Saints GM Mickey Loomis Season Was ‘Jerked Out from Under Us’

Saints GM Mickey Loomis feels like his team squandered a chance to get to the Super Bowl, Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

“What’s hard about the end of the season, any season, is that it’s so hard to get to a point where, man, you’ve got a real chance to get to the Super Bowl,” Loomis said Wednesday at the Senior Bowl. “And when something happens, you feel like it got taken away from you. And I’m not saying ‘wrongly’ or anything like that. Just that, hey, it got jerked out from under us.

“And it’s just like, ah, you got thrown back into this deep hole and there’s no light.”

“Look, for the rest of my life, I’m going to feel like, ‘We were this close to being in three Super Bowls,'” Loomis said. “And hopefully it’s more than that.”

“Listen, I felt the same way after ’11 when we got beat in San Francisco,” Loomis said. “The path to getting to the Super Bowl was right there in front of us. Now, look, we would’ve had to complete it – I’m not saying we would have, no different from this one. But there was a path.”
