What do you think Mike McCagnans biggest regret will be?

Macc was all about keeping his job, not necessarily winning games. 

So notwithstanding all of his boneheaded moves listed above and then some, his biggest mistake was not sucking up to Gase, doing what he was told, listening to his input and instead leaving positions uncovered.  Gase then had him shot.  He could have survived if he was smart enough to get in Gase’s good side 

Actually, although a good analysis by you I have to disagree.

Gase, as I already heard him state, is “all about winning”, he thinks he has the formula, so if you’re not with him you’re gone.

He saw Maccagnan as the moronic drone slug trying to keep his job by playing it as safe as possible....that he is.  He saw who Maccagnan really is QUICKLY.  It’s obvious to anyone with any intelligence, that Gase definitely has, that you’re never winning with Maccagnan on your payroll, just like anyone with Bowles as coach will never win (unless you can stock your D with 10 All Pros EVERY year, enjoy Tampa).  Gase doesn’t like or have time to associate with idiots...and he WON’T.

I listened to a very interesting podcast the other day where this kid Michael Nania analyzed Maccagnan’s career, going back to Houston, assigning numeric grades to every move he made.  His time in Houston actually was almost a mirror image of what happened with the Jets.  Outside of hitting a few 1st Rd picks in JJ Watt and Mercilus, Maccagnan, he was beyond abominable.  2nd Rd and below were total washouts, just like with the Jets.  According to this analysis Maccagnan actually graded BELOW John Idzik, which even puts the “well at least he’s better than Idzik” narrative to bed.  I’m talking a little kid with a blindfold playing pin the tail on the donkey does way way better than Maccagnan.  And again, this isn’t just “oh he had a bad year here and a bad year there, happens to every talent evaluator”...this was across the motherf**kin board 10,15,20 years if you count his time with the Jets.  

There was a REASON why we now know he was about to GET FIRED in Houston and Woody Johnson was out to lunch and just wanted the process completed probably so he took the word of that piece of garbage Casserly who vouched for the horrific dolt.

He owes Casserly everything though.  He is now a multimillionaire when he never should have been hired...by anyone.  The lame coffee drinking con he was always trying to play wasn’t even necessary...because the Jet owner was probably more involved in politics than his team.

Think if he takes Mahomes or Watson, he probably still has this job. Not saying he nor Bowles do any better, but basically the team had no offense at all coming out of the 2017 draft. Bowles very much deserved to be fired then, but a GM could at least sell rebuilding with a shiny new franchise QB, and he would have the timetable moved up a year, and with a new HC.

I repeat-the Jets did not have a credible NFL offense in year 3 of his regime. 

Simply even with the 2016 Hackenberg cock up, the 2017 draft was a catastrophe. How do you go into the 2017 without an offense? How did he sell that to ownership and the fan base with a straight face? 

He was NEVER going to pick a QB in the 1st Rd...ever.  Because a 1st Rd QB miss, unless your last name is Elway guarantees quick job loss.  He’s a f**kin moron and he actually knows it.  He has no confidence in his own abilities, which are none, hence the fact that he is slow and terrified to pull the trigger on moves which we all have learned recently.

But by 2018 his back was to the proverbial wall.  Mandate was come home with a QB or don’t come back.  Rebuffed by Cousins and his 4-26 Record vs winning teams.  The Jet QB right now could easily be Josh Allen or Rosen.  Maccagnan was stuck, he couldn’t even have picked Sequan Barkley at that point.

No QB with Christian Hackenberg's college resume has ever succeeded in the NFL.  Ever. 

And not only did he take Hackenberg in the 2nd round, he doubled down on him the next season too, passing on Mahomes and Watson in the process.

So yes, it was the worst draft pick in Jets history.  Because Macc actually thought that a guy with a 0 % chance of succeeding would be our franchise QB. 

You left out the part about having to ship 3#2’s away also, for what easily could have been Josh Allen or Rosen.

So ecstatic that idiot is no longer in the Jet Front Office.
