It's such a sad waste of talent - after the Rose Bowl victory over Southern Cal I thought he would be an outstanding NFL quarterback with a decent shot at being a Hall of Famer. (Yes, I was wrong about that).

With all due respect, he was a Pro Bowler...so he was pretty dang good. But his mental issues got in his way. I hope he gets some help because he means well

The TMZ footage had an officer politely try to give him a field sobriety test on his first DWI. He looked like he would have passed it but half way through he was like "i don't want to play no games man" and basically asked to go to jail. Brilliant.

And some people are just star athletes at top tier football schools who get enrolled in fake classes and don’t have to actually do school work.

Google sample wonderlic questions. A 6th grader should be able to score higher than a 6 on that test.

Great athleticism must be matched with intelligence to be successful. Young has always been missing one of the elements.

If it makes a profit, he obviously has nothing to do with running it.

Read somewhere that a score of 25 was the lowest score for any regular starting QB since the initiation of the Wunderlic test was instituted. Not sure what score Young might have received; Jackson of the Raven scored an 11 last year so it should be interesting to see if he can be more than a running QB who settles in to read defenses and be a complete NFL starting QB.
