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?”

LOL. Yes, let's honor the guy who decided he didn't want to practice in training camp this year, was unprepared for the first few games (when they actually could have won a few), and decided he didn't want to catch any punts yesterday.

TJ was probably their only good player most of this year, but he's as much a part of the problem as anyone else.

I like TJ. He's a solid receiver, an articulate man and he represents the Bengals well.

That said...look at his numbers when Chad is not in the lineup. TJ's two worst games came with Chad on the sidelines. Admittedly, both games were played in dicey weather...but still, it warrants mentioning. And Top Six is dead right...TJ has a lot to say during season, but where was he during the OTAs? His four worst performances this year came when Chad was not in the lineup...and during the first two games of the year; after he sat out of all of training camp.

He's a good receiver...but let's not fool ourselves into believing he's this great leader and indispensible player. No player on a 3-11-1 team is indispensible.

And keep in mind; whenever Ocho Cinco is acting the fool on the sidelines...TJ is usually sitting right next to him either doing the same thing, or doing nothing to curb the behavior.

I could be talked into keeping him, but not if it's going to kill their cap.

All the contributors to this site are spoon-fed, pricks from Indian Hill. They are using mommy and daddy's money to run this website to gain popularity and attention through the media, and using chumps / readers, like you, as pawns. Don't listen to what these choads say. They are in it for a reason. Go to MikeBrownSucks.com if you want to take part in the original revolution.

Unlike MikeBrownSucks.com, this site is actually updated and worth visiting. MikeBrownSucks.com currently lists the Bengals 2008 record as 0-4 and hasn't had a blog entry since '03. Why would anyone bother with that site??

WDR actually gives people a reason(s) to visit...multiple times a day. Keep up the good work guys!

I write for this site, and I grew up in Anderson Township.

Anyway, the best Bengals-related decision I ever made was buying a Housh jersey back in 2005 instead of a Chad or Carson jersey (OK, clearly I also have a Palmer jersey). When I used to go to the Bengals bar in DC (before work started to own me), I rocked a Housh every week. I was thinking that I would continue wearing it, but then I'd feel like one of those assholes who still wears a Corey Dillon jersey to games in 2008.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that "Johnny Comelately" from above probably wears a Corey Dillon jersey since he's clearly stuck in the past.

TJ is old. He was a nice player, but you don't franchise tag a guy who'd be 35 by the time the Bengals could compete for a Super Bowl given the miraculous parting-of-the-red-sea sale of the franchise to someone competent.

Also why hate on TJ so much that you want to see him piss away his couple good years left playing for this sorry ass franchise? He should go to Dallas or Miami or Pittsburgh, someplace where he'll have a chance to win a Super Bowl next year.

i never understood the argument, "if you like a guy so much, give him a chance to go get a ring"...this is a business. period. the player will go where the money is, the team will pay as little as possible. if it works out that it looks like a good situation, then it will be said, "this is the place that gives me the best chance to win a championship." bunch of garbage.

and what kind of bengals fan are you, "benzoo", that you would root for one of the clubs best and favorite players to go to shittsburg or dallas and win a super bowl. you have no credibility with chunks like that falling from your hole...

and most of you need to get over the age thing. it's a number and it's case by case. willie's too old. now he's starting for a potential playoff team. housh was a good player. now he's old. are you a g.o.p. double-speaker? maybe that's it. you're on this site as a shittsburgh fan trying to throw your two iron shillings into the mix with the hope you could land an "old" receiver who on his death bed would be light years better than that chinkey-eyed bastard you've got now...

and to the douches who clearly don't understand how football works with the, "have you seen his numbers without chad...have you seen chad's numbers without t.j.?...have you seen what chris henry does when no one else is in the lineup?!"....if football's not your sport, ok, i get it, move on to squash, but really, do you not understand the receiver position?...least important on the field, and yet, devastating when it's engineered right (2-3 solid receivers with different skills)...it's exactly what we have with our three receivers no matter the age, and it's not on them that they aren't worth a damn when there's no pass protection for a midget inaccurate QB or a shell of a run game as a diversion...

promise to try a little harder with the reading and the writing from now on...
