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?”

Michael Johnson and Rey Maualuga will be able to get to the QB. I also believe that Robert Geathers, Domata Peko and Pat Sims are primed for a big season. This will lead to solid seasons from Leon Hall and Joseph (who both have looked good in the preseason). Expect the sack total this year to definitely increase.

Nothing much has changed. Overpaid Geathers isn't suddenly going to get better. Maybe they'll get 25 sacks this year, big whoop. Plus given how often Carson Palmer will be on his back before he gets hurt again, most teams will beat the Bungles by running the ball, since the Bungles aren't going to score much this year.

Not buying that the Bengals don't score much this year. They have a ton of weapons to use and even if Palmer ends up sidelined for a short or long time, I haven't seen anything that says O'Sullivan will be Fitzy (read: awful, short, short armed, running for life). That said, I also haven't seen anything that has told me the O-line will be THAT much better than last year, but they cannot possibly as bad or worse, thiss much I know.
The D-line? LOVE what I've seen from Sims so far, and I think the other personell we possess there can be a good (not great) D-Line. Even against the run.
Geathers has spent the last two years reeling, but not always of his own volition, '07 was a waste year, as our idiot and fragile LB's were decimated and he did what was asked of him by stepping in to a stand up role more often and that affected his numbers significantly. Last year, who the hell could have performed with the supporting cast? Haynesworth? Yes him, but who else? Is he overpaid? Probably, is he worth having on the team regardless? Yes. Will he have a MUCH better year this year? I think so!

A co-worker of mine was just called by the Bengals ticket office on his cell phone offering "Single game tickets for great seats." The only tickets he ever bought were against the Browns two years ago. They're getting pretty desperate by calling a customer from a single game years back who also happens to be on the do-not-call list.

At most 6 wins in 2009. Mark it down.

05).... why would you lie to us... oh, wait,... its kuz youre fucking mike goddamn brown... fucking pos..... hopfully we can overcome it.. but then it would just fuel the fire
