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?”

A very small but consistent crowd at Sundays game was booing whenever a tackle was made by the Chiefs Mike Brown.Perhaps something to put into the Project Mayhem idea box for the future

I was part of that small crowd. It was hilarious. Mike Brown had 8 solo tackles, (13 total), so he was doing everything he could to impede the Bengals' success on offense.

"As we have discussed previously, Mike Zimmer is a very good head coach." Hmmmmmm I didn't know that Zimmer WAS a head coach. I always thought that he was the Coach of the Defense? Now, if speaking euphamistically, I could understand but there is nothing to indicate that. If it is your desire that he become the head coach of a team, that's your opinion (and I kind of think that I agree with the possibility of him getting his chance). If you just messed up on your verbage...

Fat Chance
No Dice
Close (or not) but no Cigar
No Way Jose

Not a chance in hell the Brownburns pay Zim what he's worth, if they were going to, they would have already, enjoy him and his D now, because these are the last shows folks. Next year? Perhaps Mikey will look towards Kevin Coyle, or Jay Hayes, or Jeff Fitzgerald (who would be the most palatable replacement from in house if you ask me).

What about moving Marvin to GM and giving Zimmer the head coaching job. Not to get rid of Marvin, but it could be a best case scenario for keeping both of them around with Zimmer's contract done this year and Marvin's next.

They need to resign him now...Okay you don't want to give us a Indoor practice facility or a General manager but DO NOT LET ZIMMER WALK...

Pay him as a top Defensive Coordinator like he should be and put in his contract that hes the Bengals next HC if Marvin ever leaves.

I like ML as GM and MZ as HC. However, if that was to happen, I think I would likely drop dead from shock.

Won't happen. Zimmer, in my mind, is already out the door, which stinks because his revamp of the D is probably responsible for about 80% of our success this year .

@guttersnake: Problem with ML as GM is we don't really know if he's any good at drafting. Thanks to being shut out of the Pro Bowl yet again, the Bengals have gone SIX YEARS since they last drafted a Pro Bowl player. That is the longest draught in franchise history! Even longer than any of the Shula days! You want a GM who is a great judge of talent. In my mind, if ML is responsible for some of the picks since 2003, then he's not a great judge of talent.

Hire Mike Zimmer as head coach!! I like like Zimmer and they way he isn't ever happy because they haven't played a perfect game. He's always proud of the guys, but is pissed that the Cheifs scored a touchdown for example. You listen to Marvin Lewis's press conferences and its the same thing week after week! "You know our guys played well, we got a couple things to work on (which I think he just says that to make people happy, doesn't seem like anything ever gets fixed on offense. but that might be more of a play calling problem).

I think we all feel the same way about Zimmer as HC. He seems like he'd do a better job than Marvin Lewis.

The team still desperately needs a real GM no matter who is HC.

I wouldn't say ML is a bad judge of talent. We have had some solid draft choices especially #1 picks for defense. Most of the picks that didn't work out are because of the character and off field issues well documented in the past, but there were some good players in that group (Thurman). I would attribute taking chances on character issues to working within the budget constraints and oversight of the 'redeemer' MB. I would think ML would be a good gm for the bengals because of his good working relationship with MB. He is also very familiar with the franchise and how to work best within the obvious disadvantages. To move MZ to head coach and ML to gm would be a promotion for both and be the best for the franchise. Of course it will never happen because it would be two steps forward not back.

the skins think zimmer is theirs:
