As if we didn't need enough talk about the quarterback situation with the Arizona Cardinals, apparently Vince Young has been pushed in the discussion. Maybe the Cardinals simply were not being intriguing enough after the Peyton Manning decision happened.

In an article discussing possible landing spots for quarterback Vince Young, apparently the Arizona Cardinals are a team that should be interested, according to Gregg Rosenthal from nfl.com.

Now, at this point...why? Most of us can understand why the team pursued Peyton Manning -- it is Peyton Manning. But after paying Kevin Kolb $7 million and with John Skelton having shown to more than just a capable backup, why in the world would the Cardinals look at Vince Young?

Of course, Rosenthal was doing what he believes the Cardinals are doing with their quarterbacks -- "Throw it against the wall and see what sticks."

We know that the Cardinals aren't doing that.

Matt Leinart was supposed be the guy, but wasn't. Derek Anderson just happened to be the guy there after that because Marc Bulger didn't get released quickly enough. Max Hall was only because Derek Anderson was Derek Anderson. The team did their homework on Kevin Kolb, but he didn't stay healthy. John Skelton wasn't even supposed to have seen time on the field at this point, but he has.

So I wouldn't exactly call what the Cardinals are doing as just chucking crap around and hoping. It may seem like it, but it certainly isn't.

As for the issue of Vince Young, would you even want him here? I don't think so. He didn't show anything special last season with the Eagles.

We know he is athletically gifted and has a knack for making plays when it counts. But another QB and another system? Let's avoid that.
