Mike Vick had it tough against the Saints Monday night, taking a number of hits behind a struggling offensive line in a must-win game for the Eagles a week after there were many calling for his job.
It's been a tough week and we can understand if he and his family are frustrated.
You know what Vick doesn’t need, though? His baby brother -- a guy who wasted his own talent and has been prone to making bad decisions -- creating problems for him.
Marcus spent much of the night on Twitter lambasting the Eagles for their line play, decision making, etc. but his tweet of the night; this beauty:
An ill-advised move, given the climate in Philadelphia and the very likely potential that Vick could be on his way out of Philly after the season and having to search quite hard for a team willing to give him a shot as the starter.
One would assume that Michael won’t be pleased with his brother’s comments and it's just another example of how the public forum of Twitter can cause problems for athletes; even when they aren’t the ones running their mouths.

Man stop your wining, Michael.
So the media is the cause of the Eagles’ maladies are the media’s fault?

Michael Vick and Drew Brees came into the NFL the same year.
Now, they're in the same predicament.
Both are the quarterbacks of increasingly desperate teams, the season teetering on the edge of collapse.
Brees has essentially become a one-man show for the New Orleans Saints (2-5), who are plagued by a historically leaky defense and anemic running game.
For Vick, the stakes...
Vick was sacked 7 times against Saints
The Philadelphia Eagles had everything to prove Monday night. Not only to the fans, the city and the owner, but to themselves. After playing poorly last week in a blowout against the Atlanta Falcons, the Eagles held a players-only meeting in hopes of righting a quickly sinking ship. But instead, there will be no need for a rescue effort, as...
NEW ORLEANS -- So much for players-only meetings. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick used the occasion of his team's three-game October nosedive to bring his teammates behind closed doors last week in an attempt to hash out their woes. After a 28-13 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Monday night -- the Eagles' fourth consecutive defeat and fifth in six games...
If you had told me before the game that the Saints would sack Michael Vick 7 times and hold the Eagles to 7 points, I would have laughed in your face. If you told me they'd yield 447 yards, I'd absolutely believe you. If you told me both would happen, I'd probably seek to have you institutionalized. But that's exactly what happened oddly enough. Make no mistake, the...

Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints are having fun again. They hope it's a sign of things to come in the second half of the season.
Michael Vick kept picking himself up off the Superdome turf, the recipient of an awful beating.
