Johh Beck is rumored to be the Washington Redskins new starting quarterback. Security guards don't know who he is, and he hasn't taken a snap since 2007.

His numbers at college aren't exactly going to blow you away either. He did manage to have a solid senior year with 32 touchdowns and eight interceptions (116.3 QB rating). 

But is he really the guy you want leading your football team every week?

I'd have to say no.

With Donovan McNabb heading to the Vikings and Rex Grossman just being...Rex Grossman, the Redskins options at quarterback are pretty thin. 

The Redskins have around $26 million in cap room. More then enough to go and sign a legitimate quarterback. No, Kellen Clemens doesn't count

Vince Young and Kevin Kolb are two quarterbacks the Redskins should take a serious look at. It may appear to some people that Vince Young had a meltdown last year, but he's still a young quarterback with a lot of potential. 

Tennessee just wasn't the fit for Vince, and Jeff Fisher flat out didn't like him.

Vince needs a new team where he can start fresh and move on. 

Kevin Kolb showed flashes of brilliance last year and was the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles before he got injured.

In a game against the Redskins in Week 4, Michael Vick got injured and Kolb went 22-for-35 with 201 passing yards while throwing one touchdown and one interception. 

Kolb is now on the outside looking in for the Eagles, he wants to get traded to a team where he has a fighting chance to start and rightfully so.

The Redskins have an obvious quarterback hole that needs filling, but Beck isn't going to be the quarterback that fills it.
