Chargers | GM prefers Philip Rivers over Eli Manning

San Diego Chargers general manager A.J. Smith does not regret the blockbuster draft deal he orchestrated in 2004 when he traded QB Eli Manning to the New York Giants for QB Philip Rivers, even though Manning and the Giants won a Super Bowl after the 2007 season. Smith believes it absolutely was the right move. "I believe with my heart and soul that he one day will lead the Chargers to a world championship," Smith said. "He's a great quarterback - a phenomenal leader with great character, great work habits."
