11:08 AM ET 10.23 | Michael Vick is under a lot of scrutiny in Philadelphia these days. The veteran quarterback has shouldered much of the blame for the team's struggles this season, with more than a few wondering if he could get benched. Vick said this week that he and coach Andy Reid discussed the issue this week during the team's bye. Vick will remain the starter, and he expressed confidence that he would remain in that role.

Don't they always get a vote of confidence in the media before they get canned? Something like "Kolb is my QB and he will be the starter this whole season"

Not too sure about his boss, though.

I hope he keeps playing. I just can't get enough of hearing "turnover machine" from the talking heads.

as bad of a person as Vick is, he manages to be an even worse QB

Well this should be great news for the Boys, Skins and Giants

Yes. There was a bare chance that Reid could re-tool the offense around the backup QB during the bye week. If he tried that, and it didn't work, he would be fired for sure. He seems to think the better chance is to roll the dice with Vick, hope for the best.

Every week it's the same article

Andy: Michael, I'm still going to let you be my quarterback.

Mike: Andrew, I'm still going to let you be my coach.

You beat me to it.

Vick's job is safe for now.

Read: We have no other options at this point.

If I were a QB and heard those words, I would start packing my bags and putting my house up for sale. Killer words 'safe for now'.

Yeah, we feel pretty good about it.
