    Just to keep things in perspective. Marino scored a 16. Just in case this thread was headed in the direction that I think it is.

    Well said, Sir. I would probably score higher on that test but can I do any of the following?

    a) throw a football accurately?
    b) read a defence, pre-snap?
    c) work out the coverage while 4-7 men are coming towards me, intent on killing me?
    c) avoid the pass rush?
    d) motivate 10 adrenaline-fuelled, exhausted, men to work harder, when down by 6 points with 2 minutes to go?

    Something tells me that I won't hear my name being called in this year's draft.

    Are you suggesting a racist bent to posts? I think most people are well beyond that.

    It didn't even occur to me that I should refrain from poking fun at these guys for being dumb athletes because they are black. I suppose that would be a form of racism too - not "calling the kettle black" as it were.

    But yes, for the record, I've always felt Marino was dumb as a post as well - good arm, but never really adapted as a football player - always expecting others to adapt to his system - and yelling at them if they faltered.

    No, I am way above ever trying to play the race card. I'm suggesting that alot of people look at a test as stupid as the wonderlic and automatically assume he won't be a good football player because he scored low on it. As far as Marino, he may have played for a rival but he is probably one of the top 3 greatest qbs of all time.
