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?”

This is a risky move. Levi could still be solid somewhere else. I hope not. Will the local Dennys survive without this large chuck of revenue gone?

The line is young, but it's talented. It's going to be a bumpy ride early.

Addition by subtraction. Levi didn't want to be here and the depth at Left Tackle (Smith, Whitworth, Collins) made him expendable. He's 30 and has two bad knees. I bet that Carson is thanking God above that Levi isn't the Left Tackle this year. You can bet that they will now go after Roy Williams.
On another note, hearing anything about Chad makes me want to punch a baby. I hate that piece of crap. Cincinnati and it's team made him wealthy and subsequently into an NFL superstar and he spat in everyone's faces. He now has burned his bridges here as well as tarnished his once "entertaining" image. I personally would like to see a situation this year where everybody boos Chad every time he touches (or, as he often does, drops) the ball.

I'm sorry, but unless they sign a veteran or someone with at least a little bit of experience to give some depth, this is a terrible move. Jones may have been unhappy, but at least keeping him as a backup would have been a good idea. Now if Fat Andre goes down or just sucks, we'll be back to the Andrew Whitworth experiment at left tackle. And that hasn't worked out.

We're putting the most important job on the field-protecting Palmer-into the hands of a guy who was slow, fat and weak (only 19 reps of 225 at the combine) the last time he worked out? And this is somehow a good idea?

Mark my words: Palmer does not finish this year standing. Not with this offensive line.

I was under the impression that we would refer to our new right tackle only as HippopotaSmith?

Hippopotasmith is not bad in a class of rookies that are not great i think our draft stars are going to be rey and johnson but like all others i am just guessing

Or you could refer to him as the Outland award winner. you see this is an award given to the best offensive lineman in college football. He also won it playing in the toughest conf in college football.

Yeah the combine, he was out of shape. before that he was number one on all the draft boards.

but hey, you guys keep making up nicknames and bitching... it is what you do best.

Yeah, and Gino Toretta won the Heisman. College awards don't mean much in the pros.
