Marcus Vick rips struggling Nick Foles on Twitter during Cowboys-Eagles game

Every so often Michael Vick’s brother, Marcus, unleashes a Twitter rant, possibly just to remind us all he’s still around. He was back at it again on Sunday, as Nick Foles struggled mightily against the Dallas Cowboys.

Foles entered Week 7 off performances in wins over the Giants and Buccaneers that were impressive enough to spark a QB controversy again in Philadelphia. But his second start in place of an injured Michael Vick — also his first appearance against a team with a win in 2013 — was much clunkier in the early going.

And that left the door open for Marcus Vick to let his feelings be known (warning: some tweets contain R-rated language):

Foles completed just 11-of-29 passes Sunday for 80 yards. He left the game in the fourth quarter with a head injury, forcing rookie Matt Barkley into the lineup for his first NFL action.

@MVFIVE Your comments in last weeks game and the Cowboys game are outrageous. You have a serious temper that you really need to get a hold of. I was blogging and saw your comment on how Micheal Vick should have been put back in the game even though he had re-injured his hamstring. Marcus, You are getting one step closer to loosing your Brother. YOU NEED TO STOP WITH THE EXPLICIT AND OUTRAGEOUS COMMENTS!!!

Marcus Vick's Wonderlic is 11.  This is an objective measurement of illiteracy.

Unsubscribe to his Twitter feed.  We already support him via welfare and food stamps, let's not also give him attention.

Michael Vick needs to take his brother and slam his head enough times so he has a head injury. Maybe that will stop the stupidity that keeps coming out of it. It's amazing the Eagles haven't shut this moron in a small, dark room with one light and "encouraged" him to STFU.

Any idiotic way to stay relevant. Marcus Vick's whole life/career is living through his brother and w/o Mike in the lineup, his life is as pathetic as his tweets against others. We all see your education got you NO WHERE! Grow up, thug wannabe/scrub actually.

Mike Vick is a jag off but his brother might be even a bigger one. he makes life hard for his brother with his constant mouth running with no concept or education... Hey Marcus what team you playing for again? Oh thats right you was dumped like a bag of crap after how long? Lol looser.

A never-was is criticizing an NFL back-up? Mmmmkay.... I guess it's no different than the legions of fatties tucked into a bag of Cheetos and a case of Natural Ice who yell at their screens all day every Sunday...

@RogerBridges Your comment below tells me a lot more about you and racism than it does about Marcus Vick.  Can one just be a jerk rather than that disgusting language you included?  Marcus Vick has shown himself to be of low character, but your comments show just a low class racist attitude that is disgusting.

Not sure if I would give too much exposure to the tweets of someone who raped a 16-year old.  And double that if the individual in question failed at his own attempt to succeed in the world and needs his brother to keep supporting him.

And for the 25th time since joining the Eagles Mike Vick will tell the media that he has had a talk with his brother about right and wrong. Also, for the 25th time since joining the Eagles, Mike Vick's brother, Marcus, will have not listened to him. 

You could just wise up and not give Marcus Vick the dignity of having his name mentioned in an article or on this website altogether. He's completely irrelevant and non-news. This isn't TMZ.

Nice to see Marcus took time off from his garbage collecting job to comment on someone who's jock he couldn't hold. As far as Chris Burke humiliating poor lil marcus, he humiliated himself.

Dear Chris Burke,

This type of sensationalism does no good to publicly humiliate Marcus Vick. It just aggravates readers like me who would rather see headlines of worthy athletes that belong in the news. Marcus Vick does not deserve to be written about because he's not a true athlete...and has no class to boot. I'm not sure what your intentions were when you were writing this crap because you've just stirred up more public reaction that really did not want to comment on this useless trash. Please write about something more interesting than some elementary school stuff from cyber bullies like Marcus Vick.

Try writing about how past NFL athletes cope with being cut from a team or something more relevant to the sport...

Marcus Vick is not even a has been, he's a never was. Why this clown still gets attention from the media is just plain ridiculous.

The non-merits of even giving this guy publicity aside... the reason Foles was in the game at all is because your bro was injured.  Maybe if he could stay healthy, you wouldn't have to spout off stupid comments.

I think little vick had some talent [ football ] also but could not manage to be enough of a human being to make it pay off. I can only remember him stomping some dudes head while he was in a game with camera's rolling. his I Q must be about 5 . Can you imagine what he is capable of when he knows he's not on camera. I think this is a good representation of a n------- . as long as there are punk loud mouth thugs like this around in my book there will always be a need for the n word

One of his tweets says "If its no makin no paper, I'm not doin it."  He said admitted to sitting around and not doing anything because he sure ain't makin no paper hahahaha!  What a loser!  Probably pays his rent by mooching off his brother!

Why is Marcus Vick still on the news?  If everybody ignored him, he would just go away.

Hey Brenda Vick,  Nice parenting job raising one current felon and one future felon.  The again, If your boy marcus had an once of intelligence or decency, he would be a top 10 NFL QB instead of a drug using, child molesting, loudmouthed punk.  You should have left his ignorant rear end in the projects where he belongs.

I was getting ready to bash Marcus Vick just as the writer of this article intended us to, but then I realized what he said was all very true.  

Foles sucks.

Why would anyone read a tweet from Marcus Vick, let alone report it as news?

CNNSI, why are you giving this guy publicity? You have a responsibility to at least try and not make me stupider. He doesn't.

Stop making up "news"

Why does Marcus Vick get so much publicity?  Eventually, these sports "Journalist" will have to find some talent and write stories about those who actually play sports. 

Don't give me 'He played sports."  He was barely in the league and is only relevant because writers lack the talent and imagination to think of better stories to write about.

Marcus Vick is a washed up, wanna be, has been.  His comments mean nothing.

The obvious question is why any rational human would be following the tweets of this fellow in the first place?!?

Idiocy runs in the family. Why the NFL even lets a dog-murderer play is a testament to their morals...they have none. If an IQ test was required and a Forrest Gump score of 75 was required to pass, the NFL would have to play with 3-man teams, and even then that might be stretching it.

Is Marcus Vick lying ? He is a casual fan like all of us. Why are you people so sensitive?

@Jim C1 Or comment on it?   Based on this story already having 45 comments, and the idea of stories being to attract readers, the guys at SI may know a bit about what they are doing.

@iamHoraceKnight Because before he stomped on Elvis Dumervil's leg, he was viewed as a potential 1st round draft pick. 

I think at one point he was more accurate than his big brother. 

But now his skills have gone to the dogs.

Too soon?

@KeithKoloff sorry man but if your a direct relative (mother father brother sister) your comments reflect the famous family member. how the hell do you not get that? yeah he can have an opinion but to be that public about it? use your head. thats the world we live in.

Absolutely true.  Except the part about Marcus Vick being a future felon - he is in fact a current felon after committing statutory rape of a 15 year old girl.  Man is a zero.
