Default Tebow posts below average 'Wonderlic' score

Tebow posts below average 'Wonderlic' score:

Wow Bradford with a 36

The question is do you really think it makes a difference?

Former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow impressed the NFL coaches and scouts with his workouts at the NFL Combine two weeks ago. But he apparently didn't fare as well in the cerebral part of the Combine — the notorious Wonderlic intelligence test.
According to NFL sources, Tebow scored slightly below the quarterback average on the test, posting a score of 22. Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford scored a 36 on the test, while Texas quarterback Colt McCoy had a 25.

The average score for a QB is 20.

Tebow got a 22.

How is that below average?

Among current starting quarterbacks in the NFL, the average score on the Wonderlic was 30.

To put those scores in perspective, the Post compared Wonderlic numbers of run-of-the-mill NFL quarterbacks such as Alex Smith (40) and Matt Leinart (35) to those of Pro Football Hall of Famers Dan Marino and Jim Kelly (both 15) and an established star such as Donovan McNabb (14)

No, he's still as bad an NFL prospect as he was before he took the test.
