Did anyone notice Cairo kicked off to Tyjae to start the Titans vs Bears game? We are a football school! Darnell Mooney was on the sidelines.

Yep. Saints will be paying for that mistake for a long time. Just glad he didn't end up at Atlanta or Carolina where we'd have to face him twice a year.

How do you not draft this kid and he’s right in your back yard? Just incredible. Totally bizzare. Same thing with Forte. Embarrassing.

When the Saints' third round pick came up, Mickey Loomis (or Dennis Allen or whoever) picked Miller from TCU over Tyjae Spears. What has Miller done compared to Spears so far? Tyjae might be the difference in helping the Titans upset the Saints in NFL game # 1. Spears does pretty well for a guy who has an arthritic knee. Miller is beginning to look a lot like Zion Williamson to me so far!

I hope Miller works out. Tyjae is probably better off there. He’d probably be behind AK for years right or wrong. At least in Tennessee he’ll get an opportunity.
I still think the Saints fumbled again on this obvious slam dunk pick.

Indicative of a screwed-up organization. There are several sprinkled around the NFL. The Broncos went from Super Bowl champs to a complete basket case primarily because of incredibly bad draft selections. The Texans are another example of an organization that can't evaluate talent, making some remarkably bad personnel decisions. The Saints seems to be on a similar path now. Tyjae is going to thrive with the Titans and have an immediate impact on their success.

I didn't see any of the Saints/Titans game. How did Tyjae do? Did he get many chances?

I saw that play on Red Zone live. Tannehill threw an awful pass.

I miss him a ton wearing the olive and blue and the Saints could have drafted him.

Saints organization is headed for a downfall fast. Oldest team in the league. In QB purgatory. 84 million over the cap. Bad coaching staff. Tyjae in much better place for him.
