A significant trade deadline for Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson quietly came and went Wednesday afternoon, save for a couple loud parting jabs by Jackson's agents.

Johnathon Feinsod and Neil Schwartz both represent Jackson and provided a united front after the Chargers could not agree to compensation with a trading partner by 1 p.m. Wednesday. Instead of four games, Jackson will now miss at least six if he's to play this season, which has become increasingly doubtful.

“Archie Manning was right about this organization,” Schwartz told ProFootballTalk in the minutes following the deadline's pass. Manning did not want his son Eli to be drafted by the Chargers in 2004.

Schwartz came out with a similar comment.

“Archie Manning had it right,” Feinsod said to ESPN. “They call [G.M. A.J. Smith] 'The Lord of No Rings' for a reason.”

'The Lord of No Rings' moniker was first coined by North County Times columnist Jay Paris.

Feinsod told NBCSanDiego.com the agents "jumped through hula hoops" to get a deal done.

"We're very very disappointed," Feinsod said. "He's going to end up leaving (the Chargers) and there's going to be no trade compensation." 

Jackson wasn't quiet either, telling the NFL Network's Jason La Canfora by text that “it feels unethical and I am disappointed.”

My agents and teams interested did everything to make it happen, but this organization stopped it,” Jackson said to La Canfora. “I just want to play football.”

Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reported Tuesday that the Chargers wanted second- and third-round picks for compensation, likely effectively stymieing a possible deal with the Minnesota Vikings.

Smith was not immediately available for comment.
