In theory, New Orleans Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis might have stalked the halls of the team's Metairie headquarters last week as one bummed-out football executive.

The team he did so much to mold had, one year after its greatest triumph in the Super Bowl, lost a wild-card playoff game in chilly Seattle to one of the biggest underdogs in NFL postseason history. Two days later, his alma mater, the University of Oregon, fell just short of winning its first national championship in football.
