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?”

I don't know that anyone is saying that Collins is better or as good as Andre Smith, but I don't think he's a player to scoff at, either. Though you referenced an obscure statistic that rates the Baltimore Ravens at "16th", I'm pretty sure that if you polled the offensive units around the NFL, I'd bet that players would say that the Ravens are far better and more difficult, defensively, than "middle of the pack"--especially regarding pass rush. Same goes for the Colts. They may not be a solid defensive unit as a whole, but Freeney and Mathis are a force.
I think Collins held up well last year (blanked the Steelers), but I think he's better suited at Left Tackle over the Right side. I don't think he's a fantastic Tackle (not yet, at least), nor do I think he is the player than Andre is. But, as far as backups and other options go, I'm happy to have him there. After having only 6 games under his belt, being a solid college prospect and leaving a year early to be drafted, I think he's got a lot of potential to grow. Your other options would probably be Kooistra or Dennis Roland--yikes. They should have put Collins at LT, Whitworth at LG and Smith at RT. Unfortunately, this holdout has botched things up and not allowed to let the Bengals field their best O-Line possible. And that's a bargaining chip that Keels is currently using.

It is good to compete, to compete is good! 8 and 8 would be great! The superbowl of competition. Boy, you could see the fear of the players last night when Marvin stated "losing is not acceptable", NOT! "Child Please" It was very aparent Marvin's rant scene was for TV and the players were having none of it.

BTW, How stupid do you have to be? "Child Pleas? How can you eat at Mcdonalds all the time, provide free advertising for them, and not figure out you should maybe own 20 or 30 of them?

Can we have the next airplane banner be: "Katie, stop trying to kill Carson Palmer."

Will - I love it!

The next airplane banner should say "Carson Palmer is the new Archie Manning. Maybe his sons will play for the Colts and Giants..."

I think maybe Smith was less than impressive during OTA's and they are not going to wste money on a lazy, out of shape player who will eat up the salary cap. I wish they would not have drafted him in the first place but lets not double the mistake buy overpaying for him.

Collins' pass-blocking is just fine for a right tackle. Probably above average. It is his run blocking that is a concern.
