A grandson of Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas has added more fuel to a nasty family feud by calling Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco an "embarrassing choice" to play his late grandfather in the upcoming film about his life, Robert Klemko of USA Today reports.

Flacco has agreed to play Unitas, the former Baltimore Colts quarterback, in the final scenes of the film, "Unitas We Stand," expected to hit theaters in 2014.

"If you want a real movie, hire a real actor," wrote J.C. Unitas on Facebook.

Added the 24-year-old former Villanova quarterback: "My grandfather and his legacy deserves only the best, and this is not it. Has Baltimore forgotten that Trent Dilfer also won a Super Bowl while playing for Baltimore?"

J.C.'s father, John Unitas Jr., calls Flacco a "goofball."

"If you want a quarterback, go with Peyton Manning," John said. "My father was just like that. This is a joke."
