And they are keeping the wonderlic

I guess my whole issue isn't with changing the test, it's changing it to be more "equal", which we still don't know wtf they mean.


You don't even know what they mean but you know it pisses you off.

I always thought the intelligence test should include football questions, to gauge one's knowlege of the field they're entering. I'm surprised it doesn't.

It could be a simple as:

"A defenseless player is defined as:"

or as complex as

"Describe the situation in which a one point safety may be awarded."

Show a formation and a defense and ask them what the proper read would be for their position. Do this x 30 times or so.

It doesn't have to be all about football, but there should be SOME football in it.

While I agree with that, that's not what the test is for, right? I always thought it was to basically gauge their general intelligence, as in actual smarts instead of "football smarts." Knowing when a one-point safety is awarded or how an OLB should react to a certain formation is what they scout for, not what they use the Wonderlic for.
