There is enough drama and angst in Philadelphia right now.
So, when Michael Vick was being harassed and hit by the New Orleans Saints on Monday night, he didn’t need his younger brother Marcus Vick stirring up a little Twitter controversy.
But that is just what Marcus did in a series of Twitter posts, some profane, in which he ripped the Eagles offensive line and more.
In one message, Marcus Vick pleaded or a trade out of Philadelphia for big brother. Well, little brother has since apologized on Twitter.
“That’s not me,” Michael Vick said, according to CSN Philly. “If it doesn’t come from me. I’m in the middle of a full-fledged game. I don’t know what’s being said. I don’t know what’s going on. But I definitely got it corrected. We definitely had a serious heart-to-heart conversation.
“You’ll never see that again. Trust me.”
