    John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Saturday, Feb. 25 a rumor that Texas QB Vince Young had scored a six on the Wonderlic test sent shock waves through the NFL Combine. Sunday, Feb. 26, the Combine said the test score of six that was being reported by some media outlets was false. Young took the test again and scored 16. According to Young's agent, Major Adams, the Sunday test was administered by Jeff Foster, executive director of National Scouting Combine.

    "The combine officials assured us that score (six) was false and that the accurate score will be known when the combine results are given to each team," Adams said.

    Wonderlic scores are supposed to be confidential and are never confirmed publicly by the NFL, because they are included in Combine results given to teams after the Combine, scores leak out. Prospects can take the Wonderlic tests as many times as they want. While Young's Wonderlic tests created a huge controversy, he was busy interviewing with different teams.

    So the 6 was false but he took the test again, what does that mean?

    That's the part I don't get. If there was confusion, why not simply state what the correct score was? Taking it again, to me, seems to inforce the possibility that that was actually his initial score.

    My understanding (based on the explanation on NFLDraftCountdown) is that the test somehow wasn't "scored properly" so they let Vince take it again and he got a 16.

    The story is complete BS. Something fishy is going on. From I can tell, the reports that he got a 6 are accurate, but there appeared to be a consensus that the 6 score was not credible for some reason.

    What I find absolutely hilarious about this story is the cover story.

    "Oh no. Vince didn't get a 6. He isn't that dumb. When he took it the second time, he showed he wasn't that stupid. He got a 16."

    A 16?

    I guess that is better than a 6 and shows that you won't choke on your own tongue and drool. But 16? That's still borderline ********.

    The end game of this is clear: Vince Young is stupid.

    Tremendous athlete, but nobody had him pegged as an intelligent guy. All I had to do was hear one of his interviews to come to that conclusion.

    Forrest Gump didn't have to know a playbook, read a defense, and call audibles. He was a kick returner and a wide reciever if I recall correctly.

    That's what Vince will be doing.

    But you got to admit it is slightly humorous to pose such a defense: "No, he isn't completely ********, only partly ********."

    That's a funny defense, if you ask me.

    that would reflect a poor understanding of testing. if you take the same test twice, duh, you improve.

    It amazes me on how many people jump the gun and say OMG he scored low he is stupid! Have you seen some of the questions on those tests? If you dont watch the news and keep up with things outside of football you will miss quite a few questions.

    I wouldnt put to much stock in a wonderlic score anyway. If I recall the highest wonderlic score was by a kicker. So that means he is a rocket scientist and should be an elite QB. Or it means he has a hell of a lot more free time to read a paper or watch the news then a QB who is studying film and working on his craft.

    What? It isn't a test of knowledge.

    It isnt an "IQ" test. Its IQ mixed with overall knowledge of events etc. So labeling someone stupid because of a bad test result is ignorant.

    I thought the test dealt with how you logically solve problems. I do not believe it is a current events test.

    Payton Manning said the questions are like - All men are fat, Jim is a man, is Jim fat?

    It's logic not current events.

    You can take the test as many times as you want. It sounds like there was an error with his so they let him take it again immediately.

    I personally don't think it matters one little bit. I don't care if he can tell me the smallest number in a mathematical sequence of numbers. I wanna know if he knows his reads. To me, the Wonderlic is worthless because it isn't about football.

    I believe it was last year they gave an example of some questions from the wonderlic and a couple were not logic questions. One I think was about a law/law firm's current situation. I could be wrong.

    Maybe he just didnt eat his Wheaties :laugh1:
