In regards to the Wonderlic test:


In general, says Wonderlic, "The closer you are to the ball, the higher your score."

This assessment roughly corresponds to the averages revealed, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, by an NFL personnel man in Paul Zimmerman's "The New Thinking man's Guide to Pro Football," which are:

Offensive tackles: 26
Centers: 25
Quarterbacks: 24
Guards: 23
Tight Ends: 22
Safeties: 19
Middle linebackers: 19
Cornerbacks: 18
Wide receivers: 17
Fullbacks: 17
Halfbacks: 16

The average scores in other professions look like this:

Chemist: 31
Programmer: 29
Newswriter: 26
Sales: 24
Bank teller: 22
Clerical Worker: 21
Security Guard: 17
Warehouse: 15

thanks for flame retardant as the haters were about to use this against TJ. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do about a 25 yr old back, maybe that is why Morency was a value pick in the 3rd.

People Travis Johnson scored higher then on teh Wonderlic...Derrick Johnson scored a 21, Marcus Spears didn't take his Wonderlic at the Combinem, Morency who got an 11 (just so I'mnot accused of being a Casserly homer), Odell Thurman with a 12, and a slew of others. Here's the link http://www.nfldraftscout.com/ratings...test&order=ASC

I don't understand why Aaron Glenn seeking a trade would be between Coach Capers and Aaron Glenn, with GM Charley Casserly on the sidelines. I though the GM was in charge of personnel issues such as the draft, contract negotiations, trades and managing the salary cap. Of course you want your GM to communicate and work together with the coach. However, this particular scenario sounds a little strange to me.

Capers has a HUGE hand who he wants on the team and is more invloved with those types of transactions.

This was a complete dodge of the question by Casserly. The GM CLEARLY has a handle on all personnel issues.

Texanfan,

To the point where the GM is washing his hands in relation to this rather high profile move? If that is right, then Coach Capers is taking on more of a GM role than I had thought possible. This is all very interesting.

Yeah, can't imagine how people from different cultures can all come up with the answers to questions like these:

Quote:
1. Assume the first 2 statements are true. Is the final one:
1 true, 2 false, 3 not certain?
The boy plays baseball. All baseball players wear hats.
The boy wears a hat.

2. Paper sells for 21 cents per pad. What will 4 pads cost?

This trade for draft picks involving PB and the decision to notify AG he's
free to shop himself to other teams are part and parcel of one process
which is the brain child of Cass. And to be sure, Capers was hired by Cass
and he can be fired by him so he reports to him, just as Cass & Bob McNair
have that same relationship. Capers is merely doing Cass's dirty work for
him.

Those weren't even the easiest questions. The one with "which does not belong?" with 4 4-sided and one 6 sided shape and "the ninth month of the year is"...real toughies.
