I actually feel bad for Vick here. I’ve been critical of him – both on the field and off – partly because he isn’t a very good quarterback, partly because his image is meticulously crafted, and partly because the V7 movement annoys me. But, Vick hasn’t had any major missteps, and he deserves credit for that.
What he doesn’t need is his criminal brother, Marcus, spewing nonsense – about the elder Vick, the Eagles’ offensive line, concussions, and more – in a public forum. Vick’s younger brother may be one of the stupidest motherfuckers alive, and that’s exactly the thought that I imagine was running through QB 7’s head when he had to answer this question from Les Bowen after the game:
On Twitter, your brother was asking the Eagles to trade you, saying that “we want out of Philadelphia.” Is that the case?
Poor Michael. His response:
“You’re saying he tweeted that during the game? Sorry, I was unaware of that. That’s something that I’m really going to have to address once I leave here. You know, we out there fighting at hard as we can, giving it everything we got. That’s certainly not the case, not the case here. 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.”
