Dear A.J. Smith, It’s Time to Swallow Your Pride

Extremely stubborn GM’s are rare for a reason.

Tra Thomas has decided to hang up the cleats and call it a career. Corey Clark called it a career before it even really started. Brandyn Dombrowski has shown that he can handle the left side, but is somewhat inconsistent. Tyronne Green is good, but needs more work and experience before he’ll be ready. And Marcus McNeill is still sitting at home without a long-term contract and no end to the holdout in sight.

And this is all started when general manager A.J. Smith decided that upholding his pride and hard-nosed style was more important than putting the best players on the field for his Chargers.

As the Chargers’ left tackle position continues to find itself in deeper and deeper of a hole, having Marcus McNeill on the practice field would be a sight for sore eyes. And with Philip Rivers seemingly looking to contribute as a linebacker after his display against the Cowboys, he needs the best protection possible when he isn’t trying to make highlight tackles.

Despite the fact that Dombrowski has held his own so far this pre-season, McNeill would be a huge upgrade and a big boost to the offense. I’m sure running back Ryan Mathews would be glad to run behind that big body too.

So in short, enough is enough A.J. Time to stop worrying about your reputation and start worrying about the success of your team. Give McNeill a contract and get this offensive line back on track.
