Who Dey Revolution Manifesto

  • Preamble

    IN THIS TIME of perpetual Cincinnati Bengals incompetence and futility, with zero playoff wins in the nineteen seasons since the WhoDeyRevolution Godfather, Paul Brown, passed away in 1991 and handed the team to his fortunate son, the Despot, Mike Brown;

    Introduction

    WE, the members of the Who Dey Revolution, in our fervent dedication to the Cincinnati Bengals and fanatical desire to transform our hometown team into perpetual Super Bowl contenders, call for a popular revolution of fans to demand comprehensive reform to the managerial decisions and approach of Cincinnati Bengals ownership, management, staff and players, and hereby call for the adoption of the following Who Dey Revolution Manifesto:

    Manifesto Demands

    THAT the Mike Brown, Katie Blackburn, Marvin Lewis, along with every other member of the Bengals management, staff and personnel, state publicly to all Bengals fans, “I will do everything in my power to help the Cincinnati Bengals win a Super Bowl;”

    THAT Mike Brown will hire a general manager, drastically expand the scouting department and relinquish all control of player personnel;

    THAT all training, rehabilitation and medical facilities are considered best-in-class compared to other NFL teams;

    THAT the management fill the team only with players who fit the system, both mentally and physically, and are not reluctant to makes changes to player personnel when needed, regardless of cost or loyalty concerns;

    THAT offensive and defensive line depth is considered the top priority for all player personnel decisions;

    THAT all decisions made by ownership, management, staff and players, both on and off the field, are judged only by this criterion: “Does this help the Cincinnati Bengals win a Super Bowl?”

thanks for the post I myself am still pissed about kicking a field goal there. says one thing we want a top 3 pick. I flipping hate mike brown think marvin should try coaching high school and hope the steelers lose out. And if I was ochO cinco or anyone else for that matter I would tell bratowski he should wake up during the meetings your offense is offensive. Thank god A Collins didn't listen to Levis blocking tips, bye bye Levi!

The Steelers scoring on the ensuing possession does not make this discussion a moot point. When Marvin made the decision to send Shayne Graham out to attempt a short field goal, the game was over. If I were a Steelers fan (Dear Lord typing that makes me realize I'm so glad I'm not), I would have celebrated when I saw the special teams unit run out onto the field because I would have known at that exact moment that victory was all but guaranteed. Marvin basically gave up on his team and sent them the message that he doesn't think they have what it takes to win, so instead he's going to focus on making the final score seem more "respectable." If he goes for the TD he is challenging them to win the game and telling them he believes they can do it. Then if the offense goes for it and scores a TD, maybe the defense gets fired up and buckles down, knowing that all they have to do is force a Pittsburgh punt and then they're giving the offense a chance to win the game, down by 6 with enough time left for a drive. It may sound unlikely, but this is what winning teams do all the time. And this is what we do not do.

The only translation we really need is tha Half-Sack Lewis is a Puss Weed!!
