In a recent article in The Sporting news, San Diego Chargers' GM A.J. Smith said that he had no regrets about drafting - and trading - Eli Manning in 2004.

"He was a Charger for 45 minutes," Smith said "and that was too much time to be a Charger, in my opinion."

Smith was of course referring to Manning's openness about not playing for San Diego, a mindset that was said to have come from Eli's famous father and brother.
