There are a lot of quarterbacks in the NFL who would put up awesome stats minus the interception total if they had nothing to lose.
Carolina this year sucked until they were out of the playoffs and then they let him play just like he did last year. They didn't care if he threw interceptions so they let him go out and just throw it just as they did last year. That might win you games, but it won't win you Super Bowls.
The Panthers won 5 out of their last 6. His interceptions and fumbles were far lower during the Panthers last six games. He had 10 picks and 9 fumbles during the first 10 games and two picks and 1 fumble during the last 6. His overall numbers for his rookie year and this year were very similar. In most areas, he was slightly better.
But I agree he wouldn't handle this job very well. Doesn't matter though b/c they would never trade him.
