NFL Combine wonderlic results

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I tried couting up to 46 one time, back in the early 90\'s, but I ran outta fingers. I couldn\'t use the toes \'cause I had shoes on. Guess that means I\'m qualified to be a halfback. What was Dan ...

I tried couting up to 46 one time, back in the early 90\'s, but I ran outta fingers. I couldn\'t use the toes \'cause I had shoes on. Guess that means I\'m qualified to be a halfback.

What was Dan Marino\'s score? 16, something like that? He did fairly well for a dummie....I do believe Wonderlic scores have a place, but I don\'t think they\'re the end all of end alls.

It\'s interesting to note that tackles are tops on that list. That surprised me. The center is no surprise, as that guy calls the blocking schemes at the line, but the tackles score was unexpected.

can anyone help me id this tune? it goes thwap thwap boom tch boom tch boom tch.

Qui a laissez sortir les chiens!

I wonder where a moderator on a Saints board is on this list?
Pakowitz: 1000 (yeah, that\'s 20 times better than is possible, but he\'s Yoda!)
WhoDat: 46/47
Saintz08: 40 (it takes a lot to come up with those conspiracy theories).
Saintfan: 33 (arch enemy or not, he\'s well above the average)
JoeSam: 21 (Average for a big guy)
Halo: 17 (You\'ve gotta be a little dumb to keep THIS site running!)
BnB: 2 (He and bubba are pals).

LMAO. Can\'t wait to see BnB\'s response!

I think it\'s just a piece of the puzzle in talent evaluation. For a QB, I would put more into it, but you can certainly be field smart without doing well on this test. For a guy like DJ, I would say it\'s not that big of a deal. (It would be interesting to see Singletary\'s score or Ray Lewis since we\'re talking top LBs.) I\'ll bet LT didn\'t break 20

Some guys may not be \"smart\", but have great field awareness and instincts, making their test score less important. I would bet Montana did well on this test. In AB\'s case, I don\'t know that it\'s as much his low score (for a QB) as it is his inablility to objectively criticize himself and improve where aplicable. That\'s more ego than stupid. The truly great ones (as he calls himself) are never satisfied with anything short of perfection. Guys like Rice and Jordan kept pushing even after reaching the top of the mountain multiple times.......AB got a division title and started posing for his Hall of Fame bust. Nothing to do with dumb....everything to do with self motivation and the heart of a champion

Average is located on Airline Drive, camouflaged as the Saints practice facility.

I think that the wonderlic test shows how good you are at being able to think through situations...whichis very good for the players we want
