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?”

"Using data from 1993-2007, the findings: the Bengals had the second least turnover at 89.6%, less than a percentage point behind the Texans."

this is my surprised face.

It actually is a surprising statistic seeing as how so many of their draft picks are busts. I would have figured that they would have had one of the highest player turnover rates in the NFL.

...and you need to take into consideration the 'Cancer' factor. Guys that are good players can be poisoned by being in and amongst a group of lesser players -- even lesser attitudes. Yep, the bad guys can bring down the good guys and believe me, it HAS happened many a time in Cincinnati! In most cases though, it seems that the cancers (i.e., poisoners) are the good players but terrible in skills otherwise. With the Bengals and their lack of turnover, a guy who gets in with MBB stays with the team and then brings down some of the incoming players. 'Turrible!'


I think you've just described Jeremi Johnson to a "T". Come in, play at a high level for a year or two, receive a contract that's hardly commensurate with your ability level, then get fatter and fatter, eventually eating your way into unemployment. But then you get brought back for redemption and take up a roster spot that could be better spent on a hard-nosed rookie who actually hits people.

Incidentally, was anyone else pissed that they kept saying Jeremi was on the street because of a knee issue on EVERY episode of Hard Knocks? And also by the fact that we keep fullbacks for their receiving ability over their blocking ability, and tight ends for their blocking ability and not their receiving ability? Isn't that backwards?

Well said, WCH. Chris Pressley should be on the team, and fatass should be on the street. How the hell do you come to camp and get BIGGER?!? Unreal.

Maybe Jeremi Johnson can play tight end. Nobody else can. They haven't had a good one since Holman.

Surprise. We've kept Marvin for how long? Brat for how long? We won't let players that don't want to be here leave, opting for them to be cancerous in the locker room. Family members as inept as their father/step father that are running the organization.

We make Al Davis look like a young, intuitive thinker.
