Late yesterday, Michael Vick appeared on a Philadelphia area radio station and made a really classy statement when he was asked if he thinks that the Eagles should give him his starting quarterback job back now that he's healthy. Rather than making an argument for himself, he revealed that he thinks Nick Foles should keep the job since he's been playing so well.
"In all honesty, in all fairness," he said, "how can you take a guy out of the game who's been playing so well?"
And earlier today, Michael's brother Marcus Vick responded to those comments when someone asked him about them on Twitter. Now, if you've followed Marcus on Twitter at all over the course of the last year or so, then you know that he is not against saying some inflammatory shit on there, even if it means getting into trouble with his brother. So you probably would have expected Marcus to say something like, "$^%& NICK FOLES! GIVE MY BROTHER HIS JOB BACK!" But guess what? He didn't. Rather than take the bait and bash Foles, Marcus offered up an incredibly rational response:
WTF, Marcus? This shouldn't surprise us as much as it does. But we definitely didn't see this coming! Maybe you're not such a bad guy after all.
