TMZ Live: Are Jocks Dumber than Regular Folk?

7/26/2011 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We're not ready to say athletes are dumber than your average bear, but we were shocked at the  "Wonderlic Test" players took  ... and how poorly they performed.  Plus, networks are fighting over Anthony family interviews -- so who's worse ... the networks or the family?



(0:00) We're going three deep today -- our resident sports/politics junkie Brian McDaniel joins the fray.
(5:25) Do you have to be smarter to be a quarterback?
(8:00) The "Wonderlic Test" -- given to NFL prospects -- is impossibly ... EASY. Seriously, YOU GOTTA HEAR some of these questions.
(12:20) What are the average scores for different NFL positions?
(14:05) Gary takes SERIOUS issue with the lineman bashing.
(21:20) Jason -- our lawyer -- played college baseball ... and he turned out fine.
(26:45) A rare moment in TMZ Live history ... it's time to talk politics. Harvey plays the part of POTUS and recaps Obama's speech last night.
(28:45) Time to rip apart Obama's AND Boehner's speeches.
(30:10) Brian says ... it's all Grover Norquist's fault! Burn!
(40:30) Networks are FIGHTING over interviews with Casey Anthony and her parents. Plus, ABC's shocking statement.
(55:00) Are the Anthonys trying to profit off Caylee's death ... or just trying to pay off all those lawyer fees?
(56:02) Bold statement ... one caller said he'd miss a NASCAR race in order to boycott a Casey Anthony interview.

Gene Simmons, technically the show is sooooo scripted. I think it jumped the shark when they both got plastic surgery. The whole thing has really become stupid.

Harvey, your white shirts are almost as iconic as Steve Jobs' black turtle necks. I love how your teeth are whiter than your shirt. Nothing wrong with that, very Hollywood!

Football is war. Coaches are generals and QBs are the field marshals.

I think in the long past, they were not required to worry about education because the U>S> was not as education orientated. ut In todays times intelligence and education are expected more based on such advancement in technology. Look how retired atheletes have turned to being commentators. once the game is over they need to be able to have a money making career. They
