    Who's smarter?

    Ok, so this really isn't about intelligence so much, but about the relative speed a new QB will learn our offense well enough to execute it smoothly. Which QB is going to pick it up and execute it quicker...Brees? Schaub? Culpepper? Anyone have a clue on their Wonderlicks and what we might expect from these guys to learn a new system? I can't help but think that physical talent is great, but isn't worth much if the brain power isn't there to master the new system quickly.

    Why must this team always underachieve???

    Culpepper has the big advantage because he played in this Linehan system in Minny!

    I dont know..But if Frerrotte was able to come in here and learn it QUICKLY and perform as good as he did, then Brees should make Chambers, McMIchael, and R.Brown all pro-bowlers. Give that man the playbook TODAY!

    Culpepper knows the terminology, the offense wont be the same really, but he will have the head up in learning it

    There has been speculation that Brees is the smarter player, but Daunte already knows the Linehan system aka the "Dolphins System", so he would have the clear advantage there.

    Also it has been mentioned before that Marino scored low on the Wonderlic (a 16 i believe?) and the man was just amazing at picking apart defenses and reading a defense like no one else, so it's hard to apply the Wonderlic test to real world results.

    Schuab got a 30. Not sure what Brees or Culpepper got.

    The system isn't Linehan's anymore.
    The terminology is going to stay the same NOT the system.

    I don't see any evidence to think either Brees or Culpepper would have a problem learning.
    I've never seen any reports to Culpepper having trouble and Brees is known as being a smart Qb.
