I think mCd is smart, I just don't think he is mature enough to handle the top job. Second guessing himself and not being patient to see how things work out.
He unloaded Smith too early, he fell in love with the idea of what he could make Tebow into, he pulled that trade for Voltron while everyone was at lunch. Lots of odd moves buy a guy who had no faith in himself or the people around him.
