marty who is not in charge, and not here? How convenient. Before you finish off the Happy Ending for AJ Smith jayceedayey boy, remember that while it makes footbal sense to analyze whether LT should stick around, AJ needs to have the same microscope on him. Have his decisions been good or bad? Bottom Line, AJ needs to go away. His Condon feud led to the loss of the ability to take Eli Manning at QB. His treatment of players will cause him to not have success getting quality free agents to come here. That will damage the team as long as he is here. finally,while you are wiping off your hands, AJ made the call on Eric Weddle and Jacob Hester….we gave up picks to get those guys? Ridiculous!

  66. He’s tired of LT whining and acting as if the fans report to him and it’s his decision whether he stays. AJ summed it up perfectly.
