Michael Vick responds to brother’s tweets saying he wants out of Philly

The last thing Michael Vick had to be expecting walking to the podium following a loss to the New Orleans Saints was to have to answer questions about his brother.

Yet, that’s exactly what Vick found himself having to do.

Vick’s younger brother, Marcus, ranted on twitter throughout the early stages of the Philadelphia Eagles’ 28-13 loss to the Saints Monday night. Marcus tweeted begging the Eagles to trade his brother and that they were requesting out of Philadelphia. There were a few expletive-laden tweets blasting the Eagles’ offensive line as well.

Vick walked to the podium unaware of the stir his brother had created through social media earlier in the evening. He didn’t seem pleased when learning of the comments from reporters following the game.

“You say he tweeted that during the game? Sorry, I’m not aware of that,” Vick said. “That’s something that I’m really going to have to address once I leave here.”

Vick did his best to shoot down any thought he wants out of Philadelphia.

“We out there fighting as hard as we can, giving it everything we’ve got,” Vick said. “That’s certainly not the case. Not the case here. I love each and every guy in that locker room and if I can make every play right, I would. I know they would do the same. So that’s certainly not the case.”
