I don\'t want Jammal Brown to ever perform open-heart surgery on me, but I\'d sure let him start at RT on my football team.
Holy sh** that was funny. Anyways, I don\'t really think that this wonderlic score should be analyzed so much. A guy doesn\'t have to be a genius to play the game of football. This guy gave up ONE SACK in his last TWO SEASONS. I don\'t care if he can\'t ties his shoes, I\'m glad he\'s on our team.

That\'s right, Deuce & BC. I\'d like to see Favre and Bradshaw\'s score.

I know this guy who is a guitair player and he\'s a real dummy. But man he\'s one hell of a gutair player. He can\'t read music. Hell, he can barely read. But he\'s a better guitar player than some guys I know who are extremely talented.

It doesn\'t make any differnce how much those other guys practice, they\'ll never be as good as the \"dummy\" who plays gutair. He was just born with that talent.
Would that be Turdly? I saw him jammin with Fonteno one day...

..again, it is not an \"intelligence\" test.. it is a \"how fast you think under pressure\" test... you could be a heart surgeon and not do well in the wonderli... the wonderlic given to NFL players to be doesn\'t test knowledge...

...yes it doesn\'t take much brains to pancacke one guy coming straight at you, but what about if it is 2 guys? Did you get the whle play in the huddle?...You just set... the LB drops and the SS goes to the line... ball is snapped...do you know where your QB is? Do you know where your RB is?Which one you block and which one you let go?

...once you set, you only got a few seconds to see what\'s going on... once the ball is snapped, you have less seconds to react...

Geez guy, last I heard, you go to college to better PREPARE yourself to earn a decent living. Needless to say after he signs, I think college has prepared him very well. Hell, he can probably buy the damn college now. He will make more money than most of us would ever dream of making yet we attempt to degrade him for scoring low on a test.

He has done nothing to hurt you but you laugh because he did not choose to be a doctor. I\'m sure some doctors will score less than 12 on the Wonderlic then come out and operate on you.

What are y\'all afraid of?

I think he answered these questions last year.
2004, entire year...

Looks like he aced it!

Good point Danno. Can you live with at least a 10 million dollar signing bonus, and a 12 on the wonderlic.

I like that a lot better than a 10 million dollar signing bonus, a 12 on the wonderlic, and him wearing a Panther\'s jersey.

... well, that could very well be, but is not like he was going against Reggie White or Buddy Ryan\'s 46 defense every Saturday.. Anyway, that was not the point of the post... it was to merely point out that the wonderlic the NFL prospects get is not meant to test intelligence, that it attempts to measure cognitive ability, and why some NFL FO\'s may put weigth on it...

..it is just another part of the equation, right there with 40 times in perfect conditions without pads, or bench pressing, etc. , to give FO\'s what they think is a total picture of a player...

Yep, another measurable. Unfortunately this team has had its share of atheletes with good measurables.
We don\'t have enough \"football\" players. I think this kid is a football player, as well as having every single measureable you could ever want in an O-lineman, except a high wonderlic.
