Hm. JPP and Murphey clubbing instead of training for the combine is okay, but Sapp wants to be as prepared as possible, so he studies for the Wonderlic, and all we can do in response is make fun of him? Not very kind of us. We ought to commend him for his hard work. He's not overlooking any aspect of the Combine. How is this any different from interview coaching or strength training?
I've seen mock Wonderlics; they're essentially stripped-down IQ tests, which are easy to manipulate. I'm not terribly smart (cf. my "gm for a day thread"
) but I regularly score 150 + on standard IQ tests because I've learned how to play the system (and no, not the internet tests--real ones). Props to Sapp for taking the initiative to not only get his 40 time down, but also to sharpen his mind and take seriously the rigors of an NFL career.
Oh, and no way Ghee runs a 4.3. I'm guessing he's a 4.45 kind of guy, which, incidentally, is about where I'd put Matthews. That said, I have a suspicion that we'll see some blazing fast 40 times this year, with Ford and Holliday leading the way. Should be quite the show.
