Ok, clarification on the IQ thing, no it's not the end of the world if you're a 15-20. Dan marino was low afterall, and qb's are a lower average iq than most positions anyway. But that, combined with the rumor that he struggled drawing up plays during interviews worries me. No, it's not just that he's black.
A high iq can definitely be bad too, in alex smith's case(whose iq is supposed to be on the higher end of the scale for qb's) he tends to overthink and then run out of time to get things going. Sometimes you just need to relax and throw the damn ball.
But you can't exactly just have a nate davis mindlessly throwing the ball without knowing what's going on in the plays. Works for preseason, not so much in real games.
I was wondering his iq out of curiosity more than anything.
