Andy Reid: Michael Vick is starter 'right now,' but 'we'll evaluate it as we go'

Andy Reid offered a non-committal response when asked Monday if he would think about changing starting quarterbacks, giving a half-hearted endorsement of starter Michael Vick.

"Right now, we're with Michael and that's what we're doing," Reid said Monday after the Eagles' 27-6 loss at Arizona, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. "We'll evaluate it as we go."

Vick has struggled this season despite the Eagles' 2-1 start, completing 55 percent of his passes while throwing six interceptions (which leads the NFL) to just three touchdowns. He has a quarterback rating of 66.3, well below his career rating. Nick Foles, a rookie out of Arizona, is currently listed as the backup on the Eagles depth chart.

Later on his radio show, Reid later tried to clear up his earlier response, saying that Vick was the team's starter, "period."

"Michael's our quarterback, period. Michael's our quarterback," Reid said. "Listen: Does he need to get better, and do we all need to get better? Yes, and we're going to do that. So that's what we're going to work on starting Wednesday."
