Eagles head coach Andy Reid, while appearing on radio show today, mentioned that Michael Vick is not in danger of being replaced as the team’s starting quarterback, via Jeff McLane.
Reid reportedly stated that Vick was his starter, period.
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has done his fair share of turning the ball over the season. So far, Vick has turned the ball over a whopping nine times and wile Vick hasn’t looked impressive at all this season, it sounds as though Eagles head coach Andy Reid will stick with his quarterback, for now.
Reid mentioned that “right now we’re with Michael,” but also added that they will “evaluate it as we go” when he was asked whether or not he was considering a possible quarterback change, per Geoff Mosher.
While Reid’s statement says Vick is the Eagles starter, he also subtly says he needs to step his game up or else changes could be coming. Vick’s decision making so far this season has been poor, as he has racked up six interceptions in three games. Next week, Vick will have to be careful as he faces a New York Giants defense that is very capable of getting after the quarterback. On top of that, Nick Foles has been very impressive to this point and could see some playing time if Vick’s struggles and turnover issues persist.
