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;


    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?”

WDR - I disagree ever so slightly with your analysis above. I think Carson wonders how the promise and excitement of this QB WR threat became an non producing Chris Henry side show in 24 months with no major personal changes. I think he laments the way the whole situation has unfolded not that he doesn't understand why TJ would bail. All I can say is that I wish them both the best as they deserve it. Happy trails TJ, my 84 jersey will not be retired anytime soon.

Boomstick - we agree and have made the changes in the article. We just wish that Carson would let his feelings be known in public and join the revolution.

I agree that Carson needs to speak up. He is the only player with enough clout to get the team (a.k.a. MB) to listen. It is a sin to allow such a talented QB to waste away because ownership does not want to win. I wonder how often Carson regrets signing his long-term deal.... and how long it will be before he asks to be traded to someone that really wants to win.

I agree it would be quite a boost to our cause (and our egos) if Carson were to join the Revolution. It would certainly bring us more national attention. I also think that many ( but not all) local "journalists" would brand him the latest "cancer in the locker room" if he spoke out against management. The team needs leadership, no doubt, but Carson would be better served to work for change from within the organization, not by issuing public criticisms (as deserved as they are).

If Carson gave a shit he would do more. Lobbying f.a.'s to come to Cincy is a nice start. But it is something he should have started doing years ago. As well as been in managments ass as soon as the season ended to get T.J. re upped. When Boomer was here if there was a problem he was letting them know about it. Carson will never be a winner if he continues to allow this to happen, I have stopped feeling sorry for him. Geez if we had a qb with Carson's ability, Boomer's leadership, and Kenny's saavy he would be ......Greg Cook?
