So it should follow that if he's not a true GM then he's not a real general manager, which is the point that's being illustrated...
The article eludes to Loomis failing because of deals with players like

"Which brings us to the recent moves, and pending moves, Loomis has made in the last three years; moves that have proved very costly and restrictive to the teams success like that of Jairus Byrd, Junior Galette, C.J. Spiller Ben Grubbs...
"

I dont think he has anything to do with who those players are. He just finds money to sign them. Maybe he isnt a true GM, but that doesnt make him a failure. He does what he is supposed to do. Every year we have cap problems and every year he finds money to sign "big name" free agents. That is his job and his forte. The fault lies with Payton and the scouts when it comes to the players who are bought with that money.
We dont know what happens behind closed doors. For all we know he could be begging and pleading with Payton not to sign these guys to no avail.
