The Dallas Cowboys Wished Michael Vick a Happy Birthday on Tuesday

Jun 27, 2012, 3:13 AM EDT

The Cowboys decided to drop a little Mike Vick trash talk on Twitter this week.

Philadelphia is 3-0 versus the Cowboys when Michael Vick starts. Last season, the Eagles dispatched of them handily twice by a combined score of 54-14. Vick completed nearly two-thirds of his passes against Dallas in 2011, going 39-for-60 with 572 yards and four touchdowns.

But by all means, Dallas Cowboys Twitter account, poke the beast with a stick.

Sure, this is simply harmless fun in the spirit of competition. It’s just when a bully used to kick my ass during eighth grade, I didn’t hang posters of the one good shot I got in all over the hallways on the first day of high school to hype our next big fight.

The Cowboys figure to be in the hunt this season, as they always are, and I too look forward to those meetings. I’m merely not so sure Rob Ryan — or any other defensive coordinator for that matter — should share my enthusiasm.

Vick turned 32 yesterday.
