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?”

Thank goodness. I cannot believe that MB was able to get this deal done. (Considering no one else wanted Crocker.)

Rumor has it that MB is indeed looking for more guards. He needs someone to man the telephones to make sure that no one makes long distance phone-calls.

$10 million, four year deal for a player who will be 29 in a week. Brilliant.

Crocker was playing for his career last season, if he continues to do that it'll be a good deal. If not, it will end up a lot like the Dexter Jackson signing.

Maybe I drank too much Kool-Aid, but I really like this deal, and I think Derrick Ward would be a great fit here and going after him is a smart move for the Bengals.

And I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that the Bengals will re-sign TJ. My guess is he is just not getting the $$ offers that he thought, and all things being equal he'd prefer to come back to Cincy and play for Carson.

More Kool-Aid time: if we sign Birk or one of the other quality veteran Center/Guards, sign Ward, TJ, and one of the linebackers you mention, I think it will have been a pretty good free agency. We can go OT in round 1, RB or DL in round 2, and get depth on the O-line and defense in the rest of the draft.

Maybe it's just the hangover.

Joe, take that nonsense over to bengals.com. Stay away from the light, Carol-anne. Welcome back to reality. The Bengals aren't signing Ward. They're not signing Birk. They're not signing anyone who wasn't on the team last season save for a few scrubs. That's just a fact. Might as well accept that and move on.

i thought that´s who you give the deals to - the people who will only be early 30´s when it runs out, not the ones who are there when the deal starts. $2.5 mil a year - what are you whining about. the guy showed some swagger. younger than dexter. more experienced than the promising rookies we have. and what´s to be and be coached by the coaches here. sure the guy was playing for his career. who cares. he played adequately, and at this point, subtracting him from that position would mean having to spend money there when everyone agrees it would be better spent elsewhere. it´s a value. try to at least say something reasonable in your comments as the host of the site did in the original post of this thread.

I don't think I said anything unreasonable...Ever notice how baseball players seem to put up better numbers the year before free agency? That's all I said. i like his swagger and his style, and if he plays like that this year it will work out. The bottom line is, he was the best safety available at that price and already knows the system. I am cautiously optimistic.

comment was meant for bobby boy up there with his cliched, ´brilliant´...some people can´t give a single word of positivity to this franchise....

I need some help from WDR Nation...

I am looking for the post on here where a few geniuses harassed the Brown Family in the luxury box at an away game and Katie Blackburn reportedly tried to steal their sign through the window.

Any ideas??

I gotcha runpassorboot, sometimes by Bengals douchebaggery makes me a little defensive! I wish they would use the same common sense approach in the TJ situation as they did with Crocker's.
