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. [si-nfl-player id="dd436627978d4105bc146d6062a4f4b5"]
