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?”

Playoffs? Playoffs! Who said anything about... playoffs?!

I think we need to start refering to Chad By his initals from now on C.O.C. what is better fitting than that

Agreed. Carson needs to become the face and voice of the franchise. It's been a difficult task for him with so many other strong personalities like Chad, T.J, etc. Not that that's an excuse to not be more vocal, but it's time that he takes control of this team before it completely implodes on itself.

Carson is the one player that can bail out Mike Brown's historic incompetence and misanthropic stewardship of this team and potentially take us to the super bowl.

Carson isn't naturally suited to the vocal, outspoken role of leader, but here's hoping all his talk the past couple weeks has some force behind it. Playoffs are a LONG shot this year. Superbowl impossible. But if they can put together another O line that blocks like 2005 in a couple years, then who knows.

I am not holding my breath for that to happen, however, and I fear we will waste Carson's career.

This smells to me like Carson is trying to institute a sort of "scared straight" program with The O.C. (I doubt it works, but I appreciate the effort.) I would LOVE to see Chris Henry make a serious push for his starting spot... not because I like CH, but it might force The O.C. to play hard this year.

Chad isn't going to play hard until he isn't a bengal. Too bad for him by the time he gets out of cincy he'll be washed up and nothing more than a cautionary tale to other disgruntled bengals employees.

RK: we can't call him that, because the band---Corrosion Of Conformity---will sue him, and i'm sure they could use the money these days...

Ya think? It's what the MBB does best...Chad knows it too, but methinks his
epiphany has occured too late...he's clearly tired, of trying to be
a showboat on an at-this-point historically sucky team...
...and the WDR marches on!!!


Major Payne: Now dammit, *I* was going to call him 'The O.C.' ...

...I will trade you an "H.'Mister Money-Boobs' Smith",
for the "The O.C." you have placed on the kiosk...
there should be WDR football cards
