Too bad. We all know a drug addict. Waste of life and at some point it is out of their control.
I hate the Wonderlic test.
Yes. It may still be a banned substance in the NFL though....they're a little slow on the uptake.
Yeah. Quincy just had an extremely fat tongue, but some ones inability to annunciate well does not mean there brain does not work well.
Quincy sucked, and he'd have sucked if he'd gotten a 50 on the Wonderlic.
And there were many rumors of him doing plenty of coke at Georgia. Don't think a little MJ was his only issue.
It just shows the Wonderlic doesn't measure intelligence if that Melvin could score a 30. He was answer the iron stupid.
Looks like a "15" will get you a Hall of Fame career and millions as an analyst.
The Wonderlic is just one measure of focused intelligence. Just one. Troy was just a better football player. A difference of one point doesn't mean Quincy was smarter. It means he scored better on the test, but their scores were comparable. Troy obviously applied himself better. This to me means that Quincy had the brains to apply himself, but didn't. Probably another "athletic" guy who thought that his physical tools could overcome hard work.
Quincy's biggest problem was that he couldn't even throw a spiral half the time. To make matters worse he wasn't really a very good running QB either.
Romo score gets devalued by Garret's brain farted score being just the same. Goes to show you they don't mean squat. Give me Brett's Favre 22 over Blaine Gabberts 42 all day long
Kinda undercutting your point there: If they were smart, they wouldn't be downloading stuff off of iTunes in the first place.....
If I put 500 Quincy Carters in a room randomly answering Wonderlic tests 24 hours per day, the heat death of the universe would arrive before that clown scored a 30.
Have you seen example Wonderlic questions before? That test is a joke, I would not put much into Wonderlic results.
It's basic things you should be able to answer by the time you are a freshman in high school.
I will never understand how Mo Claiborne scored a 4 on this test... A 4!
Quincy Carter - High Wonderlich score, couldn't throw a spiral to save his life.
History will always be rewritten about that period because of him. He was nothing but a back-up. The best of a crop of quarterbacks that should never have taken the field. And a lightning rod which divided the team's fans because hope overrules what you are seeing on the field.
I will never forget Dale relating the story here about the route trees and Bruce Coslet introducing new additions to those. Quincy could not get it and begged Galloway and the rest of the receivers to just run the routes they normally did and not the new reads added.
During practice Coslet came down on the receivers not doing it correctly.
Carter never said a word that he had them do it the old way. He through them under the bus.
Emmitt and Galloway met him after practice and tore him a new one.
The very next game Carter threw four picks and was benched for Hutch. It was the Az game in 2002. You may remember Carter arguing vehemently with Jerry Jones on the sidelines.
Dale - a famous poster and mod here - was doing an internship with Spagnola and the team and knew this first hand.
No matter what, that soured me on Quincy, whom I defended when he was picked and up until that episode.
Character means something. Quincy was lacking and thus relied on drugs to prop up his flagging ego.
I have often wondered why the NFL doesn't abandon the Wonderlich for a test that assesses football smarts instead.
That test is not a joke. With the timing requirements it requires very fast cognitive and analytical skills. You have to be able to digest the information quickly and come up with the right answer.
It's why it's important for quarterbacks, IMO. Reading defenses, learning offenses, and digesting a lot of information very quickly.
He didn't even do it. He just handed it in because he knew he was going top 10 regardless.
You forgot Drunk.
Man. Yes you are right. How could I forget the best part!
