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?”

Wow. That's pretty much all I can say. All the planets aligned and somehow Bratkowski conjured up a lucky year having all these pro-bowl athletes at the top of their game BEFORE the Bengals' terrible training staff and nutritional staff got a hold of them and ruined them so now they think he is a great OC. What a joke. I wonder if Mike Brown offered a couple shiny nickels to these writers to make BB look better.

He is using the run more often??? That is the biggest lie I have ever read. This guy does not have a clue! We are a passing team. Just go look at the stats. Well, and watch our games. More than likely this CHUMP never has.

I don't think tiger j@w realizes that it was C Trant's job to watch and discuss Bengals games for a while.

However it IS rediculous that ANYONE would rank bob very high at all

All of the Bengal fans are are laying it on Chad Johnson. I just have one question and tell me if I'm off base--when has Carson Palmer ever had a clutch performance in a meaningful game? I recently watched the NFL Replay of the Cincy at Denver game in 2006, and he missed at least three touchdown passes that would have put the game out of reach. He seems to lack any movement and looks as stiff as Drew Bledsoe. He always seems to overthrow open receivers. All I know is that he got the Bengals to a winning season one time when they had a weak schedule.

uhhh...the very next week, CP basically carried us over the Steelers w/ 2 TD passes and the pass/catch that will forever keep me a Chris Henry apologist in the 4th quarter. which would have put us in the playoffs if our franchise player didn't miss the game winning FG

Looking at the stats of that New Year's Eve 23-17 OT loss, Carson was 20-38 including that prayer to Henry. The Bengals lost time of possession 40:41 to 20:52! I believe they scored that touchdown late in the 4th to even get to 17 points. Is this the best example we can come up with of CP being an elite, clutch quarterback when it counts?
