yeah looks like we are gonna lose glenn but i think as good and mature as D. Rob got last season maybe he can help improve PB on some of his skills.

I am most upset with the 1st two picks we had. All the other I am ok with, especially Mathis (I had us picking him up in our mock draft). The Texans have not been without error the last year and I feel they have missed a couple of picks this year. This by far will be the most interesting year. In no year yet have we had any kind of stabilization on the defense.

I agree with you about the Mathis pick. He could be one of the bigger steals of the draft when we look back in a few years. I like what I've heard about Hogdgon, but I haven't seen many ASU games. Have to take CC and DC's word for it till we see him on the field.

What is the big deal about having everybody being young? You've got to have solid veterans in there as well. This is going to take us a long while to recover from.

It is not so much an IQ test and a test of your ability to think quickly. You only have 12 minutes to answer the fifty questions

The NFL game moves pretty quickly, ya know.

im not so sure it will take us a long time to recover from but i do believe there is a right mix of veterans that need to be on the team. glenn and others were great helping dunta. i remember after duntas 2nd INT and the long return in the raiders game glenn was the first to go over to dunta. i think glenn might help PB also. oh well. i just hope glenn will stay.

i am more upset that Glenn could be traded.. whether it is the Texan or his decision.
I REALLY liked how we match up to,say Buffalo and INDY, with Buchanon,DROB and Glenn... and if Glenn goes, I am not saying we won't match up,but it will hurt. I also liked Glenns leadership, being we are trying to get younger, we need someone to show them the way.

Well im glad you find that humourous (Sarcasm, if you're not smart enough to figure that out). TJ was acquitted by and all female jury in less than 30 minutes, that should say enough right there.

He was acquitted in 30 minutes by the jury. It usually takes longer than that for them to figure out who the foreman(person for the PC crowd). Some of y'all really need to apply the same standards to yourself you apply to players. Ever been ACCUSED of something you didn't do?--doesn't matter, evidently you are still guilty.

As far as the wonderlic goes, I know that I wouldn't do very well on it even though I have a pretty high IQ. I am not a fast reader, and tend to re-read each question on a test before I answer it. With only 12 minutes in which to answer 50 questions, I might answer every question correctly, but still only score a 12-15 because I only had time to answer that many. What I'm getting at is that for people like Gore, with learning disabilities, or someone with ADD, or even someone like me that doesn't read very fast, this timed test could give you a false read on the persons intelligence, or thought processes.

Wouldn't that translate into taking a longer time to learn the playbook and instruction?

You have Line Backer 2 prospects. On the field both are statsically equal. Both are the same size, speed, and are character guys.

One scores a 22 on the Wonderlic
The other scores a 13

Given that each can *play* football - As a general manager which one do you pick?

I would gather that something like that would not be that big of a difference from round to round but it does create another degree of seperation. It is just another *way* to judge the guys you are going to draft. Some call it biased and I understand thier reasons for saying those types of things - but this is the NFL and you only have room for the best.
