Not taking anything away from the guy, but you don't even need your fibula at all to walk. I know this because I have no fibula in my left leg. Most of your body weight and stress is put on your femur(thigh bone), tibia(shin bone), feet, and joints(knee/ankle). So its not an amazing feat that he was still playing, especially since it was a fracture, which isn't a full break. Not to mention any pain killers he may have taken or wraps he put on. Not wanting to play the role of Debbie the Downer though. Its still a pretty cool story.

He's referring to the wonderlic test. Vince Young totally bombed that stupid test, and Alex Smith did quite well on it. Yet Alex Smith had a poor rookie season, and Vince Young has a great one. He's not really saying Vince Young is a great decision maker. Just that book smart and football smart don't always go hand in hand, which I think most of us can agree with. But I'm not sure if the OP was asking who had the most football smarts in the NFL, or who had the highest GPA in college.
Who is the fastest player in the NFL?
Steve Smith - Just his football speed, nibleness, and the fact he needs to be triple covered make me lean towards him. Just my opinion, tho, as I know is pure speed, he's not the fastest.
Who is the Strongest player in the NFL?
Larry Allen - He seems to be the popular pick.
Who is the most intimidating player in the NFL?
Champ Bailey - Not the most initimidating looking, but how many QB's are comfortable throwing to his side of the field?
Who is the smartest player in the NFL?
Peyton Manning - He knows that offense inside and out, and calls audibles at ease. His play on the field shows that.
Who is the toughest player in the NFL?
Steve McNair - I know Brett Favre is the Ironman and has the most consecutive starts for a QB, but watching Steve play in Tennessee and carry that team while often injured, I was obligated to put him.
Who is the Mr.Clutch in the NFL?
Andre Caldwell... Not really. Tom Brady/Adam Vinatieri - Both should share this, cuz without either of these two players at the end of those Super Bowls, they wouldn't have won.
Who is the biggest playmaker in the NFL?
LaDanian Tomlinson - NFL rushing TD record. League MVP. Need I say more?
