Former FO writer Michael David Smith has some good news for Jay Cutler.
Although the Bears' passer has been justifiably criticized for the number of interceptions he has thrown this year (22), so have most of the quarterbacks selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame since 1945. Of the 23 passers selected since that year, 14 of them once led the league in interceptions.
"The only type of quarterback who can throw that many interceptions is one who has the confidence and the skill to keep throwing when things get tough," former running back Marshall Faulk said.
Faulk played alongside Peyton Manning when he led the league in interceptions in his rookie season, 1998, and with Marc Bulger when he led the league in interceptions in 2003.
