All I was saying is you can't judge a guy's character based off an SAT or Wonderlic score. Maurice Clarett got a 20 on the wonderlic. Adrian Peterson got an 18. Does this mean Clarett is smarter, therefore makes better decisions?

The less intelligent guys are more likely to make boneheaded decisions, perhaps. But what is the measure of intelligence? The aptitude tests that are given to college athletes don't measure decision making abilities, or street smarts. It measures book smarts. And running back is one of the few positions in the NFL where a guy without much book smarts can be successful, because it's so instinctive.

You can't assume a guy will have a character problem when he has never gotten in trouble with the law. There's no precedent.
I'm not racist you tard. That is the end this debate.
