Marcus Vick went off on the Philadelphia Eagles over Twitter while watching “Monday Night Football,” demanding that the team should trade his brother, Michael. “Please trade my brother. We requesting out of Philly!!!! Please please please……” he wrote on Twitter during Monday’s game between the New Orleans Saints and Eagles before deleting the tweet. That tweet was the first in a series of comments from Marcus criticizing the Eagles. He was particular critical of the team’s offensive line for its inability to protect his brother: Michael Vick has gone through a tough year with the Eagles. He had a major turnover problem the first few games and, though he curbed that issue, the team is still struggling. Even when he was moving the offense on Monday, a pass he threw near the end zone was not caught by Brent Celek, and the tipped ball was intercepted by Patrick Robinson and returned for a 99-yard touchdown. That seemed to be a microcosm of the Eagles’ problems this season. H/T Black Sports Online
