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?”

Mort: Bengals wanted Martellus Bennett
Posted by Mike Florio on October 22, 2009 9:51 AM ET
ESPN's Chris Mortenson reports that the Cincinnati Bengals are the team who was interested in swinging a trade with the Dallas Cowboys and that, as we had been hearing, the target was tight end Martellus Bennett.

It makes sense -- the Bengals have been struggling at the tight end position, due to a rash of injuries that began during training camp, when Reggie Kelly torn an Achilles' tendon and Ben Utecht suffered a serious concussion.

Still, the Cowboys said no. Despite the presence of Jason Witten, Bennett gets plenty of playing time when the Cowboys use two tight ends.

Well if Mortenson is right then the Bengals think Chase Coffman is a huge bust. Like the guy they drafted from San Jose State with a 3rd round pick.

Trying to make the trade doesn't mean they thing Coffman is a huge bust, just that he needs another year to get ready. Rey Rey is our future MLB but since he is a rookie the bengals are putting him at OLB untill he can grow into a new roll. Under your logic he must be a bust then since he can't play MLB yet. Same process they could throw Coffman out there but why should they, why not let him learn the game first. They did the same thing with Carson.

And, finally, I get some statistical back-up that offensive holding calls are FAR FAR less damaging to this team than letting that guy they just held get by them and take the franchise QB out.

So what that means is the team tried to prove they were trying to fix the problem but did not do enough to get it done.

Yeah RK,

so you think if the Cowboys wanted our next years first and second round pick the Bengals should have done it?

What is with people like you? I get blaming them for some things, but it is not the front offices fault that it has been unseasonably cold lately or you got a flat tire on the way to work.

The Bengals should not sacrifice the future of the team just so they can get someone's second string tight end this year.

No but they should put effort in to a problem that has been around since befor the season. Instead they wait till the deadline try for someones second string and when they come away empty handed they say we tried, but since the deadline is here there is nothing we can do. HOW ABOUT THIS address the issues when they happen and they are small and you have NO big issues.

When were they supposed to address the issue??? Kelly and utecht got hurt in the preseason. It's not like Witten or Gates were sitting out there waiting to be signed at that point.

They were supposed to address it as soon as they realized coffman was a work in progress because they know the other guys had hands of stone.

See what you done Smartass I actually took you serious untill i reread the post.

Y'know, there was a Tony Gonzales out there in the offseason to at least tender a token offer for. Just saying.
