It is not useless...

What it does is shows how quickly a person can reason under stress of time. It correlates to a few things... can a QB quickly check off receives and make decisions? If they can't do some simply math under stress, they may not be able to make judgement decisions under stress as well.

Of course, some people just don't test well. Others don't tranlates instinct to thought process (which was probably Bradshaw's problem).

He-he-he-he...

I remember the first time we did this. It was around the time Vince Young turned out to be illiterate and the NFL covered for him just like UT did.

Anyway, I took a sample test and made the (now) obvious mistake of posting up how quickly I got all 10 answers right. I did so to make a point about how easy the test was, not to compete with anyone...however, within a post or two, remarkably, LITP smoked my score. In fact, I think he answered all 10 questions correctly in less time than a human could actually read the ten questions, but, again, I digress.

Needless to say, between me, koopa and LITP, let's just forget about the wonderlic.
