The Philadelphia Eagles announced early Wednesday morning that quarterback Michael Vick will remain the starter this weekend against the New Orleans Saints. While Vick holds on to his job for week nine on Monday Night Football, he appears to be on a week-to-week basis when it comes to keeping his job.

There is no doubt that rookie signal caller Nick Foles is breathing down his neck.

Vick has struggled with turnovers all season and has been a big part of the Eagles disappointing start to the season. Not only are the turnovers killing Philly, but the accuracy of Vick has been horrendous.

Outside of the pocket, Vick has only completed 28 percent of his passes — which is the worst percentage in the NFL.

Philadelphia will get back to practice today as they prepare for their Monday night showdown. It is going to be a very important game for Vick and the Eagles, who remain in the playoff race. If the team drops to 3-5 , it could finally be the time for Vick to see the bench.
