Michael Vick is still the starting quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, three sources close to the team told the Associated Press. The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because Andy Reid has yet to formally make an announcement on the lineup.
The Eagles have lost three games in a row, prompting calls for a quarterback switch. Vick went 21-for-35 passing for a mediocre 191 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Touted rookie Nick Foles would take over the offense if Vick is benched.
Fantasy Impact: Vick has cut down on his turnovers lately, but it is true that he hasn't exactly been his scintillating self on the field. Still, it's not surprising that he is ahead of a third-round draft pick in his first year in the NFL. Vick is probably the best quarterback for the Eagles right now, regardless of team's struggles.
A game against the New Orleans Saints could cure what's ailing Vick. The Saints have given up over 300 yards passing in each of their last four games, and 12 total passing touchdowns over that span.
