Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson is not among the many in Philadelphia who are losing faith in Michael Vick.
Jackson said on Mike and Mike in the Morning that he believes Vick still should be — and still is — the Eagles’ starting quarterback.
“As far as I know right now, Michael Vick is going to be the quarterback. I haven’t heard of changes or anything like that, so we’re still going with the plan,” Jackson said.
Despite talk that the Eagles need to bench the turnover-prone Vick for Nick Foles, Jackson said he doesn’t see it that way.
“You can’t ever blame it on one man,” Jackson said. “There’s been turnovers and things like that, but as far as Michael Vick and what he’s capable of doing, I think he’s still an elite quarterback.”
And Jackson said the Eagles still believe they can make some noise in the NFC.
“We expect a lot more out of ourselves,” Jackson said. “We’ve lost some games that we feel we should have won.”
The issue, however, is that some of those games they lost and should have won were lost in large part because of Vick’s turnovers. And with Vick on pace for career highs in interceptions, fumbles and fumbles lost, fewer and fewer people are left who agree with Jackson that Vick is still elite.
