Default Vince Young (Can't believe no one has posted this)

I'm sorry, but scoring a 6 is not good...yeah, yeah, I know that it quickly came out that it was graded wrong, and he took it again and scored a 16, and all that, but the only person who could improperly score a wonderlic test could probably only score a 6 themselves.

I know this is gonna ruffle a few feathers, but this story is awfully fishy, and even a 16 is not the kind of score you want an NFL QB scoring. I've taken a bunch of sample wonderlic's before, and, from what I've seen, if you randomly guessed you could score about 15-16. To score a 6, you'd have to be remarkably stupid, or purposefully picking the wrong answers.

This combined with that woeful accuracy score in the College all-stars competition has got to have GM's around the NFL rethinking this kid a little bit.

I might be mistaken but I think Dan Marino scored a 16. At least according to this site:
http://www.angelfire.com/fl3/existence/wonderlic.html

There's alos a brief test on here. I got six of nine right and I don't think any teams want me taking snaps. I want my football players dumb enough to play when they probably shouldn't and to take contracts that pay them less than market value.

Yeah, but that's why they hire agents...

I believe they came out and said that he did not score a 6 but a 16 and it was reported wrong, I'll look for a link... http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/3687374.html

No, they said it was "Graded wrong".

"I know for a fact he did not make 6 on the test because I was told specifically, and I was also told the test was graded wrong the first time," Brown told the Chronicle. "So anyone that's reporting he did that poorly is wrong."

I got 9 right in 47 seconds.

How good is that?

You now what?

I think you could be right - Brady is a special guy - he breaks all the rules for a 6th round QB - I dont see the fundamental rules of mathematics being too much for hurdle for him.
