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?”

Well, at least its something. They are starting to address the D line. Maybre we can generate a bit of a pass rush this season. I dont think Tank will be an issue, who cares if he can arm a 3rd world country, hell, I love going out and popping of a few rounds when I get the chance. If I had NFL money, I'd have a small arsenal too. This is America, right, 2nd amendment and all? Hell, I'm kind of happy we now have one of those half crazed DT's that make opposing QB's nervous.

But we really need to address the O line and protect Carson and create holes for Cedric.

But more important... WE NEED A REAL GM AND A REAL SCOUTING DEPARTMENT!!!

¡Viva La Revolution!

Why was this guy available? Either no one wanted him or the Mikey "The Redeemer" overpaid for him or more likely both. The clown on the radio (1530) substituting for Moe Egger this morning LOVES the signing. What's the down side he asks? The downside is if we are now accepting this bullshit from Brown he'll keep doing this using this technique as a substitute for a legitimate scouting department. The 1530 guy, (I think that it was Mark Amazon(sp?)the same guy who slammed Carson Palmer last year saying that Palmer has been in the league long enough and needs to step it up, the same Carson Palmer who returned earlier than expected after having his knee obliterated. Macho guy, that Mark Amazon)... Anyways, he out claims that these signings havn't come back to bite us recently. Oh yeah, who has really done that well to risk these signings, Benson? The jury(sorry) is still out on him. Chris Henry was great. Made the organization a bigger national joke than it already was. He thinks that by employing these questionable humans he will get into Heaven. The rest of the NFL laughs at us and we keep allowing Mikey to "Groundhog Day" us. Same thing day after day, year after year with the same disgusting result. Go out and buy your Tank Johnson jerseys. I'm sure that it will be a big seller. That's what Mikey wants. New tires this year for Mikey's Lumina.

"I know the Bengals are being very careful with the players they're bringing in because of some of the things that have happened."

Colton's client has been here for one day and the agent already sounds like a MB associate. Apparently, some "things...have happened." WHY have these "things" happened? Couldn't have anything to do with poor management, scouting, or coaching. No, it's just back luck. The NFL gods decided that MB must be punished for making the playoffs by arresting 10+ Bengals starting that offseason.

PS: Yes, I know the agent is just saying what he has to. But how different is it than any justification you'd here from MB or anyone else in charge? Just fitting.

Can anyone answer why Peko always lines up at an angle to the line? Drives me nuts.

Anybody who thinks the Bengals #12 ranking (yards per game) means anything is delusional. This team has no pass rush and will be pushed around until they get some legit players up front. They have not had a pass rush for 20 years since Alfred Williams and James Francis! Raji has to be the pick at #6.

Just a quick question... unless he was dealing in weapons (illegally), how does the number of weapons he had have ANY form in this matter? He was in possession of a firearm within Chicago City limits and according to their law, that is illegal. That's all that there is to it. How many guns he had isn't germane to the situation unless a charge can be brought specifically requiring a certain amount of firearms.

Oh well yet another example of someone not knowing what they are talking about.

Make a new game to play inside,it sounds nice.
