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?”

Sly, You out did yourself this week. That may be the best picture on the internet.

These Bengals look like a real team so far (posted at 14-0, Bengals about to score again). Looks like the play calling is actually a little better too.

In fact, the only negative I'm drawing from this so far is that all the "Shut down WDR" posts are probably about to return en masse.

How are they murdering Da Bears with out the snow tiger Brian Leanord?

It certainly would be humiliating and horribly painful beyond all possible measurement if the bengals were to find a way to lose this. Yes. Yes, it would.

Of course, it would also be immensely satisfying if they won 45-10. What a great game.

I was actually worried about this game...


Bob Bratkowski didn't watch Gilmore Girls this week and instead watched Bears game film. He then called the game of his life. After that Side show Bob pulled out his dong and slapped the entire revolution in the face with it.

Remember that scene from Old School where Will Ferrell out debates Jim Carville, then asks "What happened, I blacked out." Bob Bratkowski, congratulations you just out debated the Bears. Something about blind squirrels and nuts???

Cutler looked my balls this week. Man, it was good to see that win. I think 11-5 is a very real possibility.

JM that is EXACTLY what happened! Perfect analogy.

you guys have no right to root for the bengals after boycotting there tickets .... you were not at the game and refuse to root for them.... you have no right to cheer for them... i hope a real bengals finds out who you are because i know you are cheering with the real fans who were at the game

i hope you get smacked in the face

after this you will wrtite another blog botcotting the games... i hope you know you have no right to attend the games even after this big win. even they go the playoffs you have no right.... far weather fan doochbags... you will bitch all of the revilution and as soon as they go the playoffs you will get tickets

screw you doochbags... wear your shirts so w can "show? you how we feel

one game does not make a franchise.... to the above poster.. suck it..

x2 I guess if Al Davis and the Raiders made the playoffs next year "screw the revolution" would basque himself in the praises of the Raiders front office.

I watch every single bengals game, buy tickets off of people, and bring my own food to the games.

People dont get it. We want the best for the bengals. And an aging idiot isnt enough for a city so dedicated.

See above where I called the influx. "Fair weather" is defined by appearing when the team does well and disappearing when they don't. So tell me, screwtherevolution, where were you last week on this site?

Mm, yeah. Thought so. You need to make like Michael Jackson and start with the man in the mirror.

Hilarious how one or two games brings on the hate. When the Bengals get back to sucking, which they inevitably have to thanks to Mike Brown, the revolution haters all vanish. But they never blame themselves for enabling the suckiness.

Bengals record since the beginning of the 2003 season: 51-51-1.


I'd *LIKE* to tear your post to shreds, ridiculing you for you complete and total inability to construct even a basic sentence from start to finish in actual English; however, this is the kinder, gentler me, so I'll just say:

Thank you for the enlightening post - your point is noted, and after careful consideration, disregarded, because I can't possibly agree with you. After all, it's the "real fans" who are still calling for a change even in the face of a 5-2 season and the most lopsided victory in two decades. We're the fans who want this to become something commonplace and expected, as opposed to the highly joyous moment (with an equally cautious restraint due to the inevitable letdown) that it has become.

Also, did anyone listen to the Bengals recap on 700/1530 after the game? I was driving back to Philadelphia from my home in Western PA, so it was fading in and out, but this is the first time I've been able to listen since 2005, and this guy is even worse than Cutler. Not only does he disregard his callers and ignore valid criticisms (one guy was trying to make the point that the offense has this potential but the playcalling kills them on a weekly basis, and he just blew him off like four times before hanging up), but he's also a stuttering turd who repeats himself waaaaaaaay too often. If I had to hear about the Maalox they gave the "loudmouth Bears fans" (alternated with how nice and friendly the Bears fans were at approximately 30 minute intervals) or how the "Bengals sent the Bears back to Chicago as the Cubs" (which once was followed up with, "I thought the Bears played baseball"), I was about to stab my ears with a fork.

hey screwtherevolution...please learn how to spell. If you aren't smart enough to spell "boycott", "douchebag" or "revolution", you should probably find another website because this one is too advanced for you. I hear Hobson is always looking for good help over on with the rest of the Kool-Aid drinkers.

I'd like to thank the person that stood in for Crapkowski today, that was one hell of an offensive game.

Happy to get a win - don't see a practice dome yet though. More injuries will come with cold weather and our underperforming med staff will keep us wondering why they can't get Brian Leonard back on the field.

For now, I'll take the win, and the soft second half schedule; let's see what happens!


Credit where credit is due guys: The Palmerface is unstoppable.

You know what I'm talking about. It's that wild-eyed, teeth-baring snarl Carson has before every ball he unleashes. How could it not freeze the secondary in their shivering little boots?

Palmerface: 1 Bears: 0

i think people who put time effort and money into this sight week after week, admins or just fans, are far from fair weather... we were the ones helpin the powers at be put up the billboards last year by the stadium and fly the planes over the training camp when we could only win 4.5 games, most at the end of the season due to playing shit teams, and still claimed to be fans, i still wear my colors and caught shit for it week after week for the past few years, right now, i can actually talk some shit back and its great, but yes, it is still the bengals, and we still have far to go, hopfuly the good start will snowball and maybe mikey will feel a small amount of happiness due to the odd feeling of being victorious and start to make decent fukin decisions with the teams he owns... but regardless, if you don't like the sight, and don't agree with the views of it, why would you waste time to come and attempt talking shit to a bunch of people who could honestly give a fuck what you think.... that aside

@ feedmikebrowntoaquabengal .... your name kicks face

and bengals nation, how fuckin perfect was this a way to roll into bye week, beautiful game


Without anyone getting angry or defensive I just want to know one thing...

Will supporters of this site still not attend the games even if they go to the playoffs?

I will not attend the game even if they go to the playoffs. Second i would like to say it is like a light switch 3 weeks ago haters on the site last week a loss makes us lose them and then this week they are back. I would go as far as to say they are related to BOB because they are so damn predictable its not funny.

I received an e-mail already from the Bengal's Ticket Office trying to get me to buy a "Who Dey Pack" which would guarantee me a ticket for the playoff game. A little ahead of ourselves aren't we?

I have to for once give Bratkowski some major credit... his performance yesterday was the equivalent of waiting for your newborn baby to utter his first word and having him start quoting Shakespeare.

If I could afford to attend playoff games I would not. The goal is long term excellence, not short term fluke winning. Mike Brown's "organization" is incapable of excellence, since he is a buffoon turned into a near-billionaire by the city's largesse and the asset price appreciation of a legalized monopoly.

New York, NY - So I was watching the game at Phebe's in NYC (eating a Skyline 4-Way) and who should walk in with her friends and sit down next to us but Sienna Miller! This is the closest I'll ever come to being on a date with Sienna Miller, but I'm counting it. The Baroness texted a lot and left at halftime, but I still think this means she's an official celebrity Comrade. A nice bonus on a great day in Bengaldom.

Wyatt, the person you refer to doing the post game is none other than Seg Dennison, a ridiculously obese idiot that tried to be the Wild Man. I listened as well (a long as I could stand to) and heard the same things you complain about. I however, find him easier on the ears than the Cut man, primarily becuase it's easier to take buffoonery from a buffoon, which Seg is, Cutler was a derisive mad little Giants fan, mad he couldn't do what he was doing for us, for NYG, guy's morning show was terrible too.
Ced's a beast
Carson appears to be back in 05 form
BRAT actually called a solid game all the way through (doesn't hurt when your horse goes the f*#k off though)
Chad's in 05 form
Henry's ready,
Coles is contributing every week,
O-line is cohesive and played smart and strong yesterday
LOVE the secondary, but we're so thin, that scares me
This team could play with ANYONE, there that good, if that makes me a kool aid drinker, sign me up, I see a hell of a good football team, short on bench talent on the D side, but a good team regardless.
I would not attend a playoff game unless I fell into some pre purchased free tickets (like a corporate set that someone I know couldn't go to), other than that, no, i would not.

Reasons to be pessimistic: No depth, so an injury in the secondary, or to one of the offensive stars, means it's over. Plus it's the Bengals.

Reasons to be optimistic: Actually the biggest reason to be optimistic is that HippopotaSmith hasn't played a down. Rookie draft pick that correlates most with teams taking a big step up? OFFENSIVE LINE. If the HippoMan gets in there and plays somewhere close to number six potential, then look out. Also: although I am thinking more and more that Chase Coffman is going to be a BUST, if he actually got active and was any kind of threat to catch the ball down the middle, again, look out.

Considering the 5-2 record and they haven't had a single down from two of their top four picks, that's pretty startling.

But as a 25 year Bengal fan I'm mostly pessimistic. It's a defensive measure.

"I have to for once give Bratkowski some major credit... his performance yesterday was the equivalent of waiting for your newborn baby to utter his first word and having him start quoting Shakespeare."

Was it? I'm not trying to be contrary for contrary's sake, but I did find this:

" "It's embarrassing to come out and play like that," defensive end Alex Brown said. "We represent the Chicago Bears, and we shouldn't play like that. They did whatever they wanted to."

What's surprising about that is the Bears said later that nothing Cincinnati did on offense surprised them. The Bengals ran the same patterns. They called the same runs. They showed the same tendencies. The only difference was how the Bears responded. Basically, they didn't. In fact, they were so atrocious that the first two Cincinnati drives looked more like 7-on-7 drills."

Was this really the Bengals calling an offensive masterpiece, or the Bears just experiencing the ultimate defensive meltdown? I guess we'll find out in a couple weeks.

Answer: Bears defensive meltdown. Plus Carson Palmer played great. It wasn't Brat's sudden genius playcalling, that's for sure. Heck I still saw four or five spots where Carson audibled and I said to myself, "it's a run" and sure enough Benson ran for at most 1 or 2 on that carry.

The Bears stink on the road, have stunk for most of the last two seasons.

Benson's one Wildcat run has been noted, but I saw what I thought was another new wrinkle Sunday, and no one (here or anywhere else I've read) has talked about it. I didn't see the Houston game, so maybe it isn't as new as I think: lining up in what looks to me like an upside down wishbone, with both JJ and Coates split in front of Benson. It was pretty effective vs the Bears. Yeah, it telegraphs "run", but not to which side.

Any thoughts on this?

I did see the Wild Benson formation and was suprised a little. The wing-T type formation was a heavy run indicator, but I think it was the same formation that led to JP's TD catch. I agree w/ AquaBengal, CP needs to find a new audible, but I did see some new wrinkles in the O. As long as Brat remembers where he wrote those plays, we should see good stuff against the Ravens.
