While the NFL world is watching the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints face off on Monday Night Football, one observer with personal interest in the game is going off on the Eagles for their lackluster offensive line play among other things.

Eagles starting quarterback Michael Vick’s brother, Marcus, is using his Twitter account to rip the Eagles and embarrass his brother during the process.

It all started when Michael Vick was getting hit early an often during the game. It didn’t sit well with his younger brother and that is when Marcus began to sound off with,  “F–king line sh–ty!!! I never seen a Qb get pressured so fast.” The younger Vick didn’t stop there.

Perhaps what stuck out the most from Marcus was when he tweeted, “Please trade my brother. We requesting out of Philly!!!! Please please please.”

He later deleted the tweet but then went back on the trade discussion.

If Marcus really didn’t know who Foles was, would he know that he attended Arizona? Probably not. Moving on.

While Marcus Vick’s comments really hold no weight, it is interesting to note that he is so publicly trashing his brother’s team. That has to make you wonder whether or not Michael Vick is talking openly with his disgust for the franchise to his family. If this is the case, both sides need to part ways soon.

Vick is a turnover machine and, while he is not solely to blame for the Eagles’ struggles, he is certainly a big part of their issues.

It’s time for the Eagles to move on and see what they have in rookie quarterback Nick Foles.
