Staging 101: Do Not Cover Bong With Boxer Shorts

Actually, we can’t really tell what the boxer shorts are covering. The first thought was a lamp, but then, there’s a lamp right next to them. So what else would a young male want to hide quickly when a landlord pops in to take some photos? The other possibility is that the young man believes this is appropriate boxer storage, and looking around at his room, that doesn’t seem far-fetched.

Perhaps what’s most amazing of all is that this home–obviously rented, at the moment, by students–has five bedrooms, and yet the photographer chose this one to represent the house in a real estate listing. How bad must the other four have been? Were there boxers strewn from the ceiling? Being a landlord for college students must be most impossible job there is.

Current rental asking price: $2,450 per month.

    eh, the discussion was more than he did for McNabb before he benched him for kl00b in Baltimore. I mean, if this keeps up, he’s got to make the call to go to Foles. It isn’t a question of whether this is “the new” Mike Vick, or “the old” Mike Vick, but more “the horrendously ineffective turnover machine” Mike Vick. He’s on pace for his absolute worst season as a pro, which has got to be disappointing to the Eagles, considering the effort and money they put into improving the defense. Strange to think that he could conceivably benched against the Giants, the team he brought the Eagles back on, in his signature moment as an Eagle.

    After last game, I’m pretty much done with Vick — I’ll give him one more chance against the Giants but — considering last year’s performance — the TOs are pretty ridiculous now. I was a huge supporter at first, especially over Kolb. Vick has a rocket laser arm and legs to match, he’s relatively durable warrior etc, but the turnovers have got to stop. With the current defense, Foles is all we need — a tall QB to hand off to McCoy and get the ball out quick — manage the game and (excuse the tennis analogy) shoot for holding serve instead of hitting aces every point.

    The injured O-line was helpless. Marty’s play calling again failed to include runs/screens, which are best until the O-line recovers. Vick’s lucky to be alive with so many UNBLOCKED rushers. He would actually be safer running more (it would slow the rush some).

      The O-Line really wasnt “helpless”. They struggled at times but for the most part did an adequate(not in the replacement officials sense) job. The bigger issue was that Vick held the ball too long when pressure was coming and scrambled or threw the ball away when there wasnt pressure. He has no pocket presence and is not seeing the field well. Two major issues for a franchise QB to be having.

      Marty is a big source of the problem. He needs to recognize that Vick is struggling during the game and give him some help in the form of short quick routes, screens and running the ball. McCoy should be touching the ball 10 times per half to make the defense respect the run which will in turn open up the deep ball.

      Then again Im not holding my breath for the change in philosophy.

        I hate to say it…but I’m not holding my breath either. Andy will “see some things there…” but Vick surely hasn’t see much of anything!
