MOBILE, Ala. -- New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis visited with the media Tuesday to review the 2013 season and look ahead to 2014. The hottest topic, obviously, was the looming contract talks with free agent tight Jimmy Graham and the possible battle over his franchise-tag designation.

But Loomis also broke down a variety of interesting topics during the lengthy Q&A session. He also spoke about the departure of quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi to the Detroit Lions and the Saints’ growing coaching tree. I’ll break down more of the highlights in a variety of specific posts over the next couple days.

But first, some of Loomis’ overall thoughts on the season that just ended – an 11-5 campaign that fell short of the ultimate goal when the Saints lost in the divisional round of the playoffs at Seattle.

“I think this: We had a good year, a lot of real good things to feel good about. And yet it wasn’t a great year because we’re not in the Super Bowl,” Loomis said. “And that’s just where we’re at as a program. We expect and want to play in that game, and we want to win it. And we had a chance. I thought our coaches and players did a great job. And yet when you lose that last one, you’re always wanting more.
