NEW ORLEANS -- There was no ambiguity this week. Andy Reid was asked after the Eagles' 28-13 loss to the Saints if Michael Vick will be his starting quarterback next week against the Cowboys.

"Michael Vick will be the quarterback," Reid said.

But Vick has a different controversy on his hands this week. His brother, Marcus Vick, wrote on Twitter: “Please trade my brother. We requesting out of Philly!!!! Please please please.” Marcus also criticized the Eagles' offensive line.

"I'm not aware of that," Vick said. "That's something that I'm really going to have to address once I leave here."

Vick went on to support his teammates. He said, "I love each and every guy in that locker room."

"If I could make every play right, I would," Vick said. "I know they would do the same. So that's certainly not the case."

On Vick's interception that was returned for a touchdown, both Reid and Vick said they thought tight end Brent Celek was held.
