Default The QB Wonderlic Controversy

I know.......it's the offseason, and it's difficult to find anything halfway interesting to talk about. I came across this year-old piece that lists QB Wonderlic scores. Many dispute the value of this test. This article has an interesting perspective on proportionate and inverse correlations. What's your take? [FOR THE ENTIRE ARTICLE]

Drew Henson 42
Alex Smith 40

I've highlighted the QBs that are proven IMO . I think that some guys majored in football since they were 12 and that explains why they aren't book smart . I also think it's about how fast you go from brain to arm and the accuracy of that decision .

Generally speaking, the higher, the better. I think McNabb had a bad day, he's a smarter passer than those around him and he did get a degree at Syracuse.

pair it with a Carr jersey in some frame art and you would have quite the conversation piece in the gameroom.

The only for-sure fault I can find with your list is that you didn't BOLD multi-MVP, Superbowl winner Brett Favre.

...please tell me that was an oversight.

Left off because he's not smart enough to know when to quit.

Also thought Hasselbeck should've been bolded. While he's not elite he has proven he can get his team to the SB. I think a fair case can be made for Marc Bulger too.

Favre was a second round pick who was drafted by the Falcons . Glanville was pissed because he wanted a LB and wouldn't have anything to do with him . The GM ... I think Wolf ... went to Green Bay and traded a 1st rounder to the Falcons for Favre . Glanville showed them didn't he .

Alright, I missed the 1st Rounder part...my bad. But, much like Demeco, Favre was a pretty good bargain for a very high 2nd rounder.

The funny thing about Favre is , he was a wishbone QB in highschool . His Dad was his coach and said that was the best offense for the personel they had . His dad took him to Southern Miss for an audition because he wasn't offered scholarships . The coach told his dad that they didn't need a wishbone QB , which his dad said ... he can throw , we just didn't throw much . They let Favre throw and signed him and the rest is history .

He also "earned" a special ed oriented teacher
degree before he scored his near-Vick Wonderlic. I think kids benefited from his final career choice.

Default Re: The QB Wonderlic Controversy

Some of the scores can be very misleading though. Drew Henson scored a 42, but he was 26 years old. You have gained a vast amount of knowledge as a 26 year old compared to a 21-22 year old which gives a guy like Henson an easier time on the test. Obvioulsy he's a smart guy, but he has an advantage on the test because of his age.
