Rob Carr/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid still has faith in quarterback Michael Vick after the team fell to the Cardinals 27-6 on Sunday.

“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,” Reid said on his radio show on 94WIP in Philadelphia.

Three games into the 2012 season, Vick is 69-125 with 905 yards, only three touchdowns, and has thrown six interceptions.

“Right now we’re with Michael (Vick), and that’s what we’re doing. We’ll evaluate as we go,” Reid said.

The Eagles have backup quarterback Nick Foles in the wings, but Reid hasn’t considered giving Foles more snaps in practice just yet. “No, not right now,” he said.

Vick’s quarterback rating through three games is 38.8. The Eagles next opponent will be the New York Giants on Sunday night.
