So let me get this straight. We can talk till we are blue in the face about the future of Mark Sanchez. Talk ad nauseum about the unfair treatment of Tim Tebow. Ask a thousand times about where Michael Vick is going to be taking snaps, and dub a one game wonder in Matt Flynn the most sought after quarterback going into the 2013 offseason. But we don't have time to bring up the best quarterback not in the league.The QB that would be a perfect fit for the direction that the league is going in offensively. Why is it that no one is talking about getting Vince Young ahead of all the quarterbacks that were just mentioned? In a league where teams are finding starting QB spots for Matt Cassel, Mark Sanchez, John Skelton, Kevin Kolb, and a plethora of other QBs who are below average, we really can't find a spot for Vince Young?While everyone is talking about how all Tim Tebow does is win game, Vince Young's career win-loss record is 31-19. While everyone is talking about how the league is changing offensively because of the spread option and you need a mobile quarterback, Vince averages 5.2 yards per carry. Everyone knows that Vince Young can run the Spread Option attack. Ask Pete Carroll, coach of the Seattle Seahawks how Vince does with the Spread Option. He saw it first hand while coaching USC while Vince Young was shredding the Trojans defense with the spread.Young is only 28 years old. His career stats of 57.9 %, 8,764 YDS 46 Tds, 51 INTs, are better than some of the QB's that have a starting spot in the league as we speak.Mark Sanchez just got a contract for $58 million dollars with worse career stats than Vince Young. It's going to cost the Jets $17 million to get out that deal if they don't find a trade partner in the offseason for Sanchez. You could probably sign Vince Young for a 25% of Sanchez's buyout.If the league can celebrate the rise of potential QB stars like Robert Griffin III , Colin Kaepernick & Cam Newton, then a team can find a roster spot for the QB that made their style of play acceptable in the first place. While teams like the  Jacksonville Jaguars , New York Jets , Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs, and Arizona Cardinals are contemplating their futures at the quarterback position they need to consider Vince Young very seriously. He has the size and the experience to get it done, and they know it!
