Re: A.J. Smith Expected to Join Redskins Front Office As Advisor

I'm not worried about AJ Smith's ability to evaluate talent. He's proven that he has a good eye for talent already. I just hope that his attitude doesn't override his opinions. Luckily he'll be in a role here where he won't get to make big decisions like who goes.

^^ LOLOL

Yes, that is a black mark against him. At the same time, I think it goes more toward his desire for control - he needed someone who be his lackey and NT fits that bill.

Just keep Smith away from any personnel/management decisions and keep him evaluating player talent and he will be a fine addition.

AJ Smith was an ass who cared more about control and looking like the genius in charge. It worked when he focused on talent. When he focused on managing....well everything went to hell.

Yeah, but that was before Norv established himself as a loser. In JKK's hay day he would not have lasted 2 years. All JKK cared about was building JKK stadium, in the end. Don't get me wrong he was an incredible owner. After all he did, as soon as he died, the name changed to Fedex. Kind of pissed me off.

Re: A.J. Smith Expected to Join Redskins Front Office As Advisor

My first thought of AJ Smith (from a paranoid Redskins fan point of view) was the 2nd coming of VC. But you guys, sort of, talked me off that ledge. I know he's a better talent evaluator than Vinnie, but he is the same arrogant, backbiting kinda fool that Vinnie was, or so I think. Maybe I am not off the ledge quite yet.

@SkinsOrNuthin 15 drafted Pro bowlers since 2003.. More Than anyone, including the Patriots.



Not sure why Skins fans (especially on twitter) are flipping out about this.(not you in particular CR, just in general) AJ Smith is a very good talent evaluator. His main problem was his ego and bullheadedness with his players. He let quality talent walk away from the team without getting anything in return. We really don't know if some of this centered around San Diego having a cheap ass owner that didn't want to spend money.

I wouldn't go as far as to put Vinny and Smith in the same category at all. Vinny had a low self esteem issue, Smith has a high self esteem issue.


I don't give a shit what anybody says...this is a hell of a resume.

San Diego Chargers: A.J. Smith

Yup. I think he has a lot of manager Vinny in him. I don't think he will be making any personnel decisions though:

BA: So, what do you think of this guy AJ?
AJ: He's solid, don't overpay for him though.
BA: Okay. Thanks.
AJ: Also, I think I got a cheap guy to play ILB so you can pretty much void Fletcher's contract.
MS: Shut up AJ.

AJ is a lot of things....many negative, but he's not even near the same class of jackass that VC ended up being.

Exactly. The Chargers have struggled as of late but thanks in large part to him they were among the most talented teams in the league for a while. Though he kind of sunk his own career by sticking with Norv for so long. Anyway on paper it looks pretty good to have him as a key player in the supporting cast.
