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?”

If I were betting man, I would take the over, 7 to 9 wins this year, maybe ha.

Agree on the coaching change point. Pretty freakin dumb to keep Ole Bob around. I am ok with Zimmer.

Your point on healthy Palmer is a little weak. He lost to the Ravens (AFC Championship game) and the Titans who threatened to go undefeated before he got hurt. He played Dallas injured.

It won't be merely blind optimism to say that the team will likely post a better result this year. A 7 or 8 win season should be reasonably doable when you consider the following:

Combined record of the teams we played in '08 but won't play in '09 (Tennessee, Indianapolis, NY Giants, Philly, Dallas, Washington, Jacksonville): 68 - 43 - 1.

Combined record of their 2009 replacements on the schedule (Minnesota, Chicago, Denver, San Diego, Green Bay, Oakland, Detroit): 46 - 66.

Now predicting 10 wins plus sight unseen for this team, that would involve Kool-Aid.

For what it's worth, the Bengals are at 7.5 on the over/under season wins at the Planet Hollywood sports book here in Vegas. 60/1 to win the Super Bowl, in the lower third of teams as far as odds go. The Clowns are 75/1, if I recall what I saw yesterday in the book correctly. I'll again put my $20 for the Super Bowl win ticket in this week. I figure I've lost $200 so far in ten years. If I win, it's $1200. Who dey!?

mike brown has ruined football for me. He sucks big donkey nuts.Hire a G.M you old rancid FOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The more important bets are when will Mike Brown finally die and who he wills his share to.

I had season tickets for 12 yrs.... then they went 2-14... and I dropped them... they hired Marvin.... had a glimmer of hope... I stood fast... took my sundays back... learded how to fly radio control planes with my son... best decision ever ! I have not missed the frustration and disappointment. I went through the David Klingler years, it was pathetic.
The 2-14 season... I could not even give the last 2 home games away.... so I gave them to the pizza delivery man.
All I can say is "thanks Mike" I have a great relationship with my son now :)
