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.

.. and I agree with you...

Interesting Brock Berlin QB from Miami sliped pretty far in the draft because of the wonderlic score exam he scored a 13. Intresting Dan Marino\'s playing number for the Dolphins was 13.

No, Brock Berlin\'s draft status slipped because he is a -ty QB. It had nothing to do with the wonderlic

There -are- certain situations where a high wonderlic certainly wouldn\'t hurt. Like at center, for instance, or at quarterback.

Don\'t we agree that a QB that learns/reacts more quickly is less likely to make mental mistakes? And that could certainly certainly be a factor in a close game.

I bring up the example (as someone else did in this thread) of AB\'s propensity for wasted time-outs. He could play smarter than that. And he\'s consistent about it.

I think that we all know that Wonderlic is not the end-all and be-all of playing football. But I also think it\'s fairly reasonable to state that at certain positions, and in certain situations, a high wonderlic can be an asset. Whereas a low one could be a detriment.

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

Qui a laissez sortir les chiens!

What I\'m about to say has very little to do with Aaron Brooks and more to do with getting to the truth.

You stated that AB wasted timeouts. When, in fact, it\'s been widely reported that by Jim Haslett that they weren\'t getting the play to AB in time to get the play off.

Which is one of the reasons why they are cutting down on the lengthy teminology of the plays.

With the facts I know .. it seems to me that Brooks wasn\'t at fault. Guess that depends on whether or not you believe Haslett.

Alright Gumbo, I retract that remark about timeouts as an example. Assuming that\'s why all the timeouts where wasted, then that was a bad example to pose. And problems calling in plays is a beliveable difficulty of which I was unaware.

Let\'s try a different tack, but bearing on the same point I was making.

Q: everything else being equal, would you rather have a smart quarterback, or a dumb one?

Q: do you believe that wonderlic scores have any value whatsoever as intelligence indicators?

Those are the issues I was addressing.

I\'d rather have an intelligent QB over a dummy.

I don\'t place a lot of value in the wonderlic test as a true indicator of intelligence. It\'s not designed to measure intelligence. It\'s designed to see how fast you can answer a buch of questions in a short period of time. Sounds more like a \"decision-making\" test to me?

Just wanted to clear the thing up about Brooks being responsible for burning those timeouts.

The wonderlic has absolutely no value whatsoever. They just give these guys the test because they need a break to go get coffee and doughnuts. Those coaches and scouts are constantly looking for things to do to fill the extra time they have. They probably just give it so they can all sit around and have a big laugh after everyone else is gone.
