Tim Tebow is a Great, Big Dummy — Kidding

Mar 11, 2010

ESPN is reporting that Tim Tebow scored a 22 on the Wonderlic test. An average score for a quarterback is 24. While there isn’t a true correlation between a Wonderlic score and performance on the field, it’s one more hurdle that Tebow is facing as he tries to make the transition to NFL quarterback. 

If it were his only deficiency it would be easy to overlook. However, Tebow’s footwork and delivery are also issues.  Tebow has been working to improve those shortcomings. The results will be on display next week during his pro day.

I wouldn’t read too far into this test. Tebow did well in school, and has displayed tremendous leadership on and off the field. He is very gifted physically and has all the intangibles needed to succeed at the next level.

    I know. I’m just teasing. The test doesn’t even mean you’re not smart. Besides he scored right around the average for qbs.
