Is that like filling in your name wrong or something? I think that is terrible isn't it?

If Vince Young was a coach, he'd be worse than Wanstedt on his worst day.

I think you get a 6 if your register to take the test. You don't have to take it, just register,,,,,,,,,,,his agent must have done it for him,,,,what a dope

Contrary to popular belief you don't get any points just for putting your name on there.

But a 6 is bad. Very bad. On the SAT you get 400 points just for putting your name on the test, so scoring a 6 on the wonderlic I like to say is equivalent to scoring a 500 on the SAT.

Very true. Here's another way to look at it. According to ESPN, Learning Disabled Frank Gore (diagnosed as a teenager) scored a 6 last year.

No filling out your name doesnt give you any points, but YES a 6 is absolutey pathetic

Do you get marked off for wrong answers or just scored based on right answers?

Scored on right ones

There are 50 questions if you get 40 right you score a 40, 30 right you score a 30

Anyway the NFL has come out and said the test results reported are false, they let him retake it and he got a 16, and plans to take it once more and hopes to score in the mid 20's

I don't know about that. If so, and it's multiple choice, 12 out of 50 (25%) is what would expected if one answered "c" (or "a". "b", or "d") all the way down the page.

I agree you should only take it once and thats it.

How can you take it more than once? Shouldn't he have been prepared the first time? Everyone knows you have to take that test at the combine, he should have been prepared

It's getting 6 right out of 50 questions, where the first question is what is the 9th month of the year.

Young should have been more prepared. If a player can run the 40 more than once, though, why can't he take the Wonderlic test more than once?

Completely different, physical test vs. mental test.

I'm just saying that there are factors that could alter each and warrant a retake. Before I go further, can any player retest or did Young get a special exemption from the NFL? If it's the latter, then I agree that he shouldn't be allowed to retake the test.

16 is still horrible. He could have bubbled in "B" all the way down and I bet 16 of the answers were "B".

Not sure.

All the players should get one shot only IMO. If the test is designed to measure compentency than their shouldn't be a need for any second thoughts.

Thanks anyway, I'll try to look it up. I just didn't want to start a debate and then find out we were in agreement :D

I'm pretty sure a door knob can't fill out a scantron, so its quite a bit higher.

Here is a link: http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/5353378 if you scroll down, they have a fake wonderlic type test that you can take and score yourself on. I'm sure we can do better then 6....and if not, who cares!!!! we're not trying to QB in the NFL....but it's fun to take anyway!!!

Not according to ESPN, they said the 16 was the 2nd time around.

You can take the test 3 times I believe

The NFL has stated he never scored a 6 btw everyone is overlooking that

Would you wanna keep a 6 as your best score? :lol:

IMO they should only let them take it once.

The guy from the NFL on SC just said he took it once, got a 6, took it again and got a 16, and would probably take it yet again.

I also posted a separate link where the Houston Texans coach also stated as much that the first score was not true, but the Young haters didn't care and ran with their comments anyway.

16 is not very good either. I test a 23 year old girl the other day with 14 queestions and she got 14 right. She took 10 minutes to do it

Everyone's entitled to their opinion. You act like a 16 is SO much better.
