Howie Roseman: We’re all in with Michael Vick

A meeting with Robert Griffin III and rumored interest in Ryan Tannehill and Peyton Manning have raised some suspicion that the Eagles are in the market for a new starting quarterback.

In a roundtable session with reporters on Thursday, General manager Howie Roseman addressed that as well as the related topic of their satisfaction with their current quarterback. According to Roseman, there’s no change on the horizon under center.

“We have so much confidence in Michael Vick leading our team,” Roseman said, via the team’s website. “The way that he works and the determination he has, we’re all in with Michael. Michael is still a young quarterback. He looks great to me. He’s healthy and he’s determined. We feel very lucky to have him as our franchise quarterback.”

This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard the Eagles say that Vick is the only quarterback they want to lead them in 2012. Given what it would cost to move up to the top of the draft and the lack of another viable starting option on the roster, it doesn’t really make much sense for them to say anything else. Whether that means they ignore the position through the draft is a different question, however.

It wouldn’t be surprising at all to see the Eagles take a quarterback they think can develop over the next year or two. Mike Kafka and Trent Edwards aren’t players locked into roster spots, so there’s room for a young quarterback in Philly.

  1. And shanahan was all in on beck and Grossman last year as well. I love how Vick is the eagles qb cuz they will never win anything with him there.

  2. very well said by rosemen, thats what friends are for to have your back & be supportive, just like a true road dogg!! oops my bad

  3. The Eagles are stuck with Vick now, for the forseeable future, or else they’d be seen as giving up on him and his “rehabilitation”. That was the deal with whatever team signed him right off the suspension being terminated. Jolly (not so much) fat man Andy became his guardian, and together they will circle the drain until they are all gone.

    If he played against the Skins 17 games he would go 17-0.

    You do remember the 6 tds vs your team in “The Game of The Century” – Right?

  5. You do understand that your name is sadskinsfan right? Like, that is what you personnaly chose to represent you on this website. Just throwing that out there.

  6. Way to make a gambling reference about a guy who went to prison for basically illegal gambling.

  7. All I have to say is that you same LOSERS were saying it would be so easy to win in the playoffs without Vick while in Atlanta, and Matt Ryan has been the starter for 5 seasons now and still the last playoff winning qb there is Vick 🙂

  8. @dogluverssuck and as well the eagles won two more games then the skins with arguably the best roster on paper in the nfl. so that great qb Vick managed two more wins than beck and rex haha. and look at the weapons he has. skins got nada

    All I have to say is that you same LOSERS were saying it would be so easy to win in the playoffs without Donovan in Philly, and Michael Vick has been the starter for two seasons now and still the last playoff winning qb there is Donovan. (avoids using lame smiley face, unlike some people).

  10. Yet another reason I will have the pleasure of going to Metlife next week and seeing our newest 1 of 4 Super bowl Trophy.

    Keep Vick by week 17 he will be on the bench with and the G-Men will win big

    I love how Eagles haters make predictions of the team “never winning anything.” Saying any sports team “won’t ever win” is a comment worthy of a two year old.

  12. On the other hand, what is up with the Eagles’ front office and coaching staff with the phrase “all in?”

    “That kid was all in”—Andy Reid, 2011

    “We’re all in”–Howie Roseman, 2011

    “We’re all in with Michael Vick”–Roseman, 2012

    What are you really telling us…that you WEREN’T “all in” from 1999-present?

  13. The eagles are”all in”??? Does this franchise want to be the New York Giants our what???? Jealousy is a terrible thing!!

    Bunch of LOSERS.

  14. @sadskinsfan: Exactly , the Skins have NO weapons and by the time this year rolls around you MIGHT have one . The Eagles had possibly the most disappointing year in the franchises history and we still finished second in the division , and just like last year you’ll finish the 2012/2013 season in the NFC East basement . … Come back with your no super bowls comments , but just remember that your team hasn’t even won one playoff game this millennium

  15. The EMPTY TROPHY CASE CLAN at its best right here. Since we’re giving history lessons, lets talk about the Giants. Won it in 2007, then went 12-4 before dumba@@ shot himself. We will come out strong again and dominate all of you losers.

    – 2 in the last 5 rings
    – best QB in the NFC East
    – most durable QB in the NFL
    – best 4th quarter QB in the NFL
    -no WRs that are going to self-inflict bullets

    GGGGGGGGGGGGGGMEN!!!!

  16. Ggggggg gay men. Skins smashed u guys twice this year, so get off your high horse and realize a fluke when u see one. You got smashed twice by a team with Grossman and beck at the helm.

  17. Eagles do not need a qb. Only idiots, dog-lovers and racists say Thais dumb stuff. Qb’s don’t win alone. If it was all about the qb, Peyton manning would have more than one sb in 14 years. Get a life haters

  18. “Michael is still a young quarterback.”

    “Madonna is a nubile hottie!”

    “Don Rickles is a fresh young comedian!”

    “This kid Methuselah will start at left guard.”

  19. Congratulations once again pathetic skins fans on your 2 wins against Nyg this year. I’m sure people will remeber those wins and not the Giants winning the S bowl 10 years from now. Memo to the East: Giants are the only team that will win the SB in the next 8 years because #1 we have a HOF qb in the prime of his career and U don’t.#2 Jerry Reese is a far better GM then yours!!! #3 The New York Football Giants are not owned by Jerry Jones/Dan Synder and do not think mike Vick can last 16 games let alone 10. That 5th Super Bowl is coming Giants fans and there is nothing the rest of the east can do about it.

  20. @sadskinsfan: when is the last time you seen the playoffs? Better yet when is the last time you seen the super bowl? Yeah the Eagles haven’t won a super bowl yet but they have easily been one if not the most dominate team in the NFC. 5 NFC Championships and 1 Super Bowl appereances since 2001.

    For the record I’m a diehard packer fan. I’m just calling it how I see it.

  21. With the mention of Tannehill and Manning……

    Imagine how different this whole off season and draft would look if the Eagles had held onto Kevin Kolb last year…

    Not only from the Arizona point of view with the QB situation…. but we would not have had Vince Young and the “Dream Team” quote …. Philly would have the Aaron Rodgers go to QB on the bench if Kolb was still there…. Kolb and the concussion?… would anyone really know who Skelton is?… it goes on and on and on….

  22. My god the losers on this website. These fans of other teams are still up to the same crap they have been for many years. Trolling message boards about other teams just to use the same, worn out comments like “Dream Team” or “Stay Classy.” Really sh*tstains? Seriously? Nothing better to do? Crawl out of mommy’s basement and make an attempt to become a productive member of society.
