Michael Vick Still Eagles Starter

Doug Benc

But really, who gives a crap? With the Saints defense playing this terribly, either Eagles quarterback will most likely carve them up.

The Philadelphia Eagles have decided not to make a change at quarterback, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, and Michael Vick will remain the starter when they take on the Saints one week from now on Monday Night Football.

Of course that could all change later this week. Eagles head coach Andy Reid has two days to decide whether he'd rather test rookie quarterback Nick Folse, when practice resumes Thursday.

But McLane thinks there are too many good reasons to stick with Vick:

The argument for staying the course is manifold, although its rests primarily on the following: 1. Vick is not the chief reason for the Eagles' three-game losing streak. 2. The offensive line, which is arguably the No. 1 reason for the struggles, would make it nearly impossible for an immobile Foles to perform. 3. Having a rookie make his first career start on the road in prime time would be unwise.

Normally, this would be a crucial decision affecting how the Saints prepare for their Week 9 Monday night matchup. But really, who gives a crap? With the Saints defense playing this terribly, either quarterback will most likely carve them up.
