Robby Anderson's a good WR

Edit: So is Crowder

There's no real explosive pass catcher but Bell/Anderson/Crowder's a solid trio and there's depth with Enunwa and Herndon...mostly I think it comes down to Darnold finishing strong over three months rather just one like last year. Guy's got a good 120 years after he retires in 2050 to get mono again if you know what I mean wink wink nudge nudge so hopefully he keeps that in mind

Jay Cutler dropped dimes like that all the time (and played with many bad OLines so got the opportunity a lot). Yet he was just an average QB because he wasn't consistent and could as easy throw up multi turnover games, including 4, 5 pick games.

Jay had 12 3+ INT games in 153 career starts. 7% of his starts! Sam has 4 such games through 19 starts. 22%! Jay threw 160 INT. 1.045 per game. Sam has thrown 24. 1.29 per game.

Here's some really QBs who can/could also throw the occasional dimes and the rate at which they had 3+ INT games

Mahomes 1/25
Rodgers 4/175
Brady 8/278
P. Manning 20/266
Brees 18/268

Take it down a caliber
Rivers 11/222
Roethlisberger 13/218
Ryan 10/182
Stafford 12/149

Historical comparisons?
Favre (the gunslinger in a era of more ints) 39/302

On Sam's side is his youth and that he can perhaps escape from the career death trap that is the NYJ (and I say that cuz I know what one looks like as a Bears fan) . Then perhaps he can be more average like Eli Manning who still loved throwing pics and was very very average, but won a couple SB!

So do the Bears send anyone to the Kaepernick workout?

Yes, the guy who missed a quarter of the season with the kissing disease is genetically superior
