Vince Young, the pathetically dumb quarterback

Exit 117

Recommended Posts

from PFT:





A league source tells us that there's a rumor making the rounds at the combine that Texas quarterback Vince Young scored a miserably horrible six on the Wonderlic test.




A six! That's bad. It's beyond bad. In fact, it's the lowest score that we can ever remember hearing anyone getting.




All incoming NFL players take a 50-question version of the Wonderlic, with a 12-minute window within which to finish it.




We found 15 sample Wonderlic questions on ESPN.com's page 2, including such brain-benders as selecting the ninth month of the year from among five possible choices. We'd like to think that most people of average intelligence could get at least six of the 15 sample questions right.




Getting a total of only six out of a total of 50 questions of that same kind is pa-freakin'-thetic. For a guy who's going to be called upon to read defenses and call audibles and work through a progression of receivers against NFL-caliber opposition, it's downright scary.




The source tells us that he hasn't seen the result in writing yet, but that he's "99 percent" certain that Young's score was six.




Said the source, who knows a thing or two about evaluating college players:




"I predict he'll fall all the way out of the first round."




That's a bold statement, and we're not saying that we agree with it -- primarily because our guess is that there's someone almost dumb enough to get a six on the Wonderlic, who'll overlook Young's low score along with any other concerns that might come to light over the next two months.


What is that sound I hear? Well, I'll be damned, it's Jay Cutler not going to the Jets.

Texans | Casserly comments about Young's Wonderlic test

Sun, 26 Feb 2006 15:14:44 -0800


Houston Texans general manager Charley Casserly said at the NFL Combine Sunday, Feb. 26, he had heard about Texas QB Vince Young's score on the Wonderlic test. He also said he heard from a good source that the test results were inaccurate. "Yes, I have been told it was inaccurate, by a source good enough for me to stand up here and quote it. Otherwise I wouldn't get up here and just say it," said Casserly. He was asked how the test would impact the Texans opinion of Young and he replied, "Well, I can only speak for the Houston Texans. I can't speak for 31 other teams. I just said how we evaluate it. It doesn't make any difference what the test score is to us. We're going to go through the same evaluation. I could point to players that have high test scores but couldn't necessarily learn football. So you go through that process, and then we'll evaluate that player's ability to learn our system at the end of it."

John Clayton of ESPN reported that Young took it prior to the combine and got a horribly low score but it wasn't as bad as the 6 that was being reported. He took it again at the combine and got a 16. Still a pretty bad score but definitely not a 6. Clayton did go on to discount the first test saying that the true wunderlic is a timed test. Some players screw around the first time they take it and thus post abysmal scores.
