Reid won't commit to Vick as starter

The SportsXchange

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is looking over his shoulder, and he's not being chased by defenders.

Coach Andy Reid said he would assess his quarterbacks before determining his starter moving forward.

The Eagles fell to 3-4 on the season with a 30-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

"I'll go back and look at everything," Reid said after the game when asked whether he'd change quarterbacks. "I'm not going to sit here and make decisions right now. I'm going to go back and look at it and analyze it."

Vick entered the game with 13 of the Eagles' league-high 17 turnovers -- eight interceptions and five lost fumbles -- but he avoided giving the ball away against Atlanta. He completed 21 of 35 passes for 191 yards and a touchdown.

Asked specifically to rate Vick's performance, Reid said, "I'll take a look at the tape. There were some things he could do better."

Vick responded, "Whatever decision coach makes, I support it. The thing I know is that I'm giving it everything I got out there when I step on the field. Deep down, as long as I know I'm doing that and I'm giving it everything, then it's all I can ask out of myself. No more, no less."

For the season, Vick has completed 157 of 266 passes (59 percent) for 1,823 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions.

The Eagles' backup quarterbacks are Nick Foles, a rookie out of the University of Arizona, and sixth-year veteran Trent Edwards. Neither has thrown a pass this season.

Edwards hasn't played in an NFL game since 2010, when he started two games for the Buffalo Bills and one for the Jacksonville Jaguars. From 2007-10, he played 34 games and made 32 starts for the Bills. For his career, he is 14-19 as a starter. He's completed 60.5 percent of his passes for 6,019 yards, and he's thrown 26 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions.
