Team record vs "dead money"

From CBS Sports:

Agent's Take: Some of the NFL's worst teams have this one thing in common - CBSSports.com

Seven NFL teams currently have more than $20 million in dead money. There's a strong correlation between dead money and team performance so far this season. The seven teams leading in dead money have a combined 9-25 record. The Detroit Lions, this season's only winless team, were close with almost $18.5 million in dead money.
1. New Orleans Saints

Dead Money: $31.07 million
Adjusted Salary Cap: $145,092,430
Dead Money Percentage: 21.41%


Now that our scouting department is gone, the magnifying glass should be on Loomis.

I think one needs to be a CPA in order to just read that article. But very telling and where this season went wrong.

Loomis is not to blame for the cap situation. Payton makes the personnel decisions and Loomis has to make sure it can happen within the cap. Dead money is on Payton, not Loomis.

Mickey Loomis is EVP and GM of the franchise.

The blame sits squarely on his shoulders.

Re: Team record vs "dead money"

Don't have time to dig for it but I would love to see some numbers on, historical teams that lead the league in dead money, versus how long the GM is allowed by ownership to stick around.

I'm disgusted. Maybe Tom Benson does need to give up ownership because he sure as hell isn't going to hold Loomis and Payton accountable.

As someone on here told me Loomis is a yes man. Payton runs the whole show.

Loomis is the bean counter... Payton makes all of the personnel decisions. Both have done an awful job the last couple of years.
