Why wouldn't someone want AJ Smith as GM? The guy puts together a talented roster every year and never lets a player get the best of him in a contract negotiation. His only mistake was preferring Rivers over Brees, but Brees was coming off a serious shoulder injury and going with Rivers was a no-brainer at the time.
