Marcus Vick says “fat boy” tweet wasn’t aimed at Andy Reid

Andy Reid, Michael Vick AP

For the second time this season, the younger brother of Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has created a controversy on Twitter. Last time, Marcus Vick apologized for tweeting angrily during an Eagles loss. But this time Marcus says he has nothing to apologize for.

While the Eagles were losing to the Redskins on Sunday, Marcus Vick wrote a message on Twitter about a “fat boy” who needed to “save your ass.” Some people took that tweet as a shot at Eagles coach Andy Reid, who does, in fact, need to do something to save his own job. (And who is, in fact, fat.)

But Marcus went on Twitter today and said that the Sunday tweet wasn’t referencing the Eagles.

“I never mentioned Coach,” Vick wrote. “U people find anything to pick at. Step off my tweets PLEASSSSE!!!! It’s not that serious. Everything don’t involve football.”

Marcus didn’t explain what his tweet was referencing, but the “fat boy” tweet was oblique enough that he can credibly claim he wasn’t talking about the Eagles. After previously tweeting, “Please trade my brother. We requesting out of Philly!!!! Please please please,” that represents progress.

    If only Marcus had the same sense of urgency when his own career was in the balance….

    Why are we still talking about this punk??

    PS: It was an obvious reference to Reid.. at least step up and be a man and admit it.

    Why even print the dumb rants that vicks brother goes on, who cares, this guy has nothing to do with anything, just have some journalistic selectivity.

    Marcus Vick needs to go away.

    If he’s lying and the tweet was about Andy Reid, this guy needs help.

    Does he not realize that Andy Reid gave his brother a chance when no one else would? Reid put a lot out there for Vick, why act hostile?

    “yeh i dunt care if u gave my bro a job n alouded him a lot of $ whcich helps me 2 but ur fat and arent succesful on the football field so f u fat man hope mike goes somewhere good and w/ a fair chance”

    Marcus Vick is the worst troll ever.

    Whatever, everybody will come here and bash Marcus, but half the city of Philadelphia is blogging the same thing just using different words.

    I’d love to know who he wants us to believe he was tweeting about. It’s not like he hasn’t already made it clear how upset he is with the way the Eagles team/fans have treated his brother before.

    The Vick brothers have never been known to think things through before doing things. Most times they don’t think at all.

    Except the eagles didn’t give my brother a second chance that most regular people would not have received. They also never gave my brother 100 million dollars

    This guy’s an idiot/loose cannon

  13. mj1818 says: Nov 20, 2012 2:37 PM

    I guess that’s why he’s not in the NFL.

    Marcus Vick seems to be the most hated mon on Twitter. Its kind of funny and yet sad in a way.

  15. purplengold says: Nov 20, 2012 2:41 PM

    Didn’t Marcus go to college?

  16. vicksprman says: Nov 20, 2012 2:42 PM

    So I gather from these comments Andy will get a standing O Monday night?

  17. rcali says: Nov 20, 2012 2:46 PM

    Wow, Reid was the only dummy wanting to give his brother yet another chance in pro football and he says that?

  18. remok9 says: Nov 20, 2012 2:46 PM

    You can’t fix stupid.

    Glad to see Michael’s talk with Marcus really hit home. What a dense individual!

  20. hendeeze says: Nov 20, 2012 2:59 PM

    Why does anyone care what Marcus Vick has to say? Really….

  21. jebjja says: Nov 20, 2012 3:03 PM

    It’s called a playbook not a handbook. Something you had no desire to learn in Miami, hence no NFL career, now known as Michael’s attention seeking mouthpiece.

  22. mburkett1980 says: Nov 20, 2012 3:35 PM

    Why does it seem like every person in the world has forgotten that Reid just had one of his children die three months ago?

  23. our2boyz1 says: Nov 20, 2012 5:57 PM

    why is this relevant?

  24. decon49 says: Nov 20, 2012 8:34 PM

    who?
