What if

Charlie Frye is currently the 26th best QB, based on passer rating of 68.1. A lowly number, but anyone who knows anything knows that Charlie's numbers are being hurt by some poor play around him.

In particular, of his 5 interceptions, 3 were caused by receivers dropping balls that they should have caught, and one was caused by a blinside hit as he released the ball.

If you were to assume that those 4 bogus interceptions had instead clanged to the ground, his rating would be 86.0, good enough to be tied for 18th in the league.

Alternatively, if you were to assume that those 4 bogus interceptions had instead been caught for 4 more completions, 40 more yards (10 per extra completion), and one more touchdown, his rating would be 95.0, good enough for 8th in the league, one spot higher than Carson Palmer.

Is Frye the real deal? The signs point to "yes".
