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?”

I think MB is going to use the "Hard Knocks Curse" excuse this year for losing more games than we did last year.

From DJ Gallo in today's ESPN Page 2:

The Music City Miracle. The Immaculate Reception. Plays like Brandon Stokley's touchdown usually get special names. I submit this one for Denver's winning touchdown: A Play Not Entirely Unexpected Against The Cincinnati Bengals. Catchy, no? And then with all future such plays, we can just tack on Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, etc.

Fuck DJ Gallo. Just chalk it up to the curse, call it Bo's revenge part I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X.

Ah yes, Leo, if I recall correctly that was from "DJ Gallo Column That Did Not Make Me Laugh, Part 3,587"

The Mike Brown still gets his money play.

The Bob Brat legacy: 1st drive typically effective due to practice of scripted plays, rest of game when adjustments are required no where to be seen

I'll say this now - if, and it's a huge IF, the Bengals are going to beat the Steelers this season, it'll be in Week 3. Not only is it a home game (with more Steelers fans in attendance than Bengals fans, I'd wager), but Polamalu is going to be out, and their secondary otherwise sucks at coverage. Of course, so did Denver's, and Brat thought it would be a good idea to run the ball when passing was so much more effective, so I doubt we'll win that one.

We have to get rid of Brat and let the dogs loose. I know lets do a run play on second and eight over and over again. I find Brat to be unimaginative, can't adjust and seems to not be able to put his foot down on the opponent's throat to exploit whatever weakness they show. I have joined the revolution, I am not renewing my season tickets next year...I'm done lifes to short

Dan Fouts kept asking what I've been wondering all through the Brat-worst years: On 3rd down, why doesn't the receiver get past the 1st down marker on his route, rather than hope to make a few yds after the catch? And before you tell me he's throwing to the RB as a last resort, I started asking this while watching Peter Warrick. Smallest guy on the field, often asked to catch a five-yd pass on 3rd-and-8 in the middle of the field, with his back turned to the LB!

@Leo deTrotskyo: Dan Fouts and you both have some basic knowledge of football. Your mistake is assuming Bratkowski and Mike Brown have same.

The first week is nothing to judge a season on. I will wait till week 3 before I make a judgment call. However three dropped balls by Coles is nerve racking.
