Good column about how A.J. Smith has totally screwed the Chargers when it comes to player negotiations. Looks like we'll not only not have to face Vincent Jackson or Marcus McNeill this year, but this stalemate from the "Lord of No Rings" will continue to hurt the Chargers: "Sources say Jackson’s agents will attempt to get back at Smith by making sure their receiver, once he ends up with a new team next spring (or later, depending upon the uncertain labor landscape), has an inordinately low base salary for 2011 – which would likely reduce the compensatory pick the Chargers would receive for losing Jackson from a potential third-rounder to a sixth- or seventh-round selection." This is the kind of thing that makes sending Cutler to the Bears, Marshall to the Dolphins and Scheffler to the Lions all that much better. Sending off players with class is just the right move.
