Michael Vick’s starting job is in trouble, according to none other than Michael Vick himself.

Eagles QB acknowledged that he may be headed to the bench following Sunday’s disappointing loss to the Falcons.

Although Andy Reid claimed that every member of the team would be evaluated, Vick revealed the longtime Eagles coach will consider benching the 4-time Pro Bowl QB in favor of rookie Nick Foles.

“Obviously, he’s pondering making a change at the QB position,” Vick recounted. “The thing I do know, and I may go watch the film and I’ll evaluate myself, is that I’m giving us each opportunity to win.”

Vick completed 21 of 35 passes for 191 yards and a touchdown, playing a turnover-free game for just the 2nd time this season.

But Vick, who signed a 6-year deal worth $100 million before last season, failed to beat his former team as the Eagles fell to 3-4 this season.

On Sunday, Vick said: “Whatever decision Coach makes, I support it. The thing I know is, I am giving it everything I have got out there when I step on the field. Deep down, as long as I know I’m doing that, giving it everything that is all I am able to ask out of myself.” But, league sources recounted that Vick doesn’t believe he deserves to be benched and is upset at the idea of it. The sources asserted that supporting Reid’s decision should not be confused with happily accepting a decision to start Foles. Baseball odds

Rain-soaked Eagles fans fled for the exits well before the Falcons put the finishes on their 30-17 win. The Eagles lost after a bye for the 1st time in 14 games under Reid since 1999.

“That was an embarrassing performance,” Reid claimed. “I’m stating the obvious. We need to get better. I need to do a better job. This is fixable. We have got the talent.”

Reid expounded the Eagles have no need for a new voice — meaning, a new head coach.

“No, I am going to keep doing that,” he revealed.

The Eagles lost for the 1st time since Todd Bowles replaced embattled Juan Castillo as defensive coordinator, a sign that personnel, as much as play-calling, is at fault.

Castillo’s defense allowed 18.5 points per game, excluding 2 TD returns against the offense. Bowles’ defense allowed 21 points in the first 24 minutes and could not make a stop till the 4th quarter. One fan held a tell-tale sign that read, “Fire Castillo Again?”

The Philadelphia Eagles’ backup quarterbacks are Nick Foles, a rookie out of the University of Arizona, and 6th-year veteran Trent Edwards. Neither has thrown a pass this season.

Edwards has not played in an NFL game since 2010, when he started 2 games for the Buffalo Bills and one for the Jacksonville Jaguars. From 2007-10, he played 34 games and made 32 starts for the Bills. For his career, he is 14-19 as a starter. He’s completed 60.5 percent of his passes for 6,019 yards, and he’s thrown 26 touchdown passes and 30 interceptions.
