You think Sean Payton has no input on the resigning of players like marques colston, roman harper, will smith, carl nicks, jonathan goodwin, etc? You think Mickey takes no input from Sean as to where they need to use the team's cap space moving forward?
When Loomis' ONE JOB is to manage the money, he better be damn good at it.
Does Payton have a say in who to re-sign, who to let go, etc? Sure he does. He also has a shite ton of other responsibility, like making sure our offense is able to carry the team, like scouting offensive personnel coming out of college, like managing an entire football team.
Why is Loomis here? Doesn't grade talent, that is painfully obvious.
"He's the best goddarn bean counter in da league!! Dats wut he is!!!!"
uhhh yea. Ok.
And we have a large number of contributions from players in their 1st year deal. Problem is they didn't develop nor contribute like they've should and we have a large amount of instability on the defensive side of the ball past couple years.
Cause someone has to play. Our defensive drafting has been horrible. Of course we have players on their 1st deal, naturally. THey just aren't worth a shite.
