Mike Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles have been struggling to fulfill lofty expectations so far this NFL season. During a 28-13 loss to the Saints on Monday, Marcus Vick went on a Twitter rant in defense of his big brother, attacking the Eagles offensive line and requesting his bro get traded.
"Please trade my brother," tweeted Marcus. "We requesting out of Philly!!! Please please please. This not even an NFL type of O-Line. What happen to the hogs the Eagles had last year and year before? Call Winston Justice back n Jamal J."
After the game, reporters informed Michael of his brother's comments. "He tweeted that during the game? I'm sorry. I'm unaware of that," said Michael Vick. "That's something I'm really going to have to address once I leave here. We're out there fighting as hard as we can, giving it everything we've got, and that's certainly not the case. I love each and every guy in that locker room, and if I could make every play right I would. I know they would do the same, so that's certainly not the case."
After deleting the angry tweets, Marcus got back on Twitter and apologized for his harsh criticisms. "I love my brother and it's hard as hell to watch him taking all those shots, but I'm sorry if I offended anyone and definitely didn't mean to put Mike in a tough spot. I'm not only watching as a fan, I'm watching as his blood."
