Little did he know that the 2006 questionable signing of an injured quarterback would come full circle in six years that would have Saints fans and media alike questioning Loomis as to why the same quarterback wasn’t signed to a long-term contract.

Never mind that all while this is going on, Loomis managed to sign major free agent players like linebackers Curtis Lofton and David Hawthorne.  Oh yes, and retain marquee contributors like wide receiver Marques Colston plus reworking contracts to free up salary cap room.

Also waiting in the background is an upcoming eight-game suspension for Loomis from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell because it was said that he failed to stop the alleged bounty program.  Not too shabby for all considered.

Yet even though Loomis has helped engineer one of the most lucrative contracts in NFL history, so few have recognized that it was him at the table and calculator.  Instead, it’s been the name Drew Brees that has been trending since the announcement today.

Loomis has provided some of the most “Where’s your Moses now?” moments I can remember.  Well, it might be more accurate to say it’s more like, “Hate me now, love me later” from Who Dats.
