Default Two Kinds of Popes?

Is it possible, as some are saying, that there are two kinds of Popes, good and bad?

I tend to doubt this, because it has all kinds of repercussions for the Church that are largely unexplored in theology.

The idea that there are two different types of Popes, the good and sincere versus the evil and corrupt, has radical consequences for the sin of schism, for the primacy of jurisdiction of the Pope and his direct and immediate authority, for the validity and trustworthiness of Ecumenical Councils, for the laws of the Church, for the authority of Cardinals and Bishops appointed by Popes, and ultimately for the indefectibility of the Church.
