Michael Vick will be the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles when they hit the road for a Monday Night Football game against the New Orleans Saints in a must win game for both teams. But it may turn out to be more than a must win game, as it may also be a must win performance from Vick if he plans to keep his starting quarterback job past this game.
If the Eagles lose, Vick may wind up benched.
Even if they win, he had better hope that he plays one hell of a game.
Eagles’ head coach Andy Reid has gone back and forth with this decision. He knows that his job is also on the line, only he is not guaranteed the same amount of money as Vick is if he is replaced. Reid needs to win, and still believes that Vick gives him the best chance at picking up a much needed victory against the disappointing Saints on Monday night.
It just can no longer be said that he strongly believes it to be true. His faith in Vick appears to seemingly wane more and more with each passing week.

There was a time not too long ago when having Mike Vick, Tony Romo or Mark Sanchez as your quarterback was considered living well in the NFL. Now it is like the sports version of marry, boff, kill.
