  • I loved it when Gruden asked Cam for an example of a play call from Auburn and he was like, "uhh you're putting me on the spot!"

    /what a dumbass
  • Had to stop at the bungled gun (!) metaphor.

    ...this is going to be a shame...
  • Farker has bust written right on his forehead. And he apparently raided Ken's wardrobe from Real Genius.
  • Would it be wrong to wish unspeakable pain and agony on this worthless fark?
  • This doesn't bother me all that much. He'll learn the play calls with practice. And if he doesn't? Dumb 'em down if you need to. Or just go all pickup game style and draw a play in the dirt every time. I don't care. If the guy can play, that's all that matters. The playcalling situation will end up figured out before he plays a game. Just remember, you don't have to be smart to be a good QB. There were plenty of QBs with questionable intelligence that ended up being great.
  • To put it simply. Im not impressed. Very glad my team doesnt need a QB this year.
  • Wait, Jon Gruden is smarter than Cam? Where's the Newsflash tag?

    ;)

  • Your "mental chamber"? Good luck with that, Cam.
  • In the past, you could be pretty dumb and succeed at QB. These days, with the defense on helmet mike, etc, you need more of a brain.

    Yeah, that'll work really well against an NFL defense. "Hey o-line, you guys just block somebody. Everybody else just run around. I sure hope they don't blitz."

    You don't have to be smart, look at Terry Bradshaw. You do have to be able to grasp offensive and defensive schemes though, without drooling on yourself.

    I'm trying to think of one in the last 10 years, and I'm drawing a blank. Most of the dumb guys these days end up being busts.

    NFL offenses are much more cerebral and sophisticated than they were in Bradshaw's day (as well as Marino's day).

    No way Jerry Jones takes this clown. The memory of Quincy Carter still lingers strongly.

    Terry who? I would like to think that he is good at playing dumb - But you can never be sure with him. BTW - Roger Staubach - smart QB (the naval academy doesn't graduate people like me ) and he was really not that great
  • Gruden certainly makes it seem hard, or at least that there's a lot more going on than it looks like on tv... a complex and completely fabricated rapid-fire language, that you then have to re-learn when you change teams... while 300+# guys try as hard as they can to tear you in two. (At least until they change the rules to the point of "just wear flags".)

    CCCarnie: Just remember, you don't have to be smart to be a good QB.


    No, you don't have to be intellectual, or book-smart, or conversationally quick, maybe. But I'm willing to bet you have to be pretty football-smart to make it as an NFL QB. This guy couldn't think of a single play he called himself, while sitting comfortably in an interview room, forget a field with defenders and 50,000 screaming fans, and the entire team ran on (apparently... can't say I've watched one of their games) a giant sign with a number on it held on the sidelines.

    This is supposed to work against an NFL defense? Even more fundamentally, how is he supposed to lead / motivate / manage / coalesce his offense? Finally, it seems his entire life to this point has been surrounded and coddled by people blowing smoke up his skirt... notice how he fell (even further-) apart when Gruden asked him about criticism?

    The real mystery is, given what seems to have been revealed in this basic, friendly interaction, why in the fark would his agents/protectors let him out of a deep, dark, well-sealed cave before draft day? What good could possibly have come from letting him interview? "It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool...."

    He's talking about Jerry Richardson.

    Yup. Completely different mental game these days.
  • KingKauff: Eli Manning


    Eli's a smart guy. Try again.

    Wonderlic scores for the NFL's projected starting quarterbacks:
    1. Ryan Fitzpatrick 48
    2. Alex Smith 40
    3. Eli Manning 39
    4. Matt Stafford 38
    5. Tony Romo 37
    6. Aaron Rodgers 35
    6. Matt Leinart 35
    8. Tom Brady 33
    9. Matt Ryan 32
    10. Matt Schaub 31

    From my own link, I see Rapesliberger is a 25 and Favre is a 22. It's possible that Newton could work out with a 21 score I suppose, but he's really at the bottom end of the curve. Even JaMarcus f*cking Russell scored a 24.
