Reid further explained his thoughts that evening during his radio show on 94WIP in Philadelphia, via ESPN.
"It was the last question. I was finishing up the press conference," Reid said. "Michael's our quarterback. Period. Michael's our quarterback.
"Listen, does he need to get better? Do we all need to get better? Yes. We're all going to do that."
Vick currently ranks No. 29 in the NFL with a 66.2 passer rating. His six interceptions are tied for the league high.
Part of the problem is that Vick continues to get manhandled. He was hit 13 times against the Cardinals, not including his four rushing attempts.
"Yeah, I am (surprised he can take all the hits) because he's not that big of a guy, but he's a tough one," New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck told The Star-Ledger. "He keeps getting up and making plays, so hopefully we can have the success other teams have had against him as far as getting him on the ground."
In the end, Vick isn't going anywhere. There's some risk/reward with his style of play, but the Eagles have Super Bowl aspirations and Foles is a rookie. Vick under center gives them the best chance of realizing those goals. The Eagles need to address their protection issues regardless of who's under center.
