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?”

Steelers lose!!!! Steelers lose!!!! LOL Steelers fans can not say jack. Thank you KC.

Go Bengals

What's ironic about that, Michael, is that I checked the message boards for the PIT/KC game after it went final and the ONLY thing I was seeing out of Steelers fans was "Bengals suck," "Cincinnati enjoys playing in a division with real teams with six rings," and et cetera.

What? None of that is even relevant, nevermind accurate. I think it's telling how under the skin of the Pittsburgh fans the Bengals have become, that in a game they lost to the Chiefs their immediate reaction is that the Bengals must still suck worse, somehow. Huh?

Anyone else have flashbacks to Week 1 New England/Buffalo watching Caldwell idiotically run that ball out of the endzone? Even if he doesn't fumble it, it was a moronic decision.

Third down and 5 or so inside 2 minutes. Play call - fade to your third string running back.

Inside the 20 in the 4th quarter. Play call - up the middle to Jeremi Johnson.

Thanks Professor Bratkowski.

Y'know, I hate to say it, but I'd take 2 wins a piece every year against the Ravens and especially the Steelers, even if the Bengals dropped a single game like this every season. I just hope this isn't 2006 all over again (or pretty much every other year where it seemed like the Bengals had a legitimate shot at the playoffs and ended up choking it away).

Best case scenario? Gradkowski proves to be legit and goes on to lead Oakland to victories down the stretch, thus hopefully negating the psychological damage inflicted on the Bengals by this game.

Bad coaching (hand off to rarely used fullback & putting Caldwell back to return kicks) leads to 2 bad fumbles.
0 QB hits today. Where were the blitzes at? Can't remember more than 5 or 6 of them.
20 pass attempts going into the last drive, 43 rushes.
22 rushes for 58 yards by guys not named B. Scott.
20 rushes for 58 yards for B. Scott if you take out his 61 yarder.
That's 42 rushes for 116 yards.

Even as a Bengal fan, not sure I've seen this poorly of a coached game by a staff not led by Dick Jauron.
Some other random plays to point out-The double reverse fake shovel pass to B. Scott. The 3rd and short go route to Leonard. The 2nd and goal from the 8 roll out play where the only options where the Ocho in double coverage in the endzone or JP w/ a little opening at the 5.

Awkward, awful play calling on both sides of the ball.

Unbelievable. Just un-fucking-believable......

We should do a survey on the Bengals team's (i.e. the guys on the field) worst problem...

I think it's ball security.

They've held on to win games before, this time they didn't


Dear Andre Calwell:

1. A football is not a loaf of bread (nor is it a
loaded gun, if that's how you carry your bread)

2. You are not Bernard Scott during a game-opening
kickoff return against Oakland in week 11, 2009


Dr. Pigskin, PhD, football psychiatrics...

Dear Andre Calwell:

Hold onto the ball next week, and I'll spell your name correctly, but not right now...because that just was not you

Well that was absolutely crap-fu-king-tastic. No other way to put it. This team is officially back in the PRETENDER category. In fact you might say from this weekend that the whole AFC North is full of pretenders, given the egg laid by the Stillers.

1. The game loss ball starts with the lines. The offensive line and running backs nearly got Carson Palmer killed, wasting two drives with massively costly sacks (one fumble, one missed field goal). Whereas the defensive line got ZERO pressure on Gradkowski, making him look really good. The Bengals actually did blitz a few times, and those were picked up without trouble.

2. Number two negative game ball is Bratkowski's idiotic game plan that featured way too many carries for zero yards. Even though they got one long run out of Bernard Scott, there were a lot of second and huge downs. And they ran on a bunch of those too, resulting in way too many third and huge downs. After some of those were converted, throwing the ball, even still they did not throw enough on first down. When Carson wasn't on his back the pass offense was working okay.

3. Number three negative game ball goes to Marvin Lewis for putting up with that old-school Bengals conservatism. When you are on the road protecting a 7 point lead you don't f-cking try to run out six minutes of clock unless you have John Riggins and the Hogs. And they don't. You go for the jugular. I was sitting there thinking they could easily give up a score and end up in OT. That old school Bengals defense came right out on the field, and helped lose the game too, allowing a fourth down conversion and getting completely turned around on the TD pass. That's the Bengals defense we've come to know and cringe about.

What would a decent coach do now?

1. They have to frickin' get Andre Smith playing THIS YEAR, not 2010. There's no excuse for sitting him. This offensive line is definitely NOT that great that they can afford to have the sixth pick in the draft sitting on his a*s the whole season. The 49ers are getting immediate production out of holdout Crabtree. Where the hell is HippopotaSmith?

2. They really need to get another pass-catching threat. If not Chase Coffman, then sign someone else, or try throwing the ball to Purify. They need a bigger middle-of-the field guy.

3. Bratkowski still sucks. News at 11. A play they should have been trying were some quick slants to Ocho (which worked the one time they tried it). Also, has Brat ever heard of a screen pass? The Raiders were teeing off on passing downs.

4. From what I saw of the no-Ced offense, if Ced cannot go next week they better give a long look to Larry Johnson. This is not a great running football team. This is not your 1988 Bengals. They were delusional to think so. And Scott and Leonard, as much as I like them, are not capable of being Jerome Benson.

I feel like I need a shower. After that game, I don't think much of this team. They made Gradkowski look great, and that's something any crappy Bengals team of yore could have achieved.

"After that game, I don't think much of this team"

To be fair I think they really missed Cedric Benson today...he's the one who's been putting the drive in their running game, not anyone's play-calling.

Also, I think the signing of Larry Johnson mid-season was/is a bit of a distraction.

I also think they took this game lightly. Otherwise, they would have scored thirty points,
and the Rai-DUHRRRs would have scored only three if that.
