And Mike's little brother took to Twitter and got pretty, pretty, pretty aggressive with some of his comments about the Eagles. The younger Vick requested a trade (OK...)
Please trade my brother. We requesting out of Philly!!!! Please please please......— Marcus Vick (@MVFive) November 6, 2012
And then he shredded the offensive line.
"F---ing line s---ty!!! I never seen a Qb get pressured so fast.....," the younger Vick tweeted. "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.
"Finally a long run. Damn!! That's the best hole the line opened up all year..... Wtf"
Marcus opened up the evening with less than 8,000 Twitter followers, but that didn't stop his message from spreading like wildfire. Within 30 minutes of his first tweet about the trade, it had been re-tweeted well over 2,000 times.
Judging by some of @mvfive tweets u know Vick be talking mad ish about the issues going on.— Lawrence Jackson (@LoJackson94) November 6, 2012
I mean, right? Vick's clearly been rattled by several of the Eagles issues this season -- he admitted as much to the MNF pregame show, saying he was beginning to get worn by all the chatter about possibly being replaced by Nick Foles.
There's a pretty good chance that if he's willing to express such a frustration publicly to a sideline reporter than he's more than willing to say something privately to his own brother.
