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;

    Introduction

    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?”

You can tease if you want, but I would think this format will in fact have a lot of front offices circling around themselves and tricking themselves into making stupid calls. Marvin is simply advocating for level-headedness.

Translation: Expect no trades of picks... again.

If they have no intention of trading up or down -- which we all know they don't -- then what is the need to change anything? The player grades are what they are at that point.

They will do the same thing that they did when the Saints leap-frogged them to snatch Sedrick Ellis... shrug their shoulders and pick from whoever is left.

Well we all know Rain Man's strategy was to not outsmart himself either, and look how that worked out.

That article's enough to make any grown Bengals fan cry. If only San Fran had traded up and gotten Eddie Brown, leaving lowly Jerry Rice for the Bengals to pick. Think the second Bengals/San Fran Super Bowl would've gone any differently?

Hey Stalin,

Thanks for the crappy post. Really insightful. Take a note from SWB and do some analysis. His draft post on the G/C from the Gators was excellent and then you had to dump on it with this crap. Way to go!

A 30 day draft format??

still love every scrap I have left in my stash and ever project I've done with it! Thanks

for sharing.
People are always telling you what to do, but what's right for them may not be right for

you.
