After his brother Marcus tweeted he wanted his brother out of Philadelphia, Michael Vick talked to his brother about not ruining the Vick name anymore (Credit: AP Photo) During Monday night’s game against the New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick had a rough night. His offensive line looked to be one of the worst in the NFL. As the game was playing out in New Orleans, Michael’s brother Marcus was taking to Twitter to ask that his brother be traded. Today, Michael announced that he has talked to his brother and that it will not happen again. Vick also said that he does not agree with what Marcus tweeted. “That’s not me,” Vick said. “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.” Marcus Vick tweeted an apology on Tuesday, apparently after his big brother had told him to, and Michael said on Wednesday that he’s confident his brother got the message. “You’ll never see that again,” Michael Vick said. “Trust me.” Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Executive Editor - Brett Krummenacker @BKrumm_SKThe post Michael Vick: I talked to Marcus and it won’t happen again appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.

Saints 28, Eagles 13

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.
