|Vick's the starter for at least another week. (US Presswire)|
It's not completely surprising though Vick admitted after Sunday's loss to the Falcons that coach Andy Reid was "obviously" thinking about making a change, and that whatever Reid decided, Vick would support. But the logistics of such a move would've been tough to pull off -- the alternative, Nick Foles, is a rookie with no experience beyond the preseason.
More than that, Vick isn't the only person playing for his job. Reid is, too. Team chairman Jeffrey Lurie made that clear before the season, when he said last year's 8-8 record was "unacceptable." Knowing that, Lurie can't be happy about the Eagles currently sitting at 3-4 with questions on both sides of the ball.
The great irony, of course, is that with all the speculation that this was the week that Vick would land on the bench, he had finally started to take care of the football and make better decisions. But unlike defensive coordinator Juan Castillo -- whom Reid fired before the team's Week 8 bye though the defense wasn't the Eagles' biggest liability -- Vick remains atop the depth chart.
For how long is another matter entirely.
