Why does Loomis get so much credit?


I just don't see the "love" for Loomis. I think he sucks.

Sure, he has found some diamonds in the rough like Graham, PT, Moore, Gallette, Hicks and some guys who have been serviceable: Dave Thomas, Grubbs, Robinson, Casillas, Mack

But for any one of those guys, I can give you just as many that he has absolutely bombed on, with special attention to the busts in the first few rounds. I don't have any faith in him to get this defense back on track talent-wise, and keep pace with San Fran or Seattle for tops in the NFC.

Some FA and draft bombs:
Ingram (1st rd pick)
J. Patrick
Al Woods
Ellis (1st rd pick)
Jenkins (1st rd pick)
A. Franklin
Herring
S. Rogers
A. Pittman
Tennant
various other OL
McBride
Bush (yes, Reggie was a bust at #2 overall)
Meachem (1st rd pick that wasn't 1st rd talent)

...not to mention the absolute bombs he picked/acquired before Payton's arrival.

He is not a scout. He is the money guy. He doesn't find talent. He fits their salaries under the cap. If you want to blame someone for "bombs" then blame the coaches.

Because every pick always works out in every other organization, right? Sheesh.

Why in the hell do we need a top defense when we can score 45+ a game with our offense? Just a mediocre defense would keep us in most games.

And look where that has gotten us (other than 2009), not very far...you need talent, scheme and execution on both sides of the ball
