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?”

It's Hue...not Hugh. ;-)

I wonder if Chad has a 'welcome home' headlock waiting for him?

Good news, terrible headline. Our prayers will not be answered until someone other than Mikey is calling the shots.

They better get on it if they are gonna do it. Ryan has accepted the job in NY.

A new offensive coordinator is a very small thing we need but hey, it's one of those things we need. Gotta be happy that the rumor is even there. Now let's see what happens.

Leo I think the point of the title is that people have been clamoring (including WDR) for a change of some kind this offseason. Are all the Bengals problems solved? Of course not.

However, outside of a general manager or additional scouts or a practice facility, this is still high on my list on a change that needs to be made immediately.

Right now beggars can't be choosers.

Boomer, I'd just asking the writers at WDR to stay focused. However you and I might feel about Brat, hiring a new OC is not part of the Manifesto. A new (or would it be old) assistant coach at this point is a band-aid, certainly not the answer to our prayers. Some would argue that pumping up the Revolutionaries over a band-aid plays into Mikey's hands. Change is good, but let's eliminate the hyperbole. We heard the same sighs of relief when Brat replaced Ken Anderson.

When it seems like 7 out of 10 plays are off-tackle runs, any change to the play-calling is welcome in my book ... unless it become 8 out of 10. God help us.

I think the point of the title is that people have been clamoring.
There are certainly some people who revert back to juveniles after they mate.
Nothing beats finding some useful information, for my research, keep em coming.
