They can play football sure, but the only thing keeping them going in the right direction on the field is they can recognize their teammates uniforms.

Imagine if Bernie Kosar scored a 5 or less? His color blindness would have totally screwed him. :grin1:

Andrew Luck scores a - 41


This is a great *

*A high Wonderlic score does not necessarily indicate intelligence, nor does a low Wonderlic score indicate a lack of intelligence.

So why do they have it?

The Wonderlich is such a joke for NFL players. A low score doesn't mean you'll be terrible anymore than a high score means you'll be great. The NFL needs to rethink that whole process and come up with something better or just do away with it completely.

Correct, a center with a high score would be a good fact to know.

Sorry but I do think the Wonderlic is valid. There is a reason the GM's take the test every year weather you want to value it or not.

Tebow is stupid, can't read defenses...got a 9 on the wonderlic
Vince Young is stupid, can't read defenses..got a 9 on the wonderlic


I believe I heard them say the last 8 Super Bowl QB's all average at least a 26 or more on the wonderlic

tebow scored a 22

ben got like a 25, the stat was most superbowl winning QBs are actually smart guys scoring around a 25. its valid, might not affect on field play but it is something to be considered. you could get 12ish by putting c for every answer so getting a 4 would be alarming, its a tricky test but its far from hard

K Train,

I just looked it up and indeed Tebow got a 22. I could have sworn I heard he got a 9.

But you see my point K Train.
