Another rough and tattered showing by the Philadelphia Eagles offense on Monday night will surely lead to more questions about Michael Vick, right?

The Eagles lost 28-13 to the New Orleans Saints and were woeful in the red zone with Saints cornerback Patrick Robinson returning an interception 99 yards for a touchdown.

But Andy Reid, the man in charge, is not ready to go to the bullpen yet.

"Michael Vick will be the quarterback," Reid said, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The alternative for the Eagles is rookie Nick Foles and turning to him would be a drastic measure. Don’t discount the real possibility it happens soon, though.
